Mercury Rev’s feature a couple of weeks back got me thinking. No live gig has been more of a disappointment than Home’s was in 2000. (I have convinced myself the Glass Spider tour never happened.) Their album XIV was the sort of experimental pop americana that I was lapping up at that time. With echoes of Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev, it was no surprise to find out that it was also produced by David Fridmann. But even more noticeably than Mercury Rev, without Fridmann’s studio production on show, Home were a complete let down in the flesh. This studio version of ‘Burden’ is anything but.
