  1. Escape Pod - Elvis in the Attic

    By Catherine M. Morrison

    http://escapepod.org/2009/05/14/episode-199-elvis-in-the-attic/

    Read by Ben Phillips

    First appeared in SCIFICTION.

    We had an Elvis in the attic. Again.

    Echoing in the ducts, his voice woke me around 2 A.M. I hopped from bed and headed for the attic–they always it up there. A Vegas Elvis stood by a rack of old clothes singing “Blue Christmas” to them.

    As I edged in the door, he segued to “Jingle Bell Rock.” He waved me down to the front of his meager audience, conferring a special favor. I settled cross-legged on the floor and enjoyed his tunes.

    For months there has been an Elvis infestation all over town, but this was the first Vegas Elvis we’d got. He worked the room hard, sweat dripping down the side of his forehead. He was dressed in his trademark white jumpsuit with the spangles and beads and the big white cape he flourished dramatically. The acoustics up here sucked, but even a big fat Elvis could rock the house.

    Rated PG: contains Elvii.

    "The one song The King couldn’t sing."

    Elvis Presley returned from his years in the army to record one of his biggest hits, “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” But he could never quite get the lyrics right. Why? Revisionist History puts the King of Rock and Roll on the couch.

  3. Episode 137 - Bruce Thomas of Elvis Costello and the Attractions

    Episode 137 - Bruce Thomas of Elvis Costello and the Attractions

    December 19, 2017

    There was a New Wave revolution happening in rock music in the late 70s and the poster boy for it was the bespectacled Elvis Costello and his band of Attractions, which included our guest this week bassist Bruce Thomas. While the band was leading a new charge, the various members were also sorting out a dynamic that saw Elvis rise as their clear leader, a move that never sat well with Bruce. Over the years, tensions mounted and Bruce eventually left the band. All of this, as well as his own musical and personal history, are included in Bruce’s book Rough Notes which came out last year. Here we talk about what’s at the heart of the dysfunction, our conflicted feelings about Elvis, and Bruce’s new career as a prolific writer. Also, he’s one of the world’s experts on Bruce Lee of all people! Pick up the book and enjoy the ride!

  8. Shipbuilding

    The song from 1982 was written by Elvis Costello and Clive Langer for Robert Wyatt and has been recorded in several versions by Elvis Costello himself, Suede, June Tabor, Hue and Cry, Tamsin Archer and the Unthanks. Its blend of subtle lyrics and extraordinary music makes this a political song like no other. It transcends the particular circumstances of its writing: the Falklands War and the decline of British heavy industry, especially ship-building.
