In 2013 Kris was reunited with Tim Wyatt, who had been involved with the Grobbert and Duff recording back in 1972. This was after Record Collector had written an article about the single which has become a Psyche classic and is featured on some compilations of that genre. They decided to record an album together, Tim wrote most of the lyrics whilst Kris wrote most of the music. The album ‘Naming the Darkness’ was released in October 2013 as Gray and Wyatt, more information here www.grayandwyatt.com or on this site here.
