The ultimate daily improvisation - the Special 420 Edition - with the technical difficulties and EC’s double glasses situation. “People tell me this isn’t really a good look.” Classic! Has a hint of The Tap. It sounds great once they get going. These have been great listening. Offers a bit of relaxation when you read/see/hear what’s going on outside. Stay safe y’all.

Looking forward to tomorrow....certainly seemed as if Ajuq and Muriel were looking to disclose more info about the sale of a commemorative poster!!! It was as if Elvis, who was on a roll, wanting to.perform another song, sidetracked the announcing of it. Ajuq assured me more details are indeed coming real soon. Funny, it was almost as if i could see Elvis raising that index finger of his when he is on stage, inquiring if we want one more song!!! :lol: :lol:

Squeeze Sunday. Cool. I hope to catch it live. I’m out of sync with time zones right now. Mountain? Pacific? I’ll put the few brain cells I have to figure it out.

These live streams are a total hoot. So nice to offer this to fans. A real gift. Difford was awesome. EC and Steve were amazing.

EC mentioned doing an online appearance/performance "mid-week." Anyone know what/when this is?

Steve's broadcasts are the highlight of my day.
But I missed the Towns and Cities special so I only caught up with that one today. What a treat! The performance of "London's Brilliant Parade" was a particular highlight and the lyrics of that "Town Called Riddle" song were great too.

Is anyone keeping a list of all the songs Steve is playing?

A brief blog post by "Trust The Wizards" from 30 March 2020:

"Self-isolation with Steve Nieve

One month ago I went to see Elvis Costello & The Imposters at the Liverpool Olympia. This was the 29th time I’ve seen Elvis and at some point I’ll write a proper review of the show to go with my various articles posted previously on this site.

It’s been a while since I’ve been to a standing Elvis Costello gig and having got there early I was able to get a standing spot right on the barrier. I chose to stand on Steve Nieve’s side of the stage so I could watch the maestro at work.

A lot has happened in the month since that night! For millions of people, the world is not really the same now as we thought it was then. This virus has forced change on people in ways we didn’t imagine were possible just a month ago and we are living in difficult times with unprecedented use of the word unprecedented.

But since this whole thing started I’ve been getting my daily respite from the distressing events by spending time every day with the very same Steve Nieve. He’s been doing a live broadcast on his Facebook channel every day and I strongly recommend you start tuning in.

Each day he’s joined by his wife Muriel and their son Ajuq. They play all kinds of things. Versions of Elvis Costello songs both well-known and obscure, Steve’s own compositions, covers of Beatles Bowie Elton Abba Squeeze etc. Ajuq is an excellent singer and drummer. Muriel sings too when they can persuade her. She did a breathtaking version of Indoor Fireworks a few days ago. Last week Steve asked people to send him 5 notes and then he improvised pieces based around those. The man’s improvisational and interpretative skills are just incredible.

We’re all going to be stuck at home for a while so it’s important to have some things to look forward to. These broadcasts are a highlight of my day so why not make it a highlight of yours too.

You can watch live at 6pm each day at Steve’s Facebook page. You can also find videos of all previous shows there.

You can also watch live on Ajuq’s Instagram.

While you’re here, have a read of this interview I did with Steve a few years ago."

Keep watching Steve and AJUQ, and look out for Steve's new album Fujirama - when things start to return to "normal".

MOOT

Can we start a GoFundMe page to buy EC a good microphone and camera?
