Cellophane – Hang Ups – Vinyl Record
Brand new, never played , unsealed
Amplified Mint / Jungle Records 1994 UK
The Mint label, an imprint of Jungle by Graham Combi, developed into a loose family of linked artists leading from the first two signings, Mercury Rev and Mutton Gun. Mutton Gun, whose David Boyd went on to run the successful Hut Records at Virgin, featured Dean Wareham on their album as well as various Chills. David introduced Dean to Mint, resulting in the solo single Anesthesia in-between his Galaxie 500 and Luna projects.
Coincidentally, Dean guested on Mercury Revs Car Wash Hair, and Revs Jimmy Chambers in turn played drums on Deans single. The circle was later completed when Rev members guested on Mutton Guns third album. Mercury Rev fans will be particularly delighted to find Car Wash Hair available again. Still a highlight of their live set, when released in 1991 it was acclaimed by the press as one of the best singles of the year, but was deleted in 1993. Chasing A Bee from Yerself Is Steam also features.
Meanwhile, Revs Jonathan Donohue had been staying in Oklahoma after being a member of The Flaming Lips. There he came across Radial Spangle, recommended them to Mint, and played on their album, which was produced by Revs Dave Fridmann. Later, Jonathon came across ex-Agit Pop Cellophane from Poughkeepsie, helping out on their album too.
