“Morrissey: A New Low” - Inner Edge Music
November 8, 2017
Written by Jason Reed


This Sunday marked a new low in the history of Morrissey fandom. And no, I’m not just referring to the temperature.

Eager fans waited with bated breath to see if one of their musical icons would actually show up to the normally idyllic, intimate Vino Robles Ampitheatre in Paso Robles, California (not far away from the memorial of Morrissey’s own idol, Mr. James Dean, who died in a car accident back in 1955). Jokes were aplenty that the acclaimed musician would cancel at the last minute (as he has done many times before), but Morrissey loyalists proclaimed that such cynical forecasting was unfounded. Sadly, it was not. He apparently spent the day in bed. And now that joke isn’t funny anymore....
Jacky Is Only Happy Bundle Tee & 7” Vinyl [Limited Edition PRE-ORDER] - Mporium US

This is available on US Mporium only so far and limited to 500 bundles.
Norman's Records state the record they were selling is ltd edition - that info may have been derived from this offer as the single will be available like the previous release. Unless the colour of the vinyl is ltd which is doubtful. Confusing surrounding a Moz record - there's a novelty!

Mporium have a different release date too:

"Please note this is a LIMITED EDITION PRE-ORDER item, release date is 12/22/17. Your choice of Royal, Navy or Burgundy unisex tee. Only 500 7" vinyl available.

Please note, due to the single release date, we cannot guarantee orders will be shipped or arrive by Christmas."
Morrissey’s 11th solo LP is assured, salacious and not without problems - The Line of Best Fit

"Society’s hell / You need me just like I need ya” Morrissey declares on “My Love I’d Do Anything For You”, the opening salvo from his 11th solo album proper, Low in High School.

By Michael James Hall / 09 NOVEMBER 2017, 12:49 GMT

With chest-bursting drums and a salacious guitar vamp, recalling “Glamorous Glue” from 1992’s Your Arsenal, the record swaggers into life; squalling, savage noise giving way to bold horns and disembodied, disquieting shouts.

While it may be easy to read that quietly smug couplet as a message to wavering fans, this is not a record constructed as any kind of sop to the insanely...

Peace be with you (7/10)
Yeah, well, "World peace is none of your business" was the title of the last Morrissey record, but he probably does not want to believe it. Hardly a person in the proliferating pop world reports so often and vehemently on political, ethical and social issues as the former frontman of the Smiths. He sometimes broke taboos, not quite by chance, of course. His...
Lloyd Cole -
By 'Paulie'.


When I first heard Lloyd Cole and The Commotions sing 'Perfect Skin' I had the same feeling as I got from hearing 'This Charming Man' by The Smiths. "Cheek Bones Like Geometry" - "Sexually Enlightened by Cosmopolitan".
I will go on to touch on this, because for me these lyrics were an education. I hadn't heard of Simone de Beavoir, but after Rattlesnakes I had and I read her books. Just as I read Dorian Gray after my introduction to Oscar Wilde from Morrissey.


"paulie -
I think that's the top answer Lloyd!
I read somewhere that Morrissey was a fan of Yourself & The Commotions - I have to say between you and him I got quite a literary direction...Simone de Beauvoir amongst others from you and Oscar...
Just heard this announced on KCRW. Found this reference...

Morrissey: Israel haters are just ‘jealous’ of the country - The Jewish Chronicle
New Morrissey song 'Israel' openly takes critics of the Jewish state to task - while a second song on his new album makes reference to a Holocaust related theatre production

Pop icon Morrissey has accused those who "rain abuse" on Israel of doing so because they are "jealous" of the country.

In the lyrics of his new song entitled Israel the former Smiths frontman also accuses unnamed enemies of wanting to instil their own “dark sky” on the Jewish state.

The near six-minute long pro-Zionist ballad is the closing track on Morrissey's new album Low In High School.

In typically hard-hitting fashion, the singer, who has regularly performed concerts in Tel Aviv, sings: “In other climes they bitch and whine/Just because you are not like them - Israel, Israel"....
