Christchurch artist switches attention from superheroes to The Smiths - Stuff.co.nz

Excerpt:

Christchurch designer and artist Mark Catley describes it as a labour of love, but The Smiths: The Art Of…. is far more that an exhibition of albums and singles posters from the highly-esteemed 1980s Manchester band.

Morrissey WON'T feature on the next album.

Excerpt:

Nicky always said he wants Morrissey in to do a vocal but is too afraid to ask because he couldn't take the rejection…

He continued, "But he wouldn't. We agreed when we split up, in Bloom's Hotel, Dublin, 1988, that we would never reform. Five years ago we all had lunch together and reiterated that fact, with the caveat that we would only consider reforming if the Smiths reformed, which will only happen when the royal family abdicates."

He then continued to say that "everything about reforming" turns him off, "apart from travelling around in a bus...

Just driven up from down South and on the way listened to this fascinating documentary on shyness. Talks about a lot of interesting historical figures, but also some more modern ones, and their struggle with shyness, including L.S Lowry, George Best, Bobby Charlton and Morrissey. Really good listen. Moz section begins at 49m 38s.
