ELVIS COSTELLO 13 Steps Lead Down (3:13)
PRODUCERS: Mitchell Froom, Elvis Costello
WRITER: MacManus
PUBLISHER: Plangent Visions, ASCAP
Warner Bros 18214 (cassette single)

From the tin-pot snare attack and talking keyboard to the ferocious vocal verve of Costello, this wonderful track announces with full-face snarl that Elvis & the Attractions are back on the block, rocking like a house on fire. Great fun, with a difficult-to-forget groove, and a fine initiation to Costello’s “Brutal Youth” album. Unreleased bonus track “A Drunken Man’s Praise of Sobriety,” a tiny theatre piece for hard-core fans, is W.B. Yeats’ wry outburst as interpreted by El.
