Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I've reached a place where I know better than to assume that another record will be forthcoming, but one thing I especially love about it is that it certainly doesn't feel like a swan song. This album is the work of an artist working at the top of his craft, with a band that can handle anything he ...

Great gallery, featuring Elvis in photo 4 with Robert Quine and Richard Hell. New to me!

You should check out some of the Beautiful South albums--they're very good, with a nice combination of toe-tapping tunes and cynical lyrics. Welcome to the Beautiful South and 0898 are a couple of my favorites.

Re: US TOUR DATES

Sorry for your experiences--but thank you for the alert, because I didn't realize there was a pre-sale today. Managed to get 2 seats in Row S on the aisle in Asbury Park, which I'm happy with. $100 tickets plus service fees = $241 total.

Hoping to enjoy some new songs!

Re: Elvis on Jimmy Kimmel Jan 10 2018

Kimmel mentioned that Elvis was going to sing Alison and will post it on YouTube at some point. Nothing as of yet.

Just Elvis (no guitar) and piano for the main song. Sounded good in this stripped down arrangement.

Got a chance to see Squeeze last week in Newark. Fantastic show. The new album is pretty great too. The (English) Beat opened up for them. I was having serious flashbacks to 1982.
