Debut EP from Freebass features 3 U.K. bass guitar legends

FREEBASS – Two Worlds Collide – EP

Featuring THREE of Manchester’s bass guitar legends; Peter Hook (Joy Division / New Order), Andy Rourke (The Smiths) & Gary “Mani” Mounfield (The Stone Roses / Primal Scream), FreeBass has had a long gestation process. Pressed to find the perfect lead singer, they asked their famous friends to contribute with Tim Burgess (Charlatans UK), Pete Wylie (The Mighty Wah!) & Howard Marks (Mr Nice) responding to the call. Burgess’ track, “You Don’t Know This About Me” is a melodically epic tune with a bass line recalling New Order’s single “Ceremony” surrounding Tim’s voice. On “The Milky Way Is Our Playground,” Wylie takes vocal duties on an anthemic journey into euphoric space rock, reflecting on the universe with his star-struck cerebral lyrics. Howard Marks AKA raconteur & beatnik Mr Nice, delivers a sterling monologue on “Dark Starr,” a grungy piece of rock & roll mischief. Finally “Live Tomorrow You Go Down,” finds Hooky growling his way through a pulsating dance track whose raved-up bass line, crunching beats & Giorgio Moroder-esque electro flourishes closes the EP with a punkish techno vibe.
