443 Elvis Costello and the Attractions - Armed Forces

1001 Album Club

In January of 1979 Elvis Costello released his 3rd studio album. With Nick Lowe back at the helm, the album marks an end point to Costello’s “angry persona” and is as lyrically dark as he ever got, with many a fascist imagery and heartbreak weaving their way through an album absolutely sticky sweet with pop goodness. Let’s talk Elvis Costello, Armed Forces!

32 Albums in, Elvis Costello is Just Getting Started

Switched on Pop

Elvis Costello burst onto the music scene in 1977 with the album My Aim Is True. Songs like “Alison” established him as a powerful new voice in rock. His next album, This Year’s Model, introduced hits like “Pump it Up,” which has resounded through stadiums and arenas across the country ever since. From then on he released album after album, decade after decade, becoming a force to be reckoned with in pop music. Now, Costello has released his 32nd studio album, The Boy Named If, and it's a kaleidoscopic journey through many of the sounds and styles that he's experimented with over the years.We spoke with Elvis about his wrong notes and open-ended lyrics, his much-publicized defense of Olivia Rodrigo, and why he turned down working with AdeleSongs Discussed:Elvis Costello - Farewell, OK, Magnificent Hurt, Alison, Pump It UpRichie Barrett - Some Other GuyOlivia Rodrigo - BrutalChuck Berry - Too Much Monkey BusinessBob Dylan - Subterranean Homesick Blues Learn more about your ad choices.

What's The Big Deal About Elvis Costello

Ongoing History of New Music

With the way the music industry operates, this guys career should have been dead and buried long ago. I mean no offense…but look at this dude. Even when he was young, he looked dorky. Bad glasses and poor posture. This was a guy who was a computer programmer for a cosmetics company. And in the age of Punk when everyone had safety pins stuck to their clothes, and leather jackets….this guy insisted on wearing a sport coat. Yet he’s still here…still making music…and not only does he have the respect and admiration of many generations of fans, he’s collaborated with everyone from Paul McCartney to Burt Baccarat. He’s delved into punk, sting quartets, jazz ensembles, and more…so how does he do it. And what’s the big deal about Elvis Costello?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
