    Mojo: brief Johnny Marr interview (issue 350 "January, 2023")

    Sounds like Queen talking to Sacha Baron Cohen about the Freddie biopic. It's a great story with this really sad event half way through.

    Morrissey Central "Las Vegas, 2022" - Vegas shows to showcase songs from "Bonfire of Teenagers" (May 20, 2022)

    Yeah, that cover is a lot better. Agree the font is bad, and not very clear. But I'll take it. The back cover is fantastic.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me"

    Amazing beautiful song. One of their very best. I always imagined Mary Coughlan singing this, in her bluesy style.

    "Suedehead" (Original Instrumental) posted by RetroMusicWorld / YouTube (March 13, 2022)

    Totally agree. Would love to hear the Street tapes to get a feel for where a song like Suedehead was going before Vinny made his contribution. I think he was going to release them at some point to counter Vinny's claims that he should have had a credit.

    "Suedehead" (Original Instrumental) posted by RetroMusicWorld / YouTube (March 13, 2022)

    Amazing track. You can hear a few additional Vinny Reilly flourishes buried in the mix. What a musical combination that was. Did Street ever compose anything after Morrissey? Any co-writes? Would dearly love to see some behind the scenes of the production of this record. Thanks to whoever...

    The Smiths A-Z: "I Started Something I Couldn't Finish"

    Contrary to much of the album, the lyrics are better than a rather discordant tune. Hair brushed and parted. Do I dare to eat a peach?

    Andy Rourke and Johnny Marr today

    Good to see Andy looking so well. You'd worry about him. Johnny looks fit and well too although he needs to do a McCartney and introduce some grey into his colour job. I'd love to see a photo with Mike. I never understood why there wasn't a rapprochement there with Johnny at least.

    RSD 2022: Sandie Shaw - Hand In Glove coloured vinyl 12" announced (February 16, 2022)

    I have the original 12 so not jumping on this one. I like her take on I don't owe you anything. Hand in Glove is strangely over the top production. A bit like Shakespeare's Sister, it's had everything thrown at it.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Golden Lights"

    Great to hear general support for this song. I've always quite liked it. I'd not heard that there was a Porter version. Would genuinely like to hear without the vocal effects and different instrumentation.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Frankly, Mr Shankly"

    Love the trumpet demo version. Was disappointed they didn't use that take on TQID box set. When are getting a box set of Strangeways (yes that seems even more remote a project now unfortunately)? That album is preserved in aspic for me, and needs a reassessment with a full "alternate takes"...

    Johnny Marr - Night and Day

    Maybe he started out with the Paul McCartney method, and just got stuck. 🎶 "Scrambled Eggs...."🎶

    Johnny Marr - Night and Day

    Catchy enough little tune, better appreciated by not watching a "Lyric" video.

    NME: "Does Rock ‘N’ Roll Kill Braincells?! - Boy George" - Morrissey mentions (November 20, 2020)

    I love Maladjusted. I also love Boy George. I wish our boy had half his charm and wit in his old age. In short, I wish he was better adjusted.

    Tim's Twitter Listening Party - "Strangeways, Here We Come" with Stephen Street (Sep. 28, 2020)

    The death of the Smiths is what made his lyrics and performance on Viva Hate so powerful. He'd grown complacent towards the end of the Smiths and fell back too often on "carry on" style humour. The only stand out, heartfelt tracks on Strangeways are Last Night, Paint a Vulgar, and I won't share...

    Johnny Marr's son calls Morrissey a racist on Instagram

    Interesting, thanks. I've come to respect Johnny a lot more since he started putting out his recent solo albums. Really liked Playland. But I used to bristle at the suggestion that his time in The The was longer and at least as significant.

    Johnny Marr's son calls Morrissey a racist on Instagram

    Johnny achieved one (1) co-songwriting credit during all his time with The The, so I think it's safe to say he'd be "that good guitarist who played with Matt Johnson" rather than Johnny f***in' Marr.

    Autoplay video ad

    Just tried that, but the video ad still plays. I'm on Samsung S8+ Pie. We can but hope for Q to fix everything, but I've been here before... :-)

    Autoplay video ad

    Thanks FWD. I turned off autoplay but it still plays. Attaching screenshot for you Davidt. This overlay slides in from bottom right and autoplays. It's some sort of tracking ad as it's all very tuned into my searches.

    Autoplay video ad

    I get an autoplay video playing in the bottom right of this site. I haven't got a problem with ads but this one knocks out whatever I am listening to at the time. Chrome browser on Android Pie. Is this normal and is there anything I can do. Thanks

    "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle" original, full length (Decibelle Studios) posted on YouTube

    You're absolutely correct. Particularly easy to hear on the hofner and gretsch isolated track. I stand, as a huge Andy fan, corrected.
