And is that what they call it in the UK? Predrinking? Here in the US, we call it pregaming.
I'll have to remember that - I'll actually be headed up to Brownsville, Texas next fall, hopefully, and I imagine there'll be plenty of that going on

And for the record your Armchair Guide to Costello changed the trajectory of my music taste forever. Distantly acquainted stranger pals you’ve know for more than a decade for the win! Almost feels like I should be asking after your mum.
Yeah, that kinda took us all by surprise here, he actually didn't tell any of us he was doing that. Just goes to show, sometimes real life happens like a Richard Curtis movie!

Always good to know I've managed to turn someone into another Costello fan I should at least update that thread with the last 4 albums he's released since I was last active! I actually finally got to see him about 5/6 years ago. Great show, just a shame I had just about the worst weekend ever around it. Then again, I was in London, so I should have known what to expect....at least now I can now say I've had my London Nightmare - a rite of passage for every Brit

I'd like to see your Armchair Guide to Costello. I'm kind of a fan too, dating back from the beginning. When everyone else was listening to Fleetwood Mac and Ted Nugent, I was listening to Costello.

If I get time, I'd actually re-do the whole thing. Not that the ratings as they are would change that much - what I called my favourite Costello albums back then are still my favourites now - but looking back at it now is kinda like looking back at old photos. Cringe!

Hey Clockface is an absolute beast of an album, if anyone's curious.

It's one of his best albums, I think. Certainly in the kinda B+/A tier.

As for the others I didn't get a chance to write up, Look Now is kinda average, The Boy Named If has some excellent songs on it but plenty of duds, it's a bit of a mixed bag, and in the 9 years since it came out, I still haven't listened to Wise Up Ghost properly!

I got 3 songs in and had to shelve it for later. I did like what I heard though.
