Help! Seeking: EC on TV with drum machine / sampler

Postby Generic Industries » Sun May 10, 2020 5:26 pm

Hello all -- I just joined the forum with the express goal of solving a mystery that has been bothering me for years.

Ages ago I saw Elvis Costello on cable television. The format, I believe, was a talk show focused on musicians. They would chat with the host and play some tunes. My best guess is that this was probably between 2000 and 2005.

EC was a guest on the program. He performed Watching the Detectives with a drum machine / sampler and a guitar. It was INCREDIBLE.

I've never been able to find the clip.

Anyone here know what I'm talking about? I would love to see the performance again and put this mystery to rest.

Thank you all!

I think this is the show, but it doesn't appear to be available online.

Wow. Wow! Finally!

Yes, this is it. It was definitely with David Wild interviewing.

Thank you so much for the help.

Now to find the show...
