New River Head was the 7th release by The Bevis Frond. It is regarded as the best album to buy to get into their sprawling back catalogue as it juxtaposes melodic genius on songs such as He’d Be A Diamond with psych-rock wig outs on the 17-minute Miskatonic Variations II. Both are typical examples of the Bevis Frond sound.

This 1991 set is certainly one of Bevis Frond's earliest masterpieces. Mixing his love and mastery of psychedelic electricity and melodic folk rock, with a brilliantly original song-writing vision and heartfelt enthusiasm. Nick Saloman is an emotionally generous songwriter; he shares his dreams and inventions with a warmth that feels like an old friend. An essential addition to your Frondian collection. Thank you very much Nick Saloman and The Bevis Frond for all of your excellent and fun music
