    "I Am Not A Dog On A Chain" released (March 20, 2020)

    I've sort of fallen out of love with Morrissey the last few years, mainly due to his views but also my own growing older and happier as a person. So this was always going to be an interesting listen for me. Given my distaste for Low in High School, I went in with very low expectations. Verdict...

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    I'm not sure why you think I'm being uncomfortable about this. I personally hate extremism on the left and the right, and I've already acknowledged that people on the left have also been responsible for mass killings and gross human rights abuses. As someone who considers themselves to be left...

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    I thought my point was pretty obvious. If Hitler was left wing, why did he brutally target pretty much everyone on the left (including some of the 'socialist' elements in his own party in the Night of the Long Knives), and why was most opposition to him coming from the left, via the SDP and the...

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    The only people to vote against Hitler's Enabling Act of 1933 were members of the left wing SDP. The communists had already been banned. This came after much intimidation and violence directed against socialists, many of whom ended up executed for their beliefs. It's rudimentary history, and...

    It’s not about politics

    Just read up on all this Q stuff. What a load of absolute bollocks.

    I take it you aren't a fan of 'Vicar in a Tutu'? :p

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    I'm no expert on public relations, but if my manager was going on drunken rants at 3 in the morning I'd consider hiring a new manager. As for Haslam etc, I agree that the impact of his event is being overstated. I suggest that the real 'protest' was fans simply unwilling to part with their cash...

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    Bizarre, rambling, and embarrassing. Which is pretty much the norm in Mozland these days.

    Morrissey Central: Tommy Robinson Freed - Styxhexenhammer666 YouTube

    It does feel like he discovered the internet about fifteen years after everyone else did. The next album cover will probably be something he drew on Microsoft Paint.

    Morrissey Central: Tommy Robinson Freed - Styxhexenhammer666 YouTube

    The sad decline continues. To think that around this time last year I was excited by a new album and potential tour. Now I just wish he'd retire and we never hear from him again, to be honest. At this point, half of me is considering shutting out anything Morrissey related and simply enjoying...

    Your Morrissey album Top 11

    I agree with that, certain songs can take time to grow on you. I also think sometimes our judgement can be coloured by our own experiences of the time we first listened. I have fond memories of things going on in my life around the time World Peace came out, and when I listen to the album it...

    Your Morrissey album Top 11

    1. Vauxhall and I - Stunning. An absolute masterpiece. 2. Viva Hate - Some wonderful tracks, especially the first half. But even the flaws have their charms, considering his vulnerabilities at the time. 3. You are the Quarry - Great album, with a few flaws in hindsight. But I've a special...

    "Blue Dreamers Eyes" - lost studio track posted on YouTube (via SER)

    I thought it was decent, more pleasant than the last 'lost' track. I agree that it feels half-finished though. There's a lovely song there somewhere, but it needs some work. For me, it starts well enough then sort of loses its way half way through. The lyrics could also do with a redraft. I say...

    What would be your 'Open Letter To Morrissey'

    Carry on what? Calling out your bullshit?

    What would be your 'Open Letter To Morrissey'

    You're no fan of 'queer activist-types' :lbf: Sounds like you're a bit uncomfortable with homosexuality yourself there, to be honest. Are you trying to insinuate that all Muslims want gay people killed? Because it's not what I've experienced from the Muslim people I know. From a gay perspective...
