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

This is an Italian combo who have come out of left field to release an album bound to interest the readers here. From Torino, In-Side hover between AOR and melodic progressive rock and include two keyboardists, just so that you know which side your bread is buttered. Their bio suggests names such as Alan Parsons Project, Toto, Work Of Art and Europe. That's a fairly wide ranging palette, and even if the album is only 7 tracks worth, it's pretty strong. The synth work is very stylish and intricate, while singer 'Jago' adds texture to roughen up the ultra smooth delivery.

The Songs
The band is led by keyboardist Saal Richmond, and as mentioned, contains 7 tracks. 'The Gate' is an instrumental opener with loads of synth cross-wash. Nice way to open. 'The Sign Of Time' veers to the harder edge of AOR, with drums designed to add punch, though the double kick element did interupt the flow. 'The Running Man' is a really good tune, lots of interesting musical features to boot and one of my favourites. The synth work is one for all GDM'ers to absorb. The keyboard and guitar interplay go into overdrive for 'Block 4 (The Russian Woodpecker)' which is at the technical end of the melodic spectrum. Sort of like Toto doing hardened AOR. 'I'm Not A Machine' isn't as cold and sterile as the song-title might suggest. It's a bit of an oddball, with direction and style changes in abundance, though the melodies are free-flowing. More synth overkill shines through on 'Break Down', but the whole thing is baked in a melodic hard rock oven. No problems there. The seventh and last track 'Lie To Me' is very 80's. It even has a hi-tech pop rock sound from our favourite era, think of bands like Red 7, Mike + The Mechanics and Taxxi.

In Summary
Released at the tail-end of 2017, no doubt we'll be hearing more from this Italian combo. 'Out-Side has a lot of upside, and 2018 could be a break out year for this band. Keep your ears tuned.

I like the songs ,and i would add Asia in the similarities ,those keyboards on the background sound a lot like Geoff downes .The only thing that could be better imo is the vocals ,but it´s their first album and i´m sure they will get better on the next one.
