A new collection of poems from 2017 to 2020 entitled Complete & Utter Cult! has just been published in December 2020 by Burning Eye Books who also published Viva Loch Lomond!, a collection of Elvis’s poems from 2003 to 2017. Both books are annotated throughout with the innermost thoughts from the canyons of Elvis’s mind as he banged away on his typewriter at The Graceland Caravan Park and for those who don’t like words there are some wonderful illustrations by Tony Kerins - www.tonykerins.com Copies are available for £10 each plus p&p directly from Elvis or from the publishers, all good bookshops and at gigs as well as from tax-avoiding online corporate behemoth retailers.

Elvis McGonagall knitted dolls are handmade from 100% Shetland wool by his Auntie Morag in her Pitlochry nursing home. Usually available within five years of ordering. Contact Elvis if you’d like one - urgently - we don’t know how many more she has in her - or visit the Promised Land Inconvenience Store at the Graceland Caravan Park and have a rummage in the bargain bin.
