Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
If there is any artist who could be considered as having followed a tangential path from Hendrix to Big Star to Spacemen 3, that would be The Bevis Frond...and that's not hyperbole, the evidence is to be found in countless albums over 30 years of thrilling musical innovation that few have matched. Filtered through The Groundhogs, The Who, Neil Young, Captain Beefheart and Kevin Ayers, this is an iconoclastic collision of distinctly British psychedelia, space-rock, grunge, slow-burning soulful laments, even grizzled folk and more than occasional moments of sublime pop genius. Yet, he remains the best kept secret in Rock ‘n' Roll – isn't it about time you discovered one of England's finest songwriters and insightful lyricists.
Released on colored double vinyl, The Auntie Winnie Album will be reissued alongside Bevis Through The Looking Glass and Triptych as part of The Bevis Frond's 30th Anniversary. Initially released in 1988, the companion piece to Bevis Through The Looking Glass is comprised of unreleased material from the Woronzow archives. It's the last of his earlier releases that finds the influential multi-instrumentalist Nick Saloman performing solo throughout.
A labor of love and fiercely independent, Saloman's 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.
