Complete remix and remaster. Also now available on CD. Check your favorite online progshop. If not pse contact email@example.com The 10th album by the US sees the return of Paul van Velzen as drummer and co-vocalist alongside Jos Wernars and Marijke Wernars. We have taken the time to record it, because it’s all done at home and Paul’s home is Spain. As usual, all the songs are written by Jos and again he came up with some beautiful melodies and stories. The title track refers to the British Isles, where the Vikings first set foot to begin their conquest of Britain. Little Wonders in Suburbia is a very personal song in memory of a friend who died too young. The Lady of Shalot is loosely based on a poem by Sir Alfred Tennyson and brings us back to the legend of King Arthur. The album closes with the longest track called The Dancing Boys. Acting on a horrible tradition in Muslim countries like Afghanistan and Pakistan, that makes young boys enslaved to act as a substitute for women.

Saw Peter for first time supporting Pendragon at Morecambe. Wow!
Why has the system let Peter down and why has someone who should have stumbled upon his incredible music years ago not done so?
We MUST find a system which promotes great acts like Peter Jones at gigs we all go to.Id pay a quid extra to fund some promotional system.
Can call it “Selling prog for a pound”.
How many other great bands do I not know about?
Because it is the most exquisitely seventies prog rock influenced music I have yet heard - the mix of Yes/Genesis with some King Crimson thrown in is, at times, overwhelming. (And, as a sixty year old man, the reference to Trumpton/Camberwick Green is more than welcome!) vicar888
Anyone with an aversion to "contemporary prog" should listen to Wobbler and they'd realize that prog classics are not just confined to the 1970s. This album is just so tight on every level that if you'd have told me this was recorded in 1974, I'd have no basis for questioning it other than the lack of more prominent tape hiss. Great from start to finish! babayetu
