Nick Saloman of The Bevis Frond in deep conversation in issue 26 of the legendary Bucketfull Of Brains fanzine, talking about his ‘Triptych’ album, his contribution to Mick Wills’ ‘Fern Hill’ project, acid jams and all that good stuff, including the idea of recording an album down the Fleet sewer – one that still sparks the imagination but hasn’t been brought into life yet. There’s also talk about the Frond’s unique cover of ‘Hey Joe’, the first psychedelic record Nick ever bought, and why his mum sings vocals on it. (Not to mention the fact that in his youth he owned a cardboard Jimi Hendrix coat hanger – beat that Radiohead!
