Jon and Wally in SpainShortly after recording "Balboa Island" with the Pretty Things it became apparent that Phil & Dick would like to strike out on their own with a bolt on band to cover small clubs & gigs. I had made it clear that I was a bit tired of the same old circuit.

With that in mind I got together with Frank Holland to record a spiritual/meditational musical adventure called "Turn On The Light" this now duly completed & out this year. Phil May wrote the lyrics & it sounds great.

Wally & I joined up to record a "Fenmen" tribute/historical CD launched from the "Ugly Things" magazine with Mike Stax.

During this session a surprise telephone call from the one & only Pete Tolson. Are you playing again Pete? Yep! Lets meet up. So Wally,Skip & I legged to Harlow to see Pete T!

Lets re-record "Parachute" we said! Yep! he said! so he we are nearly completed & sounding just incredible.

"Parachute Reborn " by "xPTs" out in April fingers crossed recorded in Malaga by that fine engineer John Wood, thanks Woody!!
We loved doing it! just for all of us!
