Nick has released 22 albums as The Bevis Frond since 1986, alternating jangle-pop with psychedelia and power-guitar rock… pretty much anything '60s-flavored.
We discuss "Longships" from Example 22 (2015), "Opthalmic Microdots" from White Numbers (2013), and "Coming Round" from London Stone (1992). We conclude by listening to "Portobello Man" from Valedictory Songs (2000). Intro: “He’d Be a Diamond” from New River Head (1991). Hear more at bevisfrond.bandcamp.com.
"Johnny Kwango" is one of Nick's catchiest songs, to my ear. To hear Nick's initial solo work as The Bevis Frond, check out this especially popular (and lengthy!) tune "High in a Flat." Another good early one is "Splendid Isolation."
