    Ian McCulloch and Arctic Monkeys reference Morrissey / The Smiths in concert

    Love The Bunnymen and back in the day they were one of the best bands you could ever see. Think EATB were always a bit jealous of The Smiths and they never had the same type of acclaim. Will Sergeant is an incredible musician. I have to disagree with the 'good friend' of Macs who said he...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Shoplifters Of The World Unite"

    Probably as good as it ever got for The Smiths and that TOTP performance was incredible. It was my Bowie-Starman moment if you like although I had already bought all the singles and albums by the time this aired. The were a gang not a band then and Morrissey had such beautiful skin. What a way...

    Queen Elizabeth II has died, Buckingham Palace announces - BBC (September 8, 2022)

    I'm of Irish Catholic descent so have no real love for the Royals but if ever there was a time for Moz to stay quiet this is it. The vultures were circling overnight on social media just waiting on him saying something.

    Bonfire of Teenagers is over a year old

    It's not the first time Morrissey has announced a single that never happened. Lady Willpower/ Rainbow Valley was another. I have to be honest I took the announcement of 'I Am Victoria' with a huge bag of salt as he still had no label to release it.

    This is a lovely cover. They really do it justice and they joy on their faces at playing such a beautiful songs is heart warming.

    The Killers - What She Said (w/ Johnny Marr), Seattle WA, 8/20/2022

    Nothing against The Killers. It's nice to see the brilliance of those songs being brought to a different audience but all this does for me is reaffirm what an amazing vocalist Morrissey is.

    Bonfire of Teenagers is over a year old

    I've said it before but in the current climate the album title alone will prohibit a release.

    Independent / James Moore: "Morrissey on tour is the last thing Britain needs right now" (July 23, 2022)

    There is there really poorly written article's about Morrissey and then there is this. Dry your eyes for goodness sakes.

    Andy Rourke bass part for "This Charming Man" - 56th best bass part of all time in BassPlayer Magazine

    It's just been voted the 56th best bass part of all time in BassPlayer Magazine. 'The Smiths were a group at least a decade ahead of their time, doomed to be more read about than listened to during their active career, and only fully appreciated several years after the band members had gone...

    A joint headline with Burning Spear would have been a fantastic idea....

    What label will he sign with

    Saddens me to say it but even the proposed title of the album will hinder him from ever getting a label. As with the Veronica single release there have been several times over the years when Morrissey has indicated a single release is imminent only for it to be pulled for reasons unknow. There...
