: "My Aim Is True". I am pretty darn sure the backing band was Huey's "News" (then called the Clovers). I thought I read about them kicking around Europe at the time and landing the gig thru Stiff Records. Not "the Attractions". Elvis Costello and the News as it were.
But the liner notes to the album can be found here:
And a description of the choosing of the band members is included. Steve Nieve was one of them, which makes me think... not, but I could be wrong. Also, one imagines that most of Elvis's backup band would have been British... the News were American, weren't they?
