Product Description

Product Description

The Bevis Frond's 21st album. 'White Numbers' is the logical successor to 2011's 'The Leaving Of London', not simply in that it's the next album, but because it follows on in the style of great songs played well in an esoteric, but totally musical panoply of styles. If there was one complaint about the last record, it was that there were not enough of the Frond's signature guitar wig-outs. Woronzow is therefore happy to inform one and all that this aberration has been well and truly rectified with the inclusion of a 42 minute instrumental. Eschewing the 'less is more' theory, 'White Numbers' comes as a double CD and triple vinyl release, containing 24 new titles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem 1 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's not often I have items on pre-order from Amazon, I'm not really an early adopter. Every so often I check to see whether The Bevis Frond have anything new pending and so when White Numbers appeared I put down the cash! I have been listening to the BF since 1990 and have pretty much everything to date. I think fellow fans will highlight the lengthy instrumental and may talk about a return to form as if somehow recent albums have been less good than Auntie Winnie, Triptych, Superseeder, New River Head etc. I've enjoyed each album as it's come along in it's own right. Yes I love some of the early Frond stuff but I don't want 20+ albums of the same thing.

I've listened to this 3 times now and it's a great album and as good as anything to date on these 3 'listens' and I'm pretty sure it will become a Top 5 Bevis Album for me - so it is that good. Plenty of variety, several very high points (Dead Weight, The Hook, The Garden Feature), nothing weak or disappointing.

Of course that 42 minute instrumental cannot be passed by without comment................. loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic 27 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
Purchased this morning - played all day. Great tunes, interesting words & blistering guitar make me a very contented man. The first track alone is worth the price of admission.

If an album of this quality was released by, I dunno, Paul Weller say, it would be praised to high heaven by one and all. As it is, it's down to us to spread the word. C'est la vie vieil homme. Buy it and be happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars astounding! 11 May 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Yes, I`m biased as I`ve been listening to Mr Saloman since the 1980`s, but by crikey this is one superb album.
A fantastic mix of typically Bevis thoughtful songs interspersed with great heavier numbers.
The best IMHO is kept for last with a fantastic jam taking place over two sides of vinyl, akin to Acid Jam of old, but if anything more structured.
There is some brilliant hammond playing by the frond, and Mr Simmons guitar is on fire, assisted by a driving rythm section that Hendrix wouldnt have been ashamed of.

The leaving of London was an excellent album, this I think set the bar even higher.
How can a bunch of blokes well into middle age sound this good?

Easily, they have lost none of the fire in their bellies and their consummate skill as musicians shines through along with Nick`s undiminished songwriting ability.

Destined to be a classic.
The only thing is, this national treasure deserves more recognition.
Spread the word and buy this album.
If we are lucky, the old boy will keep making them!

5.0 out of 5 stars nick`s a genius 5 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
played most of cd so far in car (cd player in house playing up) very enjoyable. Nick saloman and rest of band play their music to suit most styles of rock music with great ease, no duff tracks on either cd, but as other reviewers claim last track on cd2 "homemade traditional electric jam" is 42 mins of class. I wonder in my own opinion is nick saloman the british frank zappa (very experimental-but good with it). Buy with confidence.
