Freak Kitchen - New Animated Video Released

Freak Kitchen, who released the new album Cooking With Pagans in September, have debuted their new video. The animated video is for the track "Freak Of The Week" and was created by Juanjo Guarnido (of Blacksad and Disney fame). A successful Kickstarter campaign brought in no less than a $140,000 to finance the work of drawing an entire video, frame by frame. So, this should be good right? See it for yourself here below.

Freak Kitchen - Freak Guitar Camp 2005

Scandinavian Week (Swedish spoken): 25th - 30th of July
International Week 1 (English spoken): 1st - 6th of August
International Week 2 (English spoken): 9th - 14th of August

The Freak Guitar Camp has during the past years rapidly grown from a small course for Swedes to what now only can be described as a major international success! Though many details have been improved during the years the basic concept is still the same: What you get are six intensive days of hard work on the guitar in the Swedish woods.

During daytime Mattias IA Eklundh, a k a "The Guru", will lead his God-fearing classes, teaching his various unorthodox techniques as well as picking examples, tapping, harmonics, riffing, finger-picking, poly-rhythms, odd time stuff that will turn your whole concept of music up side down! IA's six-stringed spanking starts right after breakfast and continue until dinner in the late afternoon (plus lunch and a couple of breaks for occasional caffeine and refreshments). There will be tips on how to survive show business, how to get your music out there, what to think of before signing any kind of contract and lots, lots more.

During the evenings Freak Kitchen's extraordinary drummer Björn Fryklund will teach you in everything from the importance of rhythm to how to behave in a band context.

How many times have you put a microphone in front of your groovy sounding amplifier only to get genuinely disappointed by the result? As the sun goes down you will get to learn and try how to record various instruments with maestro Christian Alsing.

As if this wasn't enough, there will also pop up prominent guest guitarists when you least expect itů

The camp is held just outside Gothenburg, Sweden, at a place called Härsjösands Kursgård, located exactly in the middle of nowhere. (Closest airports are Landvetter International Airport and Gothenburg City Airport. You can also get to Gothenburg by ferry, train or bus. We will pick you up. The dare devil might want to drive on his/her own. A detailed map will be provided to prevent you from getting lost in the wilderness).

Among many things, the beautiful surroundings include a nice lake great for various H2O-activities (read: swimming, if you're into that) between the frantic classes, something you might need since at least 10 hours in the class room each day is to expected! After a butt busting day's work there is time for practice and if you're lucky you just might catch a couple of hours of well-deserved sleep!

Freak Kitchen - Hurricane Mini-Disaster In Sweden


Mother Earth is real pissed off, ain't she?

A strong hurricane totally demolished the Freak Mobile last Saturday (pic here: ) and IA is still without electricty, preventing the band from laying down the last couple of takes before the mix of "Organic". Hopefully this won't delay the release too much. The album will be mixed when Eklundh is back from the US (more details below) at the end of this month together with Roberto Laghi.

The new release date of the album will be the 11 of April 2005.

And btw, The Freak Guitar Camp 2005 dates and registration will begin in February. Stay tuned on
