Re: London meet up - Saturday 27th July

Bruce made that album with Spencer Brown a year or two ago. It seems he maybe doing more writing as hid Tyson Fury book followed his Man United book pretty quickly.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Gettysburg, PA , July 17th 2019

I am guessing while they are still playing the Look Now album the BV's are a regular thing. I have not seen them in the UK as the dates I was due to see last year were cancelled due to his health scare. I have seen Elvis open with Pump it up. One tour he used to play a noisy solo version to start th...

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

I think the 1980 tour of the Uk is probably the least well documented of all his UK tours and it's fantastic that we've got at least four people who have witnessed that tour, Goon Squad at Canvey Island , CTB at Southport, Hawksmoor at Colwyn Bay and Offshoreram at Peterborough - in 6 months time y...

Actually he seemed quite decent about it. Of course I will be amazed if he turns up but he didn't dismiss it out of hand.

Re: “Cruel To Be Kind”: book about Nick Lowe

Standing room only on the first balcony VG. The crowd up there were probably people who didn't want to stand. I forgot to mention Will Birch was in the bar upstairs and he was also had the Bruce Thomas/ Derek Philpott signing a few of us went to. The bar was quite star studded we were sitting beside...

Looks like the female fans might outnumber the men for the first time in the meet ups that I have attended.

Mrs Sheep, Paulina, Janice, Clare and Susan are saying they will all attend.

Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

David Hepworth's new book Fabulous Creation about the rise and fall of the Long Player, opens the chapter on 1979 with the intro to accidents will happen. He talks a bit about Armed Forces. Elvis does get a couple of mentions previously in the book too.

Re: A Case for Song (1996)

I bought a CD of what i believe is the full concert on Amazon. But I did check the other day and it isn't available at the moment. Which of course is of no use to you. :D I think it is called Elvis Costello Live and was great quality I am sure other here must have it too. Perhaps it is on ebay

Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

VG I think Elvis was also the first person to play The Specials on the radio. I remember him playing gangsters on roundtable saying 'here a record I just bought today'
