The Bevis Frond New River Head on Limited Edition 2LP + Download
Following Record Store Day reissues of Miasma and Inner Marshland in 2016, The Bevis Frond will be reissuing the remainder of their catalogue in the lead up to their 30th Anniversary next year. New River Head is the second studio album and seventh full length release from the group, widely regarded as their finest. Originally issued in 1990, this was Nick Saloman's second foray into Gold Dust Studios in Bromley, this time with a few friends adding bits and pieces here and there as well as Martin Crowley behind the traps as on the previous album, Any Gas Faster. "The Miskatonic Variations II" is a 17-minute psychedelic noise rock odyssey with exhilarating guitar solos and features guest vocals from Current 93's David Tibet while "Undertaker" and "Chinese Burn" burst with garage-rock and "Waving" delves more into British folk-rock territory. New River Head is presented here on double vinyl with gatefold sleeve and download card.
