Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

I will say now that I already listened to 4 songs off the album over and over until I got my grubby mits on the full album... I feel like I ruined them for myself haha thank god I got other songs to help me cope with 'Post-Piracy Depression'

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

Indeed you do, it's such a fantastically crafted song. Out of all the rehashed lyrics and melodies on the album this is far and away the most spine tingling, wordslinging, beautiful song.

'Tripwire' has got to be one of the most gorgeous songs ever.

Has this album even been leaked yet ? I know that there was a fairly poor job on keeping NR under covers from pirates but this one seems to be more closely guarded ? maybe ? no ?

Yeah also that song 'playboy to a man' joins it. Ok so the song has slightly grown on me after my massage this morning lol (my poor back). Thanks for picking up on the apple noise hahha

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

Even though I have over 800 songs of his (different versions, demos, etc) I, with regret, hate this song. I don't know if Elvis is trying to channel some Brutal Youth feel here but it just sounds awkward and disjointed.

Painted From Memory Demos ?

As I've read, Elvis not only recorded demos for the album for Burt but also for Bill Frisell, do these exist ? If so where can I find them ?

Re: A Case for Song: Tart

This song is as was described as a 'classic Costello sound' I can't articulate it any better, his voice is in peak condition on it and the lyrics are so ... perfect. I miss the songs like this ! The Kohl Black Seam lyric is kinda weird

A Case For Song: Mr. Feathers

So in all fairness I love this song, however I haven't a clue what to think of it. Purely in terms of instrumentation it sounds like it could easily be both a sequel to 'God's Comic' and a prelude to 'Jimmie Standing In The Rain' (Note worthy that there is a very similar line to the 'Stale bread cur...

A Case For Song: 'The Scarlet Tide'

Really no introduction is needed for this song, it's beautiful, intrinsic, simple, I love it. Not played often enough live, although I will note a live performance where EC plays it solo in a small guest chair on a Late Night Talk Show.

Satellite, live ?

I've always wanted to hear this beautiful song about something not so beautiful live (Minus the gift of sexuality :P) does anyone have this on mp3, video recording, 1970's tape recorder (You know who you are :P). If you could share whomever you are I will be sooooooooo grateful !

Re: 40 Terrible Albums by Great Artists - Guess which EC alb

I would but it destroyed my ear drums! Don't you find a certain sonic poetry in it? Talking of destroyed ear drums, I quite like music where my tinnitus blends successfully with the noises being created, and MMM is like tinnitus gone mad. I think seeing it 'performed', or something that took its cu...

Re: 40 Terrible Albums by Great Artists - Guess which EC alb

I can't get over '20% Amnesia' it's just too much. Then again, this comes from the same guy who hates 'Tear Off Your Own Head (It's A Doll Revolution)'.

Elvis Costello... The Man and his attires

I know this is stupid but I am so fascinated with the off-beat, eccentric style of the man. Please, for my own sick pleasure, post pictures of his most odd attires you've seen !
