Nick Lowe rereleases "trilogy" on vinyl, tours North America with full band, audience wonders how Elvis Costello got so handsome all of a sudden

For the first time this millenium, England’s pied pub piper Nick Lowe will drag himself and his rambleshamble backing band (I don’t think they have a proper name, so we’ll just call them the New Lowes) across these United States. What can audiences expect from a pop superbrain who hasn’t tread upon our shores since the burst of the dot-com bubble? Well, I suspect he’ll cull a lot of material from his acclaimed trilogy of albums that started with 1994’s The Impossible Bird, Empire Strikes Backed with 1998’s Dig My Mood, and finished strong with 2001’s charming The Convincer. It just so happens that all three of these albums will be released on vinyl for the first time on September 21 through Yep Roc. You kids still like all them wax stacks, right? Lowe, you silver slicked bastard, you’ve done it again for the first time!
