Elvis Costello – The Artist
Declan Patrick MacManus (born 1954), better known by his stage name Elvis Costello, is an English musician, singer, songwriter, composer, record producer, author, television presenter, and occasional actor. He began his career as part of London’s pub rock scene in the early 1970s and later became associated with the first wave of the British punk and new wave movement that emerged in the mid-to-late 1970s. His critically acclaimed debut album, My Aim Is True, was released in 1977. Shortly after recording it, he formed the Attractions as his backing band. Costello and the Attractions toured and recorded together for the better part of a decade, though differences between them caused a split by 1986. Much of Costello’s work since has been as a solo artist, though reunions with members of the Attractions have been credited to the group over the years.
Alison – The Song
‘Alison’ is a song written by and first recorded by Elvis Costello in 1977 for his debut album, ‘My Aim is True’ on Stiff Records. Costello claimed the song was written as an ode to a young woman he saw working at a supermarket, though he has remained vague on the meaning. Though Costello’s single never charted, it has become one of his most famous tracks and has been covered by numerous other artists.
The Girl – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of the long haired girl on the back cover of ‘Alison’ the records sleeve.
