Elvis Costello & The Attractions
Formed 1977. Disbanded 1996
The Attractions were an English backing band for the English new wave musician Elvis Costello between 1978 and 1986, and again from 1994 through 1996. They consisted of Steve Nieve (keyboards), Bruce Thomas (bass guitar), and Pete Thomas (drums). They also released one album (and two associated singles) as an independent entity (i.e., without Costello) in 1980.
