Episode 18 – Taking Care of Business – The Elvis Special

by | Jul 4, 2022 | 0 comments

In this episode, El Tele gets some weird earworms, and trails a new book by Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker. He looks forward to a new film starring Vic Reeves, and a new season of Only Murders in the Building. He follows it up with comments on Obi Wan Kenobi, The Lazarus Heist podcast, and New Zealand comedy Nude Tuesday.

Tom Hanks, Austin Butler and cast wowed us both in ‘Elvis’. We digest and dig into the exhibitionism and playfulness of Baz Luhrmann’s cinematic extravaganza. This episode also features The Captain’s ‘Elvis 101’ – the best books, films and albums from the Presley canon, a summary of the essential stuff you really must see and hear. And to close, an original song about Elvis, written by Justine, a former bandmate of El Tele’s.

It’s Alright Presley – © Justine Long, performed by JJ and the Swordfish, 2013.
