Time for some Elvis links. After all, it’s now or never.
There’s a long and peculiar tradition of exotic Elvis impersonators. Most delightful of all was Tortelvis, the Sikh frontman for the endlessly bizarre Dread Zeppelin. In the early 90s they single-handedly cornered the market in reggae versions of Led Zeppelin songs sung by an Elvis impersonator.
“In the event it turned out to be a fine night and everyone except Frank Skinner turned up, making it the hottest ticket in town.”
Finally, let me point out that I’m not fixated by Elvis. I don’t even own one of his records. But if you can’t get enough, maybe you should Jack Womack’s Elvissey, which features the Church of Elvis and a time-travelling plot to assassinate the King. Not even Tortelvis thought of that one.
