    Leeds - Millennium Square (July 12, 2023) post-show

    I don’t know if the fan base has actually changed that much, to me it’s pretty much the same as it was in the 90s, the only difference being that some of the stereotypical ‘sensitive’ Smiths type fans have burnt all their old records primarily so they could tell everyone about it on social media...

    Leeds - Millennium Square (July 12, 2023) post-show

    Ah right, fair enough, well I missed that. But then it goes back to my original caveat - even if there was, so what? There’s literally nothing wrong with it. The vibe of that show was one of joy among the crowd, there was nothing sinister about any of it.

    Leeds - Millennium Square (July 12, 2023) post-show

    There were no Union Jacks and St George’s flags that I saw at the show. In fact there were no flags at all. Why would the reviewer pretend there was…? And even if there was - which there wasn’t - so what? The reality was that there were thousands of people enjoying themselves and having a...

    Leeds - Millennium Square (July 12, 2023) post-show

    No, it’s great. It’s like moody, atmospheric disco 😆

    Leeds - Millennium Square (July 12, 2023) post-show

    I was there last night - the sound could’ve been better but then it was an outdoor show and it comes with the territory. However that opening salvo of 5 songs was the best opening run I’ve seen Moz do, it was fantastic. He was in good form as well, full of amusing banter. Ignore the haters, this...

    This simply demonstrates you have no idea what you’re talking about, which is of course a surprise to no-one

    Leeds - Millennium Square (July 12, 2023) post-show

    GBNews isn’t ‘right wing’ in the traditional sense that people understand it. It is ‘culturally conservative’ which basically means it reflects many of the values of the traditional working class ‘Old Labour’… ie not ‘New Labour’… ie not ‘2023 Conservative’… or ‘2023 Labour’ for that matter...

    Morrissey Central "Somewhere near Leeds." (July 11, 2023)

    They’re at Grantley Hall near Harrogate, that’s the bar area outside. It’a a very nice hotel but about a grand a night.

    Off-topic discussion thread / moved as clogging other threads

    There’s only one side amenable to a two-state solution… and it’s not the Palestinians.

    Morrissey Central "THANK YOU, ISRAEL !!!!" (July 5, 2023)

    Only a predictably anti-Israel NPC would try to dig some offence out of such an innocuous statement

    Tel Aviv - Bitan (July 4, 2023) post-show

    Notre Dame is great, it’s oddly reminiscent of Do You Think I’m Sexy?

    The Spectator: "What the Smiths' critics don't get" by Gareth Roberts (June 6, 2023)

    It’s not actually really *that* right-wing, it just gives room for opinion on the right (as well as some of the left) which is something The Guardian et al simply wouldn’t do the reverse of.

    The Spectator: "What the Smiths' critics don't get" by Gareth Roberts (June 6, 2023)

    Interesting fact I only learnt the other day - The Lotus Eaters featured Michael Dempsey who was the original bassist of The Cure before Simon Gallup.

    The Spectator: "What the Smiths' critics don't get" by Gareth Roberts (June 6, 2023)

    The Spectator is probably the best political magazine. It certainly has the best, most interesting, and funniest writing of any serious UK publication.

    The Guardian: "‘An astounding rush of real-time creativity’: 40 years of the Smiths’ Peel Sessions" by Michael Hann (May 31, 2023)

    Curious to know why one cannot describe reggae as vile, whether they mean it or not (he obviously meant it as a narky joke because Redondo Beach is basically a reggae tune) Curious to know why the subspecies comment is intentionally taken out of context - it was specifically made in relation to...

    Spiked: "The fire in Morrissey" (December 31, 2022)

    The main contributors to Spiked are more traditionally left-wing eg Brendan O’Neill, Ella Whelan, etc. however their position on ‘culture war’ issues create an illusion that they’re somehow ‘right wing’. But they’re not really, they just position themselves against the current obsessions of the...

    Daily Mail Morrissey article "Bonfire Of Teenagers" & Manchester Bombing (October 27, 2022)

    The song is completely justified and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. The Islamic side of the seemingly now normalised terror attacks across Europe over the past 20 years is always played down, as if it is all coincidental, but that’s like suggesting the IRA terror attacks of the 80s...

    Justin Hawkins analyzes "The Queen Is Dead" - 'I'll Fight You, If You Disagree With Me'

    Phil Anselmo, who was the vocalist in Pantera - and were way heavier than The Darkness - is also a massive fan of Morrissey and The Smiths (link below)

    Manchester - O2 Apollo (Oct. 4, 2022) post-show

    Many reviews leading up to this were pondering ‘we’ll see how well Bonfire of Teenagers goes down in Manchester’… Well, after the first chorus and ‘I shall look back in anger until the day I die’, the crowd roundly applauded clearly in agreement.
