We just had a transistor radio in case he would go get us our diet Coke and our Captain Morgan, Go chapter, Morgan and we would get make him go away because he was an impediment to sales. And it was terrible when we were selling our Yeah, he was too aggressive. You do You know what he was doing? And you and I could just like we'd be silly, silly and the bikers with my brother in law, and Julia had to admit that I was right in my marketing. Push when I said that we should do our market research for nipples and Sturgis and my we met. Every lack of every walk of life is in the biker world that was myself was my selling point, And we had read Malcolm Gladwell's book, The Tipping Point, Okay, and this is before the Internet this before every year. Well, three out 21 years ago, and it was like you need the best cross section of people you can if you want to get The same if you want to find out, and I'm going to find the when I made the cover of the rapid city newspaper. Yeah, the rapid at a journal. Yes, I made I'm going to find and make sure uncovered because I told my dad I go. You know, because we've got to find that Lori. My dad worked the eighties angle at Fourth of July said, you know, Are you coming to surges you've tacked for the last couple years. You know, he was kind of mad at me that I didn't go last year. And it like Covid super spirit, You know, I wasn't going. Casey would have divorce me if I try to do that guys. He wouldn't even let you come to my house. Yeah, so I should add together all day. You're pushing the eighties angle and he goes. I'm not pushing the 80 angle because he's going to be 80 this year. And I said, Well, what are you doing? Because, Well, this is my 21st year in a row in Sturgis. So he didn't go until the year and I are you kidding? That was his first album was his first Sturgis and he's been every years since. And he had so much fun. Remember, my Ramblin Rose is Were there Loria camp? My dad can't believe you're going and didn't invite me though. I mean, seriously, that's better in the RV. That's kind of bittersweet. You're not gonna have as much fun. Yeah, you know. Well, my dad can only he's only got one bike. I guess you could get a friend to pick you up. To be, you know, on the back of the bike. I mean, there is room you could buy a ticket. He's been bugging me and I have been telling him for 20. I'll do it.

I was like, This is the greatest place on earth. There are so many hot men here, Salman. It's all men, all men, and even even I don't want to sound bad or anything, but you're sad, no matter what you look like as a woman. You would have the World Series. There you go your oyster, and then then it really was beautiful scenery. But my dad talked my other sister into flying in the day. I leave that he drops him off at the airport, and now he's going to have Two of his daughters to rally around in Sturgis in all the area that you are an overlapping no, but only hysterical. Yeah, I know, I know. But you know, you can only have one pretend wife at a time, because that's my dad's other thing. He's totally fine with letting People think his daughters are his younger wives.

"So let's talk about this other guy. We have not talked about his not. Gotten is Very sheriff joe. Jackson not related to michael jackson jackson. You google the i. It's this is the. This is the guy i know less about out of the two but he's an english singer songwriter. Spent years studying music playing clubs. He scored a hit with his first release. Is she really going out with him. Which i do know the song and nine hundred seventy nine. This was followed by number of new wave new wave singles before he moved to more jazz influenced pop music and had a top ten.

The newly formed. Joe jackson band The next year released their debut album look sharp of of rock melodic jazz in new wave Same as in the vein of elvis costello who talked about he In one thousand nine hundred. Jackson played piano on june armagh album. Secrets secrets again. Okay so basically. What i'm reading is again. He has collaborated with a bunch of people. Much like elvis costello and he's also done some movie stuff like he did left of center with suzanne vega for the pretty in pink soundtrack so sorta the same kind of guy. Maybe a little less known at least to me. Yeah i mean it seems. He also plays saxophone musician. You know it's But yeah they have he all. He also played on with the roots on jimmy fallon so they both have little in common. But yet i mean. I guess career wise have some parallels but i mean they're different but same not the most rock star looking guys but they made it work exactly but but joe jackson is. They all should play saxophone. Yes is is amazing. Piano player is really good saxophone player and just a it. It doesn't take himself too serious. You can see on stage. He has like there's video him with like there's parts of the on a little like bruce lee karate doll and his hand as data some really interesting stuff he does whereas like kind of quirky and he doesn't take himself too sheriff but one thing he had like Like like i was cost Ahead is you have to have a killer band behind you and his band if you've listened to mean. Usually i'd be gushing about the drummer. Not in his family and bass player is super bad dude in this band. So that's that's my unsung hero. This whole thing but Yeah joe jackson has a string of hits in another very versatile guy that can go from songs like really going out with him to reggae influenced off like he would plant sunday papers. Came up for the placement. So that's stuff you know. Sounds very reggae action. Honest like a police a pop reggae fusion there but yeah he's a resume and influence. I mean i remember people notice. He's influenced metal band anthrax to cover one of his songs and the end of job have been jesse..

"elvis costello" Discussed on The Moment with Brian Koppelman
"When you say that that on this record you weren't fully aware of these motifs. Meaning that the whole thing was in many songs. It's about time running out. Not just for one person or the way faces show up throughout the the record. You know whether it's a plastic face or an ugly face or disgraced face their these motifs and they're they're very effectively woven through this album. None of that was planned ahead of time. Like you weren't thinking about faces a lot as you might have been thinking about faces. Because i've been working for five years on an adaptation of bud books facing the crowd awesome with sarah rule who's adopted buds Short story and the screenplay movie so great one of the greatest we. Obviously when you're trying to imagine something on stage you you have to think of a. It's a different medium the fight the you're even adding songs other than ones that happened in the telling of the story. They're not soundtracks. These are musical moments. That are they leave the possibility for movement for drama for moving the story forward and we have to work in balancing those things so sense of face and and a mosque are as really part of that story of you know the story. It's about a a double talking hillbilly singer. Who is andy griffith in the movie yet. Crappy lives in the movie and the cart played by patricia. Nail in the movie is a you know an ambitious very intelligent young woman who's trying to make her way in as a radio producer in in a in a rural town in wyoming and he has ideas of connecting with at the everyman on women in the audience and finds that this guy. You has this sort of way of charming people. Even though he seems slippery and unreliable she bills into a significant figure in in a i in radio and later television as he gains more success so he starts to recognize his ability to sway events. I'm becomes quite meglomaniac. Well see people have been quick to draw parallels to somebody who's television just With political ambition. I think this really over credits. The present inhabitant of the white house with importance because but schubert wrote this in nineteen fifty. Three or something On the film was certainly made after the mccarthy hearings and i think he was commenting on the power of television to sway public opinion. I he couldn't imagine richard nixon as anything other than a rather shady looking vice president and let alone a you know a a a a terrible President he couldn't imagine Ronald reagan so. Why would bud shubert imagine now. We have to speak of what that story really really talks about. Which is the the ability of of the crowd to summon a monster from from their dhaka's fears and desires. And that's why the the the story is called a face in the crowd and not the the ballot of lonesome rhodes which is the main current. Yes now faces of being in my mind and mosques and disguises and is it wouldn't be surprising. I've written twenty songs for this musical which would have been probably opening around now would probably have already opened in new york. Had it not been for pandemic we continue to work on it and we'll move it forward as best we can with all the ambitions of trying to create and communicate over a video connections and and conference calls so that as soon as we can go into rehearsal and work towards an opening everyone one twenty it in some ways it it. The the the the current circumstances could be utterly different. one would hope they would be less Immediate anxiety. Whatever the outcome in the next few days yeah But i will never be a story that this date stamped. It's not a. It's not a satirical skit and that is really why you don't necessarily want to write simple slogan songs you want to try and write songs that have a life in them and i did this installation. I would call it of course fifty songs for fifty day as yes. This is being just something that i wanted to put out there. I wasn't expecting everybody to check in with it every day as if it was a matter of importance but it was something i wanted to do which was to say that herea hero songs that i've either written or recorded over forty three years soon. They probably come from a period of perhaps fifty is because a couple of the mobile. The people and as i said in the note per presenting this idea they are here to console amuse or irritate. Because they speak in tone in in verses of reaction to events the way in which we've seen the same mistakes as were making now being made twenty years ago thirty years ago forty years ago fifty years ago and the same injustices the same prejudice the same bias the same fear the same dread the same division the same manipulation from above show people who should be united divided to conquer and rule. I don't. I'm not telling anybody what they should take out of that. All i can say is. I made these songs. I made these recordings with my cohorts. Here is something you can take out of it if you want to. I'm not saying. I told you so but you know what i told you. So yes well. I'm gonna leave. I've i've there's so many things i wanted to ask you about The themes on this record. But i'll let's try to tie it up with this. Which is there's a line on there where you say. Close the door. And that'll be the end of me. And as i mean taking face it means one thing but an artist who has the body of work you do as you said you just have taken out all these songs from forty three years to talk about it. But there's a finality to that idea and it goes with the opening song right. I have no beliefs and legacy does as you're contemplating this stage of life. How do you get to a close the door and that'll be the enemy. Is that what you think. Well here's the thing that that is one of the two oldest songs on this record. A what is it. That i that i that i need that. I don't already have was written ten years ago. And i kept it till now. Because it's a difficult thing to mitt that you'll that ungrateful it was a critique of of myself. I suppose or anybody that you know that you're you're describing that you always believe that that through that door past that velvet rope around the corner over the mountain into the next meadow is somehow better. The next love affair the next the next year. Drink the next you know. The the next full of delicious food is negates others the the later song right better than all the others that the you know always something no no no fidelity no nothing constant Of course both things can be true that all those new experiences are exciting. I'm not trying to cease the progress it. But but this is a song that i took a while to record and i think i had to go to france to record. It felt like something that should be set in a cafe on the left bank so we went into a student said at. You know adb that. There's a sense of humor to some of these zones. Have very the sense of humor in some of these songs is very dark indeed so people might not even recognize. It's not laugh out loud kind of comic but it's black comic. You know no doubt and that's also true. They're not laughing now. Which is the other older songs. But then the newest suddenly in the initial recordings was the last confession of vivian. Whip which is lyric. I wrote in response to a melody. That steven rayle -til doty. His partner gave to me. As i landed in europe to begin my work which really was not one recording session to recording sessions view to an album but to experiments one in helsinki one in paris followed by a toll with the band the imposters which was supposed to conclude with a recording session of abbey road.

"Breyer up for point. Left-hander the piano oversee cam and the contra bass clarinet. But i had on this one occasion worked with one of the great one of the originators of a of an approach to music and jazz on that instrument. He is undoubtedly the original approach to the base. He'll also happen to be a a mentor of my wife eat. My wife took lessons with him when she was twenty one so there was this when diner and i first met we. You know i could say. I'd had one session with right. Brown she reclaiming some numerous recordings with had you know had was friendly with this family and and he had so many things to teach but the one that he taught that day was just before the red light went onto record. Poison rose right length down to the the mic on his face and said to the whole band. Nobody play any ideas. And i think of that advice so many times people who perceive me as being some sort of egghead. They don't know how stupid i am actually motionless. I am in most moments and to not have any ideas that would ill-serve serve me to get. The end of the tune was the best advice. And this comes from somebody who had played with some of the greatest instinctive artists in the form that he most commonly played and he played every conduct music. But obviously he's a you know one of the great musicians of chas and that jazz being probably the most significant american artistic form given to the weld It it was a such a lighthearted vermont but of course disarmed us all in the moment of playing that song and and i did my very best to sing it as i dreamt it in my head and i still count believe that exists but it isn't better than any other record i made. I may have sung that song better on other occasions i almost suddenly have but i will always be grateful for that opportunity because it gave me something that i can apply to so many situations i i i had. Don't play any ideas in my head. A lot of the time when i was on this two day session in paris because i couldn't believe what was happening that we seemed by some happy accident to a group of people who who were all capable of forgetting what they were told to do in exactly the right way. They knew what to do. They didn't think what they should do. They didn't ask for possible to move between something. One would call jazz all something moment. Code champion musical pope. They just felt the feeling of the song of what i was singing. And what the story was played like that and you can do that. At a furious pace with her out loud electric rock and roll band you do it with something hushed but you've gotta let let as they'll song says let yourself go in a let your feet hit the timber and i put the book down when i got to that. I thought about it for a long time. Because it's so buddhist in a way and it's also i can't say how many times an actor that castro's for a two day part will show up and say i i had an idea for a walk. I can walk. You just want to go not just be here be present. Don't don't worry about it. You know and it really hit me hard that that notion and i could see how how it would be a very freeing thing to hear from a master as yeah about to begin. Well there were you know. Sometimes it isn't even in the words it's just the playing. You know the the things that. I've observed in in some of the a chance and very short encounters have stuck with me justice much as the night tonight Working out of something are the relationship that any long-term band house is a curious one. Because we've known each other in the pete and stephen. I have known each other since pete. Pete is just three weeks older than me. So i just have these few the these few days a year. Where younger than him. Really logically steve. I've known since he was a teenager. He was still in college when he joined the attraction. So you work a lot of things that we've seen each other go through a certain amount of things. Crises an all sorts of things but in the musical agreements that we can reach of coal sits informed by the many that we've spent playing music weather. We were conscious or unconscious sometimes. Playing it that's different to these glimpses of something that you can have in a one off where you you get to be in the company of some great master of the instrument or the a form that you'll never truly enter. That's something different. Or even like as it is in singapore performance that you cherish i so bill monroe the great bluegrass six months before his death. Play mccabe as one of the wildest shows i've ever seen i would put the wireless of that show begins any rock and roll band any free jazz outfit it. It had a sense of possibility and yet when t-bone tonight met him briefly after the show. He was a relatively frail man by then but on stage he was erect and everything was possible and the drive. Coming from the mandolin was the thing that made that music Indelible in american music over fifty or more years And we got the privilege of seeing. I'll never leave me that. I saw him once while other people that i now that i've played with you had the opportunity to spend time with them. Some of them work with him. They learn those lessons in the hardware including his you know sometimes he could be tough on the musicians. So no i so one. Glimpse of the last glimmer of something really beautiful. I've had that experience a few times and the somewhere down the road many many years from now i'll be that guy you know some people would say i am not now.

"And if you are waiting on the line as we new yorkers say are in line as everyone else seems to say in this country. I just want to thank you for that. I want to thank you for being part of trying to restore this idea. This promise of unity of democracy of The sense that everybody can belong in america.

We all put our best faces forward. Our best voices forward when we communicate. Broadly but i know how hard this is for. So many people. I know that the uncertainty of the world we're living in sometimes feels overwhelming and know that i have the the best wishes for everybody. Here i feel you don't normally talk before the interview starts but as i think about all of us and as i absorb what's about to happen this week or this month i find myself having swings of emotional turbulence and so i guess i just wanted to say i see you and i hear you and i care about you i also care about elvis costello our guest today. His music has been a constant in my life. his first album came out. I think it was eleven years old. And so the the idea of elvis costello and then the actual role of elvis costello's music. As i was growing up and particularly in college. The album king of america has been enormous. A friend of mine said you know. There are a lot of greats but elvis really feels like he's touched by something else like this ability. He has to write. Songs is almost other worldly. So i i did my best to do my best to just be really there and engaged in the conversation and not sort of aware. The whole time that. I was talking to elvis costello. I'm not sure. I succeeded at that. But i did my best. If you've listened to a bunch of episodes i'm sure you'll hear it in my voice but it was really intense and strange in the best way to actually be talking to elvis costello. I mean this is someone whose lyrics i so closely and tried so hard to understand what he was getting at someone. I've had internal monologue going with for a log log log time so Hope that while you're listening to the interview. That also is a amusing to you. Okay here we go. I'm also going to just let the thing. I was talking to bob tablet or produces the podcast and we decided just to let the introductory stuff where where i'm just saying. Hi for the first second to elvis as we get our like headphones on and everything in our distant locales. I'm just letting you hear the whole thing. Because i don't know if there was something about it when when i heard it instead of starting with the formal part of the podcast there there was something there was something about the way he processed obviously recognizing that he was going to have to deal with a pretty geeked out person talking to him that i that i liked so so. Yeah here we go. Elvis costello showing up on the moment election day. Twenty twenty no big deal. The world just hangs precariously in the balance just before we start. Thanks so much for letting us use. What's so funny about peace love and understanding on billions. It was.

He's my guest here on world cafe is the new album out called hey, clock face. This album there is a lot of. Heavy. Stuff on it. But always in your music and you've you've been, you've sung about political things for your whole career and they're always or often seems to be. A bit of a smirk attached or sense of irony to it, which I personally find very comforting to be honest. Because I think that's humor. So important. Sometimes than others and I think the goes on. Irony and comedy down always serve. Sometimes you've just got to say straight up in and but it's always good. You. Know you can look a fool. To be so. Zest with with the idea that you anew allow the truth F I mean right in the first track of repeat, the line love is the one thing we can save. Well. It wouldn't be a bad thing right now finally. I have that Motif the the opening figure, and we have this beautiful array of instruments and I said I. wanted to create a piece of music I don't know maybe it's like end like the anti also shell. Let's just play and see what happens. And I'm standing in the in the booth in the middle of this beautiful studio, we're working and Michael Trumpet players playing single a serpent as medieval instrument literally looks like a snake. And it's got this very odd sound. Somewhere between a reed instrument on a on a brass instrument and they all stop playing and I'm yet more more waving my hands like every very film it would look ridiculous. Concrete conducting because there's no beat of such. And I I'm waving to as you play the symbols more and build the Chande and I looked at my notebook in those verses for that. Those they are, and I just read them spontaneous. They had no intention of doing that before they started playing. So what you hear is kind of a recording of new writing the song they're in there, and even when we went into the booth, I said the engineer switched out talking off. That wasn't that was just me messing around and then I played it back out. And actually works. So maybe it was maybe I wouldn't have the. Straightforward A. Might might have wanted that little bit of that ironic distance not say that love is the one thing we can save I might have held that back instead of which the music made me say it. They made me do it. May Be doing well, maybe that's a perfect place to go out on the song that starts the album. Let's listen to revolution number.

"Costello's newest album. Hey, clock face is out this mind and it was largely recorded before the pandemic. I spoke with him he sat outside his house near the harbor in Vancouver British Columbia. Which is why you might even hear foghorn in the background. I wonder how you approach new music like that. If you feel that a new album must have. Either a new sound, a new demotic approach. How do you approach that idea of a new record? Well I about two thousand and ten I tell people I was going to concentrate on live performance I i. I think that was coming to terms with the fact that the model that we had lived by for the previous he is. Wasn't no longer in existence that was you made a record and then you went out on the road and you played the music of that album folded into general repertoire that sometime around then the maybe that was the way the record world itself was changing that's stopped happening. And so I, put my work into I, the revival of the spectacular spin songbook because it put all of my songs in play and left them to the left them to chance literally. Then I was completing this book had been working on for a long time I sought it to fail as have. Everything was about. Using what you had an adding into it and I'm you could change the focus. You're no longer worried about, oh, a play the hit single in. Although on the other hand, even the even the casual Elvis Costello Listener, not the the the committed fan. Has Thirty four albums that you can sample and move around and now I wa I'm completely. I'm completely at ease with the balance between the old and the new is another way of looking at streaming as it Sam, it's radio with all the unpleasant talking taken out. You know and it's now put me out of business. It's not an advertising man's idea of what the play list should. It's the listeners idea of what the players should been the most cases when you you, you've recorded a new album. And talk about the story of an album how do you view the story of Hey clock face high clock as the title track as you know is is deriving from fats waller deriving you're nobody's nostalgic but you're drawing on a musical history you're writing about time which seems to be a big theme in this record. Well, let me start at the top I mean it it was distinctly and outlandish and adventure one cannot imagine now it began with me leaving for leaving early for for tour and Britain. And getting on a plane and flying in a gym that F- flying the flying to Helsinki somewhere where I literally don't know anybody they don't know me. So well, I found a little studio there that intrigued me. I went in the with. The songs in my head rather than in any Khanna Demo form I knew the nature of those particular songs they needed to be brought to life in a moment and not worked at I couldn't rehearse some with my band just had to stop playing. At that approach freed me like literally came into existence in the moment I, made him. And I had a young engineer who was very very adept at the modern era of digital editing which allowed me to do things that you know would've been impossible. So I would disagree that you can't get music of feeling and drive out of this technology. A went from there after three days to Paris, and here's another unimaginable scene for you. Thirty people gathered in an apartment Paris celebrating Steve Naive my piano piano player of forty three years. You know my colleague, my friend celebrating both his birthday and receiving his passport, a group of people kissing each other and eating cake of other's plate raising their glasses and singular muscle as I mean can you imagine the danger we were in you know is it is the idea to get the existing music that's in your head down on. On. Wax as it were was the. Idea and then go from there. No I mean I knew how these songs should feel and obviously I had no way of knowing that combination combination of instrumentalist would be quite as vivid as the. Recordings from Paris turned out to be. level. We then went and did a tour of England you know with with the imposters we opened up in.

It's an interview with Elvis Costello, the sixty four year old singer and songwriter from England who now lives in Vancouver with his wife jazz singer, Diana Krall, and their two kids Castillo has been making excellent records since the mid nineteen seventies records that. Range from punkish pop to super dense super pop to country and western from Ernest to sir, Donna he's particularly adept at bringing a postmodern flair to the elegant foundations of the old school songbook style.

And Sophie von otter, Paul McCartney the Charles Mingas orchestra and Allen Toussaint if you're at all serious fan of popular music. Elvis Costello has at least been on your periphery for several decades for a time. He was nearly very very famous, but to those who loves music he's way better than famous. He's original a musician's musician a writer's writer. He's also got the rare ability to create music that is both high minded an open minded. And as you'll hear now, he does that in conversation as well. Hope you enjoy. If you would just say your name, and what you do. However you'd like to describe that. Hello. I'm Ovitz Castillo. And I'm some kinda musician and writer. So let's start with your new record, which I love, congratulations. I think remarkable it's rich and dense, but also gritty and funny, and it's modern and traditional in its record that no one in the world, but Elvis Costello could have written. That's pretty that's a pretty good compliment. But that that's kinda why hope to do to be to be really truthful was I had these songs some of them. I'd written awhile ago. Some of them were written in collaboration. Some of them are written very recently. And I knew that they were songs that would be served by my band, but they would give us an opportunity to show everything that we can do not just warm aspect fulfill. Roll band is often just asked to be full peace, Robin robot, and that's great fun. But it's it's also great to be able to bring to anything that what you've learned that. Would you've come to understand bailable to kinda quite self to the mood of a ballot? In this case playing collaboration with cutback. You know, I couldn't have imagined as pulling that off twenty years ago Longa. She was. That's not the. You. You rate in the liner notes. I wanted to make a record that we couldn't have made back. There's no point in really there's never to me to me. There's never been any point in making the previous record again as so each one is is to into my Abe and quite different. I mean to people who don't hear those increments change or don't have the same appreciation probably on my same stench into different things than I am the great things we have we have Toby choice. You know, we have so much stuff. We can listen to from the past from the present stuff. That's you know, secret stuff. That's right in the headlines. You don't have to have one of the other. If isn't necessarily a high rocky. Yeah. The of the only, you know, positive things about the. Changes in the way music is hood is that the hierarchy aspect of it is sort of become less oppressive. There are still people that sell massive amounts records, and people are Sast with those achievements. But some of the most interesting things happening in little corners. And that's not that's not to say. Well, I'm making the best of it because I used to sell records. And now, they're all reconcile. It's just that it that's the way it is. I find that the records it really interests me by the people with the people of my generation over the brand new autists, they tend to be things you stumble upon and its reminds me of how wonderful it was to feel as if you had personal possession of over record that nobody else knew about when which was the way it.
