MERCURY REV (London Oslo, 18/12/18)

The 123rd and final gig of 2018, and a truly special way to wrap another year of my uncontrollable live music addiction. Nicole Atkins was a minor revelation in support (Jim Sclavunos from The Bad Seeds even popped up for a few songs) and let's face it, any set incorporating Sean from the High Llamas, a cover of Pavement's "Here" and a closing run of Goddess On A Hiway->Holes->Opus 40 (with extended 'Krautrock Odyssey' outro)->The Dark Is Rising was never going to disappoint.
