Have been watching Spectacle for a couple of months now & I agree, it's an excellent show. I'd watch anything with Elvis C in it, though! Only problem is that for some reason it's hidden away late at night & quite easy to miss as a result. An intelligent show about music should be more primetime IMHO.
Have not heard of Austin City Limits at all. Anyone heard of Later with Jools Holland (BBC2)? Usually pretty good, but totally live, so performances do vary a bit! I can also very much recommend Radcliffe & Maconie on BBC Radio 2 - great range of music/very knowledgeable/very funny! Should be available worldwide, thanks to the old interweb. It helps if you get the British sense of humour!
Anyhoo, just love Elvis & his songs - I have a stab at playing a few of them (Red Shoes, Candy, Alison, God's Comic, Working Week, Everyday I Write The Book).
Love the little guitarist RavenLady, is that you? Used to have friends in Calgary, but seem to have lost touch - would be there like a shot, otherwise!
Hey Paul, Just found that little animated gif online, google search. Though it almost looks like a girl, so I picked it.
Yes, Love Elvis Costello's music and his show. I have a collection of Saturday Night Live DVD's. Think it's called the first 25 yrs of music. Great collection to have. Not only all the best performances but some of the artist's doing skits with the cast. Anyway, Elvis was one of the first guests. I actually remember watching the show where he came on and was supposed to do one song, started the first few notes, stopped his band and played something else entirely. All the while the director going NUTS. But it's a great performance. Haven't learnt any of his songs yet. I must see about remedying that.
I've seen acts on you tube from Later with Hools Holland. Looks like a very cool show. Love British television too. We're lucky to get Elvis's new show on a HD channel that shows it's schedule earlier than the regular stations. It's our Friday night show now, for sure. Just at the right time. Finished dinner, dishes, a little jam of our own and then we can sit down and enjoy the show.
