From the minds behind Piccadilly Sunshine, Mixed Up Minds, Upside Down, Electric Sound Show, Electric Asylum and Cornflake Zoo, Beatfreak! is the pre-cursory journey through the glorious cultural dustbin where beat up pop meets paisley R&B. Prestigious guests include pre-progressive rockers audience in Lloyd Alexander Real Estate, a balladeer’s stab at the Pretty Things, a slab of Marjorine and some RAF engineers lost in Singapore, all meeting up for an intoxicating marriage of fuzz and flute and delivered with disgraceful adolescent abandon. Beware, it is not pretty. Beatfreak! Vol.2, a sonic showdown of rare and obscure British beat pop pleasures delivered with a whiff of R&B, is presented here for the first time on vinyl. Also features: The Moquettes, The All, Phase 4, The Pentad, Bad Boys, Billy J. Kramer and The Dakotas, Force Five, Alex Harvey, Dick Jordan, The Trekkas, Profile, Red Squares, The Cherokees, The Frame, Split Image and New Breed. Comes on 180 gram, nectarine-orange vinyl; Includes a two-page color insert with comprehensive liner notes and rare photographs; Edition of 1000 (hand-numbered).
