about

After the demise of the Von Trap family, Room 13 rose like a phoenix from the ashes in the early 1980s. Sadly, it was a bit of a short-lived phoenix, as they only existed for a brief period before Nick's motorbike accident put an end to the band. Musically you could call them post-punk garage psychedelia if you really wanted an ill-fitting pigeonhole to squeeze them into - better to listen and decide for yourself. They released one incredibly rare 12" Single - Need Some Dub / Murder Mystery in 1982. This compilation comprises all of the studio cuts they recorded during that brief period and includes an LBC interview and their appearance on Jellybone Jury. One live recording exists which you can also find on this Bevis Frond site. The phoenix was to rise again in 1986 as the Bevis Frond, feeling altogether healthier.

about

Bevis Frond Walthamstow

The Bevis Frond, the band name used by Nick Saloman for his projects, released Miasma in 1986 to great acclaim from fans of psychedelic rock. A steady stream of LPs since then showcase Nick's strengths of strong songwriting, finely crafted lyrics, and a musical mixture from wig-out guitar jams to sensitive folky numbers. New album The Leaving Of London is a triumphant return after a 7 year hiatus. ... more
