Yes, exactly! I <3 Xiu Xiu/Jamie so much. Not everyone's cup of tea but there's no need for all the slagging on here. Typical, I suppose.
There a fair few musicians like this who are huge Morrissey/Smiths fans who don't necessarily try to sound like it. Parenthetical Girls and Former Ghosts and...
COLT STUDIOS FOUNDER JIM FRENCH DIES - Antebellum Blog
I don't know if this will interest anyone, but Jim French died recently at the age of 85 (the link includes some NSFW images).
His work graced the cover of "Hand in Glove", its model still (apparently?) shrouded in mystery.
I think he means relatable as well.
The allure of Morrissey's lyrics owes a great deal to the connection anyone can make with those real or imagined experiences. If they can pull a fraction of that into this film and how We Are All Morrissey, I will be pleased. Tick, tock.
There were several people around me sitting down or looking away, but I didn't catch anyone leaving from my viewpoint near the front right. Methinks the author was using a little creative license there.
The young teen in front of me was all in for it and Ganglord, probably her first Morrissey...
I honestly doubt this is the last show ever. Hasn't he teased that before?

Personal highlights, in no order:
Last Night I Dreamt
Jack The Ripper
He seemed in particularly good spirits, lots of...
Strangeways is indeed named after the album. The owner is a huge fan, and it's typically a good crowd. Great food, amazing beer selection.
There's also Movement Britpop Club tonight at Lee Harvey's just south of downtown. Not Morrissey-centric but always likely to play some Moz and Smiths in...
The Morrissey/Smiths comparisons were what initially drew me to Gene (so I must thank those journos for that at least), but it didn't take more than a couple of listens to the first singles to realize that comparison was thin at best, the need of the press to spin any band or performer as if...
The last person I spoke to said the "facing suite" was the basic set-up but they also seemed to be trying to rearrange the people seated in the CC section that the website was selling. As long as our tickets are where we've been told, I think we'll all be happy. It's not a very large venue at...
