Acid - psyche legends Krankschaft have issued a free download Christmas single to bring a little 'Spirit of The Age' to the festive season.
The band, who formed as backing band for the late great Robert Calvert (former Hawkwind vocalist) in the early 1980's around the core of former Inner City Unit members Steve Pond and Dead Fred have recently expanded their line up with the addition of drummer Darren Butler and bass player Scott Myers, and the new single is the first recording to feature the new line up.
The track, entitled Everybody's Little Song Of Christmas, is a catchy little ditty in the traditional ICU / Krankshaft mode and can be download free from the bands website at http://www.doremi.co.uk/krankschaft/
