More than 3 years since their breakthrough album “Cycle”, Bed Rugs are finally back with a colossal new double album called “Hard Fun Grand Design”.
Bed Rugs meanwhile transformed from a 5 man band to a hardcore 3 piece band! The Founding Fathers of Bed Rugs as a core! Noah, Stijn & Yannick said goodbye to Arne/bass and Yorgos/keys and continued as a Holy Threesome Fuck! In the spring of 2017, they took a plane to Athens-Georgia/USA and crashed in the studio of Derek Almstead/The Elephant 6 where they stayed for 5 weeks to work on new material! The Elephant 6 was a collective close to grand psychedelic bands like The Olivia Tremor Control & Neutral Mik Hotel! Together with Derek Almstead they recorded a Collosus new Double Album called “Hard Fun Grand Design”! They returned to Antwerp with a 26 song Fat Vinyl Master with no leftovers but all Grand Songs! Unlike their previous albums, this album is no psychrock or indierock album, but a soft pschydelic trip through the world and mind of Bed Rugs! No singles, no catchy riffs but a Grand Trip where Bed Rugs show that they are also very skilled writing grand songs! This is probably the best shit Bed Rugs has ever produced, a double album u would expect from international stars like Devendra Banhart or Tame Ipala, but they never took it this far! This is without any doubt the Best Double Album of 2018 and probably the Best Album ever released on WasteMyRecords! Please listen with care to the 26 Grand and Fun songs of HARD FUN GRAND DESIGN !
