    Morrissey Central "Turning The Inside Out." (July 5, 2021)

    Interesting read, my grip on my chair always tightens when I hear “interview” The title track and it’s bombing lyrical content is worrying, not that I don’t feel things like that should be avoided in music, but we know how easy people like to add fuel to the fire. I do hope it’s tasteful (if...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Nobody Loves Us"

    Masterful song, well positioned as the b-side to “Dagenham Dave” both songs telling the two sides of the working class coin - one, cheeky chappy, jokey on the surface level, the other, deeper and more grounded in inescapable reality

    Morrissey A-Z: "Home Is a Question Mark"

    I for one do think it’s something he would have said 20 years prior, he’s always had that bit of cheeky “carry on” humour which has mixed results when paired with such emotive vulnerability - “some girls” “dear god, please help me” “Alsatian cousin”

    Fiona Dodwell: "How Morrissey outran The Smiths (and why his critics will never admit it)" (February 18, 2021)

    Good grief, she needs to give it a rest. Surely at some point you would look back at your work as a writer, and realise you’ve only ever written about one bloody subject, and not even in the long and time resistant format of a book or critics essay - just blog post after blog post!

    Morrissey A-Z: "Dear God Please Help Me"

    One of his most underrated 21st century tunes for me - the production is beautiful, wistful and the lyrics (yes even “explosive kegs) are fantastic. “And I am so very tired, of doing the right thing” who hasn’t ever felt like that?

    Morrissey A-Z: "Break up the Family"

    “Let me see all my old friends, let me put my arms around them” hits harder right now with the current state of things. A lovely song.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Bobby, Don't You Think They Know?"

    Great tune, not on replay often due to it’s length for me but I was happy Moz did something different, I initially wished there was more to the lyrics than what there is but I’m not particularly bothered now. It’s got some groove and funk to it, and it’s playful rather than spiteful as Moz has...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Black-Eyed Susan"

    “We were the first, we were the first” something I can’t describe in that last line makes the whole thing worth listening to over and over again

    Morrissey A-Z: "Bengali in Platforms"

    Can see why it divides opinion, but I do like the song very much. As some have said, it has a gorgeous floating quality and the guitar I find lovely. The lyrics, whilst certainly clumsy, I personally don’t find racist or bigoted - but then again, my background is not Bengali, so my testimony can...

    Fiona Dodwell: "10 Underrated Morrissey Tracks You Need To Hear Today" (November 3, 2020)

    Does she ever write about anything other than Moz? Strange. The choice of song is personal ofcourse but I disagree with many, and can’t find many compelling arguments in her writing to sway me otherwise. Still, best of luck to her
