Bevis & Twink - Magic Eye (1990)



Oto bardzo dziwny muzyczny projekt, którego twórcami są weteran brytyjskiej sceny psychedelicznej, perkusista grup The Pretty Things, Tomorrow oraz The Pink Faires, ale też nagrywający solowe albumy - John Adler znany jako Twink - oraz niezwykle zasłużony animator współczesnej psychedelii z Wysp, wokalista i gitarzysta grupy The Bevis Frond - Nick Saloman. Bardzo miła ciekawostka.

One of the freakiest and most difficult to find Bevis Frond albums, this is a limited-edition collaboration with legendary British psychedelia figure Twink (aka, John Alder, ex-Tomorrow, Pretty Things, Pink Fairies, etc.), a drummer whose previous collaborators ranged from Syd Barrett to Hawkwind. Clearly he was a like-minded soul, and unlike most other Bevis Frond "collaborations," which end up being completely dominated by Nick Saloman's singular vision, Magic Eye is definitely the work of both men. Opening with a completely over-the-top spoken introduction from Twink, the album is possibly the most purely psychedelic album Saloman has ever been involved with. The nine lengthy songs bristle with backwards effects, trippy guitar and keyboard textures, and the sort of lyrics one would expect to find in such settings. ("Flying Igloos," anyone?) Honestly, the whole thing sounds like it could have been recorded in 1969. A good-humored but not silly album, this is a most enjoyable set well worth tracking down.

Found somewhere in the web.
