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

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

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

Flyte - 1995 Flyte



ARTIST: Flyte
ALBUM: Flyte
LABEL: Long Island Records
SERIAL: LIR 00054
YEAR: 1995

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Paul Taskas - vocals, guitars, bass * Nick Monaco - keyboards, drum programming, vocals

Other Musicians: Randy Rodrigues, Jim Manolakos, Joe Spina - bass * Paul Simtkidis, Paul Ruchinger - guitars

TRACK LISTING: 01 Something Going On * 02 21 * 03 Live Let Live * 04 Time * 05 Love Is A Weapon * 06 Hello Stranger * 07 A Quiet Night * 08 Under Fire * 09 Promises Promises * 10 Silent Tears * 11 Something Going On (Guitar Drop Mix) * 12 Time Of My Life * 13 Sometimes I Wish I Was You * 14 Never Giving In


Background
Canada's Flyte is a retrospective release on the Long Island label. The band are a musical expression of ideas between the two mainstays of the band, Paul Taskas and Nick Monaco. Most of the material appears to span the 1988-1992 period. According to the liner notes, the material originally surfaced as a ten track release on tape, which was distributed widely throughout the local Toronto area. So, who do they sound like? How about a cross between fellow Canadians Korea meeting Qwest. The vocals are an acquired taste, and definitely cross swords with a guy like Gino Lionessa (Korea). Admittedly, not my can of lager.


The Songs
The music only marginally makes up for that shortfall, and there are some nice moments although no real stunners. The pick of the bunch would be 'Under Fire', which does indeed stir a few embers. Apart from that, the remainder of the songs don't do anything for me unfortunately, either being too boring, or lacking any real vim and vigour to make it exciting enough.


In Summary
The band also tack on four bonus tracks at the end, and these increase the tempo a bit from those songs which have gone before. However, in summary, it's quite a disappointing release, and one which hasn't really stood the test of time. Too much ploddy material here, and not enough in the excitement and energy stakes.
