The main strength of the Bevis Frond is the exquisite songwriting, with pithy and poignant lyrics delivered in a very uncompromising English roots accent.

" The Quietus. “Saloman has remained a niche concern amongst purist psych fiends these past 30 years" MOJO. Originally released in a signed limited-edition record of 500 copies, then reissued as a double-LP set on Reckless Records in 1988, this year’s Record Store Day sees the record reissued on double clear vinyl alongside ‘Triptych’ and ‘The Auntie Winnie Album’ as part of the 30th Anniversary. This historical collection of Bevis Frond songs includes ‘Rat In A Waistcoat’, ‘The Shrine’ and ‘I Can’t Get Into Your Scene’. Closing track includes ‘Alastair Jones’ recorded in 1967 when Nick was just 14 years old. A labour of love and fiercely independent, his prolific output has seen as many releases in as many years and an uncompromising vision under his own label Woronzow. Hailed as “a Hendrix devotee every bit as tough and contemporary as the serrated guitar chorales of Sonic Youth and Pixies" by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, his immense psych-stoner-rock has seen him become a cult figure in his own right. The Bevis Frond’s legion of loyal fans includes Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr and Mary Lou Lord, who have all covered his music. 1000 only
