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, and produced by Ian Broudie who had produced their previous album. It is not considered a third album as such, more of a stop-gap between Magic and Medicine and The Invisible Invasion. No singles were taken from Nightfreak and the Sons of Becker. It was limited to 75,000 copies. James Skelly – vocals, guitar, co-producer, arrangements.
Summary: This limited edtion 11-song low-fi mini-album was recorded with producer Ian Broudie over the course of a week. Record Label: Deltasonic. Genre(s): Indie, Rock. On closer inspection, much of Nightfreak and the Sons of Becker appears less like an exercise in deliberately alienating the Coral's audience than a counterpoint to their second album. 35. A flatulent, irrelevant, self-indulgent attempt at recapturing the hotwired spontaneity of their debut through a dirge of sub-par psychedelia and try-hard freakouts.

like it was recorded in a leaky cowshed over seven days in North Wales (which, as. it turns out, it was), and so called thanks to the sprog-creating conquests of teutonic tennis. bore Boris, ‘Nightfreaks And The Sons Of Becker’ (great title!) is a low-key classic from a group grappling with the demands of fame. Bearing more than a passing similarity to the Super Furries tossed off genius. Mwng’ and clearly intended as a means of clearing the band’s creative tubes .

On closer inspection, much of Nightfreak and the Sons of Becker appears less like an exercise in deliberately alienating the Coral's audience than a counterpoint to their second album. Although filled with great songs, Magic and Medicine seems a more polite effort than their eponymous debut, reining in its experimentation and restless urge to juxtapose reggae with ragtime. Here, it sounds like no idea has been rejected as too obtuse for release.
