Re: My Darling Clementine working with Steve Nieve on an album of EC covers , 2020

Assuming England's lockdown is relaxed My Darling Clementine will be doing a socially distanced and streamed gig on Friday 11 December 2020 from The Met, a cracking little venue near me in Bury. Streaming tix £9.00 https://themet.org.uk/event/my-darling-clementine-2020/ for details. From the MDC web...

Re: New album Hey Clockface will be released October 30, 2020

After the range of 'the singles' ahead of this I was apprehensive, wondering if it would be a half-cooked, tins at the back of the lockdown store cupboard affair that I'd end up buying only because I'm a fan. But no, from the moment I ventured into Fopp Records in Manchester to make my purchase whe...

Re: "Secret Jewish history"?

If you do a search on forward.com for Rogovoy's articles you see that his shtick is "The Secret Jewish History of..." Buster Keaton, James Bond, Ringo Starr etc.

I'll never get that 15 minutes back!

Re: Brand new EC podcast

Excellent podcast! Mark Billingham setting the bar high for guests later in the series. Many highlights, his story of ending up in the GoGo cage on the first spinning songbook tour was great and led me to these wonderful highlights on of Andrew Schofield's manic compering on YouTube: https://youtu.b...

Re: 50 Songs For 50 Days - Elvis Costello's October Surprise

I share the disquiet of others of EC championing Spotify, but I'll just have to get over myself I suppose. I've got the 'free' Spotify - I've had it for ages but rarely use it. It's shuffling the tracks and adding others :( The David Byrne book is all very good, not just the chapter on the tiny amou...

Re: Do you have a favorite EC concert?

A wonderful thread, and nice to see a few of my favourites of mine there. Most of my Costello gigs have either been in Liverpool or Manchester, though the only time I actually met the man was after a cracking might at the cavernous old Bingley Hall in Birmingham on the Bedrooms of Britain tour in Se...

At last Strict Time is out! (Though Neil's post makes a great case for it!) It's had my vote since the first round. Not that it is a bad song at all, simply that at the beginning it was one of four or five I might have chosen and I've kept with it. As other more wonderful songs (at least in my opini...

Re: Trust Survivor - Round 7

Something odd going on! The link in round 6 takes you to the round 5 poll. With only 30 votes in round 6 I suspect more than 28 voters were disenfranchised!

Re: Trust Survivor - Round 2

Thanks kosi for turning off the current votes situation, it makes it more interesting for me, and removes any unwittingly suggestion to what the jury will choose in the following round. I consider Trust as one of EC's most even albums, so it'll get harder to vote off tracks earlier than usual. Still...

Re: Armed Forces Survivor - Round 4

This looks like a repeat from round 3? Chemistry Class seems to have gone? Shame, but losing the first 5 or 6 tracks on this one is nowhere near the same pain as Imperial Bedroom or This Year’s Model, for instance. Aha! Thank you, I was confused, I didn't expect Chemistry Class to go this early, it...

No, that's not my style! For me this is an interesting bit of fun that has caused me to listen to each LP several times with different ears as the contest develops.

Sad to see that there was a noticeable decrease in the number of votes cast as Strawpoll doesn't allow multiple votes to be cast. :(
