Elvis Costello Information Continued
Elvis Costello was an early participant in London's pub rock scene in the mid-1970s, and later became associated with the punk rock and new wave musical genres, before establishing himself as a unique and original voice in the 1980s. His output has been wildly diverse: One critic has written that "Costello, the pop encyclopedia, can reinvent the past in his own image".
Elvis Costello was originally marketed as a punk artist. At the time, there was no term to distinguish between punk bands like The Clash and the Sex Pistols from other so-called punk bands like Elvis Costello and Blondie.
While many musicians embrace myriad types of music as influences and preferences, few popular music artists have displayed the same level of determination and rigor in successfully pursuing projects encompassing such a wide stylistic range as Costello. From the Motown and Stax influenced Get Happy!! to the straight country and western of Almost Blue, the mid-1960s Beatles and Beach Boys influenced soundscape of Imperial Bedroom to the chamber music recital of The Juliet Letters, the classic pop of his album with Burt Bacharach and My Flame Burns Blue to the classical ballet score of Il Sogno, eclectic only begins to describe Elvis Costello's ambition and achievement.
