Re: Kingen does Heartbreak Hotel

Swedish performer Kingen Karlsson does his trademarked version of Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel where he sings parts of the song in a megaphone. Taken at the inaugural Logrock festival in Sveg, Sweden. Biggest problem was that I didn't use a flash at this show as I stood just by the band in front row and didn't want to blind them.

Well, for sure Elvis has left the building.

I will imagine that the megaphone is transforming the vocal to that tinny quality heard in The New Vaudeville Band's 1966 rendition of "Winchester Cathedral."

All the angular mic supports are useful counterpoints to both the megaphone's round bell and the random lines of human form, and also effectively set a "performance" scene. I would never mistake this for an emergency announcement -- those guys never close their eyes.

A trim off the bottom just above the red patch would nicely neaten up the crop .
