Produced by Ex – HAWKWIND bassist Adrian Shaw, Free To Be Free have released a self titled single with the following line up –
Jan Marsh – Vocals/Guitars . Neil Archer – Guitars . Robin Green – Synthesisers . Dominic Franklin – Bass . Matthew Franklin – Drums
The idea of writing a song about Populism Today, started about 6 months ago, when writer G W Cheyenne Stardust contacted Adrian Shaw and they agreed to collaborate on a new project – FREE TO BE FREE. Getting the others on board took a while but finally the self titled single, which also includes members of Superheads, is now available.
The original song is over eleven minutes in length, there is also radio edit version of five and a half minutes, both can be found on the band’s Bandcamp page. Here

The song is very Hawkwind/Motorhead sounding, which is not surprising given the links these guys have to the legendary bands. Neil Archer currently plays in the Motorhead tribute band, Ace of Spades and of course producer Adrian was bassist with Hawkwind.
Just a few hours after the single was released, it had been played on the Paul Dupree radio show with CCR 104.4 and the band were invited to play at this years Stonehenge Free Festival, which is on during the solstice later this month. Full details on poster below –
