Event details

The legendary, Freak Power, were formed in 1993 by Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim and Ashley Slater.

They were the greasy, illegitimate love child of Beats International and Microgroove.

They recorded their first studio album in 1993, using a combination of tunes, adapted from what was intended to be two albums. The first being the Beats International follow up to 'Excursion on The Version' and the Microgroove follow up to 'The Human Groove'.

Fast forward 20 something years, and Ashley is back with a Freak Power band which is more energetic than the original, and features some of the great original players from the early Freak Power and Microgroove days.

The current line-up is Ashley Slater on vocals and trombone, Dale Davis on bass, Tony Remy on guitar, Carly Bryant on keyboards, Adam Bushell on drums, Kate Cameron and Nicola Bright-Thomas on backing vocals.

Their set is powerful, energetic and lyrically, still annoyingly timely. As well as some of their older tunes, they will also play new material, with their new EP release 'Peace Through War' coming out in March 2018.
