  • Local Hero (Score:2, Interesting)

    Hello Weatherfield, I am a local boy made … bad.

    And now a little history lesson. I worked in that building over there for 2 months. I’m glad I left.

    He then told a story about how he still he still had a ticket from 1972 for a New York Dolls concert that should have taken place in the old Hard Rock that is now a B&Q. But their drummer died.

    I’m off to the Quadrant (pub close to his old home) – No I’m never off to the quadrant.

    Thank-you Manchester – so much to answer for.

    (Paraphrasing) Will you permit me one last history lesson. I used to go to St Mary’s School, which they had to close down. Thank God the Headmaster is dead and the teachers were all charged with cruelty to children and I am the only survivor left to tell the tale & here is that sad tale…..(Headmaster Ritual)

    God Bless Oscar Wilde, God Bless You All, God Bless Stretford – oh now I’ve gone too far.

    Moz on excellent form - really enjoyed himself. It seemed really personal to be playing yards from his old home, to have the New York Dolls fulfill their cancelled data from 32 years ago etc, to tell lots of local stories.

    Great sound & voice. Set-list identical except for a James Maker song.

    Just got back from Move. Mozzer & the lads put in a decent performance - it was by far the best gig I've seen him play. Set started with Don't make fun of Daddys Voice - which sounded much better than at MEN. In fact the atmosphere was much better than at MEN.
    The set list was similar to MEN, but ordered differently - much better. He didn't do shoplifters, but did rubber ring, headmaster.., there is a light, shakespears sister.
    Moz mentioned that tonights gig would be Barrys last with the band - does this mean that Alan's actually coming back?
    He was on fine form - shirt came off twice despite the chilly breeze. The second it came off he gave it a good rub down his pants before tossing it into the crowd - errgh!

    Moz kept giving the croud 'history lessons' - refering to his past in Stretford. He actually said that he'd spent two months working at the Cricket ground & pointed up towards an office. Moz gave three history lessons in all. The first about his job at the cricket ground, the second about the Stretford B&Q - Apparently it used to be the site of a rock club in the 70's & the dolls were supposed to have played there in Nov 1972 - but never made it because there drummer had died. The third lesson was about his old school "shutdown now because it was unsafe". He said that the headmaster was dead now, which made the croud cheer - at which the band burst into the opening chords of Headmaster Ritual.

  • Another awesome performance by the man and the lads.

    He said that it was Little Barry's last show with them, so Alain will be back for Reading/Leeds I'd imagine. Or he's decided not to bother going at all.

    As has been said he looked to be really enjoying himself, being back home.

    There Is A Light swapped places with IBEH in the set-list, otherwise the same. The James Maker song someone above mentioned was, obviously, just No One Can Hold A Candle To You rather than anything different.

    And hello to Michelle from near Chicago. And hello to the three women who recognised me from S&G on Friday.

    Oh, and a big FUCK YOU to the pissed Manc who pushed up to the front just behind where I was, then spent the next hour singing the wrong lyics (not just wrong for what was being sung - but from different songs!!) and complaining that there were too many people at the front.

    Brilliant night all the same though.

  • i thought the reception for the dolls was dismal, especially the numbskuls who were shouting for morrissey without even knowing or caring that this was a band he loved so much.
    in fact there was lots of pre performance meathead behavior, which strangely died out when mozza came on stage, istead of translating itself into an energetic front row - (according to a few of people i was with) - the rowdy part of the crowd retreted about 15 rows back and really made tits out of themselves jostling people who were quite happy to be left alone, pretty weak.
    the net result of this being that the atmosphere at the front of the gig was very muted. i guess the people who were upset with the lively manchester gig will have enjoyed tonight - i did too - but in a different way. mozza seemed far more at home - but the mood was nowhere near as electric.
    still a classic mozza gig - great to see him almost literally on his home turf !

  • Candy! (Score:2, Informative)

    I just got home and I'm a bit woozy after surviving the day on a single slice of toast, but anyway...

    Wonderful show. Morrissey seemed very pleased to be back home, and was very chatty. He was very active on stage, crouching down and mugging for the cameras. At one point he looked at the giant projection screen and said, "Is that me? Oh, goodbye!" And he didn't respond to the chants of "Steven" from some of the locals--old neighbours maybe?

    No flower this time, but he threw a Smiths-style beaded necklace at the start of the show. And several times he threw handfuls of candy from his pocket! Security were in charge of who got the prizes, though, picking up the shirts and giving them to who they wanted. The last shirt was a prize--before he threw it, he wiped his chest (and uh, "other places") with it. Not bad!

    It seemed like quite a few people were pulled out by security, especially in the first twenty minutes or so. I was clinging to the barrier (right in front of Moz!), and I had two people pulled out over my head. The crowd around me seemed good though, not too much pushing and elbowing.

    And the New York Dolls were fantastic! Great night.

  • and it was...

    the beer token system may have been a good and secure way of handing the bar services - but that was the most expensive ale in the north of England - I spent more last night than on six months electricity bills.

    And here's one for the fans that write in with sinister Morrissey stalker trivia ( 'saw him in Gucci - paid by credit card - had a plaster on little finger left hand etc...' ) - closer examination of the lighter coloured shirt that he threw into the crowd reveals that he HAS changed his aftershaver since 2002 and SHOCK HORROR! this was not a brand new shirt - he had left the drycleaning label on it, for some reason in the name 'Helle"

    Arre there hard times at Casa Moz - or just more evidence of his well doccumented thrift?

  • In my opinion I think singing Irish Blood, English Heart as an encore is a bit of a let down. Most people in the audience aren't able to sing a long with it like they do with songs such as There Is A kind of deflated the ending, which was sad.

    However, all in all it was a good performance from Morissey, far better than Glastonbury. Morrissey was his witty self when speaking to us.

  • Most acts were on 20 minutes after the first one but Morrissey came on after an hour and it was freezing. I think he likes to educate our musical minds by playing his kind of music first (Jobriath, Nancy, Pony Club etc) least it was better than the music that got played to us before the New York Dolls on that Move screen. Never have I seen a festive lineup with artists like Morrissey on it having their names shown with rap music. But that's Virgin (festive organisers) for you.

  • Good performance and Moz was on top form but I dont think one hour 15 mins is long enough for a headline act at a festival.

    17 songs against the 19 he did at the M.E.N gig which to me had much more atmosphere. Open air festival style gigs just dont do it for me. Blackburn 2002 was my best ever Moz gig because it was so intimate. Hopefully he will tour later this year in the smaller venues. Some people near me were shouting him down all the way through. I cant understand why they go in the first place if they dont like him.

    only 3 songs from his solo back catelogue with 8 from the new album.

    I dont expect him to change his setlist dramatically but i think an hour and a half should be the minimum time.

    Should be used to it by now though!

  • I'm not sure that things like this happen in real life but......

    Were you the nice looking female at Old Trafford yesterday wearing a green Kill Uncle T-shirt, black cardigan and small illustrated hand-bag?

    You were sitting directly opposite the stage eating an ice-cream but ran into the crowd during the New York Dolls' set, just before this intrigued male had chance to talk to you.

    On the understanding that life isn't over-generous with second chances (but that fate moves in mysterious ways), if by some miracle you're reading this now, why not drop me a line & introduce yourself?

  • Morrissey is on the front page of The Manchester Evening News (final edition); its about half page. And there are some remarks there concerning what he said the introduction to Headmaster's Ritual. By the way he also mentioned the Headmaster by name and said that he is happy that he is dead (or something to that effect).

  • No thread yet, and I'm an impatient bastard, so I'll post this here and probably write again when the thread appears.

    I'm not overly enamoured of the YATQ album, but I was most pleasantly surprised by the single I bought today. Here's my assessment of it:

    1. First Of The Gang - a corking pop song. The best track on Quarry by a long chalk.

    2. 'My Life Is A Succession...' - this is LOVELY. Why was this not on the album? I really like it - it has some beautiful textured acoustic playing which is apparent in the mix. Jerry Finn produced this one well. Beautiful, evocative harp playing from Alain (presumably) and even the synthesised strings work well cos they're unobtrusive and used very tastefully. This is the proof that the notion of Moz as "alternative Sinatra" isn't so far-fetched. The track has a nostalgic feel that suits the resigned, regretful lyrics. No court cases mentioned! I really like this one - it's better than 5 or so of the album tracks!!

    3. 'Teenage Dad' - a pity this and 'Mexico' are only available on DVD format. This one starts off with some plodding music but builds up nicely and has some good guitar fills from Alain. Lyrically, I thought this was very good indeed - Moz's wit and insight are on display, particularly the lines about being forced into marriage by society, opening the newspaper but finding no news and being jealous of the teenade dad "with his methodone". Lyrically, this is what I want from him - good stuff.

    4. Mexico - the weakest of the three b-sides, but still better than 'All The Lazy Dykes'.

    I've been a bit down on Quarry itself and I still think it's a bit mediocre overall, but I'm impressed with two of the b-sides here ('Succession' is just lovely and I like Teenage Dad lyrically) and 'First Of The Gang' is a great pop anthem anyway. Roll on the next album, where Moz does a whole LPs work of songs like this - no court cases, just insight, poignancy and beauty.

  • How about this for a conspiracy theory:

    1. Barrie is leaving. No mention was made of whether Alain will be back or not which is unusual to say the least, as he has been working with Moz for so long.

    2. He sang the end of 'TIALTNGO'. Which as far as I know he has never done over his solo years. I know he used to with The Smiths, but as soon as he went solo he always left it out. Why? Because the light HAD gone out. As with 'I wont share you', 'TIALTNGO' can be easily applied to the Marr-situation.
    Additionally, he commented before the song that it had been written in 'a lot of pain', and words to the effect that this pain was now a thing of the past.

    3. What we are left with is at the very least a Morrissey who has finally banished at least one of the major ghosts in his past.
    And who knows, at best what we may be left with is a vacant guitarist position and the biggest possible hint that Marr is about to fill it.

  • I went to MEN and Old Trafford and can say i preferred Old trafford cos i wasn't 5 miles from the stage!! I also believed that Mozzer was charged by 1)playing in his back garden and 2)Coming on after the dolls.

    It appears some of you are upset with Mozzers set (length and content). So what would you have him play. Stick to the current format ie. 20 songs (5 smiths max)

    Mine would be (in no particular order except encore):

    I will allow 1 cover seeing as it is Morrissey!


    The Queen is Dead

    No doubt there will be a fair bit of disapproval - hopefully some approval, i'm just interested in what people think.

  • Few more Moz quotes from the evening:-

    M: "Anything we can do for you?"
    Someone in crowd: "Take your shirt off"
    M: "Do you know how old I am? Im old enough to be your... Postman"

    M: "Julia, what do we do next?- Why is it always down to me?"

    M: "That was from our album You Are The Quarry- which is coughing its way back up the charts"

    M: "Twenty on one- it takes 20 of them to stop one man. (shakes head) Thanks for trying. (Comment as security jump heavily on one guy trying to make it on stage)

  • Slightly off-topic, but can anyone tell me which of the original Dolls were in the lineup who played at Old Trafford on Sunday? I thought they were fantastic, and would love to see them again if they're still alive.

    Morrissey was great; but, as a Londoner, (feel free to flame me for this) I found the atmosphere just a little intimidating right up front. I admit it, you Mancunians are a lot harder than me.

    Show was great though, and atmosphere very good.
