“Superseeder marks a return to the sort of extended raga-like acid rock workout that typified early Bevis Frond releases.. the whole album is excellent.” Allmusic

Released on Nick Saloman’s label Woronzow in 1995, The Bevis Frond’s ‘Superseeder’ arrived after ‘Sprawl’.

At this point, Nick began releasing albums annually compared with his earlier recordings that would see multiple releases per year. Soaring and melodic rock workouts prevail with a notably strong rhythm section making this record another favourite.

Eastern tinged opener ‘Superseded’, ‘I Can’t Cry’ and 17-minute ‘House Of Mountains’ are exemplary workouts whilst the garage-punk of ‘Dolly Bug’ takes a different tone as do ‘Golden Walks Of London’ and ‘Queen Of May’ which have more traditional British influences.

Playing many instruments on the record, Nick continues here to work with his live band with Andy Ward on the drums, Adrian Shaw on bass and guest second guitarist Bari Watts returns (tracks 6 & 12). ‘Superseeder’ is reissued on double LP, single CD and download, it’s released alongside ‘Sprawl’ and ‘It Just Is’ on Fire Records ahead of their 30th anniversary year in 2017.
