How Elvis Costello Introduced Himself With ‘My Aim Is True’

The unsigned Elvis Costello wasted no time in 1976 when he learned that a buzzy London-based label was looking for new talent. “I was the first songwriter through the door after reading an announcement that Stiff Records was open for business," Costello wrote in his 2015 memoir, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink. He took a sick day from his computer-operator job at Elizabeth Arden and hurried to the label office, where he left a home-recorded demo with the receptionist. She assured Costello that the tape would be auditioned, then returned to him.

45 Years Ago: Elvis Costello Quits Cosmetics Company Job

On July 9, 1977, a little more than a month before his 23rd birthday, Elvis Costello did what many young, aspiring musicians are told not to do: He quit his day job. Costello had worked several odd jobs before he found his big break. After school, he took a job as an Admiralty chart corrector in Liverpool; he then worked in a bank office, where the words on the computer screen were so small that he needed glasses within six months. That job ended when he got into a scuffle with an employee who accused Costello of stealing stamps. "I had my hand around his throat before I knew what I’d done," he wrote in his 2015 autobiography, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink.

When Elvis Costello Looked Inward on ‘Imperial Bedroom’

Elvis Costello once described Imperial Bedroom as his "most optimistic album to date." His seventh studio album and sixth with the Attractions went on to touch topics like cheating spouses ("there's no money-back guarantee on future happiness"), relationships disintegrating into violence ("I can't believe what we've forgotten / and I even slapped your face and made you cry") and general self-condemnation ("Love is always scampering or cowering or fawning / You drink yourself insensitive and hate yourself in the morning").
