    Tony Visconti says he wouldn't mind working with Morrissey again; not in touch - Irish Times

    Yes, but if the mix that was handed over to the mastering engineer already had limited dynamic range, there's not much they can do about it. From what Tony Visconti has said about his production approach (eg. in this book) it's highly likely this is what happened.

    New single - "Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up On The Stage"; first play on Jeremy Vine show

    Come on, that's the sound of transformers/power/tape/rock and roll! Well spotted though. Ears like yours are the reason producers like me are so paranoid. That said, there are a couple of legitimate reasons why that hiss might be there: 1. If it was produced by the original E-piano, then...

    New single - "Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up On The Stage"; first play on Jeremy Vine show

    No, I didn't know that, but it makes a lot of sense. That would have been another source of ennui surrounding Moz in 1997 - along with the music industry, the fanbase, and the state of music in general (Brit pop was old news; old Morrissey must have seemed prehistoric). I love many songs from...

    New single - "Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up On The Stage"; first play on Jeremy Vine show

    Oh, absolutely! It's a real guitar masterpiece, and there's a certain dynamic between Alain and Boz - Alain playing stark, economic melodies, Boz adding the acoustic "chug" - that wasn't present on the Kill Uncle tour and can probably be attributed to Mick Ronson (particularly evident on...

    New single - "Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up On The Stage"; first play on Jeremy Vine show

    Interesting. I've always thought of Your Arsenal as one of the production peaks myself (definitely one of the musical and lyrical peaks), but I was listening to it the other day and wondering... As someone who's dabbled in production myself, almost invariably with rock bands, there's something...

    "Spent The Day In Bed" - new single debuts on BBC Radio 2 / The Chris Evans Show (Sep. 19)

    Dodgy tuning job on one of the "beds" in the first verse. Thought that was more Drake's thing, but here we are, I suppose. Now the important question: where the f*** is Boz?! Are we certain he wasn't trying to saying "No Boz" at the end there? Ominous

    The Smiths - (TQID) Warners 20th anniversary bonus cd of related rarities cd-r on eBay

    Could we "crowdfund" a winning bid here on M-Solo, or am I taking a Panglossian view?

    Irvine, CA - Bren Events Center (Nov. 9, 2016) post-show

    Wasn't the alleged quote "statistically only 20% of Americans voted for you know who"? Americans, not "Americans eligible to vote." If you're going to be pedantic, at least get the pedantry right.

    Ringleader

    Quite the opposite. Of all his releases, it's the biggest victim of 'modern' rock production - from an audio engineering perspective, I believe the technical term is 'slammed to f***'. For the one thing, it's the loudest of his releases, as this chart shows. If you want to get specific, I think...

    Smiths Reunion Setlist

    Ok, here's a bit of fun... Imagine - against all the odds - that Morrissey and Marr announce a 'Smiths reunion' (no Mike or Andy) at the end of the year. One show, in Manchester. What do you think they play? And why? I'll start: Hand in Glove Panic The Headmaster Ritual William, It...
