Elvis Costello

My Aim Is True

New Wave Post Punk When MY AIM IS TRUE was released in 1977 no one knew that the character on the cover with cokebottle glasses illfitting clothes and Jerry Lewis posture would become a popculture icon Elvis Costello arrived as the ubergeek hellbent on blowing away years of macho rock posturing with his revengeofthenerds image and sharp snappy sound instantly defining New Wave In retrospect the songswith echoes of everything from the Band Blame It on Cain to the Byrds The Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoesowed more to rootsy pubrock than it did to punk but it was still miles beyond the hairychested bluesrock theatrics bogging down the airwaves in the mid'70s
