Disappointing, but not really surprising. As those of us on the board (and I've been away a long time) know, Squeeze does not really fit into the show's format of one-hit-wonders. In my view, Squeeze is one of the best groups of the past 25 years, along with XTC. I am confident that they will one da...

The first film was entertaining, with an interesting story. As for "Reloaded" (which I saw for the first time last Friday night), I leave you with one word: Thunderdome.

Branst, I promised a cover of "Party Girl," and have not yet delivered. Since we're both in Omaha, perhaps we could collaborate. I don't have ProTools or any such like, so I'm somewhat technologically handicapped.

Slate review of NORTH

From Slate: Elvis Costello, Crooner On his new album, the angry rocker turns into a lovelorn balladeer.

Limbaugh

While I disagree with virtually everything this overpaid windbag spews, I hope for his sake that the allegations concerning Oxycontin/painkiller addiction are untrue. In my law practice, I have seen many, many people end up addicted to these products. Vicious stuff.

I hope all EC fans read this thread. As I have previously contended, PTC is one of EC's most worthy pop efforts. It is a product of its time, but is a great listen from beginning to end. I agree that the bonus disc is outstanding -- Clive Langer's production drained much of the pure pop beauty from ...

I got a promo of NORTH last night from an old friend in the music industry. Still sealed; etc. Being the nice guy that I am, I dropped it off at a friend's house as a gift for him and his wife (they discovered EC's music together about five years ago). I guess you could say "I HAD North." Now, I nee...

I bought Lies the day it came out in Omaha. I devoured it that same afternoon/evening. It is hilarious, insightful and made me sad over the state of the U.S.'s "media." In my view, the First Amendment's guarantee of freedom of the press is the most powerful check on government abuse of power. Even m...

Rope, here is the ha' penny analysis. Elvis wants to be a songwriter (with a capital "S") in the Carole King/Burt Bacharach/Leiber-Stoller/McCartney-Lennon/George-Ira Gershwin vein. Each of these writers produced a body of work that is universally considered classic in the pop medium, transcending t...

Gilli, I have been a fan since 1978, and have always believed your observation to be true. My view is that, unlike a typical "pop" artist, whose continued success depends on his/her relationship with the fans, Elvis focuses on his relationship with the music. Having said that, I also believe that El...

A very dear friend of mine, who happens to be an apolitical lesbian, had this to say after the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling decriminalizing same-sex sodomy: "If the conservative right wing really wants to end gay sex, it ought to legalize gay marriage."

1972 - "White Album" by the Beatles. I was in second grade. I saved change for six months to accumulate the loot. I don't really remember why, but I just had a compulsion to own it. I think my parents were horrified, because their Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass from then on shared time with the L...
