    Morrissey Central: "Joaquin Is Not A Dog On A Chain" (February 10, 2020)

    Hey, remember when Joaquin Phoenix condemned systemic racism at the BAFTAs?

    Morrissey Central: "… AND ‘IT’S OVER’ CAME TUMBLING AFTER" (December 20, 2019)

    Why is he getting so upset over a shit cover from an album released in May? Does he really believe that anyone other than the die hard Morrissey fans would want to hear this? Releasing it literally serves no sense, at least from BMG's perspective, other than to massage Morrissey's ego and make...

    Morrissey Central: "The Guardian Strikes again... and again..." (November 24, 2019)

    The Guardian is centrist at best. It's reporting is usually pretty good, but it doesn't seem to be either particularly left wing or particularly right wing. It has commentators and guest articles which come from the full political spectrum (except racists).

    The Smiths to reunite for 2020 tour promoted by Live Nation?

    By disastrous solo career, do you mean two albums that have been very well received and very high ticket sales for the tours he has done over the years, plus an appearance at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, playing Smiths' songs without butchering them?

    Supreme: Smiths inspired jacket in Fall '19 collection - Highsnobiety / Hazelatam.com

    What a load of shit. Supreme is for daft cunts.

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    I think that's why Johnny Marr has been so successful. He's written all sorts of music and played in all sorts of bands since 1987. His recent music is fantastic. The single Hi, Hello sounds just like a Smiths song and is a thing of beauty.

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    Absolutely. Much of Morrissey's music just hasn't aged well. Everything between 1988 - 1994 will age wonderfully, as will You Are the Quarry, due to its special place in history in Morrissey's back catalog and the wonderful, full, clean production of the great Jerry Finn. But everything since...

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    Like I said in a previous comment, I, and I imagine some others, don't dislike her because she defends Morrissey, but simply because is an extremely poor writer, who seems to know very little about the actual music, as I illustrated in her complete lack of basic knowledge about the writing...

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    We don't dislike Fiona and Sam for no reason, but because they ultimately fail very badly at their jobs. Sam is a terrible graphics designer and publicist for Morrissey. Look at some of the work he has output. Remember the horrible record sleeves or bad Photoshops he knocked up or THAT terrible...

    Mporium: "Something is happening tomorrow @ The Mporium store"

    Yep. Just pre-ordered three versions of the new LP (WHY??). Couldn't afford the most expensive bundle. Going see them in November at Manchester!

    Mporium: "Something is happening tomorrow @ The Mporium store"

    Exactly. I just hope no one is dumb enough to buy them. Invest money in records that will increase in value instead.

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    See, I love Fatty, with its lovely jangly Smithesque guitars and funny lyrics, and Certain People I Know with its clear rockabilly influences. I think that The Loop would have made more sense thematically, considering the overall sound of the album, than say Seasick, Yet Still Docked, which I...

    Mporium: "Something is happening tomorrow @ The Mporium store"

    I know you know, but unfortunately some newer Morrissey fans who are new to collecting records may not well know that it isn't a real test pressing. This is just a cynical attempt to take advantage of people by charging £100 for a record without the artwork.

    She'd be perfect for the Sun or Mail, but I'd hardly call that journalism.

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    Fiona Dodwell is an awful writer and journalist, having missed out a great deal of info about Your Arsenal. For a start, she got some things wrong about Bowie's reasoning for covering "I Know It's Gonna Happen Some Day". Bowie realised that the song was essentially a rip off of "Rock n Roll...

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    The music of the Smiths was influenced by rockabilly and rock 'n' roll in general. - Rusholme Ruffians (sounds like Elvis's Marie's the Name of His Latest Flame, which the Smiths actually covered, as heard on Rank) - Nowhere Fast - Girl Afraid - Shakespeare's Sister - Vicar In a Tutu - Death At...

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    Your Arsenal did only get to number 4, which seems astonishing now as it is clearly Morrissey's best solo album. Viva Hate, Vauxhall & Ringleader all reached number 1.

    Revisiting "Your Arsenal" 27 Years On - New Article on Eject Music by Fiona Dodwell

    Really? Live At Dallas is the only Morrissey DVD I ever watched only once, because it's just awful. Awful video quality, awful quality of the band. Alain and the lads got much better when they were playing stuff they had written (anything from Pregnant For the Last Time onwards), but they...

    Mporium: "Something is happening tomorrow @ The Mporium store"

    Precisely why I'm selling off my collection (but not my Smiths records). I don't need all those records sat there, when so many of them have doubled or tripled in value since I bought them. I think I'd rather have the money to save up instead.
