Digitally remastered and re-packaged second album from pre-Grant Lee Buffalo. Shiva Burlesque was a band working in the underground music scene of Los Angeles in the mid-to-late 1980's. Singer and songwriter Jeffrey Clark and guitarist, songwriter, and singer Grant Lee Phillips had moved to LA from California's San Joaquin Valley, and after various false starts and shifting line-ups their group coalesced with Joey Peters on drums and James Brenner on bass. Built on the interplay of Clark's voice and lyrics, Phillips' Twin Reverb- driven acoustic guitar, Peters' "galloping" drumming style, and Brenner's bowed and plucked upright acoustic bass, In 1987, the band self-financed and recorded a nine song album at Radio Tokyo, a small studio in Venice Beach. They then secured a modest deal with a label run by Bruce Licher, (founder of Savage Republic, as well as Independent Projects). When the album was released in 1988 it garnered unusually strong critical attention, and ended up on the Best of the Year lists of many music publications, including Rolling Stone and England's Melody Maker. The band also made an impressive live showing at the New Music Seminar in New York that summer. Late in '88 Brenner left Shiva Burlesque and was replaced by midwest transplant and self-described "Stravinsky and Velvet Underground" fan Paul Kimble. Despite a few overtures the band did not secure a major label deal, but instead began working on their second album, Mercury Blues. Produced at the Village Recorder in West LA. and released at the end of 1990 by Dutch label Play it Again Sam, Mercury Blues was in many ways an even more fully realized work than the first album; and over its twelve songs displayed a brilliant palette of emotions, arrangements and musical ideas. The Shivas' sound was now augmented by cellist Greg Adamson; and Grant Lee Phillips sang on several tracks. Like the first album, Mercury Blues received enthusiastic critical notice, and by then a groundswell was slowly beginning to shift the American music scene in favor of rawer, more direct sounding groups.
