Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Newcastle upon Tyne, June 25, 2018

Posted my recording of this show on a certain torrent site and received a cryptic comment from Toasttoast - anyone any idea if this is Chris keeping an eye on the 40 year anniversary uploads and any other EC live material that may be in circulation ?

What a brilliant band name - I might have to try and form one just to use that name now !

Re: Elvis and The Imposters plays Manchester Castlefields, July 6 2018

My refund went through yesterday which is better than I expected and more significantly, much quicker than my refund for the Plymouth Pavilions show (which still hasn't appeared) - and to cap it all, I expect Mrs Sulky will now expect me to show her an equally good time doing something other than se...

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

Reassuring to know that even though I'll never be a good enough bassist to replace Bruce or Davey, I probably could cut it in the Arctic Monkeys, judging by that performance :wink:

Re: Almost Blue Promo 00001

That follows about Jake - didn't Bruce mention in one of his tomes that Jake kept back the "prime" promotional items as his security for a rainy day ?
Now if only Jake had kept back some of the rare live recordings ! :wink:

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 Novemb...

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

Sorry TB, you're absolutely right and even "educated guesses" such as my own are in the end mere speculation- but all I truly want is the reassurance that Elvis knows he's in our thoughts and prayers and that we only want him fit and well as soon as is physically and clinically possible !

Thanks Doc, so much for spellcheck -!! as someone who measures one marker PSA hundreds of times a day , I’m painfully aware of the prevalence of this disease and the need for truly early diagnosis and treatment . Great summary and important to get a clinical view here !

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play the Love Supreme Festival, Glynde Place, East Sussex , England , June 30 2018

That's a brilliant precis of what Level 42 always seemed to represent to me in the 80s, BA ! More about the pose than anything else. Mark King was a good bassist but his style of slap-playing wore remarkably thin after two or three listens and it seemed sometimes like a very poor attempt to be a com...

Elvis re-enforced the idea that this al...
