“A timeless sound… tapped into the roots of blues, Southern rock and soul… after more than thirty years' performing, his [Mel's] voice still fires that blues-soul delivery,” says Kevin Burke in RNR.

Mel Outsider on the debut album:
“The journey begins: outside a hair salon in Disley south Manchester, with “Disley Blonde”.
In “Misty Colour Hotel” I recall the crummy low budget hotel lobbies I have had the displeasure to visit...
But I just can't let go of the rock n roll dream! I plough ahead, pouring out my heart to my soulmate in “Queen Of The City”.
Factory girls of yesteryear now remind me of working on the fairground Waltzers as a teenager. And a lost weekend in Blackpool with beauty pageant winner: “Miss Victory V”.
I play mentor-therapist to underdogs and wastrels, once again, in the epic “More Than A Three Chord Wonder”.
And that's just the start...”
