    On the moors
    By David Garrick
    ...Now, after several rescheduled dates, he’s on his way back to Houston for an appearance at White Oak Music Hall. Free Press Houston was more than thrilled to get to talk to the legendary artist about his upcoming return to Houston.

      Our Moz always manages to make interviews interesting
      even though he must have done hundreds.

      Thank you!
      So Moz denies ever being in The Nosebleeds and singing for Slaughter and the Dogs. Who is that mischievous person spreading that fakefact around? o_O

      And, his extreme naivety regarding major labels or DIY (more or less) is doing him no favours, nor his fans, but hey, you never know what can happen. Sometimes the needle in the haystack is found. :)

      Good look showing love to the bulrush crane Moz. We're friends of the feather. Good look showing love to my man James Brown. Do the Turkey step.

      Enjoyed this. :thumb: However the author came off a bit annoying to me...he wanted to stress how exclusive this interview is. I don't think Moz interviews such as this are so rare or that facts on Moz are so sparse...found it self important. Also many of the questions were kind of old ( he's answered questions about Jerry Finn years ago). Still I liked Morrissey's answers.

      I thought that Morrissey singing for The Nosebleeds and Slaughter and the dogs was fact. I dont recall him denying it...anyone remember??

      I liked that he said he liked the "overconfidence" of the major label! Hopefully soon!!;)

      He was in a band with two members of the Nosebleeds plus Billy Duffy which played a gig under the name "Ed Banger and the Nosebleeds". According to Autobiography, though, this band was never supposed to be the Nosebleeds, but it also never had a name. So I guess they may have played the gig using the name as a default. So whether he was actually in the Nosebleeds might be a matter of opinion and interpretation.

      In John Robb's The North Will Rise Again, Morrissey denies ever being in Slaughter and the Dogs. But there seem to be witnesses that say he was, including at least one Dog (Mick Rossi, in I Swear I Was There ). Johnny Rogan claims to have seen a penpal letter where Morrissey talks about going to London for an unsuccessful record company audition with them. It seems to have been very brief, so maybe Morrissey was never officially confirmed as a member of the group, or maybe he has just chosen to edit the episode out of his history, for whatever reason.

      This will sound terribly negative but.... "anything can happen" is less believable when he plays the same songs night after night. He should make an effort to mix things up, and do interesting new versions of old songs etc. The band is capable of way more than they do.

      Gosh, I actually used to think you were quite witty - now you're just ... moronic.
      Time to get off the stage?

      " New versions of old songs ? " Are you taking the piss Acco ?

      I would say re-invention. New Lawnmowers, new songs, new boyfriend etc etc.

      Otherwise I'm afraid it's failed celebrity jungle for our boring old aged Steve.

      'Well, anything could happen' .... which could only mean his version of Browns 'SEX MACHINE' !!! :brows:

      This top of the list, famous journo from the Houston Chronicle or whatever, has the right to ask this very important question at our beloved icon. (For one reason or another I suddenly started to like this phrase, reminder: should not use it too much!)

      We, fans need to be informed, and guess what, though reluctantly, he had to admit he was doing very well.
      Informative! To the point! Although I had the feeling the journo was slightly disappointed he couldn't say, pope of mope or miserable, depressing poet from Stretford, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

      Oi, Pinelopi, did you see:)))? Even gelato and the barber aren't always mentioned. Well, they were mentioned in that disgusting book... I'll never forgive.
