Found a clipping on Twitter. not much of a review but it is positive.
Think it's quite common for headline acts to get input into the lineup, particularly who immediately precedes them.I distrust anyone who can't even spell Morrissey.
You seem all too keen when you repeat that chart position as if it's some mantra of comfort and desperate consolation - of sorts - for you. Hmmmmm. How revealing of you that you make no reference whatsoever to the fact that 'California Son' fell out of both the UK Top 100 Albums Chart and the Billboard US Top 200 Albums Chart in less than a month after its release. The phrase "Pyrrhic victory" instantly comes to mind upon reading your self-soothing comments. Let's also not forget that neither of his two solitary UK shows have even sold out yet (ask yer man @Surface about this. He knows so much about these things). A situation that would have been unthinkable for Morrissey once upon a time has now come to pa. Self-sabotage has long been his forte. Recent events and an annoying knack of opening his gob before engaging his brain won't return his lost British fanbase to him. Sad and rather pitiful, but all too inevitable and very much of his own making.Lol.
Again, California Son charted at number 4 in the UK. None of the tracks on that album were written by Morrissey and it still charted at number 4. Click that bloody Wikipedia link and see for yourself that California Son charted at number 4.
Did I mention enough times that California Son charted at number 4?
Wait a minute, Blondie was hugely successful in the 80s, but then they disappeared from the spotlight for such a long time. Perhaps their reunion was one of the least expected due to their age, but definitely nice.Because more if his fans are still agile/alive. Blondie are in their 70's, Morrissey is 60.
How many huge selling albums are you expecting Morrissey to have in the next 14 years?
Ta for this. Here's Mozza's album's stats. 'California Son' only stayed in said chart for not even a month, even though it says 4 weeks.
Maybe there will be record company interest to release new Morrissey music at the occasion of his 70th or 75th birthday, when enough time has passed and the world has forgotten about his stupidities.Nah, it will certainly not be his last. But after three records within 3 years a new album will be a longer wait this time.
2023 or 2024 maybe.
There will always be interest in releasing a new Moz-album, he is a legend.
I think they disappeared due to Chris Stein's illness.Wait a minute, Blondie was hugely successful in the 80s, but then they disappeared from the spotlight for such a long time. Perhaps their reunion was one of the least expected due to their age, but definitely nice.
Morrissey in contrast has always been around as a performing artist, still drawing decent crowds at concerts including younger people.
I don't have to separate anything, he usually seems like a nice guy.Maybe there will be record company interest to release new Morrissey music at the occasion of his 70th or 75th birthday, when enough time has passed and the world has forgotten about his stupidities.
I think 2023 or 2024 s fairly optimistic.
For those willing to separate the music from the man, better to enjoy the musc now, while we still have a chance.
Obviously you were not at any of the last five years worth of UK Concerts then, stupid Anonymous fool.If the album is a success (commercially) then it won't be problem for future record companies. But it seems that the previously Morrissey-friendly radio stations are refusing to play any of the new songs (to date at least) which will reduce its commercial success considerably. Furthermore, about 50-60% of the UK fan-base (for concerts at least) seems to have deserted him, incensed by his decision to publicly and unambiguously endorse a far-right political party, and cheer on the likes of Farage and Robinson.
He needs to issue a statement and retract that support, pretty urgently. He is not a genuinely right-wing person - he was simply drawn in to supporting these clowns (For Britain) because the singer is a gay vegan feminist.
The UK is not the world.Nope, it's just his recording career that's in jeopardy, and his biggest problems are in the UK. He can keep going for years playing live on the nostalgia circuit albeit to smaller crowds than he's been used to. Credit where due, it's impressive that he's been asked to headline the Cruel World festival - there's no way a similar sized festival in the UK would have him top of the bill.
Nope. Never mentioned Blondie charting higher. I did provide the chart facts - which speak clearly for themselves.Gotta be honest. Fucking loving these pointless arguments tonight! I don't know, I'm just in that mood! Anyway...
Who cares how long it was in the charts? Fact is, you said (at least, I think it was you) that Blondie charted higher. It didn't. They both charted at number 4. And, if I'm correct, that's the sixth time I've typed that today! Another fact!
If Morrissey made a left-wing statement saying For Britain is bad and immigration is good, you’d all agree. None of you have opinions, you just agree with Morrissey. Stop pretending otherwise. Also, stop pretending to BE Morrissey. I mean, I’m sure you’re awful, but better to be yourself than pretending to be that insane cunt.
You are correct! My apologies.Blondie have not headlined at Glastonbury
Actually, it was a reference to Patric Doonan, but each to their own chum.Is that a reference to Sylvia Plath? If so, wrong place.
Speaking of Plath, if you or anyone here hasn't read The Journals of, then do. Then read Ted Hughes' Birthday Letters. Just staggering.
