'We're Your Friends, Man'   

-  Label: 'Fire Records'
-  Genre: 'Rock' -  Release Date: '7th December 2018'

Our Rating:
Who could possibly resist an album that promises retro-orientated classic rock pleasures of both "Hendrixonian guitar" and a "Love-like strum"?

Nick Saloman is a man who invites and fully justifies hyperbolic descriptions of his ever expanding opus.

Operating under The Bevis Frond moniker, this is his 91st album (more or less) which serves up a whopping 20 tracks and 85 minutes to feast upon.   

To get a full measure of the man and his psyched-out soundscape, you'd do well to begin with the closing 13 minute ‘You're On Your Own, a tight yet deliciously sprawling track that finds our guitar hero "fuming between the Westway.... between two galaxies".

In the unlikely event that one or all of the songs might be considered for some enlightened DJ's playlist most of the other tunes are shorter and would, in a parallel utopian universe, be deemed radio-friendly.

As it is, this is another album destined to fly below the radar of mainstream audiences leaving those in the know to sing the praises of this unjustly underrated artist.
