I just saw this on the TV station Keep It Country. It clearly doesn't keep it all country as on Sunday nights there seems to be a 70s memory lane type show (more like memory alley) and this was on it. Although I think this guy is more like Roy than Jeff, in fact my mum even asked if he was supposed to be impersonating him!
Parthenon Huxley from ELO II and The Orchestra gives one of the songs on his latest album some ELOish production values. Kind of the exception as it's the only one of the 11 songs that sounds this way. but what I really like about this one is that the lyrics describe the songwriting process (does make me wonder if a little microdosing is involved) end result is a song packed full of ELO sounds and secret messages - a real treat
Off We Go
The sidewalk drums beneath my feet it sends a message to me: pay attention to the beat The trees appear to move in time A melody begins ... I am hopeful that it's mine
the words begin to fall in line they start to sing themselves happens to me all the time it's in the air from who knows where
there is no sound, I write it down and OFF we GO ... (begin ELO like violin flourishes)
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
