Freak Power was originally founded in 1993 by Ashley Slater (legendary singer and trombonist with the anarchic British jazz big band Loose Tubes, the funk band Microgroove and many others) and Norman Cook (later to become known as Fatboy Slim). The Freak Power music was a heady mix of acid jazz with funk and soul, as well as trip-hop.
In 2008 Freak Power reformed to perform a series of select gigs with front-man Ashley Slater and his unique vocals and trombone skills, and original band members, Jim Carmichael, Jesse Graham (aka "The Bass Cadet") and Eddie Stevens.

Freak Power pepper their set with their classic hits including from the 1994 album Drive Thru Booty “Freedom Child”, “Rush” and the European & global smash hit "Turn On, Tune In, Cop Out".

Other great tracks from the release More of Everything For Everybody include “New Direction” and “Song #6”, which featured in the 2004 movie Code 46.
