Hooky Threatens Us with Freebass, Again 
Peter Hook insists to Billboard that the as-yet-untitled Freebass album "is going to be out next March or I am going to fucking top myself." (Hmm, there goes that last chance at a New Order reunion...)

He continues: "I said to Mani and Andy: 'It's coming out and I don't care how rough it is. Fuck it...'." So, what's been the delay? Hooky cites his "DJ-ing commitments". (Well, there you go...one must have priorities.)

A reminder that Freebass is comprised of Hook, Mani from the Stone Roses and Andy Rourke of The Smiths; with vocals [perhaps] from Liam Gallagher (Oasis), Ian Brown (The Stone Roses), Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream) and Pete Wylie (various Wah[s]). (Hooky has suggested all of them, but has confirmed only Burgess & Wylie, with strong hints about Brown.)

Additional Freebass info can be found in this recent Hooky Q&A.
