Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

Thanks for the info, MOOT. I think I wondered if the Little Arrows reference pointed towards Robin Hood and Nottingham, but this is a more exciting prospect. I went on a NALGO treasurers course at the TUC centre in Eastbourne in November 1987 and it was as interesting and exciting as you can imagine...

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

Sorry MOOT but where was the hint about Cardiff? I missed that one. I think I've seen Elvis there 9 times, only 1 less than my concerts in Brum ( no mention of the magnificent Symphony Hall yet either.) Still large swathes missed off the map, such as South Coast, West Country ( and I DON'T mean Bris...

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

PS Mettoy was founded in Northampton but is now based in Swansea - it's only made it more confusing !

PPS, David McCallum was born in Glasgow ( bingo and all praise to Wikipedia (sic)) :roll:

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

I thought I knew a song from my dim and distant childhood called "I Belong To Glasgae" (the spelling meant to represent a cod- Scots accent as per BBC speak) but I couldn't find a reference anywhere on t'internet. Don't know where this ties into the Men From Uncle ( unless Elvis plans to p...

Fantastic, well researched and pertinent review from Variety - which makes a real change to the "His Aim Is Still True" re-visits we have seen so often - well done and thanks, Chris !

Re: Elvis Costello OBE

Great, Rope Leash, really sorry you couldn't make Blondie/EC- I hope other opportunities come your way - but this is another mind blowing statement and much more to think about. It's a bit weird to turn Sixty and realize that most of your teenage suspicions have proven to be true. And even weirder t...

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

With reference to walk softly, I thought about Tread Softly instead - there is a film from 1952 about a murder in a derelict theatre starring Frances Day which has a pretty awful review on line and also the line appears in a poem by W.B. Yeates (The Cloths Of Heaven) who we all know is a favourite o...

Re: London meet up - Saturday 27th July

Neil was nearly a no-show too - keeping us hanging on for a dramatic last minute entrance, no doubt. Perhaps Bruce was worried he'd have to keep us all in alcohol - though I thought most people were restrained. Like others have said, there was less Costello chat and more social interchanges but it w...

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

Weren't Jaguar cars built at Coventry as well ? That would tie in with the 1980 tour when they performed at Leamington Spa (only 11.6 miles away from Coventry.) I think you've missed the whole point here, the registration 709 UXU actually mean Pete Thomas was accidentally fired into space on a trip ...
