Noel Gallagher's Greatest Picks - Mojo

The Smiths
Hand In Glove

The Smith's dark, swooning debut single heralded the arrival of the band that would blow the mind of our guest editor when he heard them on the radio at the age of 17.

Mott The Hoople Documentary Due - ClashMusic.com

Excerpt:

Detailing the band's story, the importance of Mott The Hoople within the pantheon of rock music is laid bare. Morrissey volunteered to write the sleevenotes, penning some moving words to his boyhood heroes:

“Savage history always passes judgment in due course, and here we are, in 2011, still studying Mott The Hoople.”

Bringing the band's story back to life, Mott The Hoople are rescued from their place in the history books and given a new relevance by a thoughtful, provocative and enthralling new documentary.

'The Ballad Of Mott The Hoople' is out on October 10th.

Army Navy still battling as an indie with 'The Last Place' - Pop & Hiss, LA Times music blog

Excerpt:

The chance to collaborate with Morrissey isn't an opportunity most young rock musicians would take lightly. Justin Kennedy of the recently reinvigorated Army Navy justifiably jumped at the opportunity. But the band, having just released the vibrant collection of lovelorn-in-Los Angeles power pop that is "The Last Place," didn't gleam much musical knowledge from the dapper chronicler of strained relationships.

Kennedy, after all, pays the bills as a wardrobe stylist. "I dress people for photo shoots or events, or dress actors for red-carpet events," Kennedy said.

While searching Google News under Morrissey, I came across the following headline- but the link is broken:

Sun shines for Morrissey and Visconti
Irish Independent - ‎9 hours ago‎

"Panic on the streets of London/ Panic on the streets of Birmingham," sang Morrissey on the Smiths classic 'Panic'. But while rioting swept the UK last week, I can reveal the Manchester singer was in a Dublin studio working with legendary David Bowie ...

Has anyone read this article before it was removed- and what did it say? Thanks

I figured the producer would be Visconti. Morrissey said that he wanted to work with him again, and Boz recently had that facebook picture with Visconti. It looks like that's who it's going to be.

They were filming a session in Temple Bar (Sun Studios I think) for a new MTV show.
Studio In Session will be shown later this year or early...​
As part of an interview in today's Observer Magazine:

Don't meet your heroes. Having Morrissey on my radio show was an experience - he called me shallow and I told him that he was confusing being shallow with liking life. He's an odd character: the minute I'd play a record he'd be charm personified and when we'd cut back to our interview, he'd turn back into pantomime Morrissey. He still calls me occasionally just to say hello.

I just came across this strange article where Def Leppard's lead singer compares his band with Morrissey. Really bloody strange bit of news, I must say:

Def Leppard Gets No Respect, Says Singer Joe Elliott - TripleM Music

If only his shite band never released any music, there I go again dreaming. What an absolute & utter wanker that nutjob is.

Excerpt:

"We've sold more records than Morrissey and I think I'm a better singer than Morrissey and we think we write better songs than Morrissey yet they'll still think that Morrissey is really cool because he was once in The Smiths.

"I've got nothing against Morrissey, I've got something against the press that think that way."

15. Elvis Costello on Morrissey
“Morrissey writes wonderful song titles, but sadly he often forgets to write the song.”

9. Robert Smith on Morrissey
“If Morrissey says not to eat meat, then I’ll eat meat — that’s how much I hate Morrissey.”

8. Morrissey on Bob Geldof
“Bob Geldof is a nauseating character. Band Aid was the most self-righteous platform ever in the history of popular music.”

3. Morrissey on Brett Anderson
“He’ll never forgive God for not making him Angie Bowie.”
