Freakapuss

New 21st Century Dimension

M’lady’s Records / Radical Elite Records MLADYS 20 1/2 / RE0014

The Freakapuss album New 21st Century Dimension, takes it’s influences mainly from pre Beatles, rock n roll, rhythm and blues, jazz, beat and pop, mixing up a kind of new beatnik punk style never heard before. Jam packed with hard driving minimalist rock n roll, psychedelic, dreamy and surreal atmosphere and explosive lyrics that Freakapuss say are the best and unequalled, world wide, in today’s mainstream music industry. New 21st Century Dimension features special guest appearances by JB Townsend from Crystal Stilts, Marion Herbain from Veronica Falls, Jay Hough from Sapphire Mansions, Anastasia Crisis and Lolita Zwicky. New 21st Century Dimension was mastered by Warren Defever. Freakapuss, was formed by Tronics man Zarjaz, who has been described as ‘the essence of rock n roll’, ‘the biggest underground star in the UK’ and ‘sits on the music scene like a time bomb waiting to go off’. In 2013, Uncut magazine said that ‘it has taken the best part of 30 years for the pop world to catch up to Zarjaz’. As a two piece combo, together with Steve Dore providing the driving, hard line backbone and rhythm section, Freakapuss are setting a high bench mark in the new 21st Century of rock n roll. New 21st Century Dimension appears on this label collaboration with Brett Lyman’s M’lady’s Records and the label of Chain & the Gang’s front man Ian F. Svenonius, Radical Elite Records.

Disturbance spreading on the ground They’re filling up the compound It’s gonna mess with your sound Like a main gun tank round So you de ice Re splice Carrying a suitcase nuclear device With your Life stimulator In a lift off On the equator Twist your fate Ride a tectonic plate With gamma hydroxybutyrate Do you see birds in your dreams? Eat chocolate coated ice cream? Praying to Cao Dai Watching great explosions of our times? Behind a bullet proof booth Plugged into blue tooth It’s time to Jam So get with the programme Mars age baby It ain’t the stone age momma It’s gonna put you on the front page Dancing on the sound stage baby It’s gonna be a Mars age For ever It’s gonna be a Mars age Right now It’s gonna be a Mars age Freakapuss, New 21st Century Dimension, Extra 8.


For everyone Everybody join in Everybody freak out It’s what it’s all about Oh yeah Wipeout ace Leader of the space race Encased in lace Grant me your grace Mace my face And exit to chase And leave residual trace All over the place Like ectoplex Born positive tox Mainframe 21st Century fox With a black mass Toxic glass Draw up a cordon Do not pass Urban rescue Phantom class In Times Square watching flashing glass Bending fenders Eliminating contenders No survivors and half hit wonders Bust up binary And mangled up machinery You’ll be hanging in the air Taking in the scenery Masters of the art Of social deception Freakapuss, New 21st Century Dimension, Extra 9.

The Labels Radical Elite Records

Radical Elite is a new Washington DC based label started by Chain & The Gang frontman Ian F. Svenonius. “Ian F. Svenonius is one of the coolest people around. I think the Chain & The Gang release Devitalize, is one of the most important cult records so far this Century. Being associated with Radical Elite, as well as M’lady’s at the same time is a gift from the Gods.” Zarjaz 2015
