Re: New album with the Imposters in 2021?

He was obviously on a roll what with the sessions before and planned for the end of the UK tour. Lockdown has had a great side effect of giving him some space to set all sorts of things in motion it seems. Our gain!

He’ll keep going til these woeful events finish I guess. Extra tracks and that, at least the CD era can be credited with something.

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

I’m loving the new album, the range somehow coalesces together wonderfully. The albums that didn’t reach me in this way are Momofuku and For The Stars. But true for every EC collection is how much more they come together experiencing him perform some of the tracks in concert. It’s a bugger we’re dep...

It's really quite a bonkers concept this remodelled Model but on the strength of Crawling that EC span on BBC Radio 6 tonight it might be a lot of fun

Re: BBC Radio 6: “Elvis Costello Co-Hosts...”, November 1, 2020

I remember watching a 1977 episode of Noel Edmond's Swap Shop (a Saturday morning kids pop show here in the U of K) where a pop and musical theatre singer called Barbara Dickson was promoting something and taking calls from children who rang in. One young girl asked her which current artists she lik...

‘Nick Kent - or is it spelled with a C?’ I remember Bad Company saying when they were asked about his review of them in a Capitol Radio interview around the same time.

C & N New York 1996 2CD - legit?

Sorry to start a new topic everyone but I saw the tax dodgers website has for sale a 2CD of the Costello and Nieve 1996 New York full set, part of which made up the C&N box set back then. Does anyone know if it's legit? I would perhaps like to get it but not if the money is going to gangsters an...

Re: Armed Forces Redux - 6 record set

Interesting to hear Ulster boy and all speculate on this, definitely some treats in store and EC will I’m sure present it all to us very cogently. Part of me feels like this is rather hard work though. Having both sets of reissues already I’d be happy for a box that traces eg the Attractions live th...

Re: The Writers Garden Live - EC to appear on Saturday, September 12, 2020

The funniest thing - and I heard Nick talk about this on an old Word Magazine podcast - was that, in response to the initial request from the producers of The Bodyguard to use the track - he wrote a letter declining and then forgot to send it. One cheque for a million quid later, he found the letter...

Re: Trust Survivor - Results

Thanks for posting Neil - I honestly never realised the depth and quality of Matt and Luke’s lyrical imagery. Surely EC must have tipped the hat to them in an old interview as worthy successors in the UK charts? :D Sulky my street cred in East London, already on the floor, is really suffering now......

Re: Trust Survivor - Results

Thanks Kosi for organising another fun game of survivor. I’m pleased NLS won, it’s a terrific song and, as EC has long claimed, a high point for The Attractions. I’m only slightly ashamed to say that my intro to the song was via the Girls Girls Girls compilation which, after my first EC purchase (KO...

Re: Armed Forces Survivor - Results

Accidents deserved clear winner - it is an unimpeachable and timeless song in a way Oliver’s Army isn’t quite, admittedly by a hair’s breadth. Thanks so much for organising Survivor, looking forward to the next when it comes.
