Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

EC and Burt were true pioneers. Apparently Sparks and Morrisey have adopted that way of working as well. http://www.nottinghampost.com/whats-on/music-nightlife/sparks-ron-mael-talks-morrissey-281155 "Ron Mael: “I would really hope that could happen. A few years ago there was more of a movement ...

Re: Glasgow 13 October 1977

Here is a wild guess: The tape existed for many years with 10 songs. Recently (the last 5-10) years a review of the gig showed up from a fanzine. http://www.elviscostello.info/wiki/index.php/Kingdom_Come,_October_14,_1977 "......another new one totally unlike anything on the album, "Watchi...

Re: Elvis hints at new release: Lupe-O-Tone's vinyl singles

Hi Fi Entertainment, the distributor, is jacked. Try checking out Wise Ghost from their storefront. The shipping costs are nutty. Is someone smoking meth over there or what? I feel bad the promotion didn't go down as planned. That's lame and I would be totally pissed. It's angered some fans and the...

I feel sure it contains a riff from something, classical or whatever - I'll figure it out eventually. Steve adds some odd lines a...
