Parachute Reborn - XPTs

Parachute Reborn

THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM BY XPTs, FEATURING PRETTY THINGS’ MEMBERS WALLY WALLER, JON POVEY, PETE TOLSON & SKIP ALAN WITH TWO BONUS TRACKS.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on the new front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists, the marvellous "PARACHUTE REBORN” by former PRETTY THINGS members, the XPTs, featuring WALLY WALLER, JON POVEY, PETE TOLSON and SKIP ALAN.
In June 1970, the Pretty Things released their seminal album "Parachute”, a record with a collection of songs (written by Phil May and Wally Waller) that tackled the subject of the gradual realization that the dreams of the counter-culture movement of the late 1960s were beginning to unravel. Upon its release the album was hailed by the US magazine Rolling Stone as "album of the year” – a remarkable feat when one considers the competing releases by such heavy weights as Led Zeppelin, The Who et al.
Fast forward four decades and Pretty Things members Wally Waller, Jon Povey, Pete Tolson and Skip Alan found themselves in a studio in Spain, undertaking the challenge of revisiting the material written and recorded on "Parachute”, extending and reworking the material to produce the album "Parachute Reborn”. The result is a remarkable work, which celebrates the original material, whilst successfully bringing a new edge to such classics as ‘The Good Mr. Square (She Was Tall, She Was High)’, ‘Cries from the Midnight Circus’, ‘Grass’ and ‘The RainTrilogy’. The harmonies of Waller and Povey are as sharp as ever, Pete Tolson’s guitar playing is as edgy as ever and Skip Alan remains the rhythmic powerhouse of the group. The addition of two new compositions, ‘Here We Go Again’ and ‘Think of Me Sometimes’ truly heralds a new era for "Parachute”, a musical experience that is truly reborn.
