  • I into Modern Jazz at the mo - Jimmy McGriff is the thing.  I go through fads of listening to most things, but okay - this is slightly unrelated, but I really need to know.  What in God's name is Freakbeat?  Being an old fart and out of touch.  How does it fit into the mod scene?  What's it's origin?

    I'm hoping I know it as something else.  You know the way we know proper R&B and you know how these young whipper snappers call funky rap rubbish, all twerking and tacky gold hot pants, as R&B. LOL.

    Freakbeat - wot is it?

    • I´d say it´s the short period when when bands played no longer R&B but before it was proper Psychedelia... The Creation, The Eyes, Fleur de Lys, early Move, Johns Children etc. Stuff like that released on the Rubble compilations in the ´80s...

    • Freakbeat is Pop Art-Rock, isn't it?. I like the bands you have enumerated and I don't mind if they were mods or not. Can we consider The Who was a freakbeat band?. 

      In Spain this is an eternal discussion in the mod scene.

    • No. The Who are a straight ahead Rock band.
  • Some may know this Gentleman by a different name these days?

    • Yeah, FAN-TAS-TIC, SR! Great memories associated with that one! Saw them at the 100 Club in 1988 or-89 and bought the album afterwards (it had just been released). I dug it out last year after seeing James Hunter opening for Sharon Jones in Spring. And that, too, was a memorable evening!

    • Lovely to hear that you had a good time Kai. I'm sure the band will be back in Europe soon, February in fact !

    • Nothing beats a good time, SR! :-)

  • Not mod, but still a classic IMO

    • I've never listened to this record. Do you suggest it?, I only Know 60's Kinks.
