Costello revives '60s with audience, tunes


Renee C. Jennett

If you thought black high-heeled pumps, shocking-pink mini-skirts, and leopard skin pants had fizzled out with the end of the '60s, you obviously missed the Elvis Costello concert Friday evening at the Ohio Center.

The concert was far more important for its music than for the clothes the audience wore.

Elvis Costello, one of the innovators and leaders of what has been termed "new wave" music, played his heart out for an appreciative audience.

Most impressive about the concert was Elvis Costello's force. BANG! He was on stage. BANG! "Accidents will Happen." BANG! "Green Shirt." Before long, the audience knew Elvis meant to sing as many songs as the two hours, he planned to perform, could hold.

Elvis Costello's voice was in perfect form, although some songs tended to sound flat because there were no background vocals. His voice lends itself to more energetic tunes, it is coarse and emotional, and sounds terrific. "Pump it Up" and "Mystery Dance," for instance, were perfect vehicles for Elvis' voice and his biting sarcasm.
