Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Does anyone have sales figures for Look Now? I guess I would also ask someone to help me understand them. I no longer have much sense of what a 'good' or 'bad' sales figure would look like, especially in e.c.'s case. I guess my main question is what sales are required for a CD like Look Now to at le...

Re: t-bone as SXSW

seemed to me his speech was about each of us developing a conscience (with this being what artists are, or can be, about) and electing this or that politician can't really help with that. I've learned more from e.c. and t.b. [and a long long list] about become alert, remaining compassionate and affe...

Re: t-bone as SXSW

[a small apology first (Canadian after all!). i'll stop REALLY soon]. Well, MOJO I think you've got it right there! On the face of it, the internet seems to be what it appears to be, benign, but t-bone details some of its hidden face, hidden powers and potentialities and money and deception. And the...

Re: t-bone as SXSW

something about the behind the scenes manipulation/distortion/faking/hacking/profiting/manipulation and how easy it is becoming to take locales of honest communication and twist them...sometimes, like hacks, just, what? for fun? because you can?

Re: Fraser Anning Tweet

hopefully he'll have a 'sorry about the hack' note, just to acknowledge and dismiss.

somehow this seems connected to the t-bone sxsw speech....e.c and t.b. need to do a cd called Fake (one creepy layer underneath the looknow facades)

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters: Purse EP (Record Store Day)

as someone from Canada . . . in the days before the internet, i would often find an e.c. import item that i had no idea existed because music mags. that might mention them would arrive here later than the import vinyl itself. so there is an old memory, here, of availability/unavailability and indepe...

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters: Purse EP (Record Store Day)

This is a great IDEA, and I miss record stores dearly, but almost no-one has access to an independent record store any more, me included. I don't really understand how this 'supports' indie stores. Can someone help me here? 3000 copies. Do the proceeds go to indie stores? or just draw people to them...

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

I'd be interested in who you think his target audience might be, e.g., with Look Now. Hard to imagine, for me at least, who it might be other than me/us, so to speak. But I don't have any idea, either, of how well his stuff sells.

"Go for it if it floats your boat and don’t worry if it doesn’t." Perhaps this should have read "Go for it if it floats your boat and don’t worry if it don’t." One might then say, however, "spare us the theatrics and the verbal gymnastics," which, of course, puts us rig...

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

Whose greed, though? Those who impose import duties on an object you can only get by importing it? Elvis? his label? This is, no doubt about it, an extravagant thing. And it looks like there is elaborate art work, etc. involved. It is all expensively done...i hope so, anyway for the price being char...

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

I agree, Hawksmoor. Different formats, etc., is one thing. But making music out of reach is another. And it may have come to this in order to survive in the weirdly scattered world of music making. Luckily (but unfortunately also) there will be "other" ways once the new stuff is released. ...

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

to tell the truth, i just bought a new one because i found the l.n. cd so harsh to listen to and, well, 'flat' -- no depth of field so to speak (on earphones it was okay, on the $8000 system, brash and loud, and if i turned it down, too quiet...very strange) and i kept reading about technical stuff ...

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

i've got to admit that as someone raised on 'singles' and flip sides (she's a woman!), that list looks utterly delicious (look now! i'm the sort of sucker this is for I guess??). some old memory trace of two songs back to back. getting very very brief memory rushes of waiting for the 'next' single o...
