    New Article about Moz and his career in the early 90s. Nice to read something actually positive.

      "After a string of superb one-off single releases throughout 1989 and 1990, Morrissey began working on Your Arsenal,"

      She totally skipped over mentioning "Kill Uncle."

      Well the problem with this is that it is tainted in having been written by Morrissey's best friend on the payroll. It stinks of diversion from the current controversies. In other words, I wouldn't be surprised if the Genesis of this smoke-blowing was "Hey, Fiona - here's a few quid - go write something to divert and take off the heat for a while. There's a good lass"

      I'll tell you what's going on here. Remember when Boris Johnson was interviewed and he said his favourite hobby was making model London Buses? That was a genius stroke. Because now when someone searches for Boris and Bus they'll get that, rather that the £350 million per week lie on the side of the Brexit bus.

      I see this as the same effort to get a different result when you search for Fiona Dodwell and Morrissey. They're not stupid. Just paid to do a job.

      Yeah, we need to stick to the integrity of real journalism and objective well thought out and insightful pieces such as The Guardian and NME"s articles about random 23 yr old who crossed out his Morrissey tattoo:handfist:

      She was probably told to since she's less journalist and more paid promoter.

      Is there an app you can get that alerts you when something highly disagreeable (in Skinny's world) is posted on this site? If not...then he has undoubtedly got some strange/bizzare/cranky habits.

      True, but that is because they sound almost nothing like they do on the album.

      Most weren't. The band was sloppy as hell, not to mention Boz duckwalking all over like a twat.

      Kill Uncle is mentioned in the article.

      And "Your Arsenal, as a musical project, seemed to be shouting from the rooftops: "I am here. I am staying. I have something to say.""

      This part is bang on. Your Arsenal was the album that confirmed that Morrissey was going to have a solo career when many had written him off.

      Nothing would have pleased me after the Smiths break up. I was too traumatised. Slowly going back and reassessing.

      What upset me was that he didn't have the personnel providing the tunes. I think Morrisseys voice needs an electric guitar providing that. His voice was made for that lovely guitar sound. It melded. He needs a player like Johnny to bring out the best in him. He might think he can sing to anything but he needs that guitar sound again. It's what suits him. Simple guitar playing. No overdrive. Lovely luscious chords. It brings out the best in his voice.
