Elvoid, meanwhile was lurking about in the doorway of his dressing room, a wide brimmed trilby pulled downover his shades, the collar of his KGB overcoat pulled up around his ears. He looked like he might come over at any time and ask us to hand over the plans of the tractor factory.
In March 1986 , Allan interviewed Elvis ( who was promoting King Of America)

I remember meeting you in Ireland, the summer after Trust came out and you seemed quite seriously depressed at the time.
That was a real low point , that whole time. I was really ill. I was drinking too much and taking too many drugs. I don't think I knew my mind at all. I was very unhappy. If you constantly wake up with hangover after hangover you can't think at all in the end. I don't think I was thinking very much at all then. I just had an opinion.

MM photographer Tom Sheehan took this picture of me with Elvis that afternoon. Jake Riviera must have been elsewhere, shouting at someone.
Great reading about this show and period of EC. Has any audio of this show ever surfaced? Would be interesting to hear.
