Elbow is still a niche enough band in the US that I'm pleasantly surprised when I encounter the band's music in the wild.

Saturday, that happened twice.

First, during NPR's Weekend Edition, a lit bit of "Dear Friends" was played between story segments in the first hour.

Then, during the Nationals-Giants game Saturday night (an eighteen inning affair in a very chilly Washington, DC), the guitar riff from "Grounds for Divorce" was played on the PA system between innings.

Elbow! In the wild! Smile

I heard Grounds For Divorce at a local football (soccer) tourney a week or so ago. A family friend was playing, and he came over to chat with us during a break in the action. Right in the middle of talking to him I just stopped and listened while it came on over the field speakers. He tried talking again and I yelled at him - "DUDE IT'S ELBOW THEY'RE PLAYING ELBOW HOLY CRAP SHUT UP!" He just looked at me funny and trotted back over to his team bench. Not my fault he's so clueless. Laughing
