Pop's her uncle

Tonight I learned a cool bit of trivia: My friend Kristine Steakley, an author-to-be who blogs at Child of Divorce/Child of God, is the niece of Brad Elvis of fine power-pop Beatlemaniacs the Elvis Brothers, who currently is the touring drummer for the Romantics.

I remember introducing this 1992 Elvis Brothers video when I was a VJ on Manhattan Cable's "Videowave" — and it's the perfect follow-up to the Aysides video two entries down.
