The Bevis Frond

What Did For The Dinosaurs

Out of Stock

This title was released on 24th October 2020 as part of Record Store Day 2020.

Back in the day, Record Collector enthused and mentioned Burnt Weenie Sandwich era Zappa”, “The Pretty Things” and “Byrds with attitude”. The set, some 70 minutes-plus closes with a 14-minute prog rock corker and inbetween; there’s the usual Frondisms – Beatles-esque couplets, minor chord progressions, Bond-esque echo, folk rock masterclasses, baroque pop and all the well-thumbed pages of the psych pop song book.

Originally released in 2002, two years after Valedictory Songs, The Bevis Frond returned with a more progressive sound with complex structures and instrumentation. Bursting with their trademark guitar licks, impeccable songwriting and a more upbeat sound. Available on Double Vinyl for the first time ever, lovingly packaged in a gatefold sleeve for Record Store Day
