Simply put, the two best performances I've ever seen in my life. Thanks for coming to the Honeymoon Capital for the first time Elvis and bringing along the brilliant Crescent City Horns! Wonderful to hear his Elvis' very own horn arrangements to episode of blonde on Friday along with AT's horn arran...

I have never in my life looked forward to a concert as much as this one. I grew up in NF as a kid between '78 and '96 and in those eighteen years, not one person in that great town listened to more EC than me! Even though I was only eight years old when This Years Model came out. It is beyond my bel...

Favorite track from River in Reverse

I hope this hasn't been covered yet since I've been out of the loop for a couple years but which tune is your fave from the new album? Just vote for one! I'm assuming it hasn't been addressed since the disc just came out. Tears, Tears and More Tears is the Scaremonger's personal favorite but that sh...

O God what a wonderful album he's done! Waiting and waiting for another albums with wall to wall horns was worth it. Many songs are very reminiscent of the great Deep Dark Truthful Mirror because of AT's input. Listening to it and knowing Elvis is back in Ontario next month makes me cry tears, tears...

Judging from the events that took place at the Chicago gig and having joyfully witnessed the Toronto show 24 hours earlier, it appears to me that the last two shows were probably the highs and lows of the NORTH American 'NORTH' tour. I'm certainly pleased that was at the penultimate show. As many ma...

I got unbelievably lucky! I was walkin' down Victoria to the box office where we met and about half a dozen fans were waiting apparently for some time. Literally 30 seconds later Elvis and Steve walked out with Milo after the soundcheck and the Scaremonger was the first to rap with Elvis and get him...

Elvis Costello and The Imposters , Toronto , March 2004

What an unbelievable performance :!: There's something about Massey Hall in Toronto that always brings out the absolute best in Elvis and Steve. It was a magnificent concert filled with incredible beauty thruout the night. I experienced emotions hearing the songs from NORTH that I didn't even know I...

Just like '02 Blue. I was beaten to the punch after the Amphitheatre show and you did it again! Glad you got to meet the man! It was too cold so I figured havin' rapped with him before the gig was cool enough. I was Toy Soldier/Scaremonger on the old board: now I'm Toy Soldier-Scaremonger !

Out of the fifty tunes after having made fifteen picks, only three of my choices made the list. I'm pleased with that since I've always liked knowing that I dig the more obscure pieces that most others don't. But of course, Beyond Belief was on my list too :!:

For your first post you've come up with quite a good question and have inspired me to respond! A good username you have as well. In '96 on EC's first club tour with Steve, I saw them perform a beautiful version of 'Black Sails in the Sunset' at the Warehouse in Toronto. It was so memorable that the ...

This is possibly the only time we disagree Monk. I believe Elvis is consistent with both the quality and quantity of his albums. I think the albums he's done in the last twenty years are all deserving of having the songs on them that they do. I would go beyond that and say that in the past fifteen y...

I lived in Vancouver for a couple years and Vicki Gabereau used to come into the movie theatre I managed quite often. She is one of the best interviewers in the country and it'll be great to see hear rap with Elvis and Diana. Perhaps the Scaremonger will email her a few questions to ask The Man! :D
