Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

I went to see Squeeze tonight, supported by John Cooper Clarke, and it was a brilliant show all round. Towards the end of the set Chris Difford announced that he didn't remember much about the recording of the Sweets From Strangers album but did remember a few guests came into the studio during the ...

Re: The Elvis Costello/Simpsons action figure

This has been a bit of a prolonged saga. I got confirmation yesterday that the figure had been finally dispatched having placed the order back in January. The strange thing was Forbidden Planet emailed me last week to make sure I still wanted it due to the date of the original order? The next questi...

Re: Elvis 'memoir' now due Oct. 2015 - promo tour details

I'm in the 2nd row too.

Hoping for a book signing or, failing that, a bit of stalking at the stage door.

Any idea how long the event is planned to last?

Re: Clickimin Centre, Lerwick - 16th July 1991

That's the one. I'm the Instrument Technician who caught the gig on the way down from the oilfields. I think I said something like I try and catch at least one show on every tour and this was the 20th time I had seen him. Which became seeing every one of his 20 tours. Journalists? This was then slig...

Clickimin Centre, Lerwick - 16th July 1991

I was wondering if anyone has a copy or scan of the article published in one of the broadsheets (the Independent or Guardian?) about this gig. I was interviewed, among others, by the reporter after the show and there was a decent spread in the paper published a day or two after the date. I had a cop...

Re: I'm Your Toy promo video on Vevo/YouTube

We had tickets in the second row and it was a fantastic seat. I had received a 'proper' camera for Christmas and this show came along too quickly for me to have tried it out. Without any real knowledge of the camera's workings I sat and happily snapped a whole film thoughout the gig. When the photos...

Re: Elvis, solo, Leicester, June 22 '15

Lighthouse was a named song on the setlist. None of the lyrics quoted ring a bell but it was early in the set. I've been trying to track down Lighthouse to see if hearing it would spark something but so far no luck. It was noticeable that quite a few were recording bits on phones and cameras so I'm...

Re: Elvis, solo, Leicester, June 22 '15

It was a fabulous show last night. I love the De Montfort Hall as it was our 'local' venue for gigs during my formative years and a regular on the punk/new wave scene. I loved going to see Elvis there as well as the Clash and the Jam back in the 70s. I first saw Elvis there in 1978 and last night wa...

Re: Elvis, solo, Nottingham , June 14 2015

It was in Nottingham.

The call of Psycho could have been a tribute to one of their long list of recently failed managers. Or perhaps a form of tourettes and a warning to those around :wink:

Re: Elvis, solo, Gateshead, 9 June 2015

Damn, he played Tiny Steps!

I requested he play it at Leicester when I spoke to him after the Oxford gig.

He said "Tiny Steps? I'll see what I can do".

I suppose he could play it again :D

Great show again last night although his voice was slightly croakier than it was in Birmingham. You Belong To Me was a surprise and When I Was Cruel was a treat. Matthew Met Mary was new announced as a new song by Bob Dylan that he knows nothing about. Elvis totally messed up Shipbuilding. He seemed...

Stunning performance last night. It was everything that the last Elvis show I saw, the Bluesfest one at the RAH last year, wasn't. His voice is as good as I've heard it and no complaints about the set list. I must have been sitting very near Sulky Lad as the drunk couple were right below me. I was i...

I think it's hilarious. Josh Holliday sounds like he needs a bit of a holiday himself as I think the heatwave has been getting to him.


Wow, Josh Holliday sounds like a real pretentious prick. :roll:
