Re: Misheard Elvis lyrics and hello

From Big Boys, I always thought it was " I was down upon on knee, stroking a manatee"

- which fitted in with my aquarium fixation later in the song about being stuck on a hammer head (shark ) ! :oops: :roll:

Be careful SL. You might end up with an old school bootleg. Including printing errors, wrong songtitles and forged pictures

Hey, krm, that's what I still dream of finding in old record shops even now ! :roll:

Re: What is 'The Beat' about ?

So if it is about wanking, what does the stuttering rhythm mean - it's not like slowly building to a climax (pun intended) , and the little instrumental bit ( especially noticeable on live performances between 1977-79) all have a sort of staggering movement. I don't want to proclaim or indeed infer ...

Re: Mobile Fidelity to re-release Get Happy

I've got the promo double "EP" set of get happy on vinyl which I think has 5 songs a side ( makes my simple mathematical brain look rather good the way i divided 20 by 4 there !) but I've only played it once since I shelled out a kings ransom for them back in the late 80s at a record fair....

Took Mrs.Sulky for a belated birthday present to De Montfort Hall, Leicester last night for her second gig of the year watching UB40. Confirmed my opinion of them in 1984 (or1983) when I saw them at The Cornwall Coliseum, St. Austell - dreadful. An audience who screamed when the title of a song was ...

Re: A Holiday Album? It seems like an inevitability...

I couldn't wait until November when I could play Christmas In The Heart - I so love that album though probably for all the wrong reasons and I had been brought up to believe only King's College, Cambridge were the only performers fit to record Christmas music !

Thanks for letting us know about this doc, so looking forward to hearing this. I love it when Elvis talks about his albums like the Almost Blue, Imperial Bedroom, Spike and Brutal Youth "words and music " promos .

Re: Double Albums

I'm not sure I agree about the last three albums being double albums Only heavyweight prog rock bands in the 70s released double albums with 3 tracks or less on each side of vinyl. The real judgment as to what's a double album should surely be about length of album. After all, most "hi-fi"...
