Elvis Costello Ohne Musik geht bei ihm nix

Von Frederike Arns.
10.03.17

Eindrückliche Beweise sind „She“, „Alison“ oder „Veronica“ – in Elvis Costellos Songs geht’s viel um die Frauen. Der Mann mit der Schmelzstimme ist auch schon zum dritten Mal verheiratet. Aber die innigste und längste Beziehung führt er sicherlich mit der Musik.

Mit ihr hat der 62-jährige Brite, der durch seinen Namen und seine Brille wie eine Mischung aus Elvis Presley und Buddy Holly wirkt, in mehr als 40 Jahren Karriere wirklich alles durch: Er hat jedes Genre zwischen Pop und Klassik gestreift, Soundtracks zu Kultfilmen beigesteuert („She“ etwa kennt man aus „Notting Hill“), und mit unterschiedlichsten Bands und Musikern wie den Specials, Pogues, Roots, Burt Bacharach oder sogar Paul McCartney zusammengearbeitet.
Deswegen tut er sich im MOPO-Interview auch schwer, seine Beziehung mit der Musik zu beschreiben: „Musik ist bei mir allgegenwärtig. Ich daddel’ auf meiner Gitarre herum und auf einmal entstehen aus dem nichts Melodie, Strophe und Text. Aber wenn ich versuchen würde, sie in Worte zu fassen, würde ich ganz schnell in Klischees abdriften und ihr nicht gerecht werden. Wenn wir komplett beschreiben könnten, was Musik in uns auslöst, wäre sie überflüssig.“

„Menschen mag ich meistens nicht besonders“

Deswegen würde Declan Patrick MacManus, wie Elvis Costello bürgerlich heißt, auch Musik auf eine einsame Insel mitnehmen, wenn er zwischen ihr und einem Menschen wählen müsste: „Definitiv die Musik! Menschen mag ich meistens nicht besonders.“


Ziemlich hart klingt das – andererseits sieht er ein, dass Musik auch oft nicht ohne die Menschen funktioniert: „Wenn ich nur im Studio sitzen und Songs produzieren würde, wäre das irgendwann reinstes Business. Man muss auch live vor Publikum spielen, denn erst mit der Neugier und der Liebe der Menschen beginnen die Songs zu leben.“

Bei der Frage nach dem Künstler, mit dem er am liebsten zusammengearbeitet hat und wer von ihnen am verrücktesten war, gibt er sich sperrig-verschwiegen: „Natürlich war es mit Paul McCartney etwas ganz Besonderes, aber wenn ich hier jetzt irgendwelche Namen nennen würde, wäre das indiskret und respektlos. Und ,verrückt' ist das falsche Wort. Jeder Mensch hat seine Spleens und Unsicherheiten. Wenn es danach gehen würde, wäre ich selbst wohl der verrückteste!“

Diesen eigenen und – er sagt es selbst – verrückten Künstler sollte man live unbedingt erlebt haben – am 14. März spielt er solo in der Laeiszhalle. Auch wenn er Menschen eigentlich nicht mag, gibt er zumindest denen im Zuschauerraum dann sicher die Chance, seinen Songs Leben einzuhauchen.

Elvis Costello Without music is nothing for him

By Frederike Arns.
 10.03.17

Impressive proofs are "She", "Alison" or "Veronica" - Elvis Costello's songs are all about the women. The man with the melody is also already married for the third time. But the most intimate and longest relationship is certainly with the music.

With her, the 62-year-old Briton, whose name and glasses are like a mixture of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly, has really done everything in more than 40 years of career: he has pranced every genre between pop and classical, soundtracks to cult films ("She", for example, from "Notting Hill"), and collaborated with various bands and musicians such as the specials, Pogues, Roots, Burt Bacharach or even Paul McCartney.
That is why, in the MOPO interview, he also finds it difficult to describe his relationship with music: "Music is omnipresent with me. I daddel 'on my guitar around and suddenly emerge from the nothing melody, stanzas and lyrics. But if I tried to put it into words, I would quickly drift into stereotypes and not do justice to her. If we could completely describe what music triggers in us, it would be superfluous. "

"People mostly do not like me"

That's why Declan Patrick MacManus, as Elvis Costello calls himself bourgeois, would also take music to a deserted island if he had to choose between her and a man: "Definitely the music! I do not particularly like people. "


Quite a bit hard - on the other hand, he also thinks that music often does not work without people: "If I were only sitting in the studio and producing songs, that would be the purest business. You also have to play live in front of the audience, because only with the curiosity and the love of the people begin to live the songs. "

When asked about the artist with whom he liked to collaborate, and who was the most crazy of them, he gave himself a secret: "Of course it was something special with Paul McCartney, but if I were to name any names here, That would be indiscreet and disrespectful. And 'crazy' is the wrong word. Everyone has his or her senses and uncertainties. If it were to go after that, I would probably be the craziest! "

This is his own and - he says it himself - crazy artists should be experienced live - on 14 March he plays solo in the Laeiszhalle. Even if he does not really like people, he certainly gives them the chance to breathe life into his songs.

Erich Sellheim, who did those albums of covers of Elvis's albums in German , emails -

John,

find below tonight's set list from Hamburg. It was a great show, including six songs I had never heard
before. Looking forward to doing covers of these at some point - for the time being, I'm putting the
finishing touches to my Punch The Clock and Goodbye Cruel World recordings. I'll send them your
way when they're done.

Best wishes,
Erich
