Re: Elvis's most 'Marmite' project

The album I just don't seem to get on with is Secret, Profane and Sugarcane. EC doing bluegrass sounds a great idea in theory but it just doesn't work for me. Clumsy title too - unusual for Elvis. I guess to be Marmite then someone needs to love it - not so sure about that! PS I love Marmite and gr...

Re: Elvis's most 'Marmite' project

I think North would qualify as a 'Marmite' project. I know from conversations on Facebook it seems to divide the fans. Personally speaking I absolutely love both The Juliet Letters and North. For what its worth I love Marmite too

Didn't Barry Evans have an awful death? I think he was murdered. He was a big star on TV in the late 60's early 70's

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.
