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

I think it’s unlikely he would have undertaken a tour within the course of any sort of chemo- if this is a prostrate cancer ( as seems to be implied by the advice to gentleman only) then it’s more likely that the tumour had been completely removed but that the histology has shown exactly what type ...

"Tears Before Bedtime and Shabby Doll - both taken from most Elvis fans' least favourite album, Imperial Bedroom - only served to dampen the buzz built up elsewhere."

Re: Banal fanboy list no 475: Elvis songs that sound a bit like other Elvis songs

The intro to Waiting For The End of The World and the intro to Big Tears have a very similar structure. In a good way, of course.

The 40 year anniversary celebration has got me reviewing some of the excellent ABC News 20/20 video footage, including this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHR1kOBce8s#t=0m20s During the intro to Radio, Radio, at 0:25, he says "They thought they were gonna stop us. [????] was gonna stop u...

Re: New EC track "I'll Still Love You" on "Johnny Cash: Forever Words"

From that NYT link - A similarly inventive approach guided Elvis Costello in his jazz-inflected reimagining of the poem, “I’ll Still Love You.” “I looked at the lyric and, before I could stifle the thought, the melody appeared in my head,” Mr. Costello wrote in an email. “I left Steve Berkowitz sit...

Neat little project. EC seems to enjoy putting together these interesting orchestrations. Burt's influence?

The 1978 Less Than Zero clip is a bit random though.

Upon review, it sounds like the same guy who screamed "Two Little Hitlers" about 1 second prior to the start of Almost Blue. Wildly inappropriate and not a plant IMO. The "Two Little Hitlers" guy was the balcony, or maybe way in the back on the floor. The "Welcome to the Wo...
