  • Yong old Moorcock reader

    Hello, I've been a fan of Mike Moorcock's work since the seventies - much at the same time that I discovered the freak brothers - I have not read much of late, but hope to renew my aquaintance! Glad to have found this place!

        Those Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers by RIP OFF PRESS are still reprinted randomly. Ive got some old and new issues that Ive collected over the years. I used to get a kick out of The Adventures Of Fat Freddy's Cat. FF's cat was always at war over leftover scraps of food with the army of cockroaches that lived in their apartment. The head cockroach was a caricature of general MacArthur, corn cob pipe and all. I still read them..

          "And that, to cut a long story short, is how Fat Freddy found his way home without a flash-light"

          The vanished memories of youth, I had forgotten those, have not read them in decades...

                  The good old Freak Brothers, I remember them well. Country Cowfreak actually reminded me of a farmer I used to work for. I might have to see if my younger brother still has my collection, I wouldn't mind taking a look again.

                    All this talk of the Freaks means I may just have to get mine out and read them again. I toyed with the idea of a Fat Freddy avatar for a while -

                    Anyone want it?

                      Fat Freddy? I'll stick with my av Gov. Thanks just the same.
                      I used to really get a kick out of The Adventures Of Fat Freddies Cat. Everytime that Freddy, Phineas and Franklin went off on a 3 day "run" it seemed like the army of cockroaches that lived in the building tried to take over on Fat Freddies Cat. Hilarious stuff, and still reprinted the odd time by Ripoff Press. I still have a small collection of some of the old issues.

                        I've lost count of how many times I've read them. I like the 'Back to Grass Roots' story where F. Frederick Skitty wanders about in the woods. Among various escapades he scarpers up a tree saying you would, too, if you'd smelled what he did, later gets courted by a lady cougar and puts another cat straight on where fish come from (tins not water!).

                        'Let's all get drunk and go na-a-aked,
                        and fall in a great big pile.'*

                        Just before I posted this I visited the FFFB site and discovered they are apparently making a film about this very story!
                        http://www.grassrootsthemovie.com/movie.htm
                        And Gilbert Shelton is involved!

                          Yes, the film seems to have been on its way for some time. I think they are having problems raising the cash. You will notice on that site links for wouldbe investors.
