    • I haven't picked up the magazine yet but these photos look very amateur/strange to me. The one where he's lying on the Smith tomb looks especially ridiculous, it reminds me of a photography student who was lucky enough to get Morrissey as their subject for their first assignment, 'Hey, lets go to a graveyard and I'll get you to pose on a Smiths grave'. What was Morrissey thinking?
      The pictures in Index by Wolfgang were gorgeous.

    What a stupid, dull, idiotic, interview. This is old material rehashed and the interviewer has no business asking questions that have been asked a million times, years ago. I amazed Morrissey even sat for this. Unless, of course, this is an old interview reborn. Most Smith/Moz fans know this stuff already and it is an insult to see it posted here.

    This interview is absolutely splendid. I just returned from Barnes & Noble where I purchased 3 copies, one for me, one for my friend, and one for my sister, all Moz fans. The interviewer really did his/her homework and research. The background information that the interviewer possessed of Morrissey from his early travels in the USA as a lad, to his interest in such bands as the New York Dolls, through his years with The Smiths, his Solo work, the upcoming album, his role as a talent scout for the Attack label, and life in Los Angeles, including whether Moz had received any Movie offers, was thorough creative, and impressive. That Tokion, a dual Japanese & English based language magazine, widely read by Japanese Americans and distributed throughout Japan itself, outdid Index Magazine based in NYC by a country mile is even more striking. The pictures are great. The cover art and inside layout & lettering are fabulous. It's perfect. This is what an interview with Moz should be like. And as for us devotees knowing all of this stuff, well, I learn something new from every Morrissey interview. More importantly, by interviewing with Tokion, those that might never be exposed to Morrissey, become familiar with him. Finally, Morrissey is already popular in Japan, and I am sure his Japanese fans are thrilled.

  • My gods! Morrissey and Evel in the same mag. I must be dreaming! As much as our Moz has created fame that allows him to stand apart from the rest by doing things his way and sacrificing himself in the process, Evel has done the exact same thing - with a motorcycle instead of a microphone.

    Many imitators as well, but there is only one Evel, just as there is only one Moz.

    Morrissey Meltdown
    Published 02 03 04

    Fresh from the instant sell-out of his comeback gig, Morrissey has announced he'll curate this summer's Meltdown festival in London. The annual event has previously been hosted by David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Scott Walker and Lee Perry among others.

    The Smiths frontman will be choosing a line-up of his favourite bands to play on the South Bank from June 11 to June 27, so expect some wilfully obscure selections, to include at least one 60s girl group plus Sandie Shaw.

    He's released a statement saying: "For me this is a privilege and I will rise to it. Meltdown is a great opportunity for me to acknowledge some of the music and words that have excited me over the years. Some of you have ipods, I have Meltdown."

    Last year 6 Music was the festival's media partner, as Lee 'Scratch' Perry invited a diverse selection of reggae bands and techno experimentalists to London. Click here to read reports from Meltdown 2003 and stay tuned to 6 Music for more exclusive news about this year's event.
