The D-V-8's was my band , fronted from behind a Pedal Steel Guitar. I wrote the tunes, played Pedal and lap Steels and sang . Jim Clatterbuck Drummed.
Doug Corbin Bassed. Jon Vengrouskie Guitarred, but all guitaristic sounds on "Elvis" are Pedal Steel. Jimmy Powers played the Harmonica solo.

We had our 5 minutes of "fame" on the Dr. Demento show back in the mid '80's. But when you are up against Wierd Al, well... Acordian trumps Pedal Steel any day.
  • "Mail myself to Elvis" was written in tribute to a couple of gals who tried to parcel post themselves to Graceland. After the King passed away I figured the postage would be somewhat steeper to get where he is now.... Basically a "list song" of ways to do away with oneself - dva (zbcustom73)
