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

I've seen Elvis 6 times at Nottingham over the years ( from 1996 onwards) and the strangest concert was the John Harle show when the audience was composed almost entirely of jazz fans who wanted to hear John Harle's sax playing. There were huge murmurs of discontent at the half time interval followi...

No rare tracks from Trust then but Episode Of Blonde - a magnificent showcase for Steve's talents and probably extra special with backing singers - hope there's a recording somewhere :wink:

I never get decent stall seats at Hammersmith Apollo for Elvis gigs! Let's hope it's standing (big hope indeed :lol: )

If memory serve me right, the last time we saw Elvis there, you were down the front by about the 6th song :D :roll:

Re: Help us help Elvis on his forthcoming Fall tour...

If this tour is going to be "Trust" based then maybe next year we could have a sort of countryish feel with some "Almost Blue" and "Delivery Man" tracks and these mentioned above would fit in fine with that sort of idiom.Not quite Sugarcanes but in that whole Americana ...

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

I think the 1980 tour of the Uk is probably the least well documented of all his UK tours and it's fantastic that we've got at least four people who have witnessed that tour, Goon Squad at Canvey Island , CTB at Southport, Hawksmoor at Colwyn Bay and Offshoreram at Peterborough - in 6 months time yo...

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

A trip around the seaside resorts of Britain in February doesn’t sound that enchanting to me but as I live in the south west with coast all around, I’ll take any that come my way. Just a pity that the Cornwall Coliseum was demolished a few years ago .

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

I knew it - the UK tour is going to mimic the Get Happy! Tour of 1980 and do all the out of the way places, Yeovil, Fishguard, Hastings , Bere Alston ( my Home village ) and even more obscurely Goodison and Orpington :shock:

Re: My Darling Clementine working with Steve Nieve on an album of EC covers , 2019?

The show was very low key and somewhat experimental, through the Steve songs were perfectly acceptable and well worth laying down in the studio. For me the Talk Talk songs were i) unfamiliar and ii) generally less well written and I didn't come away thinking I'd have to familiarise myself with the m...
