The Bevis Frond is an English rock band formed in 1986 in Walthamstow, London. The band is fronted by Nick Saloman and has recorded many singles and albums on various independent labels. Saloman was originally in a band known as the Bevis Frond Museum in the late 1960s, and in the 1970s, whilst at college, he played guitar with a duo called Oddsocks. They released one album, Men of the Moment.

The Bevis Frond emerged fully-formed from the skull of British rock. A cult favourite Pitchfork. Released earlier this year for Record Store Day 2017 on 12 white vinyl, ‘Triptych’ was initially released alongside ‘Bevis Through The Looking Glass’ and ‘The Auntie Winnie Album’ as part of the 30th Anniversary. The heavy third offering from Nick Saloman bursts with 60s-psych and includes epic track "Tangerine Infringement Beak" clocking in at nearly 20 minutes, ‘Into The Cryptic Mist’ and ‘Lights Are Changing’ a song that went on to be covered by Mary Lou Lord. Over the years, the Frond has grown from a one-man band recording in a bedroom to a trio that works in an actual studio; but listening to the first few records- now back in print thanks to Rubric Records- it's surprising to hear how little the man has changed.

The second side, meanwhile, contains one of his monsters - "Tangerine Infringement Beak," a nearly 20-minute-long number. A multi-part song that covers everything from expected full Frond fun to way cool keyboard solos over minimal grooves and back to chiming bells along with the feedback and more, it's a worthy treat. There's one delightful diversion early on - "Debbie's New Song for Drums," which consists of the young person mentioned in the title having a quick little bash on things.
