    Alain Whyte YT: "Whyte Christmas" teaser video (December 13, 2020)

    I like his arrangement of "Last Christmas." If you like the guitars/feel of the Kill Uncle and Your Arsenal tours, you'll want to hear this and his take on "Jingle Bells."

    C86 Show podcast: Alain Whyte in conversation (November 20, 2020)

    Thanks for sharing, @Famous when dead. There were some interesting Morrissey-related tidbits that didn't get covered when Alain did the Julie Hammill and other UK interview earlier this year and he expands more on some of the other, established anecdotes. He claimed that Morrissey e-mailed to...

    What was the first The Smiths / Morrissey record you bought?

    Given that I bought it in the Midwestern United States, I suspect that had absolutely nothing to do with it.

    What was the first The Smiths / Morrissey record you bought?

    I discovered Morrissey solo first. My first purchase was a used copy of Your Arsenal on CD in June 1995. Southpaw Grammar was the first new release I bought. I branched out to the Smiths by purchasing Best 1 & 2 on CD in spring 1996.

    Morrissey Central "SOON / 2020 new releases" (September 6, 2020)

    If these are not placeholder images, they are risible covers. He looks positively cross-eyed in the Southpaw picture.

    Alain Whyte & Band: "Tell Me" - 'lockdown' version premiered (August 5, 2020)

    I would argue that Gary and Jonny were best suited to the albums they played on - though, at a push, it would have been interesting to hear Gary play on Southpaw. Boz's bass work on "Do Your Best And Don't Worry" seems like a "what would Gary Day play" moment on the album. It feels like a...

    Morrissey deluxe edition box sets - the lack thereof

    I think it's fairly normal for any artist to hold highest regard for what they have just produced, or what they are working on now. Ultimately, the point is to be artistically in the moment. I can't fault him for that logic, whether or not I agree with it. (E.g., Maladjusted as the best of him...

    Alain Whyte: "Tell Me" teaser video & lineup/tour update (August 2, 2020)

    That rhythm section makes this line-up sound about twice its size. Fitting that you mention Noel Gallagher and Craig is playing a Gibson 335 in the performance.

    Cold Love in prose We stole each other's clothes **** Then I was wrecked again with the men full of bluff and ardour from a well-known funeral parlour **** I'm writing this to say in a gentle way Thank You - but no I will live my life as I will undoubtedly die - alone **** Oh, you look...

    Alain Whyte: Nobody Loves Us - Safe At Home Sessions (June 23, 2020)

    So, by this logic, Morrissey should stop singing any songs he wrote before 1995, as its a "cheap way" to sell concert tickets. Alain is also playing his own solo songs in these sessions. Apparently, he, too, can have both.

    Alain Whyte: Nobody Loves Us - Safe At Home Sessions (June 23, 2020)

    When and where has he spoke ill of Morrissey in interviews? Specific examples, please. Alain is performing mainly songs that he co-wrote and sharing them at no cost - hence no "peddling" - via his YouTube and Facebook pages. He seems to enjoy it and the vast majority of his fans clearly do...

    Red lightning

    Alain Whyte still has new copies of the CD available for $5 on his website: There was no official live album released, barring the digital download of Alain's Hotel Cafe gig from last year (which includes three RL songs). I am aware of two...

    Alain Whyte: Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself - Safe At Home Sessions (June 7, 2020)

    Sounds great - the playing and falsetto parts could be mistaken for the Introducing Morrissey tour/video.

    Alain Whyte plays his own original song: Born to Hang

    That's a very good question. Perhaps @Famous when dead could advise on that front? It was a good recording - of a piece with Your Arsenal, naturally considering the players involved.
