With influences ranging from Hendrix to Cream and The Byrds to The Wipers, The Bevis Frond has been making some of the most astoundingly incendiary psychedelic songs of our time. The legendary initial albums were recorded by the band's guiding force, Nick Saloman, in a bedroom studio in London during the last years of the 1980s, and with the pandemic-induced lockdown in full force during the first years of the 2020s, Nick returned to playing all the instruments for this release on Hypnotic Bridge. Written during the lengthy Covid lockdown, 'Typical Freakout' and 'You Best Beware' were recorded at Graffite Studio in Bexhill-on-Sea on the southern coast of Britain, not far from Nick's home in Hastings. Using his typical set-up, multi-instrumentalist Nick Saloman employed a 1960s Vox Continental keyboard, 1970s Burns Flyte guitar, 1990s Epiphone bass (which somewhat resembles a Hofner Violin), and a house kit for the drums. All sounds emanated from a 1970s Carlsboro Stingray amp.
