    On the topic of M&M vs. Joyce and Rourke. Can someone clarify this?

    ThreeStrangeDays, Rourke and Joyce claimed they didnt know about the 40/40/10/10 split. Mozz and Marr claimed that they did. Unfortunately I think a lot of M&M's evidence ended up being hearsay evidence, for example accounts of Joyce speaking in a kitchen at a party about the 40/40/10/10...

    Noise is the Best Revenge and I'm Playing Easy to Get

    The lyrics in Im Playing Easy To Get are beautiful. Some of his best in years I think. Shame they never recorded it for an album properly, its a terrific song. Was anyone on here there when he played it live? Must have sounded good.

    Hollywood Bowl Setlist

    Just looking at the setlist for Hollywood bowl on the front page, this is surely one of the best setlists of Mozz's solo career? Really shows the variety in his canon, mixing some old Smiths favourites, old and more contemporary solo favourites as well as the new stuff which is now really...

    Apologies if its cropped up on here before. Was reading one of those 'Last week I...watched/listened to/read' sections in the media section in The Independent on monday and under the 'Last week I read' section she put "Im writing a book about Morrissey fans at the moment so ive been reading a...

    Joe Moss

    When did he leave the Smiths entourage? Watching some obscure YouTube video last night (cant find the link now, will recover it when I get home) and Marr said the day 'so-and-so' (obviously Moz) inclined that it was time to get rid of Joe, the implication being it was because he was getting...

    Advice on mixed CD

    I agree, I dont think they are amongst their best either, but closest to the other songs she liked. But as you said, I should really pick different songs to display how versatile they were musically. Fair enough point.

    Old Trafford

    What are you talking about? Munich, Heysel and especially Hillsborough get remembered every year. Thats the problem with minutes silences, if you give one event a minutes silence people start asking questions when another doesnt get one. The FA should stop telling clubs when to have minutes...

    Advice on mixed CD

    Hello there. Was asked to make a CD by a friend who is interested in The Smiths. Just looking for some advice, based on the ones she has liked thus far, which you think are in similar vain to. She likes Panic and Girlfriend In A Coma. Can you think of any Smiths songs which you think are...

    Morrissey - ?questionable?

    That would make sense after seeing this, the single endorsed and presumably created by the makers of that site: One of the funniest things ive seen in ages. It cant be real!

    Uncut Special

    I went into One Stop (conveniance store thing in England) to buy a twix and some flying saucers when I stumbled across this issue of Uncut. Havent got round to reading it yet but looks quite in depth when I had a flick through. If it is the March edition, as it says on the front, why is it on...

    ROTT...Your Final Verdict?

    I think ROTT lacks the oustanding singles that YATQ had, nothing on it quite reaches the chart busting levels (quality wise) of First Of The Gang or Irish Blood, English Heart (one of his best solo songs ever IMO) but overall I think ROTT is a better album. I like the atmosphere and texture...

    Pink Floyd

    I'd say that's a perfect summing up, to be honest. Excellently put. I agree completely re: differences and similarities. The Teachers Are Afraid of The Pupils is a little Pink Floyd like, although actuslly a weak song IMO. In any event, I agree that Pink Floyd are/were a terrific band...

    Single 1 liner......

    Not sure I can pick just one to sum up 'my life', but I always adored: "Your prejudice wont keep you warm tonight" from What Difference Does It Make.

    What SMiths/Moz Mix CD do you give to your friends...

    Ah, interesting topic! I've made two in the last few months, for people at Uni who said they heard a few Smiths song and liked it and asked me if I could borrow a CD. Dont remember the first one but the second one is still saved on my laptop. He heard and liked 'This Charming Man', 'There Is...

    Who is off to Brum then?

    How many of you lovely people will be present in the land of the drab then? Coach leaves here (Leeds) pretty early so i'll be the one looking like death warmed up. Went to Apollo and Reading but not since then. How many going then? Anyone been to the NIA before? What's it like?

    I'm Not Sorry

    Good song on Quarry, but as mentioned, on 'Live in Manchester' it really comes out as the beautiful song it is. Great performance. To me it's fairly obvious it's about Moz's search for a record deal, using this as a way to reflect on the past/present I suppose. However, like in 'I Won't Share...

    Morrissey is a nasty human being

    I actually found that very funny. Here is this bitter old drunk ranting on about one of the greatest artists that ever drew breath and he gets so angry, twisted and wound up that you think his head is going to turn inside out, so much so he has to be stopped by the interviewer who presumably is...
