Re: It's official..."brilliant new album"

The reassuring comment for me is that Elvis says he wants it as an EC and The Imposters album which hopefully means he won't be using any of the "musical" songs on this !!

Re: Banal fanboy list no 475: Elvis songs that sound a bit like other Elvis songs

Only the way you sing them, Neil :roll:
So what are the other 474 lists then ? I’m not admitting to any OCD behaviour, just look on certain torrent sites !

Re: Elvis and the Imposters European Tour 2018

Forgot about Southend, how could I do that ? !! Mrs.Sulky (holder of the keys to the exchequer) is only vaguely aware of these plans currently and I will act all surprised when the time comes and say " but I told you back in March that i was doing these !!" and " but I was bought an e...

Re: Elvis and the Imposters European Tour 2018

Still no sign of a London gig - quite surprising, especially considering there might be a new album to promote though I guess the album, tour promotion thing is so old hat now :roll: The Dublin trip appears to be off but I'm doing Nottingham, Manchester, Plymouth, Cardiff and Edinburgh - just got a ...

Re: Elvis and the Imposters European Tour 2018

Apart from getting in at the very start , all the decent seats have really disappeared. I was supposed to be working on the Cardiff date but my boss offered to cover the last 4 hours so I could go but the best seats are some way back abs the same price as front rower ones on the second tier of stall...

Oh no, now I’m going to hear some banal squawking over some of my favourite Costello tracks !!
At least there’ll be some decent backing vocals from Davey and the girls though :shock: :wink:

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 9 2018

Steve has the wonderfully modest skill of being the most intuitive accompanist and will sublimate his skills just to serve the needs of any performance and then let rip when allowed the freedom - I could quote a thousands examples of this such as the whole of the 1999/2003 Costello/Nieve performance...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Cardiff, June 17th 2018

I’ve seen Elvis in Cardiff in 1984, 1989, 1999, 2005,1987, 2010, 2013 at least . 1984 was awesome for hearing the words and the slower pace of loads of songs, the Confederates were a real swinging band and 2013 , Pete Thomas asked me if I’d seen his cousin ?!!! Ad if I’d know who that was ? Another ...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Cardiff, June 17th 2018

Nearly changed my mind about this - I'd have preferred dear old St David's Hall but £66.50 for stall seems a bit steep for poor beleaguered Taffies :(
At least it's indoors and not a festival !

Re: El Mocambo, Toronto; 40 years ago

A perfect summation - thanks GCM. I'm sure there have been lots of posts about this legendary concert including people who were or who claimed to be the YeeHaw man and it remains legendary to those of us who love the early EC material especially. It remains one of my favourite recordings of EC (and ...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 9 2018

Same feeling as you, BA, I think this will be a torrent of new material that has been welling up since the loss of Ross and I'm hoping for a real barnstorming, LOUD album . have a great couple of nights, looking forward to hearing all about the content and the huge increase in new songs for you :D

Don't let's get carried away; now John and I have planned a trip to Roche in Cornwall to search for the missing MAIT Attractions version and hunt out the infamous Davidstowe wedding venue, we mustn't forget that it's 40 years (and a bit) on from MAIT I'm guessing that it's either an Imposters versio...

After buying tickets like a loon and about to work for over 13 hours due to staff shortages in pathology , this is the most exciting news I’ve heard for ages and, like Jardine, I need to breathe slowly and come down gently. Thanks for this update BA , enjoy your shows too !!
