Pete tells Disc "We'll be cutting the new disc soon, which I expect will be one of my compositions, 'My Generation'. It's a more uptempo number and it talks about old people and young married people. The fellow who's telling the story can't really express himself properly and stutters. In a way, I'm trying to stop the group getting old. It's the one serious thing we're always talking about."
