PopMatters loved Elbow’s latest album, The Seldom Seen Kid, placing it at #9 on our top 60 album list last year. The Manchester band stopped by KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” program last week to chat and play some tunes.

Speaking of steel drums, there’s a ton of them in this live rendition recorded in the middle of a parade/procession in Manchester as the cameraman races to chase them.
