Nightfreak and the Sons of Becker is a "mini-album" by The Coral. It was recorded over a week and a half in North Wales, at Bryn Derwen Studios, once again produced by Ian Broudie. It is not considered a third album as such, more of a stop-gap between Magic and Medicine and the follow-up, The Invisible Invasion. No singles were taken from Nightfreak and the Sons of Becker. It was limited to 75,000 Copies.
