Re: The Style Council and Elvis sing My Ever Changing Moods

DeathWearsA Big Hat wrote Weller's solo stuff doesn't do much for me but I was a huge Style Council fan. So you were the one !! I know Weller faced tremendous media backlash for breaking up The Jam and I personally never felt like The Style Council matched the Jam on so many levels but it seemed so...

Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

On yesterday's BBC2 panel quiz, Richard Osman's House of Games, the final round is Answer Smash where the answer is a mash up of the name in the object/person in photo and answer to question on screen. The Photo was of Elvis and the question was "Which fictional hero had a sidekick called Tonto...

I'm sorry to hear about your friend, John - did he have to go to A&E to get them removed? How did it happen? Did he accidentally miss the vase?


Would make for an interesting conversation at A&E :D

Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers 2017 US Tour

I saw Imelda May supporting the Who at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night

Very impressive set. He style would compliment Elvis perfectly

Re: Your first meeting with Elvis

I can't resist adding to this. My first time seeing Elvis was on the Stiff Tour at Leicester University in 1978. We didn't have tickets as it sold out quickly but we hatched the great idea of going to the venue early and going to the students bar and hanging out long enough to be already inside the ...

Re: Elvis plays Sheffield 20 March 2017

I thought last night was a fitting end to the tour. It has developed over the two years and the extra outing this year seems to have reinvigorated Elvis. His voice has held up well and he seemed in great spirits. I loved the Chuck Berry tribute and heartfelt tribute to the NHS Afterwards there were ...

I've decided to go tonight. All a bit last minute, just bought a ticket from the box office, front row of the balcony to print at home. If I leave in the next 30 minutes I'll be in Sheffield by 6pm depending on traffic and weather. If Elvis isn't decided on bringing Imperial Bedroom to the UK it mig...

I didn't take many photos at the show in Bruges because of the spot light restricting the view. I could have taken more when he moved to the blue chair but by that point I'd almost forgotten I had my camera with me! https://scontent.flhr3-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/17358992_10155178332072422_33235029...

Re: Elvis Detour, Bruges (Belgium), March 16, 2017

Fabulous gig in a wonderfully ornate venue. A bit like a smaller Royal Albert Hall. Unfortunately I was on front row the 4th level and had a bit of a lighting gantry attached in front with a spot light blocking the middle of the stage. I could only see the rim of Elvis' hat when he was at the centra...
