AMSTERDAM — Dutch record company Dureco is launching a big campaign on behalf of UK new wave label Stiff under the banner "Great Stuff On Stiff," also the title of a live album featuring Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Ian Dury, Wreckless Eric and Dave Edmunds.
The album was recorded at the London Lyceum in October last year when the show was also filmed for a 50-manute documentary which will be transmitted here.
Dury gives his first Dutch concerts March 3-5 and his appearance at the Amsterdam Paradiso will he taped by VPRO Radio. Release of Wreckless Eric's debut album is lined up for the second week of March, the first 2,000 copies pressed on brown vinyl.
During the campaign Elvis Costello's debut album My Aim Is True will be re-released, as well as the two Damned albums Neal, Neat, Neat and Music For Pleasure and the sampler LPs Hits Greatest Stiffs and A Great Bunch Of Stiff.
