Sounds like a good combo to me. I'm in.

Damn right, that's cool. Can't wait to hear it.

Well, I never thought I could care this little for something.

That embedded video was horrible

Didn't he choke on a banana sandwich on the toilet during a plane crash?

I like pretty much everything Declan does, always have. The guy is a productivity machine, and one of the best lyricists of the last twenty years. People can take or leave his voice, kinda like Tom Waits. But like Tom, the guy is a HELL of a songwriter.

I will give Elvis a listen no matter what experiment he tries. I just love the guy even if some of his experiments aren't especially pleasing to me. The first time I stayed up late to watch SNL, he was on and rocked my 10 year old self. An EC fan since then. Yeah, I am old.

Reading Led Zeppelin biography in which Elvis Costello mentioned - they couldn't figure out why his music was so popular with the music mag writers until someone pointed out that they all looked like him.

Spectacle was great TV, I hope it comes back one day.

All I know about the Roots is a song they are falsely claimed to have covered Link

You'd think AV Club could get better quality video than something recorded on somebody's camcorder in a noisy living room, but it was a good performance, and it was fun to see Pete Thomas, after giving up his drum kit, called back on stage to sing backing vocals. In other Attractions/Impostors recordings he can often be seen singing along with Elvis as he drums, but without a microphone, for reasons that are now obvious.

Yeah, about that...we all have opinions.

Why would The Roots lower themselves to work with that talentless racist piece of shiat?

Pretty much this. His failures are more interesting than Lana del Rey's vapid, thermo-formed mug.

What's a record?
