2016 started with the wrong kind of news, as former band member Dean Peckett passed away in Early January.

Dean was a damn fine guitarist and vocalist.

He told me that during the Autumn of 1984: ”At the time, we (Second Coming) and Party Day were both rehearsing at the same pub, The Rising Sun, on Sheffield Road in Barnsley. I began filling in for Martin as he was very ill at the time. He never fully recovered, and by April 1985, I became more of a permanent member and contributor to the band”.

Also Dean was responsible for the Barnsley gig of Dec ‘84, when both PD and SC joined forces onstage to share the Set, and fortunately, Dean had it video recorded. PD’s only ever live recording!
