Re: Girls Talk - live

I've seen him do it a few times in Cardiff and Swansea- I think and he's often dedicated it to Dave Edmunds - it's always been a bit faster than the B-side but maybe not quite as fast as the Dave version - this probably doesn't help much does it ? First performed on the Wake Up Canada tour of Novem...

Re: Girls Talk - live

Great stuff - thanks, all. I have a funny feeling I might have seen it in the Cardiff 'Return of the Spinning Songbook'. So did he go with the propulsive Dave Edmunds' arrangement or the more laid-back Elvis B-side version or was there alcohol involved...?! :lol: By the way I can't believe you omit...

Girls Talk - live

I don't think I've ever heard Elvis sing 'Girls Talk' live. Seems it's been a mainstay of the recent (sadly neccessarily abandoned) tour. Has anyone heard him sing it live, and if so, does he go with the propulsive Dave Edmunds arrangement or the more laid-back Elvis B-side version?

Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

We all love Elvis, who brings us such amazing melodies and words about being a complicated human being (via his own voice, songwriting, and his musical collaborators, not least his amazing band, past and present). We love you, Elvis - and we want more songs to light up our lives for a long time to c...

Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

The S*N tweeted an article to which Elvis replied "Typical “S*N” laziness. People who can’t write for people who can’t think. Don’t need your sympathy. Tell that to the 96 @elviscostello" I presume Elvis's issue is that said rag has headlined the story in a way that suggests Elvis is 'bat...

Re: Elvis and the Imposters European Tour 2018

There have been some fiery tweets from Elvis around this* - sounds as though Paul Heaton might have announced Elvis's cancellation ahead of Elvis's official announcement. And it sounds as though the rest of the tour is off. * fiery tweets not directed at Paul Heaton, but at a fan who has criticised ...

Re: New Elvis/Burt Bacharach songs!!

Hey Neil, don't you think the Imposters might be a bit too "rocky" for PFM V2 - I'd rather have Burt's orchestrations and Steve's piano in this instance and the new Imposters album being like Momofuku ! True - but maybe with things being as they are in the record industry (i.e. no dosh) t...

Re: Big Issue interview , May 2018

Hawksmoor, you're right - the lyrics are very weird and dark, but the sound of the chorus sounds like an out-and-out love song. Sulky - but surely Loveable's lyrics disqualify it? Isn't he saying that his ex-lover is having flings all round town? And he slags off her present lover, I think. But the ...

Verbal, the only thing stopping me from thinking you ARE Elvis is the fact that more than once I've seen you in the same room as him! Re joy - 'From Head To Toe' is pretty joyous in its execution, though the original joy is Smokey Robinson's. And of course, you can always feel the joy Elvis feels wh...
