In 2016 Chris Difford, co-front man of Squeeze and Ivor Novello award-winning lyricist, collaborated with Boo Hewerdine to write Fancy Pants; a musical narrative, (described variously as a Play On Words and a Mid Life Musical). Fancy Pants tells the story of how love comes along later in life to save a formerly famous prog-rock musician from a life of melancholic loneliness and obscurity in Margate.

It has been produced as a radio play with a full theatre production planned. The music was available as a limited double CD, but now gets a full release on a single CD: ""Pants"" is effectively a Best Of Fancy Pants, and features guest vocals from Kathryn Williams and Boo Hewerdine.
