Re: The Thompson / Costello Connection?

Collaboration may be too strong a word, but following his appearance on Spectacle (some of which is here:)

I have a strong feeling that EC will appear at RT's Meltdown in June, in which case expect the two to share the stage at some point.

Re: UK tour 2010

At the risk of stating the obvious, Richard Thompson is curating the Meltdown festival at the Southbank Centre in London this year. EC is a former Meltdown curator. Meltdown runs from Friday 11th - Sunday 20th June. EC plays Symphony Hall in Birmingham on Monday 21 June, so my money would be on a Me...

Re: SPECTACLE APOLLO 2 debut!

Does anyone know if or when Spectacle Season 2 will be broadcast in the UK?

I cannot find any reference to season 2 on the Channel 4 website. Their promotion and scheduling of Season 1 was poor, so perhaps I should not be too surprised.

Re: 'A Room Of My Own - Elvis Costello ' c. 1978/9

The Pope is as infallible as usual.

My manuscript note on the original cutting from The Observer colour supplement dates this to 15 February 1981. The white socks with Doc Martens look did not come into "fashion" until 1979/1980, on the back of Two Tone.

Re: Elvis on One show next week

Was it just me, or was anyone else impressed by EC's capacity to come out with some Bush-bashing and anti Gulf war statements in answer to what were some fairly bland questions about Spectacle? Who'd have thought, incidentally that EC was big friends with Christopher Guest from "Spinal Tap".
