Article: Morrissey interview in B92 (Serbian); recording new album in Feb. mentioned (update: full i

UPDATE Dec. 10:

Vladimir Skočajić has provided the original English replies in the comments:

Here it is the whole interview with Moz, no editing. I've received his answers on December 3rd.

Excerpt:

Q: When you make a list of set lists for the concert, how do you choose songs from your rich catalogue? How often you are changing set lists? Is it each night different or it’s almost the same list throughout your tour?
A: There’s no point considering what people might want to hear, so I just please myself … which means at least one person is definitely happy.
In fact, I often find that the choice of songs doesn’t really matter … people are always responsive.

...

Q: Money seems to be more important than ever today. Next to sex, it is probably the major fuel of moving the planet Earth. Was it like that when you were a kid? Do you think something has changed, and if so, what?
A: We are told that sex is everywhere for everyone and very, very available, but I don’t ever see it in actuality. It’s promised, yes, but always withdrawn, and that’s what life seems to be about … teasing people. Yes, people are obsessed with money, but the world is also obsessed with space travel and there’s no vague evidence that space travel will be of any remote benefit to the human race. The moon has absolutely nothing to offer. So why do people get so excited about it?

Q: You recorded “Interlude” with Siouxsie. How was that experience for you?
A: It was OK, but she didn’t want to become friends, and she made that very plain from the start. I thought she sang very well.

Q: Have you heard the two new tracks from David Bowie, or maybe his last album, and what’s your opinion?
A: I heard the very first single, and I was pleased for him … that he was still healthy and he was singing.
Tony Visconti (Bowie’s producer) had told me that David no longer had any interest in songwriting or singing, and that David was very unhappy and did nothing but stay in his apartment every day eating meatballs … which sounded terrible. So I was surprised when a new album jumped out, but I didn’t listen to it because I thought the art-work was horrific.
...
Q: Although you recently recorded a new album, do you have plans for a future album?
A: Yes. We have written a new album and we’d like to record it in February.

Q: Do you often get zero questions about the Smiths in the interviews?
A: There’s nothing left to say about the Smiths. It’s all been said. People no longer ask.

Yes, just the other day I told my mother she was straight as a pin as she has never shown any sexual interest in the same sex. Same as Moz. And don't tell me those Tina excerpts amount to sexual attraction. Please.

As long as you play fair and label straights as such and gays as such...fine. It's all about balance.

I never mentioned Tina nor Morrissey's sexuality. I was merely seeing if you were an equal-opportunity-sexuality-pointer-outter.

Let's not go reading into things now.

Yes, I spare no one the labelling gun. :D

Don't forget "Kid's A Looker". Wonder what the Boz-speak code for that one is?

A new album is the only way out of the current impasse. Let's hope capitalist music entrepreneur Morrissey, and the label he licenses his next album to, agree a marketing/promotional budget split before releasing it! If he wants to pay 'payola' to get mainstream airplay then that's also to be discussed in the contract negotiations. Otherwise we'll have more T-Shirts saying "f*** ***** Records".

WPINYB was an excellent album but it's now dead in the water, and all but the cult are either bored or LOL at him blaming Harvest. What next? T-shirts dissing Italian venues because Morrissey was too lazy to Google them before signing a contract to play there? A new album of equal or superior quality, if successful, would re-ignite interest in WPINOYB. He could always record his band's versions ye olde Smiths classics if he wants to reach a large Herd Culture audience. He plays them onstage to draw in the punters, so why not on an album?

Thanks for the full interview, anonymous.
Moz says he would 'like' to record the new album in February, and 'like' is not the same as 'will', but it is definitely a positive sign. A record deal must be imminent.

I didn't like but was not surprised by his comment about not considering what people want to hear. We are his audience and we keep him in chips and crisps, so while he should never whore himself for us we should be a consideration in the back of his mind when it comes to song choices for concerts. To squander 3 minutes on mush like 'I didn't know what to do' when he could have done a song like 'you're the one for me, fatty' or 'last of the famous' is mind boggling. I'm not complaining, but he owes us his living. That's a sad fact widely known.
p.s. his concert in Dublin was amazing. Would have been even more amazing if he sang for longer than an hour 10 mins or whatever the cookie-cutter duration is.



He never has done a show very much longer than that. Last month George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic gave me a 3 1/2 hour show, and he is in his 70s.
