Re: The Complete Armed Forces (Super Deluxe Edition)

Sulky - fortunately for you there isn’t a tumbleweed smilie. :lol: :D :D :D :roll: I love the pastiche posters which are clearly close to Elvis’ heart. Do you think he had that much input to the artwork? I'd have prefered some Eamon Singer daubs even if they wouldn't necessarily be of that time!

Re: The Complete Armed Forces (Super Deluxe Edition)

Couldn't agree more, SP! Eh? I don't get what your issue is, fellas. The intention is to parody 1950s comics/cheap novels, so surely they've more than succeeded in their aim? So, Neil, are you telling me ........................... wait for it ............................ Their Aim IS True :D :D :D...

Re: New album Hey Clockface will be released October 30, 2020

On a couple of reviews that I read, the most noticeable effect was playing these on "lo-fi" players rather than at the high end of the spectrum. One reviewer said he noticed the difference most in his car rather than on his £22K CD player I always felt that this and SACD was a ploy for hi...

Good catch, Tripwire's a near-certainty. There's a great version out there somewhere by a kids' choir. Brilliantly imagined, I can hear it now with gentle tinkly piano or a harp !

Re: "Shut Him Down" - single by Michael Leonhart Orchestra, Elvis Costello & JSWISS

This sounds great, apart from there's something about the lyrics and pitch that make them hard to make out. Does anyone else expect Elvis suddenly to burst out: "Because I'm baaad I'm bad Ya know it Because I'm baaad I'm bad Ya know it " Shamon. Neil, the only trendy teenager on this foru...

I always felt Elvis should re-write some alternate takes on hymns - Bedlam, Stations Of The Cross CCIU no 4 have obvious spiritual references but if Elvis out his mind to it he could revolutionise modern church music rather than done if the vapid charmless drivel that passes for so much of modern ch...

Thanks.

Just a couple of questions:

2. How do we donate?
