    Morrissey Central "New keyboard player." (May 6, 2023)

    So, that is two woman in the band now? Why not get three more - it worked for Robert Palmer! ;)

    Greg Davies (UK actor/comedian) on Suedehead (the song he wishes he'd written) and Morrissey's current 'beliefs' (April 21, 2023)

    Pray do tell Mr Davies, what are his beliefs now? I would dearly love to know!

    What song are you listening to right now?

    56 years young - why is this such a little known gem?

    Poll Morrissey should stop playing The Smiths' songs in concert

    I dare say that many fans of Morrissey and visitors to Morrissey Solo would be more than happy for a Morrissey setlist to be comprised of purely his solo output, on the condition that the setlist wasn’t chosen by Morrissey. The man has a truly bountiful back catalogue of perfection, but he seems...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Ask"

    I don’t know why, but this has always been one of my least favourite songs by The Smiths. It ticks all the boxes, does everything it should in all the right places, but something just doesn’t hoist the song higher for me. Of course, by saying that this is (in my opinion) a lesser song by The...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Spent the Day in Bed"

    Like others here, I was disappointed when I first heard Spent The Day in Bed – being the lead single of the album I was hoping for something a little… stronger. On hearing this and seeing that album ‘artwork’ for Low In High School, I was rather nervous. As an album track or B side it would have...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Southpaw"

    A wonderful opposing bookend to The Teachers Are Afraid of The Pupils which starts our commute to and through ‘Southpaw Grammar’, this album finale, another ten minute topper, is just as absorbing. Lyrically Southpaw, to me, is an enjoyable slice of cathartic self-therapy. Couple that with some...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Sorry Doesn't Help"

    Years or Refusal is a difficult album for me, I would hazard a bet that it is the studio album I listen to the least (OK… it may tie with Ringleader of the Tormentors). In my mind the album has a few great songs, but is defined by a good half a dozen or so songs that are just a little…...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Sorrow Will Come in the End"

    I doubt this is a popularly held opinion, but I think Sorrow Will Come In The End is a fantastic song. The seething loathing, acerbic bitterness and cutting delivery just draws me in. The theatrical carnivalesque music and cracking whip sound of the gavel seems to only strengthen Morrissey's eye...

    Morrissey A-Z: "(A) Song from Under the Floorboards"

    Love the original, love Magazine, love Howard Devoto and love this cover. There is a chap near me who I see walking out & about on an almost daily basis - he looks a bit like Howard, and I am always reminded of his great music. I also adore his sole solo album, Jerky Versions of the Dream...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Something Is Squeezing My Skull"

    This highly enjoyable raucous number is one of Morrissey’s last truly great singles – as freshly energetic in 2021 as it was in 2009. The thoroughly quotable and addictive lyrics engage at every frenetic twist – all burns fast and bright and crashes out spectacularly around the 2 ½ minute mark...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Smiler with Knife"

    Love it! For me Smiler Is Knife is one of World Peace is None of Your Business’ highlights. That voice is on top form, the melody is intoxicating and lyrics both intriguing & enjoyable. By placing Smiler With Knife after the remarkably average Kiss Me A Lot, this song also gets a further boost….

    Morrissey A-Z: "(The) Slum Mums"

    A day behind, but... I have to say, my addled mind drew a brief blank when I saw this song title: The Slum Mums? One of the less memorable ‘You Are The Quarry’ b-sides - if my memory serves me? Of course after the first few seconds the entire song bubbles up from the murky pools – how could I...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Skin Storm"

    Did the Ordnance Survey put Bradford on the map with a little help from Morrissey, or was it the other way around? I do prefer the guitarwork of the original (which I must admit, I only listened to for the first time a few months back) and this song is fine as a B-side, but it doesn’t do a great...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Sister I'm a Poet"

    Morrissey So L'eau? Have a great holiday!

    Morrissey A-Z: "Sister I'm a Poet"

    A truly wonderful song, Sister I’m A Poet has one foot in The Smiths and the other kicking the door to Morrissey’s solo career off its hinges. With pure energy and captivating lyrics it is a sheer joy from start to finish. Sublime!

    Morrissey A-Z: "Sing Your Life"

    Although the 'wasteland of my head' is a little foggy this morning, I can with confidence still say that this is near perfect Morrissey. The stars compeletely align on this one: a tight band, strong and eminently quotable singalong lyrics & a happy Morrissey! I even liked the singles cover...
