Re: The 'Vanity Factory' trumpets its Elvis past

Paul Lawlor on Facebook - Sad to report the vanity factory is no more (North Acton). Similarly the EC tribute they had outside it. https://scontent.fdub5-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/31162299_10156083159651011_5216597512058428376_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=99ce9785dd402ba65460c0f18ffbd894&oe=5B5FD15E

Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

Tangential EC ( if that isn't a thing it is now) Elvis once said that one reason he embraced a 'soul' sound for Get Happy!! was because the Attraction's 'pop' sound was becoming a cliche, even getting cloned by acts like The Jags , particularly with their single Back Of My Hand .

Taken by Adrian Fingleton , he posted in response to a tweet I posted over the weekend. Even better he says he may have more . https://twitter.com/adrianfingleton/s...
