Bij opgewonden Costello voltrekt zich een wonder achter de vleugel

Elvis Costello kon in Carré bijna niet stoppen met het spelen van parels uit zijn brede repertoire. „Heb ik jullie mijn flamenco-album al laten horen?”

Hester Carvalho

9 maart 2017

De mooiste stem, de mooiste liedjes, de grootste honger naar muzikale afwisseling – al ruim veertig jaar, op dertig albums, strooit Elvis Costello zijn maniakale creativiteit in het rond. Dat leidde tot een repertoire dat in reikwijdte door weinigen wordt geëvenaard, bleek gisteravond in een uitverkocht Carré, Amsterdam, waar hij bijna niet kon stoppen met weer een afwijkende versie van weer een parel. „Heb ik jullie mijn flamenco-album al laten horen?”, zei Costello tenslotte grijnzend.

Achter hem stond een groot ouderwets tv-toestel, waarop foto’s en filmpjes te zien waren. Het akoestische solo-optreden was losjes opgebouwd rond het thema van nostalgie; Costello plukte anekdotes uit zijn eigen geschiedenis als beginnend muzikant en die van zijn vader, ook zanger. Zo vertelde hij over zijn eigen, vroegere, drankmisbruik, en over zijn vader die optrad voor de BBC-tv. De driejarige Elvis werd eens aangetroffen met een schroevendraaier achter het tv-toestel, bij een poging zijn ‘vader uit de tv te halen’.

Nauwelijks herkenbaar

Hier was Costello de licht opgewonden gastheer in zwart kostuum en rode hoed, die rondrende tussen acht gitaren en een vleugel. In het begin ging de opwinding ten kostte van de muzikale uitvoering. Hij zong te hard en de melodie werd zo opgerekt dat nummers als ‘Accidents Will Happen’, in hun ‘akoestische punk’-versies, nauwelijks herkenbaar waren. Maar aan de vleugel voltrok zich een klein wonder. Costello temde zijn furie voor een licht en teder ‘Shipbuilding’ en een huiveringwekkende bluesversie van ‘Can’t Stand Up For Falling Down’. Er waren ook aantrekkelijke, onbekende liedjes als ‘Blood & Hot Sauce’, van een eerdaags te verschijnen musical. Daarna zong hij het aloude ‘Alison’ a cappella, en leefde zich tenslotte uit op een onstuimig ‘I Want You’, op een elektrische gitaar met zoveel schrijnende akkoorden en dissonanten dat het leek alsof de geest van Sonic Youth in hem was gevaren.

At unfolds excited Costello a miracle behind the wing

Elvis Costello was in Carré hardly stop playing pearls from his wide repertoire. "I have you all to hear my flamenco album?"

 Hester Carvalho

 March 9, 2017

The most beautiful voice, the most beautiful songs, the biggest hunger for musical variety - more than forty years, thirty albums, Elvis Costello scatters his maniacal creativity around. That led to a repertoire that range is matched by few, last night turned into a sold out Carré, Amsterdam, where he almost could not stop again a different version of another pearl. "Did I show you all my flamenco album belong?" Costello finally said, grinning.

Behind him stood a large old fashioned TV set on which photos and videos were shown. The acoustic solo performance was loosely built around the theme of nostalgia; Costello picked anecdotes from his own history as a beginning musician and his father, also a singer. He talked about his own past, alcohol abuse, and about his father, who acted for BBC TV. The three-year Elvis was once found with a screwdriver behind the TV, when attempting his father to pick up from the TV. "

barely recognizable

Here Costello was slightly excited host in black suit and red hat, running around between eight guitars and a piano. In the beginning, the excitement at the cost of the musical performance. He sang too loud and the melody was so stretched that songs like "Accidents Will Happen" in their "acoustic punk' versions were hardly recognizable. But took place on the wing is a small miracle. Costello tamed his fury for a light and tender "Shipbuilding" and a chilling blues version of "Can not Stand Up For Falling Down '. There were also attractive, unknown songs like "Blood & Hot Sauce," a forthcoming shortly be musicals. Then he sang the old 'Alison' a cappella, and finally lived out a boisterous "I Want You" on an electric guitar with such poignant chords and dissonances that it seemed as though the spirit of Sonic Youth in him had sailed.

This is presumably "Stripping Paper," a song registered with ASCAP in early 2014.
