Re: Artists who were influenced by Elvis Costello

Elvis Costello - Blood And Chocolate Possibly the most easily spotted Radiohead influence, Elvis’s angriest album nods many parallels in Thom’s more bilious lyrics. Thom finally met Elvis Costello two years ago when Costello approached him at a festival. It tums out that Elvis had heard Thom on the ...

Re: New release based on one of Elvis Costello and the Attractions most celebrated albums!!

From a post on the Steve Hoffmann forum:

Yep. What I’ve heard of it sounds great too (ssh). The band is also nearly finished with a new album, but the virus will have slowed things down on that end.

Re: Elvis Costello - Radio Sessions 1977 - 1983

Just an update, I made a mistake in the original,post, it was indeed Lip Service that was listed as recorded in Beyond Belief, not Lipstick Vogue.

Re: Elvis Costello - Radio Sessions 1977 - 1983

Yes, the Wiki was updated this morning by someone after I posted this on a Facebook page also. The Wiki also details different dates and producers for each of the sessions so it does seem there were two separate sessions. I still find it odd that EC (and Jake) would redo songs from a month previous....

Re: Elvis Costello - Radio Sessions 1977 - 1983

Hi, a question for the experts! I’m passing the time sorting out my various collections into playlists for my own amusement. There’s a reference in the Wiki to a Kid Jenson session recorded for the BBC in April 1978. The Beyond Belief fanzine reported that the tracks recorded were Lipstick Vogue, Yo...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham, March 2, 2020

Something along the lines of The times are changing And peace on earth has come to pass Although the war is raging They say each war will be the last Said the boys back at Enniskellen There's a road block army does all the killing And the BBC will beg forgiveness... Then I can't get the last line a...

Any transcription of the new words in Oliver’s Army, intrigued by the reference to Enniskillen?

Re: Elvis and The Attractions, Montreux 1986 on TV

I think that clip was shown on the BBC at the time. I’ve never seen a complete set list for that concert.

Re: Elvis Costello OBE

Erey, there’s a bit more to the Honours system. Out going Prime Ministers can directly nominate candidates, a convention not always observed but one that has led to accusations of cronyism - if you google Lavender List, Cash for Honours you’ll see what I mean. Mrs May may be preparing hers as I writ...

Re: Elvis Costello OBE

Very eloquent debate. Just a small point Hawksmoor on your comment on the “Prince William” line from Little Palaces, I always took that as a reference to William Prince of Orange. The lyric goes on to reference the Pope, and E.C. would be well aware that different sides of the religious divide in Li...

Re: Elvis Costello OBE

I wonder if he put his own name forward or, if not, who did. You don’t simply receive a nomination. Your name is put forward and then considered. I can understand the hypocritical arguments. I just hope Elvis is not wheeled out to sing Oliver’s Army in the same way as Macca always is to do Hey Jude...

The Beatles eps had similar covers - white band at top with name of song(s) and the word mono, in lower case, top right
