Food For Other Fish
The Mermen's first CD release, "Food For Other Fish", became one of 1994's top-selling discs in the Bay Area. That album, recorded live to two-track DAT, rose to the top of the airplay chart on local KUSF-FM, and became the station's #3 most-played record of the year. Thasher Magazine named The Mermen one of the "Top Discoveries"of 1994, and the band became a top-draw act at every Bay Area venue, including the Warfield Theatre and The Fillmore (where they played to sold-out crowds on New Year's Eve in 1995 and 1996). They've shared the stage with a staggering list of performers, ranging from Rancid, Les Claypool (Primus), David Byrne, Morphine to Midnight Oil, Chris Isaak, David Lindley, The Cramps and even Nancy Sinatra and Tiny Tim.
