Blueside make the cover CD and get a full page review of our debut italian!

Not sure what they are saying but they definitley like us with the song 'Meltdown' making the CD issued with the magazine.

The opening paragraph reads:

I l progetto di chiaro stampo britannico e una perfetta sintesi di lievi trame ambient e riverberi elettronici. Concepito da tre musicisti cresciuti ascoltando Genesis e Led Zeppelin, il loro disco d'esordio regala suadenti e sognanti paesaggi sonnori. - Italian New Age Magazine No 180


Streaming tracks available at and are also available deep inside iTunes. Our ambient rock instrumental 'Meltdown' made the cover CD of the top quality Italian New Age magazine.



Based in Preston, UK, Blueside play live as a solo acoustic act delivering the songs via a 12 string;the songs are pitched in a fresh, free flowing busking style which keeps the audience interested. On CD the songs become fully realised rock tracks underscored by Simon Davis on the electric guitar, Elad Fish on drums and Richard Hoddinott on keyboards. Most songs start out on the 12 string and are built up from there.

Neil is influenced by classic songwriters like Jimmy Webb and Burt Bacharach, with a preference for off the wall chords and roaming romantic melodies.
Simon is influenced by a range of styles from indie, country and rock and seeks to play something distinctive on every song. Key influence is Johnny Marr.
Richard's writing comes from a classical direction with a deep understanding of chord relationships, melody and arrangements. Key influence Sting.
