Re: Fuji~Rama: new Steve Nieve album

Ditto, en route to Chicago. And to the home of the Pilgrim Fathers ! Never heard that expression before. I think we just call them pilgrims in the states. Definitely a phrase employed here 15 miles north of Plymouth! With regards to the album, I played one side during dinner with my wife and her co...

Re: 40 Years Ago

40 years ago today I attended my second ever Elvis Costello concert at the Great Hall at Exeter University in Devon. I'd graduated and left London to return home and spent a long time hunting for a local job unsuccessfully (thanks Maggie) and reverted to doing voluntary work. I lived 40 miles away s...

My mother died beginning of January. Family with her but no service possible. She was cremated and will pass out remains among my 5 siblings in the fall when covid supposed to be controlled. Know how the man is feeling but could never express as eloquently as he has. Sorry he could not be with her ...

No words ever express perfectly true feelings at such a time but EC has certainly not lost his gift at expressing real emotions.

Re: Elvis receives AMA-UK 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award, January 28, 2021

I'm enjoying what Elvis chooses to disclose now even more than a lot of UMDI - I'm not sure if it's because it seems more spontaneous and less like the formula for writing an autobiography but it also seems more about the music - I don't really give a shit about groupies or falling out with band mem...

I had my No Flag single arrive in Norwich just over a week ago, Sulky. Post everywhere in UK is terrible, though, at the moment. Perhaps Devon is particularly bad.

Whilst I like Look Now and Hey Clockface, they’re not go to albums for me - they’re both albums where I’m happy to skip tracks. Once again, you prove you are really my twin brother !
