Re: Meeting old friends for the first time

Actually, I just (on a whim I don't recommend to others) checked my first couple of pages of posts. Yes, I've mellowed quite a but. I don't feel like that angry young man anymore, and I have no need to be right all the time. (But some of the time...). If I ever offended anyone, I'm truly sorry. I ho...

Re: Meeting old friends for the first time

Yes, still kicking and still playing Elvis tunes whenever a venue will let us. Violet is ridiculously cute, as is her sister. The entire household is unreasonably photogenic, really.

Meeting old friends for the first time

Hi everybody, It's been ages since I checked in, so I hope you are well. I'm in Toronto with my family for holiday, and we're going to see the Imperial Bedroom show Thursday night. Very excited. I also wanted to pop in and say that we finally got to meet Blue Chair and Red Shoes in person. They had ...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

Loving this album. It arrived Monday night (thank you Amazon Prime!) and I played it twice last night. I have listened to it three times today. Gets better with every listening. I am not bothered at all by the re-purposed lyrics. In fact, on a couple of tracks, I think the Roots music is an improvem...

Re: 40 DAYS OF ELVIS COSTELLO: A Countdown To WISE UP GHOST

One of my favorites. I aw the last night of this tour, in New Orleans, and it remains the best live music experience of my life. Also the night I met EC, Steve, Pete, AND Alan Toussaint for the first time. Hell of an evening.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Right in the middle of my fifth listening. It's seamless. The transition from track to track is genius. It's an ALBUM in an age of iTunes singles. This and Bowie's Next Day are my favorite records of the year so far.

The new Vampire Weekend is exceptional. Third time through, and I am digging the hell out of it.

Otis, did you ever hear the Bowie at the Beeb set? And if so, is it worth me picking up?

Re: What are you listening to right now?

The guardian piece is laughably funny. I wouldn't care if he HAD lifted something from T.S. Eliot or The Dave Clark Five for that matter. But the "link" suggested by the piece just doesn't exist. Now for actual lyrical connections, listen to 'Heroes' and then The Next Day. Track one of bot...

Re: Oliver's Army censored by BBC 6Music

When my Elvis Costello tribute band plays this song (we're called Oliver's Army, so, we always play it...) I don't sing the original words, for reasons others have already expressed. i have no problem with them artistically, and I have no problem with EC writing or singing them. But I don't feel lik...
