Re: Look Now: new album announced!

How many of these songs were supposed to be on 'Face in the crowd' project? Those songs sounded great on the 'Detour' lets hope they see the light of day.

do we know if the songs slated for Friday are a physical release there's nothing on Amazon today.

Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

I received a message from a 'reliable source' on Tuesday or Wednesday, after speculation on Facebook about vocal surgery. To say it wasn't vocal surgery and that in the long term there was nothing to worry about. Elvis just needed rest. It looks like he is all clear just needs a rest. Thank God

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Newcastle upon Tyne, June 25, 2018

Elvis I think only worries when its Liverpool. We went to the RFH many years ago when England had a match in Turkey and we thought he would watch that. When we got in he had already been on 20 minutes

Heaton and Abbott are probably the bigger draw in the UK now I am afraid. They look like they are playing to decent crowds on the 'forestry live' circuit and have had two decent selling albums in the last couple of years.
