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

Background
Marko Pavic might be a Serbian by birth, but he's been in Italy for sometime now. Pavic (the band) have been around just as long, and they've released a handful of albums too, all going back to 2005, and some of which I have, all thanks to their Italian label Anteo Records. By 2013 however, Pavic were back on the saddle, with a new sound, new drummer and new lead singer. It's their heavier emphasis that caught my ears, something akin to Pretty Maids but taking it to a darker and more dangerous place. Vocally, new singer Joe Calabro has bought in the late 90's post grunge factor, a la Soundgarden and Creed, but the overall package is more than just the sum of the parts.


The Songs
Like their Danish counterparts, Pavic look like they might be tackling subject matter that has a social consciousness, like the title track for instance. We can most definitely say that war is not the answer, but try telling that to warmongers like John Kerry and Barack Obama. Pavic's manic riffing is enough to put hands to ears to prevent the aural bombast. The band have etched some interesting modern effects as well. 'In Your Eyes' keeps a high melody quotient, especially the chorus, and as for the ballad 'Song For The Rain', all I can say is 'way cool'. The riffs and hard drumming occupy the headspace on 'Your Own Misery', while the Duran Duran cover 'Notorious' is damn cool too! Very funky and kinda 'out there'. 'Every Time I Die' has a modern metal tone with 'rough around the edges' vocal work, not quite deliberately distorted. 'Strong Enough' is a tough slam dunk kind of rocker, quite appealing if you're into this kind of thing, and it's one of my highlights. 'Welcome To My World' and 'Free Fall' are both solid melodic metal workouts while the piano led ballad 'Once Again' concludes matters in a melacholic manner.


In Summary
A couple of reviews have placed Pavic in the post grunge brigade, and that's not surprising really. Stone Sour, Shinedown, SIXX AM etc. I'm listening to Pavic in a completely different context, so you'll get out of it what you put in. Though heavy, there is still a load of melody to contend with, probably not enough to induce a saccharine high, at least it won't leave a sour taste in your mouth.
