The Bevis Frond – New River Head Double LP
“Within such an impressive body of work, New River Head is certainly the crown jewel. One of the headier agglomerations of the past decade, it’s non-grasping pace and epic palette issue the breezy confidence of an unmistakable classic” Pitchfork
“New River Head winds up being a slice of Frond at his high-powered best” All Music
Following this year’s Record Store Day reissues of ‘Miasma’ and ‘Inner Marshland’, The Bevis Frond will be reissuing their catalogue in the lead up to the 30th Anniversary next year.
“The perfect point of entry into his catalogue” (Popmatters), ‘New River Head’ is the second studio album and seventh full length release which is widely regarded as the finest. ‘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. ‘Undertaker’ and ‘Chinese Burn’ bursts with garage-rock and ‘Waving’ delves more into British folk-rock territory.
‘New River Head’ is released on double vinyl with gatefold sleeve and CD alongside ‘Any Gas Faster’ and ‘London Stone’ which are released in July 2016.
