Attractions Deserved Much More Attention
J. Pizzino | Vista, CA | 08/24/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mad About The Wrong Boy is one of those unknown gems of musical history. It's creative, catchy, and simply a refreshing spin. Too bad more people don' t know about it. This album is definitely on my top 10 favorites of all time!"
An interesting disc from Elvis Costello's backing group
Joseph P. Ulibas | Sacramento, CA, USA | 06/24/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mad About the Wrong Boy was a one shot album from Elvis

Costello's back-up band. It's a pretty good pop album and the songs are short, poppy and peppy. The Attractions (Pete

Thomas, Steve Nieve and Bruce Thomas) perform on all the songs (Bruce Thomas and Steve Nieve share vocal duties).

The band has a cheesy 60's sound to them, they sound out of place in the post-punk English rock era.

Highly recommended."

"Actually, none of the songs on this album were written by Elvis Costello - they were for the most part written by Attractions keyboard player Steve Nieve who used the name Norman Brain. He wrote them in conjunction with his then wife Fay Hart, so the writing credit was Brain & Hart."
