Local producer's Elvis Costello tribute album will help tune up school music program By Brittany Woolsey September 10, A Fountain Valley resident combined his love for a particular musician and his connections in the music industry to help young music students.
John Borack said he has been a fan of Elvis Costello since the s, and after one of the rock star's concerts in , he decided it was time to share that passion with the world.
Borack, who has worked in music journalism and plays drums for local band the Popdudes, produced a tribute album to the band Shoes in and a tribute to s and '70s pop music in He and Olivia Frain, a television producer who lives in Florida, teamed to produce "Beyond Belief," which boasts 50 Costello tracks covered by artists who donated their time. Holland's Opus Foundation, which provides musical instruments to grade schools in needy areas. It is named after a film about a high school music teacher who aspires to compose a great piece of music.
A lot of the arts are kind of going away from grade schools, and Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation is a great organization. We expect that many kids will now have access to instruments that wouldn't have without the proceeds from the CD. After earning the rights to Costello's songs and receiving the singer's blessing, Borack and Frain reached out to musicians they had met.
Borack said he and Frain haven't gotten a response from Costello since "Beyond Belief" came out, but they have sent him several copies. Imperial Bedroom continued a direction, starting with Trust , where Costello used a piano to compose songs, which was different from the writing approach he used on his first four albums.
Instead, the band experimented with different instrumental choices, including a piece orchestra for " And in Every Home". Costello also attempted to vary his vocal performances, such as the contrasting vocal tracks in "Pidgin English". Many of these studio embellishments had to be stripped when the songs were played live in concert. Despite some of the lyrical content, Costello had imagined this to be his most optimistic album to date.
This was the first Elvis Costello album to include a transcript of the lyrics. They were printed on the inner sleeve in all capitals with no punctuation. The UK release varied this presentation of the lyrics, such that on one side of the inner sleeve there was a circular cut, which made one side of the LP's centre label visible.
The lyrics, printed on that side of the inner sleeve, continued straight across that side of the LP's centre label. He sees his Alice and falls down the rabbit hole - again. Batfish , Aug 26, Verse 2 I'm just an oily slick In a windup world with a nervous tick In a very fashionable hovel I hang around dying to be tortured You'll never be alone in the bone orchard This battle with the bottle is nothing so novel My take: "Oily slick" offers up so many good options it's difficult to choose just one.
He could literally have slicked-up hair for his big night out, or my choice , it's a somewhat poetic way to see that he sees himself as a scumbag - a greasy huckster trying to get women's attention by any means necessary. The windup world of the nervous tick is another clever double meaning - describing the stress that the clock and the wall creates as closing time draws near, and referring to the mechanical lines that men nervously throw out.
The camera pulls back a bit and we see our hero is in a dive bar - just another drunk. We also get the sense that perhaps some part of him enjoys the humiliation that all his failed romantic efforts bring. And like the character on Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" a man in a "lonely crowd" , our hero is facetiously comforted by the fact that at least he'll have company when he's in the graveyard.
