Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

I had my No Flag single arrive in Norwich just over a week ago, Sulky. Post everywhere in UK is terrible, though, at the moment. Perhaps Devon is particularly bad. Mine had a tracking number on the email. Could try that? It is true that our postal delivery relies partly on the weather !! :roll: I'l...

Pretty sure he did that segue during the SSS shows in Liverpool in 9th December 1986 according to the wiki . I think there’s probably a YouTube clip of it !!

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

Whilst I like Look Now and Hey Clockface, they’re not go to albums for me - they’re both albums where I’m happy to skip tracks. Once again, you prove you are really my twin brother ! I will say that i'll skip fewer tracks on Hey Clockface than on Look now and I've generally always preferred Elvis' ...

Yeah, loved The Confederates performances of this and so many other rolling songs. Benmont Tench was a real star for me on this tour,he really made the band swing, absolutely brilliant, like Paul Bryan's bass playing in the Allen Toussaint concerts here in the U.K. Both are amazing talents who have ...

Re: Almost Blue

Always upset me a little, as my mum used to sing Mighty Like A Rose to Me as a child and she died 8 years before MLAR was released and it was 2 years after my son was born that the album came out. I couldn't bring myself to sing it to him ! :(

Elvis didn't make too many jokes as he often does in interviews but it sounded like a genuine fan interested in Elvis new album a...

Never boring, Benny,always truly interesting. I loved the Jam, never really got Style Council (too set in the mould of all those 80s "pretty boys" bands) and have never really investigated the solo material other than the obvious ones. I think I saw him live in 1984 in Cornwall but doesn't...

Re: Why have I not been listening to Elvis?

Like you've all mentioned, I've been listening to a whole host of albums mostly from my teenage years, my guilty pleasure being Queen II -especially the white side ( and playing along!) up to Jacques Loussier and his Play Bach series of albums. My son gave me two Tame Impala albums and I've even man...

Couple of other less positive things I picked up on: - he ruled out releasing complete live shows, also saying he had no interest in Dicks Picks style releases - he hinted that he knows his intonation/tuning is ‘off’ but dismissed it as an issue, citing Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday There goes m...
