The Bevis Frond – Inner Marshland LP
Following the unexpected success of The Bevis Frond’s debut, 1987’s “Inner Marshland” originally was recorded via the home studio four-track portastudio set up that was used for the debut album in Walthamstow, UK. Recorded over 12 months, “Inner Marshland” features the anglophile’s dreamscape of “Termination Station Grey”, the epic psych-blues-rock rave up of “I’ve Got Eyes in the Back of My Head” and so much more, with Nick Saloman’s guitar always leading the way.
A labour of love and fiercely independent, his prolific output has seen as many releases in as many years, an uncompromising vision all under his own label Woronzow. Hailed as “a Hendrix devotee ever 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.
