Never mind punk — here's music


Robert Levers

By now you've probably heard the news that rock and roll has withstood the punk onslaught in the form of Elvis Costello, a former computer programmer from England. Elvis has done his homework, calling elements from both the fifties and sixties, with obvious debts to the seventies' Bruce Springsteen and Graham Parker. It's refreshing to hear rock which doesn't continually resort to predictable chord changes. Amusing, too, is his off-beat lyrics, "if the man with the ticker tape tries to take it... blame it on the Cain," and Song titles, "(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes." He definitely brings back a blend of humor and tragedy to rock and roll.
