Re: UNFAITHFUL MUSIC & DISAPPEARING INK - Oct. 2015

....EC's life is not really all that interesting, as a narrative. (Lucky for him.) Basically, it goes like this: "Extremely talented scion of a musical family is determined to have a career is music... and does!" This is epic, you could readily fill in for John Crace's fantastic "dig...

Elvis dedicated Down on the Bottom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHaI6KsDSfQ to "everyone who's having a tough old go at it - this one's for you Phil..." It's highly likely that the Phil was Phil Hayes a long time pal. Here's a link http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/real-lives/pickets-p...

Re: Unthanks Liverpool

Hi David,

[ Hangs head in shame emoticon] couldn't get there myself - and the Liverpool Echo reviewer doesn't seem to have either. With nothing concrete to go on, I'm nevertheless hoping that an audio will appear soon, and will be looking daily. Are you reading this Frankly?

Hi Paul Best thanks for these gems. I've got the Sugarcanes to play on my PC - sounds wonderful - esp Psycho :D - but can't get to copy to CD. Detour downloaded but won't play for me. Both these issues are probably down to my ineptitude, and I hope will be cured by Sulky when his son's finished upgr...

Re: Interview in German Rolling Stone, Jan '16

Sulky I honestly wouldn't fret over this - It's the translation which is awful. In Liverpool recently, Steve spoke very warmly of his friendship with Elvis. I assume that Pete's attitude is similar. I think we know that Elvis believes that the success of him and the "best backing band in the wo...

Yeah, at the Liverpool Q+A he said, unprompted I think, that he hadn't written a referrence book and hence saw no need for an index.
