Zeek given the all-clear

(June 2020)


After many months of vocal/throat problems a visit to the Nose and Throat department of the M.C.A. (Medical Center Alkmaar) has given Zeek the all-clear sign. there are no problems and his vocal chords are fine and healthy.

Great news...

This is great news for Zeek and not so good news for the people who had hoped he would have to be quiet for a while...au contraire, things are only beginning and they are gonna get wilder.

He can begin work on the D.I.D. album and the album of ZEEK & GIZ.

Drowning track re-released as single

(March 2020)


The Drowning in the demon drink track from the Idiots Seeking Sanctuary at the Armageddon album has been re-released but now officially as a single and will be available from Saturday the 21st of March 2020.

The track originally recorded in 2004 has been re-released as a farewell to the era of ZEEKtheFREAK wanted to bring to a close after the Spaced out on Planet Bizarre album.

Zeek is planning going back to the roots of the project and the next album will be a concept album and is uncertain if this will be performed Live on stage. This will be the first album he will collaborate with other musicians writing the music, especially with Stephan 'Stuffie' Stoop, who produced and arranged the Rain track from the last album.

Drowning in the demon drink is a philosophical track about Zeek's time on the thin line between being a sociable drinker and an alcoholic.

Zeek's novel delayed release

(March 2020)


Due to a rewrite for a better flow in the story, Zeek has decided to delay the release of the book until further notice.

The book was due to be released sometime this year, but that plan now looks highly unlikely

Zeek hopes in the meantime to work on a new FOOLS FUNNYBONE, another project which has been on hold for far too long. He hopes also to have the first 2 editions online again, very soon

He is hoping to recruit other writers, with the same sense of humour so that the tabloid can appear more often.

We will keep in you touch with news updates concerning both projects

Confessions of a music Freak

The words and thoughts of Zeek Catweazle

To laugh or not to laugh

January 10th 2020


When we, as civilised human beings, characterize our humour, it is that we laugh at things WE feel are funny. Our humour is defined by how we see it, but only through our own eyes, not through the eyes of another. It’s all to do with the Theory of relativity, I think they would call it... read further

Makes me wonder

I have to be sincerely honest, this is something that I most definitely think about, I would even say nearly daily. Am I even on the right road?...read further

The new album has a title: D.I.D.

(December 2019)


The new ZEEKtheFREAK album has a name. It is being called D.I.D. (Dissociative identity disorder). This is a perfect name, we feel, according to the cover. A massive thank you to everyone who had entered the competition.


The recording of the album should begin early 2020.


This album will hopefully return ZEEKtheFREAK 's musical venture back to producing original and alternative music.

Zeek feel's his music was turning a bit mainstream and that was not what the project was all about
