...with ROCKPILE, a band that featured old pals Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds cranking out the rootsy pub rock. Let's start with "Teacher, Teacher" and "I Knew the Bride," along with this clip of "Heart," featuring Billy Bremner, which is odd at the start.  And here's the band rolling through Lowe's "So It Goes," and "Heart of the City," plus a cover of Elvis Costello's and "Girls Talk," which many associate more with Edmunds.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Pixar's Onward easily tops the chart with 40MM... but that's one of the worst Pixar debuts ever (it's fourth-worst, but two of those are Pixar's first two films, Toy Story and A Bug's Life).  Virus scare, a too-early release, or did people just not see the value in a fantasy-based Pixar flick?  They better hope it's not the first one.  The Invisible Man places with 15.2MM on a 46 percent drop that's pretty good for a horror flick, and excellent for a flick costing 7MM to make.  The Way Back shows with 8.5MM which suggests a wash against a 25MM budget.  Sonic the Hedgehog slides to the fourth slot with 8MM on a 51 percent drop, bearing the brunt of Forward opening. The Call of the Wild rounds out the Top Five with 7MM on a 47 percent drop, continuing to fall way short of where you want a 150MM film to do.
