Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

I finally received mine a couple weeks ago here in Seattle. It spent over a month with no tracking update like it had been lost in the mail, which led to multiple emails to Second City noting my concern about a limited item I bought through them seemingly not arriving. Granted, it wasn't their fault...

Re: Elvis recieves AMA-UK 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award

Cool stuff, as usual. This is interesting: “The Delivery Man”, a record I had briefly considered calling, “South”. The sequel to North? I remember him saying this on tour prior to the record coming out - may have even been the North tour. The crowd definitely took it as a joke, and it seemed that's...

Re: 2020 - goodbye and good riddance

Hard to think of anything that brought me more joy than enjoying the Steve Nieve virtual performances and the buildup to Hey Clockface on here this year.

First thing I do after getting through my work email each day is seeing what is going on here. :)

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

Agree with topbalc and Hawk...except for the part about these recent records equaling EC's 70s-80s stuff. That's crazy talk. But yes! How lucky are we that he's not only still active, but doing interesting and different work here in 2020. It's a blessing. I long ago reconciled myself to the reality...

Re: Almost Blue

Cursive's 2003 "The Ugly Organ" features an opening instrumental track called "The Ugly Organist" and its first traditional song "Some Red Handed Sleight of Hand" has the lyric "Sing along- I'm on the ugly organ again. Sing along- I'm on the ugly organ, so lets beg...

It's a really curious little oddity of an article about Elvis - I vote "let it stand".

Re: "Secret Jewish history"?

This is an utterly bizarre and insulting closing statement. Costello is known in some circles for his support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement’s cultural boycott of Israel. Perhaps the origins of Costello’s anti-Israeli feelings date back to a failed romance he writes about wi...

Re: New album Hey Clockface will be released October 30, 2020

I gave it a half listen late last night before falling asleep (it's been a long week). My prediction was this would be a sort of modern "Spike" based on what we had heard to this point - a bit uneven and all over the place. It definitely veers here and there, but I can't confirm my initial...

Re: The Complete Armed Forces (Super Deluxe Edition)

Sulky - fortunately for you there isn’t a tumbleweed smilie. :lol: :D :D :D :roll: I love the pastiche posters which are clearly close to Elvis’ heart. Do you think he had that much input to the artwork? I'd have prefered some Eamon Singer daubs even if they wouldn't necessarily be of that time! Th...

Re: Trust Survivor - Round 6

I've been voting for FAWTAS since round 1 - I don't hate it, but I also don't think it stands up to the other tracks. I often find Elvis's duets a bit off, though - something about his very distinct voice paired with a more traditional vocal talent doesn't quite blend to me. It'll be hard going forw...

Somehow missed this before creating a duplicative thread. Glad to see Steve reached the 200 minimum and looking forward to my copy!

Steve now has his 200 subscribers :D

MOOT

Oof - turns out my surprise that there had been no thread was based on a foolish oversight.

So glad to see the 200 finally was reached!

New Steve Nieve Album

Hello, long time lurker, former poster who long ago lost their credentials and the associated email address. Surprised to my already see a post about this, but Steve is crowdfunding his new album and doesn't even have the meager 200 backers he's seeking. You can back it here: https://qrates.com/proj...
