A featured album from The Seeds and Live Freaks from Can

2 hours
First broadcast:
Sunday 18 November 2012

Stuart Maconie spices up Sunday evenings with a dose of freaky and experimental sounds crossing continents and genres.

This week there's new freakiness from Baltimore's Animal Collective and three Trapped Tigers, alongside classic avant garde sounds from Yoko Ono.

Can provide the Live Freaks with a session track recorded for John Peel in 1975 and Stuart's featured album is a 1966 'nuggets' classic from The Seeds.
