    Morrissey Central "Morrissey in the UK" - UK tour details (June 9, 2022)

    Let's just hope this means that Bonfire is going to be released this year. Judging by Veronica it's going to be well worth the wait...

    Morrissey Central "Morrissey in the UK" - UK tour details (June 9, 2022)

    Not sure where you mean by 'here'? It was never a 'made up phrase used by the British establishment'. Many English-speakers in Ireland may not use the word, but they would all know what the word means - it is on the stamps and the coins, after all. Those in the Gaeltacht - where Irish is still...

    Morrissey Central "Texas massacre" (May 27, 2022)

    It's hard to know if you typed that with a straight face. What a 'brave new world' that would be. And as for Valerie Solanas - I'm with Lou on that crazy lunatic.

    Morrissey Central "Texas massacre" (May 27, 2022)

    And yet (heterosexual) women are hard wired to select a partner according to 'manliness'. That's a strange form of cancer.

    Morrissey Central "Texas massacre" (May 27, 2022)

    No doubt. But you could say that about any comment, especially those designed to shock. Personal loss will always affect how we express ourselves. 'You wouldn't say that if...'

    Morrissey Central "Texas massacre" (May 27, 2022)

    A really good example of why you shouldn't read The Guardian. The article reports Moz as saying the 'Norwegian killings are nothing...' whereas what he actually says is 'We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 [sic] dead. Though that is nothing compared to...

    Morrissey Central "Texas massacre" (May 27, 2022)

    At no point did Moz suggest that the victims of the Norway massacre did not deserve respect. He merely suggested that maybe our instinct to pick up a weapon and kill - and slaughter - is an instinct that the human race should aspire to overcome.

    Morrissey Central "Tyson Fury" (May 9, 2022)

    You seem obsessed with judging people according to their beliefs and opinions. Millions of people all over the world have beliefs and opinions that I don't share. I don't let it bother me. And I certainly wouldn't let it get in the way of my admiration for them if they achieved something...

    Morrissey Central "MOMS MABLEY (1894-1975)" (April 23, 2022)

    Yea, we know you don´t have a lot of time for blacks and Orientals. You big old racist.

    Paddy Considine interview in The Independent, mentions Morrissey

    Dead Man's Shoes is a classic. Watching it in the cinema was a powerful experience. I loved This is England too. The film and the TV series. The film dealt with themes of English nationalism in a way very similar to 'The National Front Disco'. Paddy Considine is one of the best English actors...

    Morrissey Las Vegas Residency 2022 announced (1,2,6,8,9 July 2022)

    'I am Veronica' sounds brilliant. One for jumping around the bedroom to.

    "Suedehead" (Original Instrumental) posted by RetroMusicWorld / YouTube (March 13, 2022)

    The intro to Suedehead always gives me shivers down the back of my neck. Just like it did when I first heard it back in 1988. Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive!

    Johnny Marr’s Manchester Derby Playlist (includes "top 5 Smiths songs")

    Maybe. I think Johnny has simply started to believe his own hype. He's undoubtedly one of the most sought after musicians in the world today. And he thinks this would have happened to him anyway with or without Morrissey. Working with Morrissey has become an embarrassing footnote. He thinks his...

    Johnny Marr’s Manchester Derby Playlist (includes "top 5 Smiths songs")

    Who’s the most talented person you’ve worked with during your time as a songwriter and musician? Where would I start?... Not with Morrissey clearly. How very sad.
