Interesting but not surprising. It's a pity that his solo songs aren't very good.
I'd say the lyrics are the main problem with solo Alain.
He's sung a few Morrissey/Smiths songs pretty well IMO including this one...
He seems to like playing Morrissey songs live that he didn't co-write, too (like The Loop and Our Frank) and also a handful of Smith songs, so maybe some of those will feature especially with Craig Gannon onboard.I'm guessing live shows will be 50% songs he wrote with Morrissey and 50% his own solo songs and new stuff they write as a band... does that sound right?
