"Suppose you are the drummer in Nebula and have musical ideas that do not fit the band's style. You could leave it be, or you could start a band of your own. Ruben Romano chose the second option and in 2006 he left Nebula in order to pursue his own ideas with a couple of friends. These friends were not just anybody: John McBain (Monster Magnet), Scott Reeder (Kyuss), Isaiah Mitchell (Earthless), Lorenzo Woodrose (Baby Woodrose), Jack Endino (Skin Yard), John Cobbett (Ludicra), Bernie Worrell (Funkadelic) and Jason Corbin (Bartenders Bible) participated in the eponymous album by The Freeks. Judging from the names it should be a genuine Stoner-supergroup, but do not expect a Desert Sessions part 11. The Freeks is an entirely different cup of tea, or to be precise, a different slice of cheese because in their bio the members of the band (Romano on most instruments, McBain as producer, Reeder as engineer and the others as session musicians on one or more tracks) are all referred to as types of cheese. Freaky.
If you really want a label attached to it, my first point of reference would be 1980s psychedelic pop. Romano oddly mentions a slew of German krautrock bands such as Birth Control, Amon Düül II, Can, Xhol Caravan and Tangerine Dream as inspiration."
