Award winning progressive rock band Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate's first single from the album 'Out Of Mind'. Defiant rock.
'Stand Up' was inspired by those who stand up against hatred, and against those who rewrite history for political gain. There's a video for this at

'When I Was A Ship' was inspired by Ann Leckie's Ancillary series. The main character had once been a warship, whose artificial mind had been distributed within the ship, and also within many ancillaries - prisoners who have had their minds wiped. The ship itself and all of the other ancillaries was destroyed, leaving just one fragment of the mind left in one body.

'Stand Up' is defiant, angry and punchy. 'When I Was A Ship' starts more introspectively, then becomes more energetic.

Has Off Gentlemen It's Adequate jointly won the 'Beastie's Rock Show Album Of The Year Award 2018' along with Alice Cooper and Roger Waters.
