Ok Goner folks. In your own words how would you describe the term "freakbeat".

Baseball bat to a hippie's head?

Well it's a cool publication that has a hunk on practically every page, and also relevent social commentary about makeup and junk that teenyboppers like you and I can relate to. It always stimulates good lunch table discussions.

european 60s garage is how i think of it. should have a real euro / uk feel to it.

i think of the yardbirds "i'm not talking" as a prime example.

and these:







and everything on the transworld punk comps.

I suspect Freakbeat is a hard one for Americans to understand because so much music from the era gets lumped in with Merseybeat/British Invasion. I think of it as later 1960's UK Garage/Psych, but that still leaves out a lot. Thanks for the Transworld comps tip.

Harder garage with psychedelic edge and fuzz guitar breaks. Pop music en route to hard rock.

yeah, i dog your guyses definitions. add some sitar to the mix!

the only true freakbeat comp i've ever had is "english freakbeat vol. 1", so that's kinda what i base my definition on. you know who has some seriously bad ass 45s? tony "the tiger" sanchez from san diego. i heard him dj in NYC once about 8 years ago and i heard some sounds that i haven't heard since. seriously wicked shit and everything sounded like this: WHIP! CRACK! WHIP! CRACK! BRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWRRRRRR...

nuts.

Did Tony the Tiger/Tyger (?) put out some comp LPs? I haven't seen 'em in a while, but my local record store had some sitting in the V/A bin for a while. Something like "Frosted Flakes" and other cereal puns or something.
