CD Reviews

Incredibly great out-takes album! with "Hendrix" flair!

"This is great to see and hear on one cd!

The Frond are ,pretty much,just Nick Saloman on this set of songs! But he can make some classic sounds here that rival the original "classics"!

For all who've never heard this stuff...Mr.Saloman plays burning "hendrix-ian" riffs throughout this beast of an album,and not only that he can spook-out into trippy psych realms too!His lyrics are introspective,and intelligent(sometimes playful too).

Loads of fully satisfying riffs and lyrics,plus he can do a 20 minute song,by himself in the studio(his bed-room at this time),and sound like a live band jamming in a Pink Floyd fashion. Incredible stuff!

DO NOT MISS THIS ,or THE INNER MARSHLAND CD!!!!! Classics of the future....NOW!"

"Nicely done reissue of Bevis Frond's 1987 2-lp vinyl release. I've seen this disc before but until recently, never even knew anything about it. After just one listen, I can tell you this is a must-have for true fans of lo-fi neo-psychedelia. Tunes here that did it for me were the fourteen-minute epic "1970 Home Emprovement", "Rat In A Raincoat", the awesome "Purtle Sline", the inspiring "Soot" (great wailing guitar work) and "Alistar Jones" (sort of reminds me of early T. Rex member Steve peregrine Took). Essential."
Pshycodellic music is not dead.

"Bevis Frond's music is a step back into the late 1960's. Nomaatter what CD you purchase, you can not go wrong. Weather it be Inter the Marshland, Tryptich, Live, or any of the many CDs available, you will be very happy. It is not commercial, and is far from main streem. So, if you are a AC/DC fan, or Bon Jovi, or ZZ Top, stay away. But if you like bands like Cherokee Mist, or Oxford Circle, or anything out of the ordanary, this is the band for you."
