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...

Re: Elvis and The Attractions live on BBC 6 Music Live Hour

Usually they broadcast one track from the session. This one seems to pop up every few months.

Re: Essential bootlegs/ Getting started with boots/ General advice

We could probably subdivide radio broadcasts to include pre-FM; and soundboard to include those assisted listening device and in ear monitor thingies. Compilations can be fun (I may have had a hand in Four eyes one vision) - I especially like the media blitz ones that popped up, e.g. bringing togeth...

Re: Memories and images of Elvis in Ireland, March 1978 - new photos of Belfast show

Amazing to see these. I was at this gig, 16 years old and venturing into Belfast city centre was quite the adventure in those days. Very few bands had visited Belfast in the early and mid 70s due to the troubles, and then suddenly a spurt from about 76 onward - Dr Feelgood, Eddie and the hot rods, T...
