The great divide...




Very little info about Foreign Press other than the fact that it's an English group formed in 1979 and which will stay mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "The great divide" released in 1983.


As such alone, we had to devote this article to them.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1979 ... a trendy sound for the end of the 1970s, but it is clear that this group still has a little work to do to hope to integrate the big leagues in the long term ...



1982 ... the sonic evolution is obvious and a pleasure to see, especially to hear. We can therefore hope for a sequel worthy of the name ...



1982 ... even if the progress is obvious, it still needs to be fine-tuned to be able to compete one day with the best. So let's be patient ....



1982 ... it is not the year 1982 which will allow them to take off more than that but anyway, the bases are now laid. Let's wait and see what 1983 has in store ...



1983 ... you just had to be a little patient. Because the big takeoff, here it is ! They simply deliver the flagship of their discography here and at the same time offer themselves a direct ticket to posterity. HU-GE !



1983 ... a particularly inspired year in 1983 which saw them succeed in everything they did. Certainly, this title will not reach the same level of recognition as its predecessor but it holds up, that's clear



1983 ... a good job once again. The group has finally found its cruising speed as well as its style and proceeds quietly but above all surely !



1984 ... a year 1984 which saw them stay in the big leagues without too much problem but which did not allow them to move up a gear ...



1984 ... unfortunately, the group will never be able to move up a gear. They will always have delivered titles of certain quality without producing THE title that could have seen them compete with the best ...



1984 ... hard to work miracles when a band's career is so short, that's for sure. They will still have produced several high-caliber titles in a few years and that, no one will be able to take away from them !



1984 ... an adventure that will go no further. They had the potential to do great things but fate will have decided otherwise. Hard law of the trade ...
