Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Dublin (Ireland), June 23, 2018

Great review and it looks like there were some great songs played which couldn’t have been expected - There won’t be anymore and His Latest Flame for example 8)

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Edinburgh (Scotland), June 24, 2018

Great interview - and one from which I learned a couple of things. Sometimes these interviews are banal, especially when Elvis is not in a great mood but this one was playful and informative.

Re: Song Titles Game - Part II

Thanks but no thanks...although I did see Mark Little do his stand up comedy show many years ago. He was really good. And I’ve also seen Kylie in concert which wasn’t!

Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

These things happen. Given that Joel runs this from his house I don't think we need to be seeking apologies.

I'm grateful for everything he does to keep us up and running.

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/whats-on/music-nightlife-news/elvis-costello-cardiff-review-new-14796593 "Tears Before Bedtime and Shabby Doll - both taken from most Elvis fans' least favourite album, Imperial Bedroom - only served to dampen the buzz built up elsewhere." Huh? We need a poll...

Re: US TOUR DATES

If there is album promotion then let's hope the UK gets some fair treatment. We haven't had an Imposters album tour forever and a day. We didn't get a tour for Momofuku.

As for Asbury Park, Bruce Springsteen isn't on Broadway that night...

Muddy sound and a short set - I’m not unhappy to have missed this one!

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Antwerp (Belgium), July 2 & 3, 2018

I love this interview - I hope the translation is pretty accurate as I never knew about the Joe Strummer bit.

I also love the line about his head being like a runaway computer.
