    From Morten:

    Iggy played 'Spent The Day In Bed' (at around 19:15) and mentioned that 'Low In High School' includes some of the clearest songs of Morrissey's career. Also mentioned meeting Morrissey: 'Sometimes it's good to talk to people - if they're interesting. I had the chance to talk to him once at work. And he is interesting - Morrissey'

      Say what you like about Morrissey but he's never boring. By work does he mean radio work or music work?

      The Iguana has had love for Moz since back in The Smiths days.
      Forget about what the rest of these rootie toots say.
      If the Iguana says ya good then ya good.

      I’ve driven people to the brink of insanity repeatedly playing The Modern Lovers “I’m Straight.” It’s glorious.

      I didn’t know Ian Dury’s son is in the music business.

      Moz should take a page out of Iggy's playbook and start fresh with entirely new collaborators. Sorry Boz, I know you've been there a while, but it's time to let the fella play with some new friends.
      Iggy was so boring and by the numbers by the time Post-Pop Depression came out that the quality of it was absolutely jarring in a refreshing way. I didn't think he had any good albums left in him, and was so pleasantly surprised.

      Yes! Open call to all musicians who have nothing better to do than play karaoke for a cut-rate lounge act. Must be subservient, have a desire to be pissed on and a penchant for being told which shitty t-shirt to wear. Perks include twigs and berries from craft services and zero commitment to a touring schedule.

      Sounds like a dream.

      But he effectively has, Half of LIHS was written by people other than Tobias/Boorer...

      Hey, Elvis was a bloated pile of pills by the time Suspicious Minds came out, but it's a helluva song. Thankyou Thankyouverahmuch. Maybe Morrissey has something with effort and style left in him, maybe he doesn't.
      Wouldn't hurt to throw some different musicians in the mix and see what turns up. Because there's not an exciting or vital composer in the bunch anymore.

      EDIT: Whoever marked this off topic needs to examine the topic at hand a little better. Elvis. Iggy. Morrissey. Late career swan songs brought about by new blood. It's rather on topic, you just must be dense.

      No, he should stay the course because everything is great the way it is. Never better.

      Notice the illuminati dinosaur in the small picture on the right. Since they never existed they have become a power symbol of oppression denouncing christianity and glorifying evil and misleading the public.

      This year there were even dinosaur led figures among the christmas decorations sold in stores.[​IMG]

      Those in power have a certain way to talk to us through symbols. The film Patti Cakes also displays illuminati symbols a lot but this time I assume it is a homage to Kesha.
