I've got Elvis Costello's Brutal Youth (1994) on loop today. It's kind of like his When I Was Cruel (2002) with extra quirk. Sulky Girl, You Tripped at Every Step, This is Hell, Kinder Murder and 20% Amnesia are magic, and nothing is crap. Amazing stuff. I really have no idea what he was thinking when he made North.
