Thought this might be of interest to all the non-U.K. Morrissey fans who want the new B-sides without ordering them from overseas. Attack Records is offering dowqnloads of the B-Sides for sale. The prices are reasonable, and they are offering other Attack artist's music for sale as well:

Attack download shop

01 Let Me Kiss You

£1.49 (3 Track Download Package)
02 Dont Make Fun Of Daddys Voice
03 Friday Mourning
04 I Am 2 People

It appears downloads are available for PC, Mac, and Unix users.

Viva Morrissey!

An anonymous person walso rites:

Attack Records has launched a new website which allows purchase of MP3 downloads.

This is quite unique, as none of the major labels offer unprotected mp3 formats. Price is quite high at 99p per track, but there's no restrictions on the files like there are with other services.

Available on the site is Morrissey's new single, "Let Me Kiss You" + 3 B-sides, Nancy Sinatra's version of LMKY, Remma's "Worry Young", Jobriath's "A Good Fight" and "Born That Way" by James Maker and Noko 440.

  From: Jed Weitzman
  To: roger shannon
  Subject: RE: response to petition

  Hello Roger -

  There is no need to petition to have the show come out.
  Be patient. It will in due time.

How Soon Is Now? (The Songs of the Smiths) - Rykodisc catalog

The Smiths and Morrissey’s impact on the world of Emo and Punk Rock is huge. The Smiths defied rockist conventions, while creating new classic guitar riffs and exploring the sensitive side of human nature with tongue in cheek. The Smiths & Morrissey set the stage for young bands to forge exciting new pathways in rock music.

With Morrissey’s return to the spotlight, a critical reassessment of The Smiths and their influence has occurred and on How Soon Is Now?, a new generation of bands tackle some of their greatest songs with love and respect.

Colin Hay, formerly of Men At Work, has mentioned Morrissey in an Irish publication Hot Press. In a short Q&A with Colin the following question is posed:

Q: Last record you bought or blagged'.
A: Morrissey's You Are The Quarry. I think He's a laugh, I find the new album very funny among other things'.

I hope he means witty.

Rather funny interview on The Danforth Review website with Moz-Solo's favourite Morrissey biographer Mark Simpson:

TDR Interview: Mark Simpson


British Vogue called him the Gay Anti-Christ, and in his new book, Saint Morrissey, Mark Simpson attempts to canonize British singer Morrissey. Simpson, the man who introduced the world to the word ‘Metrosexual’, has probed deep into the unknown world of the male imagery that Morrissey uses. From boxers to butchers, Morrissey has had a fascination with masculine iconography from the day Hand in Glove appeared in record stores, be-splashed with a nude male bum for a cover. For more information on Mark Simpson, visit his website at
