Yes that Bonfire sleeve was god awful. Almost as bad as the LIHS sleeve with Mando Lopez's son. As soon as I got the CD I flipped over the booklet to show the live pic of Morrissey so I didn't have to look at that kid holding the axe. I was relieved there was an option to buy the deluxe edition.The only thing I am afraid of is that the Bonfire cover does look like it was presented a year ago. It is dreadful . Anyway, Morrissey hasn't had run of luck with album covers lately ( CS and DOG )
Maybe Alain could have a word with Morrissey?Well, Alain just managed to press coloured vinyl, get Spotify placement & sell digital products (with bonuses) on Amazon, Apple et al. - all as a 'smaller' artist with zero huge label backing...
Things are only problems if you see them as such.
I hope so. I honestly think his major label days are over for a number of reasons. However, it seems like he could get a lot done quickly were he willing to work with smaller players. As @FWD pointed out - Alain just did it - so it's there for the taking if he wants it.Why not? even moz changes his mind on things.
His Years Of Refusal are hopefully over... at least when it comes to releasing songs.I hope so. I honestly think his large label days are over for a number of reasons. However, it seems like he could get a lot done quickly were he willing to work with smaller players. As @FWD pointed out - Alain just did it. So it's there for the taking if he wants it.
I agree that it was a ’bitchy’ comment.As bitchy as the comment is , you are 100% correct
It's dumb, it's a personality type that does this= full on beta
There are people all over the world like this, mostly it seems like an American thing.
To some over here, Morrissey is a god. You know, grown adults go on about touching his arm at a gig.
Feel proud that they like to choose to like only what he likes (usually missing the point)
For instance, the reason most of us brits like Kitchen sink, pre Morrissey fandom, is cause its our lives being shown
Americans pretending to be into it, is mostly for fetish wanna be "cool" reasons.
A different thing.
To me it made being friends with any Morrissey fan over there impossible.
Some stalk him and think they are closer to him due to having signed product. Some think because they are given a copy of an lp pre-release it means they are closer to him again etc
Often, artists (and i have known more than a few) do not respect these fans at all, they see them as quarry to plunder for cash or to use to spread their own message
It's really being sad to watch
There a few M/ Smiths Djs "fans" who are even worse than this, they pretend to like M more than they do to puncher the M fanbase for some clout and cash , for likes To me it lacks soul utterly
That said I like this cover, as I love Burt
