In the same page, they talk about the new Neil Finn album and mention the Smiths cover "There is a Light (that never goes out)". Yes, not only Warner can make an error in a Smiths song title.

From August 2001's Sight & Sound film magazine (so I'm a bit behind in my reading!), in the contributor's listings in the front, for contributor Armond White (film critic/scholar), I believe he still writes regularly for a New York City paper. "Knee Deep in Great Experiences," the author's "analysis of pop singer Morrissey" should "be published in the US this Autumn." That's all I know for now...

Channel Four here in the UK have an interview with Johnny Marr on their Teletext service. On the Warners Best Of: "I'm aghast at the contempt they've shown to us and the fans" (he says he had been thinking about putting together a DVD with unseen Smiths footage). On Morrissey:

Q: Morrissey has a new solo album due ...
A: It sounds rude but I'm not really interested. If someone played it to me, I wouldn't go: "turn that off". But, going from Morrissey's albums to date, I can't see how I'd like it. Sorry.

I just got back from watching "Donnie Darko," a horror movie set in 1988. They included a lot of 80's music (no Morrissey or Smiths, though), but there's a scene where you can see some graffiti on the back of a school bus. It reads 'Morrissey Rules.' Just thought I'd share that.

Last friday (October 26th) Belle & Sebastian, who played The Smiths' covers several times, did a gig in São Paulo, and the band leader, vocalist Stuart Murdoch, was wearing a Smiths t-shirt the whole time. It was a shirt with the "Hatful of Hollow" cover. Unfortunately, the band didn't play any Smiths/Morrissey songs.

This might be ill-advised following the Neil Finn thread but Edward the Bear has recently, and unrelatedly, covered There Is A Light That Never Goes Out at a label showcase. It certainly has a garage-feel to it but it's got an amount of charm and class. The old 12-string guitar got a workout as did the analog synthesizer. Video is available at Don't mind all the shadows either, the lighting was dire (otherwise known as 'creative').
