Re: ATUB Font on cover

Thanks all, I will post pictures once it's done if anyone is interested to see.

I managed to get in contact with Stephen wherein he told me that the font was taken from a, 'very old type book' that he will try to locate for me.

Interesting little bit of EC history I suppose so far !

Re: ATUB Font on cover

Mojo, I have my left arm as a full sleeve, not all EC as it were though, my upper bicep is my 1962 fender jazz master (Yes, coincidence) my lower forearm is both a vinyl turntable and classic mic like the crooner classics would use. My Bicep is a Vox style tube amp. The 'My Aims Is True' is gonna be...

ATUB Font on cover

Hello,

I am finishing my tattoo which is going to include "My Aim Is True" written in the ATUB font. Can anyone please help find this font type or anything from the record sleeve with all the required characters ?

Thanks,

Re: An Evening With Elvis Costello, Calgary, Dec. 10, 2016

Being part of those 21 year old Hipsters I must say I was completely blown away, my years of scrounging for rarities and bootleg performances never came close to how pure and studio-esque his voice was last night, Ive been waiting to see him in Calgary since I was about 7 so this was a treat for my ...

Peace like a river

Hello all, I have been looking high and low since my computer corrupted (with my lovely 1000+ Costello collection) and I have almost completed it, however I cannot find the Paul Simon Tribute songs nor Everybody's Crying Mercy. Naturally the ECM version I am looking for was the Aids benefit one (?) ...

Re: Probably alone on this one, but...

It never really had any commercial appeal I guess, although when did EC fans ever care about commercial success ? I love ATUB as a whole album so maybe Im partial to the late 90's sound of it.

Probably alone on this one, but...

I absolutely love 'Almost Ideal Eyes', it's one of those funky-mamba kind of songs that has a really nice softer refrain, not dissimilar to the likes of 'Episode of Blonde'.

Does anyone else feel this way ?

I would say Tripwire or Cinco should be them, best radio songs, best songs on album in the eyes of many people.

Re: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, 9/19

Did he fluff the words slightly on both appearances? Not sure as I have only seen the two main show appearances once. He was very much reading the words, not necessarily a criticism with his lyrics. I have seen a lot of comments about how good he has sounded recently. I don't agree and think he has...

I hope so bad that 'Can You Hear Me?' is finally a good recording of one of my personal favorites that fell victim to bad recording quality, namely 'Do You Know What I'm Saying?'

Indeed you do, it's such a fantastically crafted song. Out of all the rehashed lyrics and melodies on the album this is far and away the most spine tingling, wordslinging, beautiful song.
