London band Great Ytene are off on tour next month in support of their just-released debut album, ‘Locus’. To celebrate, they’ve put together a playlist of their fave tracks from Freaks and Geeks. Because why not, eh?
The band explain: “Freaks and Geeks is in another world when it comes to music that accompanied a show! Every track throughout the series is huge, I think they splashed most the budget for the show on it.
“Without the music the show wouldn’t have been and great as it was, from Janis Joplin making you weep to becoming a ‘punker’ with X.”
They also wanted to include Sarah Hagan and Jason Segel’s rendition of The Byrds and The Doobie Brothers’ ‘Jesus Is Just Alright’, and Jason Segel’s ‘Lady L’, but for some reason they’re not on Spotify. So you’ll have to enjoy those below.
Great Ytene’s upcoming tour will visit:
13 The Hope and Ruin, Brighton
14 The Crofters Rights, Bristol
15 The Cost Vaults, Coventry
19 The Flying Duck, Glasgow
20 The Lending Room, Leeds
21 The Golden Lion, Todmorden
22 The Soup Kitchen, Manchester
