In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

Treason - 2000 Code Of Silence

Jason Saunders - vocals
Karl Haug - guitars
Jim Dixon - bass
Ted Stockwell - keyboards
Peter Stern - drums

Treason ... a mix of new age melodic rock with a feel of the old seventies and eighties, mainly the Jon Lord type keyboard work. This being their second album but I think with the line up change of vocalist Jason Saunders, and the duration in between, we might as well treat this as their first album. The mention of Heart's Ann Wilson sowed a number of presumptions that were ill placed I think. The one track she sings on is very much a 'Treason with Ann Wilson' track, the rest of the album is a mix of grunge meets the new and the old with plenty of melody mixed in for good measure.

The Songs
The vocals by Jason Saunders has a strong presence, combining savvy grunge and melodic roughness, but I'm still not sure whether I quite bond with it, but it is interesting nonetheless. Strong also is the keyboard and production presence of Ted Stockwell. Lyrics by the acclaimed songwriter Sue Ennis adds a refreshing amount attention to the lyrical content that all to often seem to suffer these days.

In Summary
Treason demonstrate that they are a band of substance, where emotion and melody meet at the crossroads of past and present. An album much more likely to appeal after repeated listenings rather than the first time airing mean that this is more than superficial music. Well worth a listen, and well worth keeping an eye on too. Treason could easily prove to be a real surprise just as much as they could betray and fade into oblivion.
