The Bevis Frond were an indie band in the classic mould, releasing their earnest, slightly scrappy rock action on an array of small labels. The time has come for some reissues: here we have 1990’s Any Gas Faster, a particularly psych-tinged record, and the first Bevis Frond album to be recorded in a proper studio. CD / double LP on the Fire label, bolstered by some bonus live tracks.

The songs on this album are all heady acid-rock fun. An interlocking maze of melody and reflective themes are coloured with head-blasting guitar lead tone, power trio rhythm section dynamics, and analogue old-school effects we all used to know and love (from what I presume to be his large vintage collection). Nick even plays old organs, often Vox, to help create that old-school space rock psychedelic feel. When you realise all of the parts he plays you will be amazed - some albums and some songs on here he does everything).
