Local anaesthetic" was the first release by Nirvana in this form, Campbell-Lyons describing it as the "birth of the real Nirvana". The album appeared on the Vertigo label, complete with swirl label and inner sleeve. There is certainly a sea change in the style of music here. Gone are the pysch pop sounds of songs such as "Tiny goddess" and "Pentecost hotel", to be replaced by a far more progressive style. The album consists of just two tracks, one on each side

NIRVANA – Local Anaesthetic Album – Remaster + Bonus Tracks Apparently – and I wasn't aware of this – a legendary album from 1970. I knew the cover, but I'd never heard the album – until no. nd what surprised me immediately, knowing my penchant for epic tracks from the seventies, was that this album consisted of two such epics – two side-long tracks, lasting just over 16 and 19 minutes respectively – so, how theheck have I missed this, all these years – and, more the point, have.
When Local Anaesthetic floundered Campbell-Lyons, in a much happier place mentally, went back to his pop roots a year later with the follow up Songs Of Love And Praise. The inside sleeve declared Nirvana has never been a group, band or solo artist: it is simply a centre-point for various musical journeys I embark on. Though sonically nothing like each other, this seems a very similar approach to the one Johnny Lydon took to PIL post 1983. Anyway what we have here is a fine selection of stately early 70s Pop, there’s some Psych influence in there but nothing really out there.

band album released on Island Records. After releasing 1968’s All Of Us and scoring minor success with the phasing-drenched Rainbow Chaser, the duo faced acid rock-craving audiences with their chamber-style The Nirvana Ensemble. When Island rejected their third album, Spyropoulos split, leaving Campbell-Lyons to go it alone on the newly launched Vertigo label. Leaving behind all classical influences and lyrical subtleties, Revox-recorded songs channelled the pain of Campbell-Lyons’ divorce through jazz-inflected rock. Campbell-Lyons describes the album as Nirvana getting weir. ndescribable and schizophrenic. Sounding like a deeply hurt and somewhat sozzled Ray Davies, the convoluted Modus Operandi is indeed a far cry from the band’s ornate delicacy as he forces himself down avenues of pain and bitter reflection against music that often mirrors his trauma.
