Aynsley guests on new album from The Mentulls!

"Reflections" is the stunning new album from The Mentulls, released on July 10th. Aynsley was kindly invited to play a guest spot on this album and features on "Time to Focus". The album is a superb third release from Andrew, Jamie and Nick, brilliantly produced at Superfly Studios by Wayne Proctor.

Pete Feenstra reviews the album...

"Andrew Pipe teams up impressively with guest guitarist Aynsley Lister on ‘Time To Focus’, an unadulterated, twin guitar-led homage to Wishbone Ash (with perhaps a half pun on the band Focus). It’s so good you could imagine both Andy Powell and Martin Turner would love to have written the two-part anthem, with outstanding guitar lines that so clearly evoke both the band and the prog rock era."
