Formed in Buffalo, New York in the late 1980’s, Mercury Rev have continued to surprise and enlighten listeners for over a decade and a half with their maverick musical explorations.

Mercury Rev began recording what was to become Deserter’s Songs during 1997 at Dave Fridmann’s Tarbox Recording Studio. It was released in 1998 to world-wide acclaim. On this influential album, Mercury Rev reinvented itself with sweeping orchestrations and poetically heartfelt lyrics. It would herald a rebirth for the band, allowing for further experimentation and thrill-seeking. It was chosen as album of the year by the NME, MOJO, and many other international music publications. The songs “Goddess on a Hiway”, “Holes”, and “Opus 40” have become classics which have taken on a mythical life all their own.

In 2011 the band will return to Dublin on May 18th to perform this classic in it’s entirety as part of the ATP Don’t Look Back season, a series which has previously featured such albums as The Stooges’ Fun House, Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation and Spiritualized’s Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space.
