The Bevis Frond 'Sprawl'

£25.99

Double LP, gatefold sleeve, printed inners, art insert, download postcard. 2CD Digisleeve + booklet, disc 2 features bonus tracks.

1994’s ‘Sprawl’, originally released on Woronzow, features Nick with Jimmy Hastings (flute), Tony Aldridge (violin) and Andy Ward on drums. Vocals here were provided by Ade Shaw, Dean Carter and Mick Donovan along with Current 93’s David Tibet guesting with spoken word on the spiritual ‘Right On (hippy dream)’. Hypnotic 12 minute psych piece ‘Awake’ is interspersed with instrumentals and the grungy guitars of ‘The Puller’ are offset by Aldridge’s strings.

The tenth studio album release in less than a decade since and ‘Sprawl’ - once again - demonstrates Nick’s immeasurable song writing power.

The double CD features bonus material including ‘Sister John’ (1997) previously released on split single with Sandoz Lime on Distortion Records, ‘Dry Rain’ (1996) from the Terrascope Benefit album ‘Succour’, ‘The Illegall Raffling Of The Equator’ from limited edition release ‘The Long Stuff’ for The Bevis Frond community webpage (2003), tracks from cassette only release ‘Vaultscan Vol 1’ (1997) and more.
