      His parents popped out babies in a poop-hole and now those babies have their hands full. The burden is on them. The world only becomes a worse place to live in. His parents screwed him over and wanted people to congratulate them.

      In other words, it's fucking shite.
      The music is shite.
      The artwork is shite.
      The lyrics are blunt and disingenuous at best.

      Have people seriously forgotten how brilliant Morrissey used to be? And I mean Morrissey as a solo artist, not The Smiths, before the usual suspects jump on this post, which I expect they will anyway.

      Yes, I am a Morrissey fan, and a huge Smiths fan, and an obsessive collector, I am all of these things.
      And this is exactly why it bothers me so much, it's because I care, not because I hate him.

      I will be many things, but I won't be a Morrissey apologist. Any artist has disappointing phases that you might not like. But some people will. I don't even know if I can say it's shit, because art is subjective to the individual. I can say that I think he's been steadily losing what I value in his music since Years of Refusal. I can hear it in a handful of songs since then, but it's a small handful.

      don't know how you define 'stayed true to their roots' but Penny here must be in his late 50's... :thumb:

      Well, The Subhumans, Doom and Chaos UK are still doing it. Along with many others I can't bring to mind right now.

      Now, I do love the sleeve of that record!

      I first heard that album about 15 years ago. Back then a group of Jobriath fans were trading bootleg CDs ripped from vinyl as they weren’t commercially available. Was never into folk back then. I think if I listened again now it would appeal a lot more.

      Well I think people are also taking his suggestion for his friends to stop watching the news as never watch the news again. I took it as stop watching the news call out of work and spend the day in bed. As if it's a suggestion for a break. I mean he chose Larry king to give his one interview to so he must be aware of and have watched some news. People are very sensitive to the whole fake news campaign right now and I think some are upset here because of it

      That's probably the most honest and fairest assessment I've seen here on solo

      There was no place for "but ears" under "for the man who has nothing". :)
      But they (or he?) decided to let it stay there for some mysterious reasons. A hasty job, probably.
      What about the " man "?
      It's not for a woman who has nothing? :eek:
      You're gonna get in trouble for this Moz.
      It should have been a gender-neutral word. :o

      the album is so-so. This song 'RUBBER BRICKS' was released 1969 as a single only, the b-side 'PRISON WALLS', the band soon after broke up... and Jobriath went solo. 'Rubber Bricks' my favorite of the Pidgeon songs and to me points to what he will do as a solo artist.

      Blood is thicker than water with those Irish roots.
      Family comes first? :o

      So apparently it is the first 1000 UK orders that receive the artwork... Which is definitely just art work.

      I admit, I was being fairly sarcastic, having watched the members of my sizable local punk community age and mellow, and fall into the system one by one. One of the most window smashing, protesting, all around up-the-ass-of-the-establishment punks I know turned into a real estate agent in a suit, for crying out loud. 2 kids, minivan, the works. I know there are a few bands out there still holding what's left of the torch. :)

      Why the fuck would anyone want that shit? The artwork I mean not the music.
    16. Girlmostlikely
      I absolutely agree. I like the birds and the shopping cart. Without the sign it would be rather artistic.
      The sign reminds me of something you would see on a baby's bib.

      So this is the artwork for royalists.

      Very cute kid. He already is a star, he will be a super star.

      He moves in passive aggressive ways. I want a sign too.

      It's definitely a Molina photo.
