Elvis pumps it up

Deniliquin Pastoral Times

From the moment Elvis Costello (pictured) emerged on stage with his band. The Imposters. to the moment he briskly skipped oft it again, the English rock star treated those in the crowd to a music masterclass.

With superb songs amazingly sung and all merging into each other the Saturday night performance was like a jam session from heaven.

In a tight-fitting suit. the skinny 59-year old looked eerily like his punk-era incarnation, and the edgy 1978 track "Pump It Up" was a fitting kickstarter to a set that flowed like a look-book of Costello's contribution to rock and roll.

The Imposters attacked each song with irreverent energy and and they were often pierced by a melting guitar solo from Costello.

There's no denying keyboardist Steve Nieve was a secret star to the show with his driven organ sound that added much of the colour and drama to Costello's set.

With a back catalogue like a labyrinth, Costello closed his performance with songs spanning either end of his career.

With "Wise Up Ghost" we got a taste from his 2013 collaborative studio album with The Roots before a romp through the 1970s classic "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding?"
