After taking a seven-year break from releasing his own records, during which he stayed busy working with the Psychic Circle label on their noble quest to reissue every garage and psych song that hasn't been already, Nick Saloman resurrected his Bevis Frond on the 2011 LP Leaving of London. The album was his usual mix of Hendrix-meets-Mascis guitar prowess, Byrds-ian folk-rock, and raw Wipers-like recording technique, and for that it was as worthy as anything Bevis Frond had issued up to that point. That's to say very worthy, as the man's lengthy career has been one long string of excellent albums.
Some musical talents burn brightly but briefly while others simmer for many years. Meanwhile, others still maintain a persistently frenzied level of intensity that results in vast quantities of records being recorded over a prolonged spell of years – to the point that serious fans of these artists can amass enormous record collections without having to buy music by any other bands. Sun Ra, Frank Zappa and James Brown can all be categorised firmly in this group.
