Back in the day, Record Collector enthused and mentioned Burnt Weenie Sandwich era Zappa”, “The Pretty Things” and “Byrds with attitude”. The set, some 70 minutes-plus closes with a 14-minute prog rock corker and inbetween; there’s the usual Frondisms – Beatles-esque couplets, minor chord progressions, Bond-esque echo, folk rock masterclasses, baroque pop and all the well-thumbed pages of the psych pop song book.
Originally released in 2002, two years after Valedictory Songs, The Bevis Frond returned with a more progressive sound with complex structures and instrumentation. Bursting with their trademark guitar licks, impeccable songwriting and a more upbeat sound. Available on Double Vinyl for the first time ever, lovingly packaged in a gatefold sleeve for Record Store Day
