    Strange/unexpected Moz references?

    More chance of M being Pope elect than Central showcasing the beauty and power of The Smiths. Reputed to be one of the loudest & frenzied concerts of their lifetime. Paul Dundon was the cataloguer of The Smiths' vision & sound. Nostalgia truly is sorrow's native son.

    Good point. Well made. Always thought Anna Calvi would be a perfect fit for duet duties.

    I'd be surprised if Beyonce even knows who M is.

    Didn't SS get something like 40% of royalties first time round?

    what should i call my novel?

    My mere meek suggestion. Find a couple of folk you really trust, feed them scraps of your words and ask them to be brutally candid.

    Thanks for sharing. Learn something new every day eh? Maybe it's nostalgia bones, but been good distraction talking of them The Smiths....

    Morrissey’s Penguin Classic

    Given M was so entrenched in all things 60s, this narrative is more than plausible . The lyric "Manchester so much to answer for" always struck me as being pivotal to the aesthetics of the band. Steve Strange was a central component of 'The Moors Murderers.' Not sure if it was ever released, but...

    Morrissey’s Penguin Classic

    It's an undisputed fact Marr pulled the plug. Some have contested that if he had been allowed to take a few months break (involving side-projects) then the band could have merrily carried on. Bit like a strained relationship, I guess. The Smiths were very prolific during their relatively short...

    Morrissey’s Penguin Classic

    Don't forget Marr was still very young, to be effectively "managing" what were arguably the biggest indie band in the world at the time. History may (or may not) record all the intricacies involved. I met M a few times, mainly due to working in Wimpole Street which was just around the corner...

    Morrissey’s Penguin Classic

    This was in the days when court-cases & royalties were a million miles away. The Smiths were always friendly & courteous with their fans. They were just happy & proud to be central to something so precious.

    Morrissey’s Penguin Classic

    There is no definitive answer. M somewhere read "the Smiths" in print - and it appealed. Probably was the book about the Moors Murderers. Mike Joyce told a friend.

    The Smiths live at the Nottingham Royal Centre on 21st Oct 1986, playing "How Soon Is Now?" and "Still Ill" - Soundsville International / YouTube

    Purchased this from Paul Dundon on VHS back in the day. The angle from behind the band was pretty unique. They were simpler days for Morrissey fans.

    name that tune

    You getting confused with The Wedding Present's 'Don't Laugh' ?? "I touched you skin last night but your side of the bed was empty, so I guess I must have dreamt it." Or could be "as I climb into an empty bed." I Know It's Over (Smiffs)

    Upcoming Record Collector Smiths special (release April 21, 2022)

    As much as I still adore them, does anyone else think that The Smiths cow has been well & truly milked? And yes, I will purchase Record Collector. Often wonder how they would have sounded if they had longevity of U2, for example. Guess they were of their time & place, leaving biscuit tins of...

    Off-topic discussion thread / moved as clogging other threads

    My Gran always said best way to treat an attention seeking child was to ignore. He obvs just sits waiting for the next MSolo update and frantically jumps on the keyboard like a wailing widow. Maybe the 15 minutes of failed fame (!?) on Mastermind tortured him. He has one award...of all the M...

    Morrissey Central "Coronation Street." (April 3, 2022)

    I'm old school Smiths. Attended Amanda Hill's first ever Convention in Wolverhampton, devoured 'Smiths Indeed' until my fingers bled. As the band became more popular some of the older fans began to resent the newer apostles. Stupid in the extreme. Many have fallen by the wayside (death, lack of...
