Furious Fancies

by Wild Mercy

Furious Fancies is jazz played on a lever harp; bodhran-driven rock; tight vocal harmonies and too many instruments for just four people. It's something for everyone, with a Celtic twist.

Album Notes
About the CD: Furious Fancies is Wild Mercy's second CD, and it shows a strong Celtic rock influence while also mixing in things like Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood." The bluesy "Their Music" and the cutting humor of the re-mixed fairy tales in "Po' Boys" showcase the songwriting breadth of Chicago singer-songwriter Martha Coady Fabish, while "Gravity Exiles" brings updated lyrics to the "Nottamun Town" tune, offering travel advice to aliens passing near our planet.

About the band: Wild Mercy is an Indianapolis-based eclectic Celtic band consisting of Jen Midkiff, Debbie Gates, Sally Childs-Helton and Barry Childs-Helton. "But what do you play?" the discerning listener asks. We could tell you it's "neo-Celtic-powered post-industrial electro-acoustic folk-rock with jazz blues, and world influences." We could tell you we are influenced by Hildegard of Bingen, Frank Zappa, Bruce Cockburn and Loreena McKennitt -- all at the same time. But mostly we're four friends on a journey of musical, spiritual, and creative exploration. We play the stuff that makes us all grin maniacally or sigh together in contentment. Come join the journey!
