Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Nocturne Live - Oxfordshire (UK), June 16, 2018

My ticket has arrived . It's interesting to see that only Elvis & co. are named '+ Special Guests'. Mike Scott/Waterboys mightn't be terribly happy at such anonymity .I'm thinking of availing of the offer in the accompanying sheet for reduced admission to seeing the castle. All going well I shou...

Re: Getting to Davidstow, Cornwall on the EC Heritage Trail. April 2018

I linked this account on a Facebook page devoted to Camelford . A poster there says - I remember Elvis and his band spending several weeks in Camelford. They were staying at Outground Mill (next to the sewage works!) and practicing every day. We lived at the top of the hill in High Street and my par...

Re: Getting to Davidstow, Cornwall on the EC Heritage Trail. April 2018

Just before arriving at that location I had posted two photos on Instagram, of me in the middle of a runway ‘looking’ for the hall and of me outside the hall, with a caption saying I was ‘looking for and finding the aircraft hangar where Elvis etc. had rehearsed in 1977. That had also appeared on m...

Re: Getting to Davidstow, Cornwall on the EC Heritage Trail. April 2018

As for the photo in the quarry, it looks from the same session as the photo of the back of the Chelsea sleeve. The UK version of the 7" at least. What´s on the back of the Argentinian version displayed here, i don´t know.


Thanks - I just edited in images of the U.K. sleeve.

Re: Getting to Davidstow, Cornwall on the EC Heritage Trail. April 2018

The trip to Cornwall finally happened. On Friday April 27 th Sulky and I spent a rainy day in Cornwall, checking out where Elvis first rehearsed with The Attractions. We went back and forth between two locations, found what we were looking for and then, unexpectedly, spent time having an online disc...

Re: Trying to get to Davidstow, Cornwall on the EC Heritage Trail

Sulky & myself had an action packed trip to rainy Cornwall yesterday, getting to see the location of the rehearsals in 1977. A full report will appear in due course , these photos will have to do for the moment. https://scontent.fdub4-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/31389193_10155556272992957_146473473...

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 . Irish band The Fanz...

Re: New EC track "I'll Still Love You" on "Johnny Cash: Forever Words"

From that NYT link - A similarly inventive approach guided Elvis Costello in his jazz-inflected reimagining of the poem, “I’ll Still Love You.” “I looked at the lyric and, before I could stifle the thought, the melody appeared in my head,” Mr. Costello wrote in an email. “I left Steve Berkowitz sitt...
