Gary Day and Spike T. Smith join New York Dolls in Blackpool

Kewpie sends the link to the post in the forums by King Leer (via Morrissey reddit):

Gary Day and Spike T. Smith join New York Dolls in Blackpool

I happened to check out Gaz' Myspace page and he mentioned that he'd playing with the Dolls at Blackpool's Rebellion Festivals this past weekend.

Seems like it was a hit, and Gary looks well. One-time Morrissey drummer Spike T. Smith joined, too.

Wonder if Sylvain's request came about through a Moz recommendation.

Didn't post the picture directly in the forum as it's All Rights Reserved on flickr but you can see it here:

Johnny Marr pens TV theme tune for "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margret"
posted by davidt on Thursday August 12 2010, @10:00AM

Famous when dead writes:
Quoted from BBC 'Teletext' Entertainment pages:

"Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr has written a theme tune for a new Channel 4 sitcom.
The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margret stars David Cross as an American office temp who manages to bluff his way into a senior role.
Marr has been a member of both US band Modest Mouse and The
Cribs in recent years.
It is his first TV composition, but he did write some of the soundtrack to the hit film Inception."

Heaven Malone writes:
Tired of not being able to go anywhere in the Chicago area to enjoy The beautiful sounds of The Smiths and Morrissey? Vocalist, Joseph De La Mora and his band, Terraforma, decided to give it a shot in 2008. Originally just for an ICON show with other bands paying tribute to the likes of Depeche Mode, The Cure, and Joy Division. The Chance to emulate the Smiths and Moz was just too addictive and honorable to only do just once. Thus The Handsome Devilz were born.

"Everyday Is Like Sunday" re-release details (UK, Sep. 27)
posted by davidt on Sunday August 08 2010, @02:00AM

Stefan Krix writes (also posted in the forums):
While looking for Morrissey related news on the Bona Drag reissue, I found the following entry on the EMI Music UK and Ireland site; it seems to be that EMI plans a bundled re-release of the 1988 single "Everyday Is Like Sunday" on CD and 2-7".

Though the track is originally taken from Viva Hate but it's also on Bona Drag - so it might be intended as a single to promote the 20th Anniversary edition. Note the cat.-nos.: MM seems to be an indication for the Mayor Minor label!

The release date in the UK is the same as for the Bona Drag longplayer...

Release Date: 27/09/2010

CD
Everyday is Like Sunday (2010 Remaster)
November The Second
Everyday is Like Sunday
Everyday is Like Sunday (TOTP 9th June 1988)

"Toi, Moi, et Morrissey" : French novel (Sep. 6, 2010)
posted by davidt on Sunday August 08 2010, @02:00AM

Guillaume METAYER writes:
Hello,
Just saw that on a website.

"Toi, Moi, et Morrissey" (written by French author Arnaud Huber) is a novel which poses questions to the reader on the complex relations between art in general, music and Morrissey in particular

To know more about it or/and to order the book, click here.

Here is my English translation (hope it is ok):

« "Toi, Moi, et Morrissey" is a text written with two points of view which intertwine, overlay, and come together as one at the end. The first voice is that of the narrator, in attendance at his first Morrissey concert, the Eurokéennes at Belfort-- just before the transmission of the World Cup quarter final match between France and Brazil. The second one, which speaks in the past tense, is the voice of his memory which questions the means of such a profound personal quest, emotional and musical, in order to understand how, even through as a young man he misinterpreted the overarching ideas which run through the music of Moz, he still, in short-lived sentimental encounters, finished by becoming a "fan of Morrissey."

"Toi, Moi, et Morrissey" is a novel which poses questions to the reader on the complex relations between art in general and music in particular, and how they maintain our existence, in such a way that music governs our memory and constructs our present, that the sound-track of our life can influence us at the deepest level of our subconscious.

Arnaud Huber has installed his idiosyncratic word sense and his love of music at the heart of his first book. He is 36 and lives in Lorraine. »
