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.

That's just crazy. I hope Elvis serves you dinner and plays 5 of your requests for that price.

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.

Imperial Bedroom and Twitter

Elvis' Twitter account has been regularly posting lyric snippets from Imperial Bedroom along with some of the artwork from the recent shows. I wonder if he's not finished with this project yet?

Well that's a fine little song there. And I have to say I've never really looked at those lyrics, so some of my mis-hearing has been corrected (Like: why does everybody have to be so heavy hearted...)

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.

Bring on Imperial Bedroom!
