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

R.I.P the great Cyrille Regis. West Brom legend, plus Coventry, Wolves and Villa too. Aged 59.

RATING:


Background
I've always had a soft spot for the voice of Parramore McCarty. From those early days with L.A metallers Warrior, and then with Steve Stevens Atomic Playboys, McCarty has a unique style which is well suited to the metal genre. I'm not sure what he's been doing in recent times, but his return with new band Radiaton Romeos (cool name btw) is well overdue. It's in the style of his former band Atomic Playboys and since the band name is taken from the lyrics of the song 'Atomic Playboys', that's to be expected. This is quite a melodic affair, probably not as overblown as that 'Atomic Playboys' record, but there are some good moments.


The Songs
The opening title track definitely tries to recreate that Atomic Playboys vibe, and it succeeds. However, I'm thinking that the album is a bit lopsided style wise. I was hoping to hear more out-n-out metal tunes, but instead we get material which sits better in the melodic hard rock arena. Sure, 'Mystic Mountain', 'On The Tightrope' and 'Monstertraxx' veer toward the heavier side, but when you hear tracks like 'Ocean Drive' and the super-melodic ballad 'Like An Arrow', plus the Tattoo Rodeo styled 'Ghost Town', do you get this impression of imbalance.


In Summary
Despite my indifference, this is an above average record, though I'm feeling I won't be taking it out for a spin that often. Great to see Mr McCarty back though. That much is good.
