Re: Elvis's most 'Marmite' project

Okay, so, Marmite. Something both really loved and really not. I'm thinking about what might be Elvis' FIRST Marmite...Almost Blue, I suppose? What would be next? Punch the Clock and Goodbye Cruel World were both limp enough to not count, I think. Certainly Juliet, North, Il Sogno [although with thi...

"It seems to me that underlying your complaint is that EC is not treating this honor with the seriousness you feel it deserves." It equally seems to me that EC is not treating his qualms about the honour with the seriousness they deserve. Song lyric posting feels like nothing more than fli...

Re: Elvis Costello OBE

Conversations about accepting honours from the 'Empire' are worth discussing, clarifying, worth hearing many voices, sides, etc. This isn't just a 'life choice' but a choice ABOUT something in which we are all complicit one way or another. If he has elected to graciously accept, I THINK HE HAS MADE...
