Sun shines for Morrissey and Visconti
Irish Independent - 9 hours ago
"Panic on the streets of London/ Panic on the streets of Birmingham," sang Morrissey on the Smiths classic 'Panic'. But while rioting swept the UK last week, I can reveal the Manchester singer was in a Dublin studio working with legendary David Bowie ...
Has anyone read this article before it was removed- and what did it say? Thanks

I figured the producer would be Visconti. Morrissey said that he wanted to work with him again, and Boz recently had that facebook picture with Visconti. It looks like that's who it's going to be.

They were filming a session in Temple Bar (Sun Studios I think) for a new MTV show.
Studio In Session will be shown later this year or early next.
By Walter Ego:
It's a new show where an artist films a session with a favourite producer...

Morrissey & Visconti & MTV - Banjaxer
"Panic on the streets of London/ Panic on the streets of Birmingham," sang Morrissey on The Smiths classic 'Panic'.
But while rioting swept the UK last week, I can reveal the Manchester singer was in a Dublin studio working with legendary David Bowie producer Tony Visconti.
Sun Studios in Temple Bar was the setting for the session which was filmed for a new MTV series called Studio In Session.
The programme will feature top names in recording sessions with their favourite producers.
It was a shock for studio bosses at Sun to get the call to say Mozza was on the way.
"All Morrissey asked for was a dressing room with a mirror and a chair. It was pretty cramped in the studio between his backing band and the MTV crew," said a studio source.
However, Tony Visconti had difficulty locating Sun Studios, calling instead at the near-by Sound Recording Training Centre.
A young sound engineer was given the task of guiding the producer responsible for David Bowie's seminal 1977 Low album to the right studio.
But MTV could have saved a few bob by not hiring Visconti, responsible for Morrissey's 2006 Ringleader Of The Tormentors album, for the session.
Because also working in Sun all last week was The Smiths producer Stephen Street with local outfit The Vagabonds. But it was Waterford band Propeller Palms, recording their debut album in the same facility, whose tunes impressed everybody, we hear.
