Ltd edition transparent green vinyl 10" from David Baker (ex-Mercury Rev), including Silver Apples Remix.

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 psychedelic-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). Having left the band in 93, Baker went on to release a solo album 'World' under the moniker Shady, which featured members of the Boo Radleys, Rollerskate Skinny, Swervedriver and Th' Faith Healers. Although there has been much speculation about his life during his time away from the public eye, Baker has continued to make recordings & is an avid music fan, working as a producer for various artists. Now he is back, morphed and transmogrified into Variety Lights.
