This just announced on the Kevin and Bean show on KROQ (Los Angeles radio), Morrissey will be a guest on the show tomorrow - Friday, March 26. They mentioned they were trying to set up a phone-in interview from the UK earlier but now will actually have him in studio.

Sorry about the earlier false start. I'll try to record it for download but may need some mirror sites to handle the load.

    Things are going too well. When will he sabotage everything and go into hiding?

    Or, perhaps, maybe he really is more comfortable in his skin these days. Maybe he'll keep working to reach a wider audience and astonish us all.

Maybe they can do that when he actually begins the tour. Have a little soy egg, maybe a tofu bacon, then slap a stack of 'cakes...I'll be allright. Whatever happens, they gotta take care of the phones if they take calls.

Does this guy honestly know moz's feelings regarding his own fans? Apparently not, they all speculated that Moz is intimidated by us and our devotion to him. And why does KROQ, pronounced crock, invite listeners to hear IBEH when they dont even play the song? I have been trying to win tix and listening every hour and they dont even play it.

    No, not sour grapes, I won tix to the Cure before and am buying tix for at least two wiltern shows. I will revert back to Indie 103.1 after the interview Fri morning.

  • He's on! And sounds great.

    They prefaced his entrance with "Suedehead."

    Sorry Brits. He said he's happy in Los Angeles and no longer owns property in the UK!

    I still love you though. I'm not gloating. Just reporting.


    His favorite TV program are Roseanne reruns! Because it's on 6 times a day. Holy crap.

    I love that show.

    He does mean "quarry" in the sense of a victim or person being chased...

    a person he wants to catch up to because he has something to say to them.

    Commercial break right now, but here are some other tidbits.

    He said he's been dancing and singing around the house since he was 6 years old and he can remember the first song he wrote. Kevin and Bean asked if it was "utter crap," and he said it was close, but couldn't give any details.

    The same show all five nights? He says no -- even if he plays the same song...

    due to audience participation. He says he, at least, is never bored.

    He says he will play most of the new songs!

    A fan just called (named Alan) and asked what he thought of people leaving stuff at his house.

    Guess what all you people who love calling these people "stalkers"? He doesn't really mind it. He says most people are very nice and the ones that are horrible are in the minority and they come and go.

    He sounds splendid! Also, they asked the infamous "Latino fan" question.

    He says he has no answer and he's thankful that anyone likes him.

    He also says that he thinks he attracts passionate fans because they pick up on the fact that he's a passionate person. He gets the audience he speaks to.

    He says people are terribly nice to him wherever he goes. He also thinks the music scene in Britain is getting better. It's more "exuberant." He no longer thinks the England he knew is dead.

    He isn't that interested in The Darkness. It's not his "bag," but he has no problem with them.


    They just called a fan (Georgina) to let her know she'd won a trip to see Moz in Manchester.

    She was at work and thus couldn't act very excited. (Like that would stop me!)

    When asked what she had to say to Morrissey since he was on the phone, she was like, "He is? Really? I can't wait to see you!"

    Commercial break: But before that, they asked what he had to say about "Irish Blood, English Heart."

    He said it was a "great song." Kevin and Bean asked if he didn't have anything else to say since he wrote the thing after all. They said that they expected him to have more of a perspective on it since they could have told him it was a great song!

    They're gonna play it after the break.


    Hints about the rest of the material? "It's all very strong. It's all very powerful."

    He says it's his "strongest, most resolute album," his "best album." He says it's the best of him, it brings out the best of him -- his best writing, best production, best everything. He's very happy at Sanctuary. Very contented.

    A caller (Veronica) asked about the Sweet and Tender Hooligans.

    He's seen them on VHS and not live. He calls them impressive!

    Another fan asks him which has been a bigger influence: England or L.A.? He admits that England may be more of an influence but also says it would matter where he is beca

  • The Morrissey interview has ended. I must say, it went over well. Everyone was very respectful in spite of their lack of knowledge of one another. Kevin and Bean have always wanted him to come in for an interview and finally Morrissey has graced them, they didn't even know how to react. I noted them as totally astonished to have him; almost fans...just kinda, overwhelmed that Morrissey was in front of their face. Very interesting.

    I'm honored to be a Morrissey fan right now. Morrissey never makes an ass or fool of himself - he always makes me proud. I'm glad to know that I can still hold him to the high standards I did when I was 15. He never lets me down. I feel like I did in 97 again...he's back and excited to be where he is. When he's happy, we're happy (we get a new album). Another album. Another tour another card maxed.

    "And if I seem a little strange, well, that's because I am."
  • Thanks for the rundown. I managed to hear about 80% of the interview, and it was fairly interesting in places for a change. I do however wish that more aspects of the album were discussed rather than "trivial" (for lack of a better word) things such as Morrissey living in Los Angeles.

    I mean, GQ and Tokion have run similar grounds, and I would have thought a radio program (for some of you, even KROQ) would have bothered to already know the tracklist and perhaps engage Morrissey in discussing some of the songs.

    I realize part of the 'mystique' lies in Morrissey being somewhat reserved about the meaning of his songs, but it would have made the interview more worthwhile. Aside from certain things mentioned (Roseanne, so on), they could have just played soundbytes from a previous Morrissey interview, really.

    As for Irish Blood English Heart, I was under the impression they were going to play something *else* from the album when they first talked about it during the radio program, and I have to say I was disappointed when it was indeed the same song they played on the 'premiere'. Having heard it again, the final version of this song isn't as bad as I initially encountered it to be, but for some reason Morrissey's vocals sound like they've had a bit more 'reverb' than necessary. I don't know, but that's my take. It's still a good song, though, and a decent way to get back into the arena of today's music.

    But all griping aside, at least they're interviewing Morrissey and not someone from Linkin Park. I just wish they had better topics to ruminate about given that they knew who the guest was.

    However, I'm really frustrated.....I wish I had a chance to call in and ask why the hell he's not doing any shows in the Bay Area (I confirmed the other night that he's NOT doing any dates here EXCEPT when he headlines Lollapalooza-I hope I'm proven wrong though!)....unfortunately I'm not in a position to jump down to LA to see him, since I'm going to Coachella the following weekend, and that's costing me some cash as it is. 6 nights in the LA area? come ON! a bit excessive? (except of course to those who live there) grrr....

Isn't it amazing to have him being absolutely funny, witty, sarcastic, the wonderful popstar he really is. I am so tired of hearing all the bitching. Enjoy it people!

    Kevin and Bean sound awful...

    Is there no one in journalism who can put together a meaningful interview with Morrissey?

    "Is your songwriting different now that you live in LA?" is perhaps the dumbest question Morrissey has ever been asked. "Are The Smiths getting back together," is more intelligent than the first question.

    What should I expect the average listener of "Kevin and Bean" to come up with, however...
