HTP 2 is the second album by the Hughes Turner Project, a collaboration between Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, etc.) and Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc.); it was released in 2003 on MTM Music and Pony Canyon Records. The second album followed 2002’s HTP and the Live In Tokyo recording. Between the two releases both Hughes and Turner had issued solo albums, Hughes’ Songs In The Key Of Rock and Turner’s JLT. HTP 2 follows similar musical territory to the debut; a retro hard rock sound infused with AOR and some funk, with vocal trade-offs between the two singers.
Pre-Med are a space rock band put together in 2004 by multi-instrumentalist Danny Faulkner and Hawkwind bassist Alan Davey. Soon Lewis Turner (guitar) came in and with the help of drummer Danny Thompson and former Landmarq keyboardist Steve Leigh they produced the band's debut in 2006, originally entitled 'Invisible Spies' but one year later re-released as 'Medication Time' by Voiceprint Records. Lewis Turner was substituted by Eamon O'Neill some time later and in 2008 they offered another album called 'The Truth About Us'. Although influenced by Hawkwind Pre-Med have their own style featuring ambient and hypnotic moods, based on a rich keyboard/synth background and Danny Faulkner's unique voice.
