The name ZEEKtheFREAK is taken from a SNAP-ON Brothers classic song of the same name. The musical genre has a shock rock philosophy with a slice of punk and metal, with humour, with theatrical tendencies.
With many costumes changes, the Band hopes to bring some visual effects to the lyrics and the theme of the songs
The music/ show is heavily influenced by bands such as Alice Cooper, Frank Zappa, the Tubes and many more styles of music
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
2018, saw the reformation of the project, but as a band. Zeek will be accompanied by the Rebel Jesus and Count Frostbyte.
