The origins of The Imposters can be traced back to the band, The Attractions. The Attractions were a backing band for Elvis Costello between 1978 and 1986. The band united again with Costello from 1994 to 1996. The group consisted of Steve Nieve on keyboards, Pete Thomas on drums and Bruce Thomas as the bassist. All the members belonged to different cities; Pete Thomas was from Sheffield, Bruce Thomas belonged to the market town Stockton-On-Tees and Steve Nieve hailed from London.
Steve Nieve was born with the birth name Steve Nason and was just nineteen years old when he became a member of The Attractions. He was a talented individual who had received classical training but hadn't been part of any band before. Bruce Thomas was twenty nine years old when he joined The Attractions, which made him the oldest member of the group. He also had the most professional experience, being part of bands “Quiver” and “Moonrider.”
With Quiver, Thomas had been a part of two albums and even played with the group for The Sutherland Brothers. In 1975 he was part of Moonrider's lone album which was released in 1975. Pete Thomas, who was almost equal in age to Costello, was a band member of the Chilli Willi and the Red Hot Peppers, prior to joining the band. From 1994 to 1996, the band worked with Costello on two albums “Brutal Youth” and “All This Useless Beauty.”
The first single on which The Attractions worked with Costello was "(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea," released in March 1978. That marked the start of a steady partnership, with the band providing music for all of Costello's singles and albums till 1984. During this time there was only one single that Costello recorded without the band and that was titled "New Amsterdam."
However differences between Bruce Thomas and Costello meant that Bruce would part ways with The Attractions. The vacant place of the bassist was filled by Davey Faragher. As a result a new band with Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher came into being, known as The Imposters. The Imposters have worked with Costello on several albums; the first one released in 2002 was titled “When I Was Cruel.” It was followed by three consecutive albums in 2004, 2005 and 2006. “The Delivery Man” was the first of the three and it was followed by “Club Date: Live In Memphis” and “The River In Reverse.” The fifth album on which Costello and the band worked together was “Momofuku,” released in 2008.
Nieve and Thomas who have been part of Costello's bands for nearly twenty years now have developed a strong friendship and a deep chemistry as well. Nieve has certainly grown as a solo artist along the way. He has worked on a music-theater project and has provided the background score for the film “The Turning.”
Apart from that Nieve also released an album in 2013 by the name of “ToGetHer.” It was a unique record that featured fourteen different vocalists including Laurie Anderson, Sting, Joe Sumner and of course Elvis Costello.
They are now about to hit the road together for another one of their trademark tours. Get The Imposters tickets and watch these talented musicians play with Elvis Costello as part of a series of unforgettable concerts, live.
