Costello protests


Dave Jensen

Extract from Dave Jensen's Saturday Spin column:

Elvis Costello told me at Top Of The Pops on Wednesday that people have misunderstood the lyrics to his single "Pills and Soap" — which he released under the alias of The Imposter.

He says: "The title is not about drugs as some people think. The title refers to what we turn animal by-products into."

The song was written after Elvis saw the controversial Channel 4 documentary, Animals.

"It's a protest about Society's misuse of all animals — humans included!"

Although the single is Elvis's most successful for some time, it was deleted last Thursday.
