to the lyrics and the theme of the songs

Frank Zappa, the Tubes,
ZEEKtheFREAK's Philosophy & music is meant to open your eyes to
humour in the darker side of the world around you
The Band history
In December of 1996. Zeek Catweazle met a young musician called Bas Lute (the Rebel Jesus). Through the influence of Bas, started writing and recording music again after a 10 year break.
In 1997, Zeek decided he wanted to perform his music live and so a try-out gig was arranged as support to the Great Giz's band the Bouncing Betty's. That was such a success, more gigs were arranged and through the years the name of ZEEKtheFREAK was starting be recognised in the Alkmaar area.
There have been many personal changes in the musicians that have played in theFREAK band, with the REBEL JESUS (Bas Lute) being the only person who has played with ZEEKtheFREAK since day one.
2015, Zeek move away from Holland and now he lives in France, but he continues to record and perform as the ZEEKtheFREAK project
