Elvis Costello And The Attractions - Armed Forces FLAC album

Today I look at Elvis Costello and his band The Attractions 1979 album Armed Forces which contains classic songs Olivers Army and Accidencts Will Happen.

Original UK Pressing on Radarscope Records.

Armed Forces is the third studio album by British musician Elvis Costello, released in the UK by Radar Records and in the US by Columbia in 1979. The album had the working title Emotional Fascism.

After releasing and touring the intense This Year's Model, Elvis Costello quickly returned to the studio with the Attractions to record his third album, Armed Forces. In contrast to the stripped-down pop and rock of his first two albums, Armed Forces boasted a detailed and textured pop production, but it was hardly lavish. Perversely, while the sound of Costello's music.

The third album by Jack and Meg White was the right dynamite for a mainstream breakthrough. Jack’s Delta-roadhouse fantasies, Detroit-garage-rock razzle and busted-love lyricism, as well as Meg’s toy-thunder drumming all peaked at once. 496. Boz Scaggs, ‘Boz Scaggs’. Elvis Costello and the Attractions, ‘Armed Forces’. Costello‘s third album is all tightly wound paranoia. The concept is personal politics; the original title was Emotional Fascism, and one song is called Two Little Hitlers. The keyboard-driven sound of Accidents Will Happen helped define New Wave.

Though Armed Forces is in many ways the most conceptually aggressive and confrontational of Costello's first three records, it doesn't carry with it the same immediacy of his first two releases, 1977's My Aim Is True and 1978's This Year's Model, on which he came as a man with something to prove. There's something intensely subversive about My Aim Is True with its undercurrents of anger and frustration providing a foundation for his synthesis of pop melody, country twang, and punk energy.
