There's only one EC  = Elvish Costello  Wink
 
Most people call him by his initials according to that documentary on Stiff Records on BBC4 on Friday Night.  
 
I got the feeling that anyone who called him "Elvis" did so at the risk of invoking his notoriously splenetic wrath and poison pen.

Manics - This Is My Truth

Ah, now someone on the R11MB was having a go at S.Y.M.M. (South Yorkshire Mass Murderer) off This Is My Truth... for its "awful lyrics". I was meaning to put a defense of them on that thread, but never got round to it. Those lyrics always chill me, they're that powerful. They started to write a protest song, but couldn't, so they used the lyrics to admit that "nothing they could ever say... could ever take the pain away". Also that it's "not the sort of song... people want to hear us sing." Put this over the leaden, defeated chords, with the backwards drums, it was a real thumper to close the album with.

Actually,that was me! Small world innit. It's definitely a spirited defense you make for the song †and I take it on board (and as probably goes without saying I love most of the Manics output) but to me the song pales when you compare it against the songs of The Holy Bible.
 
For example The Intense Humming of Evil from THB, which people compared to SYMM in terms of intensity, evokes the brutal existance of prisoners in a Nazi death camp ("beauty lost, dignity gone"). If the band can confront the sheer horror of six million Jews being slaughtered in the largest historical atrocity of modern age, I would have thought they could have come up with something a bit bolder than that first verse, consisting of Nicky thinking about writing the words to the song and nothing even vaguely pertaining to the disaster itself.  
 
Musically, the outro of SYMM with the tension between the minor/major chords and dissonant guitar solo is affecting, to me, in the way the lyrics, aren't. There's something about those Manics outros, Archves of Pain from THB is similarly astonishing.

During a weekday afternoon of enforced CD-listening, I rediscovered the 'youthful exuberance' of Symposium's One Day At A Time.

I thought it was. Fair enough. I agree about their "outros" (as in Outros Outros Ghali?), the jarring on SYMM (checked it over this afternoon), the way it changes to a major chord during the chorus ("how can you sleep at night") suggests a sneering taunt. (Pretentious / Tonyparsons - moi?)
 
At this point I have to admit I don't have THB and have always meant to put this right.

I don't have THB

 
There's never been a better time, as they say in the marketing business, as a tenth anniversary deluxe edition was released two years back with 2 cd versions (1 the original mix and another re-mixed radio-friendlier version for the American market).
 
And you get a DVD with live performances, including a notorious appearance on TOTP where James Dean was wearing an IRA-esque  balaclava which allegedly brought 25,000 complaints to the beeb. Amazing to think the band that made this  profane, musically relentless and frequently ugly album would go on to be the people's band for a while with Design For Life.
 
I've been toying with idea of picking up the deluxe edition,  but I don't like the idea of paying for remasters or bonus tracks if you have a perfectly good version already, I've managed to break the habit of resisting buying double-dipped (usually 2-disc) Special Edition DVDs
 
I'd recommend it, but one look at the song titles will tell you it can be a pretty harrowing listen and I've heard people level the charge of pretentiousness at the songs. It's not party music ("Nail it to the House of Lords/You will be buried in the same box as a killer", is typical of the lyrical content) and probably won't be regularly on the turntable, but it is one hell of a righteously angry and creatively energetic piece of work.

Yes, I'm glad I've stocked up on new stuff this week, the latest albums of Micah P Hinson, Ben Kweller, The Walkmen and Liam Frost are all really nice.
