Elvis Costello

Still, it's too bad his new backing band couldn't come to town with him. Sure, it was only a one-off gig, but seeing Costello perform "Radio, Radio" with the Beastie Boys filling in as the Attractions on Saturday Night Live came close to capturing the thrill of the first time he performed that song on the show in 1977, after stopping "Less Than Zero" almost as soon as he'd started it. Adam Horowitz seemed to take special pleasure in re-creating the role created by Nieve (and who wouldn't?), bouncing behind his keyboard while he tapped out the song's signature riff. Costello was a little thicker around the middle, and the song probably didn't mean as much to him now as it did then, but he looked just as happy as Horowitz as they banged out a version somehow scrappier than the original. It doesn't hurt to be reminded every once in a while that that part of him is still around. image
