Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

Agreed, John - a film with two stunning lead performances. I already knew Bening is terrific but I had no idea Jamie Bell is such a fantastic actor. I think the pacing of the middle gets draggy - too many shots of them lolling in bed - but it's worth sticking it out for the last third, which had me ...

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

No, I don't think Sparkling Day got much publicity, and that film was widely panned. But this Liverpool film seems to be getting pretty good reviews and Oscar buzz for Annette. Perhaps he may be in with a chance for an Oscar nom himself!

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if this a precursor to a new Imposters album. In other news, it's had zero plays on BBC radio so far (at the time of writing - noon on Monday 13 Nov) - check his BBC homepage: https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/8a338e06-d182-46f2-bd16-30a09bc840ba#tracks Not surprising...

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

Excellent - instantly catchy chorus! Elvis doesn't half come up with some great melodies. The video kept buffering, but it looked good. Love the piano riff. Beefy production, too.

P.S. his people should definitely try to get this played on 'Elaine Paige on Sunday', Radio 2 - it fits her remit of songs from films or shows.

I can't make this play on my Android phone, my Windows laptop or my Apple iPad. It's described as an Elvis emotional tearjerker, so I'm sold and officially champing at the bit now! More details, please, from anyone who's heard it!!!

Article about Shipbuilding

(it says '3 decades on', but it's getting on for more than that!) For the record, I've always preferred the Elvis version - vocal and production.

No idea what that font is, I'm afraid - the CD sleeve says that the design is by Steve Averil and Patrick Swan for ABA. So if you're really determined, you could do an Internet search for them and get in touch.

First 'New Lace Sleeves', now this: claims are flying left right and centre. Well, I love ...

Sulkington, that's how rumours start! Ah - New Lace Sleeves! That's more like it - there's more to get your teeth into there.
