Re: Elvis plays Manchester Castlefields 2018

Anyone ever been to a gig there?
I usually go whenever Elvis plays Manchester or Liverpool. But not sure about this one because that venue looks as if it has the potential to be really shit.

Re: The Style Council and Elvis sing My Ever Changing Moods

Brilliant.
Weller's solo stuff doesn't do much for me but I was a huge Style Council fan.

Re: Paul McCartney: Flowers In The Dirt Archive Collection

So there's the 9 tracks that are on Disc 2 of the Flowers in the Dirt re-issue + the 3 tracks that are only in the mega-pricy deluxe edition (and the RSD cassette).
Does anyone know if there are any other Costello / McCartney demo recordings that have ever surfaced?

Re: Elvis's Worst Song And Why

"Why Can't A Man Stand Alone?" leaves me cold. It's the only song I can think of on any EC album that I regularly skip. Funny innit. That'd be in my all time top 20 of EC songs!! Least favourite: never been keen on 20% Amnesia, The Delivery Man, Georgie & Her Rival and I echo others' ...

The Thyme Machine live in Liverpool this Thursday

anyone in the Liverpool area? The Thyme Machine led by Lancaster's lyrical genius Kriss Foster, are playing at Maguires Pizza Bar this Thursday, they're brilliant. It's only a fiver and Ballard (the bard of Bolton) is supporting. http://www.getintothis.co.uk/2015/07/trust-the-wizards-the-thyme-machi...

I was lucky enough to meet Phil a couple of times, albeit pretty briefly.

Re: 1996 London and Liverpool setlists

A similar question, I was at this Leeds gig in 2005 and I'm sure they played Welcome to the Working Week but it's not listed here. Anyone have a recording who could check?

Whose "I Want You" song is best?

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about songs with shared song titles. I came to the conclusion that the title which makes the best songs is "I Want You". At the bottom of the article, there's a poll where you can vote for which "I Want You" song is your favourite. http://trus...

Re: Massive sound upgrade for iPod for £50

I find the in-ear headphones a bit uncomfortable if I listen to them for a long time.
Anyone got any recommendations for the bigger headphones, something around the £50 price bracket??

Re: Elvis / The Imposters, Barbican, York, 17 June 2013

seeing the Numbers jackpot on the wheel, I thought "great, got to be 13 steps lead down, love that song :D " but no. :x
Not as great as Liverpool last week but still a brilliant gig though.

Here it is anyway....
