freak folk[edit]

What are some characteristics of freak folk? The article lists artists associated with the genre, but that doesn't give a specific idea of what is considered "freak folk." Blackmorningsun 18:51, 4 May 2007 (UTC)


Bands from the 1960s like the Holy Modal Rounders and Pearls Before Swine were using the term freak folk in their heyday --scruss (talk) 04:28, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

the godz and the fugs also. it's not new. i was really surprised reading this article that it's considered a new coinage.


Surely Freak Folk is the same genre as Nu-Folk. Perhaps these articles should be merged.

- I think this is completely wrong. am planning on contributing to re-write the categories as they are a mess. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:47, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

- Please do: references to nu-folk redirect here. They refer todifferent bands, different periods. Horrid. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:13, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

This article is a mess[edit]

will anyone, with some relative knowledge, please, make some effort? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:19, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Article has bad genre references[edit]

Half-hearted attempt at Coining a new genre doesn't make it so. Will someone please clean this up! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:39, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
