Re: John Oliver on what Coronavirus has done to Liverpool F.C.

Sulky, tempted as I am to your solution - much more than the likely outcome - I feel it's too simplistic approach. Clearly to be awarded the big prize there needs to be a range of factors taken into consideration. I truly believe that any club which can satisfy all these tests truly deserves to be ...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Eventim Olympia, Liverpool, February 28, 2020

That set list isn’t right I’m sure. Getting Mighty Crowded was much later and he definitely sang Flutter and Wow.
Hopefully someone (Sulky maybe) took notes?

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

It seems like Elvis has to actually appear on shows to get his records played - Radios 4, 5 and 6 recently and BBC Radios 2 and Manchester today.

At least it is album of the day on Radio 6.

Look Now is currently number 4 in the Amazon UK CD and Vinyl album chart.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Looks like radio 2 has missed out on making Elvis album of the week again. That honour goes to Jess Glynne. I personally love the album I think its his best record in years Radio 2 aren't playing any new Elvis songs at all - Unwanted Number was played 3 times a few weeks ago. I think he must have u...

Re: EC at Barnes & Noble Union Square, NYC, Oct. 12, 2018- cancelled

Sad. I lost my dad at 15 (‘84) and my mother passed away on 8/25/18. I’m devastated. On top of that, My mother’s sister (Aunt) just passed this week. And if not to feel lower than ever, my employer issued me a PIP one month after my mother’s death. My life is in a bad state now. Thank goodness I’ll...

Jeremy Vine, a big fan, plays Unwanted Number here from 32:41. Sounds great here. Probably better quality than Spotify etc.

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

Bad news in the short term but it would appear that he acted quickly.

Good advice to all us men.

Elvis really needs to think of his loved ones, all his family and friends, and rest up.
