In 1966, Peter Adler quit The Action over musical differences, but soon found another group of British exiles living in Dublin. The Next In Line were a mod/soul group from London who based themselves in Dublin for a time, living in a flat above the infamous Green Tureen restaurant on Harcourt Street. The line-up included ‘Bruce’ (vocals), Max Ker-Seymer (lead guitar), Bojang Meftah (rhythm guitar), Tony Cousins (bass) and Bunt Stafford-Clark (drums) and backing Adler they supported visiting acts such as The Hollies and The Who. Decca issued one more Peter Adler single in May 1966 – ‘I’m Gonna Turn My Life Around’ / ‘But I Was Cool’The Next In Line are reported to have backed him on the record, though it also featured a brass section and organ solo so must at least have had outside musicians involved. The ‘A’-side was written by Adler and is a bone-fide mod gem, with an Oscar Brown Jr. song on the reverse.
