The somber trombone was played by Jim Paterson
of Dexys Midnight Runners. After leaving Dexys for a time in 1982, Paterson co-founded TKO Horns who performed on a regular basis with Costello. Speaking with Dexys Unofficially about working with the English singer-songwriter, Paterson said: "Well apparently he didn't really like us. I don't think he realized we didn't have a 'session player' attitude."
"I actually loved playing for him and I thought we got on OK," he added. "The two month tour of America was a brilliant experience for me so I have to say I enjoyed working with him."
