the last book I ever read (Elvis Costello's Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink, excerpt nine)

from Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink by Elvis Costello:

Late at night after the sessions, I listened repeatedly to the newly released All Mod Cons by The Jam. What I felt about it was nothing like rivalry, more just admiration. Paul Weller and I were writing completely different songs, but The Jam’s record was such a big and different step up from their previous release that I was moved to put aside a good song like “Tiny Steps” simply because it owed too much to the music and lyrics of This Year’s Model.
