Freedom to Glide is the coming together of musicians Pete Riley and Andy Nixon. Both Pete and Andy have for many years
played together in the Pink Floyd tribute band Dark Side of the Wall.
Soon after recording a song together, ‘Hypnotized’, Pete sent Andy a keyboard intro with all sorts of military radio chatter and
sound effects and the simple statement – ‘it’s a song about WW1 soldiers falling like rain on the battlefield, fancy a crack at this
one too?’ The reply came back ‘Roger that…’ Out of this came Rain, their debut, concept album focused around the horrors
of World War 1.
