The Bevis Frond – Vavona Burr LP
1000 only. 20th anniversary 2LP edition on white vinyl and with new artwork.
“Another collection of self-recorded, plays-every-instrument-pop/psych-rock” All Music.
A special 20th anniversary reissue out on double LP limited edition white vinyl that comes with new artwork. It’s end of the millennium music, an album from 1999 when we were all convinced that Y2K was going to take out the whole planet at midnight on December 31. It’s The Bevis Frond’s 17th studio album, filled with half recalled dreams and acquaintances – there’s Don Lang (a 1950s trombonist who died earlier in the decade), there’s Jesus (an omnipresent head who danced barefoot at all those Roundhouse gigs in the ‘70s), there’s Wilson, Kepple And Betty doing the ‘One Leg Sand Dance’, Che Guevara, John And Yoko, Joe The Dealer, there’s the girl in ‘In Your Eyes’ who couldn’t make breaking up any harder. This is introspection at its best, a lo-fi mighty personal verse with a huge aching chorus.
