about

The new Bevis Frond album had become an annual event by 1995, and sure enough, along came Superseeder. The cover, actually made with grains of rice and seeds and old bits of sweetcorn glued to a large piece of card in true kindergarden stylee by the ever-versatile Mr Saloman, was a visual pun on the title which was a pun on the lead track Superseded. Puns within puns! The photo of Nick on the back sleeve stares back at you and says, "Yeah .. so Sue Me!".
Anyway. The music:
Progressing from the style and inspiration of Sprawl, Superseeder has many damn fine tracks to delight in. The massive Hendrixesque Jam that is 'House of Mountains', the lovely pop of 'Dolly Bug', the Eastern-tinged excess of 'Superseded' itself, the poignant and beautiful 'Could You Fly Higher' are the ones that stand out to me, but others have their own favourites, and quite rightly, as there's not a duff track to be found here. (Oh and Bari's back...)

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
