Rock Cellar Magazine has the recent Independent Project Records’ release from Shiva Burlesque – Mercury Blues + Skulduggery – on its list of “Under-the-Radar Releases/Reissues” of 2022. “Before Grant Lee Buffalo arrived in the early 1990s to enchant college and alt-rock radio listeners,” the site writes, “its three members spent time in the hazy, jarring alternative band Shiva Burlesque. Sophomore album Mercury Blues bears touchstones of fellow California groups Concrete Blonde and Camper Van Beethoven as well as Echo and the Bunnymen… The new remastered 2-CD version has fresh artwork, archival photos, detailed liner notes by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke and a handcrafted design package on CD and vinyl. Disc 2, titled Skulduggery, includes 10 previously unreleased demos.”
