Freaks of Nature

There was a unitary issued in Island in the U.K. in past due 1966 credited towards the Freaks of Character, “People Let’s PANIC”/”The Darkness Chasers,” which will probably continue steadily to mistake enthusiasts and discographers for eternity. For the Freaks of Character were in fact the Belfast Gypsies, a spinoff band of Them (using their personal complicated, confusing background). Both from the songs were released on the U.S. solitary crediting the Belfast Gypsies, in addition to a little down the road the Belfast Gypsies’ lone LP, Them Belfast Gypsies. Most likely someone not really in the music group (which split up in past due 1966 and didn’t can be found by enough time the one was released) felt which the one would get even more interest if the music group name was transformed to something freakier and even more psychedelic. Neither the Belfast Gypsies nor manufacturer Kim Fowley acquired any prior understanding of the name transformation, and regarding to Fowley, simply 100 copies from the U.K. one bearing the Freaks of Character name had been pressed. The dilemma doesn’t end there. To begin with, the B-side, “The Darkness Chasers,” was really just a Belfast Gypsies monitor that had recently been released as the B-side of their initial one under a different name, “Secret Law enforcement.” Second, the edition of “People Let’s PANIC” over the Freaks of Character one wasn’t a similar as the greater familiar edition that arrived over the Belfast Gypsies LP. The Freaks of Character edition had odd, overdubbed, and honestly incongruous psychedelic/digital effects. For a long period it was very much rarer compared to the un-overdubbed Belfast Gypsies edition from the song, however the psychedelicized overdubbed Freaks of Character edition did turn out over the 2003 compilation Difficult But Accurate: The Kim Fowley Tale. For the music themselves, “People Let’s PANIC” was a great Bo Diddley-styled cut of middle-’60s United kingdom R&B-rock, though with some psychedelic sloganeering in the lyrics. “The Darkness Chasers,” aka “Top secret Police,” is at a similar mildew, though with a far more paranoid, slightly even more psychedelic bent. Both monitors are great, but they’re even more properly noticed and appreciated within the Belfast Gypsies’ record than over the misleading Freaks of Character one.
