Bruce is best known as Elvis Costello’s bassist for his first on about a dozen albums as The Attractions, but he’s been in bands since 1970 and has done numerous session gigs.
We discuss his work on “Blood Makes Noise” by Susanne Vega from 99.9 Degrees (1992), play clips from several of the most famous Attractions tunes plus “La La La La Loved You” by The Attractions from Mad About the Wrong Boy (1980), the first half of the title track of Quiver’s Gone in the Morning (1972), and we conclude by listening to “There’s a Place” by Spencer Brown and Bruce Thomas from Back to the Start (2018). Intro: “Radio Radio” by The Attractions feat. Fito Paez from Spanish Model (2021). For more info, see brucethomas.co.uk.
