    Moz Concert Ad on Local Phoenix Radio

    I am a former Phoenixian and you are absolutely right - that station NEVER plays any Morrissey, and nor to most of the stations in the area other than 103.9 that takes "retro" requests during the lunch hour. I think in my 13 years in phx I heard "Every day is like Sunday" once - only as a...

    the kindness of other...

    I see you are from Tucson, AZ - I used to live in Phoenix and I LOVED the Bookmans! I too bought my copy of Kill Uncle Maladjusted and even Strangeways from there, and when purchasing those the girl who rang me up took one look at my selection and pointed to the Smiths buttons on her shirts and...

    bring me the head of mark ronson

    hehe - I'm with you there, vicar. I've heard some truly awful covers (I think I have a similar folder) and comparatively, I thought this one was pretty good.

    Conrad Oberg: 12-year-old musician

    I was searching that Vince Taylor video Moz has been playing before the shows and found this video in the process. The story of Conrad Oberg is amazing and as you can see from the video, he is incredibly talented: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCfAL4l_ssU here's what it says about him on...

    whoa - great find!! I have the recorded version these guys (the Blue Frame Trio/Combo) did and its fantastic - probably the best cover of a Smiths song I've heard. Dude's got a nice voice too...

    Morrissey - ?questionable?

    Thank you for posting that! As the poster above said, I'm sure Moz would be honored to have made the list. Ravi Shankar is one i'm a bit confused on though...

    The Knitted Smiths are Go!

    The Cat's Mother, I truly admire your work!! The KnittedSmiths have come out fantastic with a remarkable resemblance as well. As for the setlist, perhaps: Pretty Girls Make Scarves The Boy with the Yarn in his Side Purl Afraid What a sad list. wow, that was harder to come up with than I...

    Morrissey and Linder

    Ludus are a truly terrific band - probably the best one of i've gotten into through Morrissey. Its really tough to pick a favorite song, although obviously "Breaking the Rules" stands out as one of the catchier ones, since almost all the songs have this strange melodic and rhythmic structure...
