Ltd edition transparent green vinyl 10“ from David Baker (ex-Mercury Rev), including Silver Apples Re-mix. Fire Records are proud to announce the signing of Variety Lights, the new band from David Baker, legendary frontman of the original incarnation of Mercury Rev. After leaving the public spotlight more than 18 years ago, Baker returns with his collaborator, Will MacLean, to debut the remarkable psyche-delic-synth album Central Flow. The lead track is, appropriately, “Silent Too Long”, which will be released as an exclusive single for Record Store Day. As a founding member and vocalist for Mercury Rev, Baker helped to forge their revolutionary sound with their first two (and most critically acclaimed) albums; ‘Yerself Is Steam’ (1991) & ‘Boces’ (1993).
