XTC, featuring Andy Partridge.

Few bands can match XTC’s accomplishments as far as writing/performing memorably quirky, intellectual, and, yes, catchy songs. Lead vocalist Andy Partridge provides the oddball genius charisma to generate a potent cocktail of aural nirvana.

Most of these are live performances, with the Rockpalast Senses being fairly rare.

The Elvis Costello.

Elvis Costello III

{Revised: 7/6/2019}

“Bowing, and squawking, Running after tidbits; Bopping and squinting, Just like a nitwit…”

Mr. Elvis Costello: One of the very greatest, most idiosyncratic performers and composers. Of this, or any, century/epoch. We will not see his likes again.

The great man, pictured also with lyricist and co-composer Bernie Taupin. Elton John has amassed 27 Top 10 U.S. singles, but more than that, even, he is simply an electrifying performer, as these videos amply demonstrate.

The supremely talented, somewhat offbeat {esp. back in the day…} whistling mΓ¦stro, composer, and vocalist Roger Whittaker is herein featured. Equipped with a manly baritone not unlike burnished mahogany, the man can just plain deliver the goods (his nonpareil winning ways being what they are). A true original. ∎.
