Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year" (2020 UK tour)

Two things. Thing one. The Nottingham show last year was the worst Elv gig I’ve ever seen. We all know why by now, but I’d happily pay more to see better. Thing two. And this is the important thing. The musicians will want paying in US dollars. The pound has tanked in the intervening months. That w...

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year" (2020 UK tour)

*but for the record the same venue and the same seat in 2018 was £55...he better play twice as long! That’s the point I made earlier. The addition of the two ladies has pushed the prices up by over £40 :? It’s obviously a simplistic comment but it does rankle somewhat. Actually no - because the Jun...

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year" (2020 UK tour)

£97.50 for a front row seat in Nottingham
First reaction - "whaaaat - you're having my pants down there"

"HAVE MY CREDIT CARD DETAILS!"

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

The #justtrustuk2020 Thursday clue is "You need wheels" and a picture of Raleigh "The all steel bicycle". As Raleigh bikes are based in Nottingham I guess that's that one sorted. Cue the moans about the sound quality at Nottingham Arena... :lol: Hmmm – I was hoping the “not the ...

Re: Erich Sellheim's German versions of Elvis's albums - Almost Blue & Blood And Chocolate , January 2019

Blood And Chocolate http://www.mediafire.com/file/ynvlbep5c4dovlx/Erich_Sellheim_Blood_%2526_Chocolate.rar/file OK - someone put me out of my misery - what is he singing on Blue Chair?

Re: Spike: 30 years ago

I played Spike for the first time in years last week to coincide with the 30 year anniversary. I think it is a great album. I could probably live without chewing gum, Stalin Malone and pads paws and claws. As a couple have said it does suffer a little bit with the having to have filler on there to ...

Re: Spike: 30 years ago

I had an old vinyl copy that I sold on back when the deluxe CD was reissued (pre the vinyl resurgence I had a stupid rule that I would sell any record that I had on CD..)

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

I don't get how there can be no UK-based webshop for this?

It's prohibitively expensive to order from the UK and get hosed down by the customs fees :(
