    The Guardian: Stewart Lee's 'Honest Playlist' - 'can no longer listen to' Morrissey (September 5, 2022)

    Like Reverend Richard Coles a few months ago, Stewart Lee has nominated Morrissey for the artist/song he can no longer listen to in a Guardian questionnaire, citing his 'drift to the far right'. www.theguardian.com/music/2022/sep/05/stewart-lee-honest-playlist It's a bit disappointing that...

    Morten Harket on meeting Morrissey and covering The Sun Always Shines (new NME interview - September 2, 2022)

    At a 2004 gig in Norway, which musician introduced himself as ‘Morten’ before singing his own, lyrically-altered snippet of A-ha’s ‘The Sun Always Shines on T.V.’? MH: “The main guy who’s been vocal about A-ha is obviously Chris Martin from Coldplay, but that’s not who you’re looking for here?”...

    Morrissey and Sam Rayner on the Bonfire songs we've yet to hear...

    I've just been looking at last year's interview. It appears a lot of the supposed highlights are songs we've yet to hear. Most of these quotes are Sam's. - 'Ha Ha Harlem' is the song easiest to imagine live. It has a lot of lyrics and a lot of musical changes. You also use very high falsetto. I...

    Morrissey and Miley Cyrus's collaboration

    Surely a subject that deserves its own thread? It seems Miley C has provided backing vocals on "I am Veronica" as you can apparently hear her recorded voice at the recent live shows (although I wouldn't have spotted it). Perhaps not a massive surprise as they've been photographed hanging out...

    What do you think of the new song, 'I am Veronica'?

    Lots of different views on this so far but would be interesting to find out the consensus...

    Which new Morrissey songs would you most like to hear in the upcoming 2022 tour?

    Sounds like we'll be hearing at least one new song played live very shortly. A little hard to judge with just a snippet of 'Veronica' and the titles to go on, but in my experience an interesting song title usually means an interesting song...

    New Morrissey song, 'I am Veronica'

    Deserving of its own thread? So... It starts with a pleasant enough jangly riff Morrissey launches straight into what appears to be the chorus Opening line is, 'I, I, I, I, I am Veronica, the game I play is older than America'. Seems to be a backing vocal in the chorus, too (did Morrissey...

    Morrissey/Abba - Does Your Staircase at the University Know?

    Has this done the rounds yet? Looks like it came out last May. An intriguing combination and a good effort but ... it doesn't quite seem to work.

    Predictions for the August/September 2021 tour setlist

    So, assuming there are 24 songs (as I think he played in the 2020 shows), how many songs from which era/album do we expect to get an airing? I'm guessing: 5 from Dog on a Chain 2 from California Sun 3 from World Peace/High School 3 from Quarry/Ringleader/Refusal 4 from the 1990s (post Bona Drag)...

    Ten favourite Morrissey/Whyte songs

    There's a chance (if only a small one) that we'll get to hear the first new Morrissey/Whyte song since 2009's Years of Refusal in just a few days' time. So, a good time perhaps to reflect on one's 10 favourite Morrissey/Whyte songs to date. Here are mine: 1. The never-played symphonies 2...

    Morrissey's song about the Manchester Arena bombing - feelings, thoughts, expectations?

    A few simple thoughts from me: I'm glad he's written a song about it. It's odd how no-one really writes songs about massive modern-day events like this that affect millions of people. It seems fitting that he should write about it - it happened in his home town, on his birthday, and at a venue...

    Morrissey and Alain Whyte writing songs together again

    I thought this deserved its own thread but feel free to merge if not. Alain's written more songs with Morrissey than anyone else (including JM Marr) - around 70 compared with Marr's 65 or so. Guess we all thought they wouldn't be writing together again. The last album he played on was Ringleader...

    Alain's version of Well I wonder

    Don't remember this being shared before round these parts. I'm not the world's biggest A Whyte fan but really impressed by this. www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5-4Kvw7GmU Although Marr could doubtlessly play it better, I don't think he could sing it as well. Nice one, Al!

    Art D'Ecco - 'androgynous, neo-glam, art rocker' a new Moz fave?

    Only heard of this singer/act for the first time this morning (L Laverne played their new song on 6 Music). www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fiMPiSSIHU Strikes me as the kind of thing Mr SP Morrissey might like. They have at least one one album, Trespasser, which seems to have picked up some good...

    NME article hinting at the queasiness of being a modern-day Morrissey fan

    So, you're ideologically opposed to your favourite pop star. What next? (nme.com) It's not just about Morrissey but it mentions him and includes a photo. Journalist, Mark Beaumont, is/was a big fan and wrote the largely positive NME review of Dog on a Chain. Article mentions conflicting...
