      I know I'm supposed to be manually deleting myself from this website (and I am!) but thought I'd pop in to say that I think that this IS fantastic. Meet me in rainbow valley, Steve, i'll treat you to an vegan ice-cream cone. xo

      I'm excited to hear Morrissey's interpretation of this song. It's probably not the easiest song to cover. It's very dramatic and cheerful. I'm thrilled. Then agan, I'm easily thrilled these days.

      Why does it say c/w on the cover? Shouldn’t it be b/w?

      I wondered the same. While "b/w" ("backed with") is most common for records, apparently "c/w" (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/c/w) is appropriate to denote "combined with" or "coupled with" and is used with 45s and singles.

      Oh I dunno. Thats not MY job.

      My wheelhouse is strictly political revolution. How we carry it out and how we scale the narrative. Feed the world!

      None of these CS releases are cohesive at all. Bad crops and horrendous typography. SER continues to add more tar to the previous artfulness/thoughtfulness of his uncle. I just got a flashback of the KMAL video and i am still not sure who the f*ck approved that.

      The image they’ve used is very Smithsy, but the rest of it, kin’ell, that must’ve took all of 90 seconds to knock up on Microsoft Paint. Moz must sign off on these sleeves, surely? In which case I’m sure he’s trolling us with these fonts & whatnot. Unless he just doesn’t care anymore?

      HAHA SO TRUE-

      ADD IN FOR ME:

      AND AFTER THAT, I SEE THE FONT USED ON THE SLEEVE AND I WONDER IF MORRISSEY IS ATTEMPTING TO DO IT HIMSELF ON HIS HOME COMPUTER, BECAUSE HE JUST LEARNED HOW TO USE THE FREE VERSION OF PHOTOSHOP. IN ORDER TO SAVE A FEW NICKELS OF COURSE, BUT ALSO BECAUSE MORRISSEY BEING CLUE LESS ABOUT TECHNOLOGY ACTUALLY THINKS IT LOOKS GOOD. I MEAN, HAVE YOU SEEN THE
      OUTFITS THIS GUY HAS BEEN SPORTING RECENTLY?
      (SPOKEN IN A SING-SONG HIGH VOICE):
      “SOMEONE’S STUCK IN THE 60’s & 70’s"

      (P.S. THE LOCKED CAPS WERE ON PURPOSE, IN THEM I VENTED MY LOATHING FOR HOW BAD THE FONT’S HAVE BEEN ON EVERY SINGLE THING MOZ HAS PUT OUT SINCE RINGLEADER)

      Should be a fun one to hear Moz cover.
      Might be the other one that LP was on.
