Re: on track… Elvis Costello and the Attractions (paperback), July 29, 2021

This f---ing guy says he did the book because after his Queen and Pink Floyd books he was "looking for who I'd write about next," THEN goes on to say that he got interested in EC after hearing When I Was Cruel.(!) He heard This Year's Model for the first time in 2002. I stopped listening a...

Could it be that this tour won't feature backup singers? Fingers crossed!

Re: Looks like an ELVIS & IMPOSTERS TOUR for 2021

When EC played Brooklyn Steel a couple years ago, I thought that was fantastic and I hoped it would become a regular stop. Alas. no offense..obviously, now, the regular stop is PORT CHESTER!!! hope it is close enough for you to enjoy the ride Speaking of Brooklyn...how is it that he's never played ...

Once again...."New York City" shows that aren't in New York City. WTF? I'm glad...that Beacon Theatre has really become corporate venue dreck! I'll take these other three trips happily if I'm in the mood for several shows. I hear you, as regards the Beacon. But it's simply not plausible t...

Re: New album with the Imposters in 2021?

I feel unable to express my nitpicky opinions after this now :D Well, I'll recover, don't worry :D don't forget, different people have different experiences. For me EC is a national treasure for all the amazing things he's done in the past (and influencing several decades of my life). He certainly ...

Re: New album with the Imposters in 2021?

Apologies for the harshness of my initial post. I’ve been a fan of this site for many years and certainly was not referring to anyone here with my “least loyal fan base” comments. I suppose, just like most of the dedicated followers here, I’m just constantly perturbed/mystified by the ongoing lack ...

Re: 2021 Live Dates?

I'm sure it'll be at least a short tour.

My prayer: Please let there be 1) No video backdrop on stage and 2) No backup singers.

Agree, its a consistent album and has aged well. I also rate Momofuku.

This is getting a bit "thin," isn't it? What next, a limited edition 7" of "No Flag" played backward?

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

Agree with topbalc and Hawk...except for the part about these recent records equaling EC's 70s-80s stuff. That's crazy talk. But yes! How lucky are we that he's not only still active, but doing interesting and different work here in 2020. It's a blessing. I long ago reconciled myself to the reality ...
