"Barry Ryan sings Eloise and rises to number 3 with a song that is five-and-a-half-minutes long – an eternity in radio space. It is an overly dramatic epic of clash and plea, a 48-piece orchestra wrapped in cliff-bound sirens, racing to an out-of-my-mind screaming vocal. It is an unusual disc, and Barry Ryan is from Leeds, the adopted city of Alan Clarke and Billy Bremner. None of the family had passed the 11-Plus exam, and henceforth cannot be saved, our futures doomed by an undotted i. We transmute from the gothic horror of St Wilfrid’s to the next phase in a familiar theme, and unto an even darker place go. If, like Oliver Twist, I had known, I would have screamed all the more louder, and not even Something here in my heart by the Paper...

A new book out this week: Like Magic in the Streets: Orange Juice, Aztec Camera, the Go-Betweens, the Smiths, the Blue Nile and the End of Romance

“An amazing book. I couldn't put it down. Meticulously researched and continuously compelling, I learnt a lot about these five seminal albums I didn't know myself.”
Craig Gannon, Aztec Camera/the Smiths


Like Magic in the Streets tells the curious stories behind the making of much-loved indie LPs: You Can’t Hide Your Love Forever, High Land, Hard Rain, Before Hollywood, The Smiths and A Walk Across the Rooftops - music that couldn’t have been made at any other time, shaped by an age of radical transformation during the early Eighties.

Question Is This Actually Morrissey?

Came across this on Twitter today. It's supposed to be a pic of a young Morrissey. What do you think?

UPDATE Oct. 7:

Posted by Neil Barker in the comments:

Hi everyone. Glad you're all enjoying the photos!

The blonde woman is my auntie Susan (she didn't go out with Billy Duffy) and the other people are Carol (neither her nor Susan went out with Morrissey or Billy Duffy) and Carol's then boyfriend Mike.

It is 100% Morrissey though I agree that the first photo looks nothing like him.
