When Debbie Harry was being interviewed by Jo Whiley following Blondie's appearance at Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, she was asked what was in the cup she was drinking from. Debbie said it was a drink Elvis Costello had suggested to her. I think it was rose hip tea with honey.

I'm embarrassed to say I've never heard of this guy before but I thought it was brilliant !
( and it's not just because it's "my song" ! :wink: )
I see this was not a one-off as he's got loads of others on YouTube.
Hilarious and entertaining ! Fair play to him ! 8)

Deer Tick will mark their 10th anniversary this December with a six-night residency at New York's Brooklyn Bowl that celebrates the music they've made together… and the albums of five other noteworthy artists that inspired them. For the first five nights of the roots rockers' December 26-31 residency, the band will cover an entire classic album by a different artist alongside their own tracks.

On December 26th, the band will play NRBQ's jazz-rock favorite Tiddlywinks along with their own debut LP, 2007's War Elephant. The band is also set to cover Lou Reed's Transformer, the Beatles' Meet the Beatles, Devo's Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!, and Elvis Costello's My Aim Is True. The residency culminates with a December 31st New Year's Eve gig that features a fan-chosen set list devoted entirely to Deer Tick's catalogue.

NYC Taper records a lot of Deer Tick shows. Maybe he'll capture this one too.

The question is.......did Henrik get to meet Elvis because of their "same names" or was it because he had a Liverpool shirt on ? ? ? 8)

When I was 35, we took the kids out of school one day and just drove for two or three months around Europe in that car with the tape player. My children’s school wasn’t happy about their absence, but they got the most wonderful education. There was a song called “Girls Talk” by Dave Edmunds, which was written by Elvis Costello, and it captured all of us. We just yelled it out as we were going up and down mountains, to Greek islands and back. It really defines that little trip for me.
