MESSAGES FROM MORRISSEY on MORRISSEY CENTRAL
Chris Laurence played string bass on Morrissey's track "He Knows I'd Love To See Him."
I love Felt, but I’ve never heard Morrissey mention anything about them or Lawrence. But, go listen to “Penelope Tree,” then listen to Johnny Marr’s “European Me” and tell me they’re not totally similar!Anyone know if Morrissey knew Lawrence from Felt ??, and if he ever said anything??
Maybe the author got the info from PJLM, where it also states that session musician Danny Thompson played double bass, but his input wasn't credited anywhere.According to 'Mozipedia' it was a session player called Danny Thompson - maybe that's what's being corrected?
Reason 1 - he’s being chased up for money and credits
Reason 2 - he’s chasing up 30 years of undocumented admin
Reason 3 - when the world is in flames keep it boring
Reason 4 - credit where credit’s due and quite rightly because it’s a tender and crisp piece of artistry.
In no particular order.
Edit- Morrissey in the Toilet / HKILTSH…. There could be a rhythm and rhyme here
Lawrence has mentioned Morrissey a few times .I’m pretty sure Marr cited Felt as a bit of an influence. Not sure they knew each other or Moz
Thank you. I read that the guitars in Felt have a similar style to Johnny and that for many Felt is superior to S. miths. Someone here put the video of primitive painters and I was surprised that I liked it very much and Lawrence with his personality impacted me, then I looked for him and saw that he has a sad history and that he is a good person is much lonelier than Morrissey weirder and took me love, so I wanted to know if Moz knew him, if I help him. Thank you, I will listen to the albumsI love Felt, but I’ve never heard Morrissey mention anything about them or Lawrence. But, go listen to “Penelope Tree,” then listen to Johnny Marr’s “European Me” and tell me they’re not totally similar!
