Mark Nevin shares the photo from his Facebook artist page:

Here is an old picture from my kitchen in 1991 (around the time we did
Kill Uncle) with Peter Hogg, Kirsty MacColl, me and Morrissey - we
went out to see Suede doing one of their first gigs after this - I
think it was a the White Horse in Camden (maybe not??) - not sure of
the name of the pub - it might be flats now - it was in Camden anyway.​

Thought you might be interested in this picture and its description from Billy Bragg's facebook page.

"I'm quoted in this month's Mojo as saying that, while on tour with the Smiths in Canada in 1985, me and Morrissey went on one of the rides at Kingswood in Toronto wearing Hawaiian shirts and summer shorts. Doubt has been cast on my memory of this event in some quarters and so I have once again plugged in my trusty neg scanner and here we are in 'Canada's Wonderland'. Looks like I was only half right though, as I appear to be wearing a Fats Domino t-shirt and cheap jeans."​

I have never seen this. It might have been on here before, but it is new to me. I didn't know that they made a promo live video to promote the "Rank" album.



Quotes from the information.

"This video of "Ask" (live) was used as promotion for the "Rank" album. The Footage is from the "The Queen Is Dead" tour - while Craig Gannon was with the Smiths".

~ "I have never liked it... I never like any videos & I just feel that if The Smiths could just slide along,,, or had just slid along without ever touching this world, I would have felt incredibly proud.... But I suppose, to the glazed eye, that hasn't happened..... Something precious has been lost and I don't think it was worth losing it, to be quite honest."

Johnny Marr Drops By Amoeba - brokenheartboy

Johnny Marr recently dropped by one of the amazing Amoeba record stores in California and was snagged to do a quick video of what he was purchasing. Pretty cool to hear what the genius is thinking music wise. And no, there is no talk of a Smiths reunion. Sighhhhhhhh. Have a look:​

IN THIS ISSUE

...THE SMITHS: Recorded 25 years ago, The Queen Is Dead is Morrissey and Marr’s masterpiece, its power and arrogance forged on the road in 1985. Martin Aston tells the story of a legendary tour, Jon Savage salutes a band in its prime and a cast of stars praise the album, track by track.

We have just launched a site dedicated to the art piece and wish to find members of the public to share stories of how music made in this part of London affected their lives. Please find attached a press release related to the project. If “Viva Hate” touched any Morrissey fans, we’d love to hear from them! Photos added to Flickr are being gathered in this group.

You can see “Viva Hate’s” cover here.​
