Pretty incredible that this site has been an IT work-in-progress for David since the 90s -- when I first started frequenting (around the time Maladjusted came out/toured). Now, almost a quarter of a century later we have Viva Moz Vegas and a brand new Morrissey-Solo.

Has an epic, album closer feel. Followed by a punk outro of My Hurling...

Thank you, Anonymous. I post far less than I used to (been leerin' here since '97) but still a big fan of our kid.
And I agree 1000% with your assessment of that era in Morrissey's music. Particularly Vauxhall –– it will never date. I always remember Radiohead saying that they played Vauxhall...
This is enjoyable because it's Alain singing it and the playing is not bad. If you want to get critical I would say this is very good karaoke vocals. But why get critical? Alain gave us so many great Morrissey songs over the years, and as others have mentioned, backing vocals (Why Don't You Find...
