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 & 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. There is an intriguing mixture of music, all fed through the Bevis Frond's psychedelic mincer. We have heavy guitars, gentle acoustic balladry, short and sharp punk, some great psych/pop, and even a smattering of prog organ.
