Members of New Order, Stone Roses and The Smiths search for vocalist
Freebass – a supergroup consisting of New Order’s Peter Hook, The Smiths‘ Andy Rourke and
The Stone Roses Mani – are on the lookout for a singer.
The band are looking to complete their line-up with a fresh face.
“We want someone young with something to say. Someone new,” Peter Hook told filer-mag.com.
“I think the problem is that the three of us have such a pedigree of vocalist, that if we come out with someone that’s not good we’ll obviously be slated! You’ve got Ian Brown, bloody Bobby Gillespie, Ian Curtis, Bernard (Sumner) and Morrissey. Those are big shoes to fill, especially collectively,” he said.
Hooky described Freebass’ sound as “(sounding)like New Order with a bit of the Stone Roses and a bit of Smiths and some Northern Soul.”
The star went on say the songs the supergroup have been working on contained all three bassists playing together.
“Mani does the low part, Andy Rourke in the middle and I do the high bit. But it works out quite well,” he said.
