Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

Thanks for linking to my blog John!

It's not MLAR that's relationship strengthening though, it's KOA. It just happens that (goodness knows why) the person who put the Indoor Fireworks video on Youtube set it to the MLAR album cover.

Hope you liked my blog though :)

Re: Elvis (solo), Birmingham (UK), June 21, 2010

I was there as well. It's only the second time I've seen EC live. The other time was with the Brodsky's last year, so it was fantastic to see just him with a few guitars. A really impressive show. Loved all of it, just trying to think of some highlights. "Either Side of the Same Town" show...

Who has the rights to Costello's Lyrics?

Hello all, My mum works for an organisation called the "Admiral Nurses" who give support to those who care for family members with dementia. She was hoping to use some of the lyrics from "Veronica" as part of some promotional stuff. Who would she have to contact to get permission...

Re: Spectacle season 2

Thanks for the information chaps. Even if it comes as a bit of a bummer :(

Can we get the Beeb to pay for the rights to show it? After all, isn't this what we pay our license fee for? *shakes fist*

Re: Spectacle season 2

For those in the UK, does anyone know when (or if) season 2 will be aired? The first season was on Channel 4, but they shunted it around the late-night slots. Have they bought the second season rights, and said when they'll be showing them?

Re: Fantasy Football 2009/10

Hullo there!

I've got a team on there already so have joined the League.

Currently on 139 points which (I think) puts me sixth - I hope I take those points with me when they add me to the League!

Re: Nick Lowe Dates

I shouldn't even reply to that nonsense - it's all a matter of taste, bla, bla, and of course I refute all three counts - but the guitarist bit is laughable. He's an extremely good guitarist in terms of phrasing, tone, expressiveness. Take a guitarist to see him and see what they say. I am not a gu...

Re: Nick Lowe Dates

I was in Holmfirth too. A really excellent show from Nick. The best gig I've seen since, well, the last Nick Lowe gig I saw at the Southbank Centre eighteen months ago. Long Limbed Girl was really good, as was When I Write the Book; dang it, it was all brilliant. It was the first time I'd seen Ron S...

Re: Elvis/Brodskys U.K. tour -some jumbled images and thoughts

I saw the gig at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham. I did see John Foyle there, I recognised you from the photos you've posted on here. But I didn't have the courage to say hi :oops: It was the first time I've seen EC after being a lifelong fan, so it was exciting just to see him. I would have rather ...

David Ackles

Hello all, On Amazon a few months ago there was a 2/3 CD set of the complete David Ackles. EC had written liner notes for it. I was going to add it to my Christmas list, but it seems to have disappeared completely from amazon uk. I'm pretty sure I didn't imagine it, so does anyone know where it's go...

Doesn't he say in the liner notes to the expanded GCW that "I used to quit once a week in those days, still do" ?

It's just something he's going through (hopefully).

trying to think of artists not mentioned yet....I love Paul Carrack's voice. And Nick Lowe's now, he's rather soulful. And I've never liked Thom Yorke's voice, though I realise that's heresy in certain quarters. It's just too whiney for me.

I'm guessing he'll have found some grotesque hat that he thinks looks trendy. As long as it's not a porkpie or a cowboy hat I don't mind.

Having the names of his kids tattooed on his forehead would be funny though.
