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

      I dunno. I thought Moz was a skinflint who wouldn't pay for his own funeral. I'm hoping to get a few troll votes for this.

      There might be one consolation: The Smiths would have turned into a shit band if they'd kept going. Moz's voice and look only got better but Marr's output has been very patchy. I'd say they had one more great album in them. Anyway we can't complain: Moz gave us Viva Hate, Arsenal, Vauxhall, Quarry, and Ringleader and a suitcase load of great singles.

      Yah. Moz's voice was ok but not great on that video and the band were crap until Arsenal. Moz looked amazing on the Kill Uncle tour. I was at in it Dublin and will never forget it. Hearing 'My Love Life' for the first time was magical. I don't think it had been released yet.

      I bought it on release day up in Skellefteå in Sweden on release day as me and my mother and my grandfather were there visiting family on my mothers side. My grandmother passed away on the morning of Midsummers Eve a month earlier and I remember my grandfather being with me in the store when I bought the cd.

      Feels like yesterday when you think back to memories of old. The Skellefteå music festival ironically named Trästocksfestivalen (witty translation of Woodstock into swedish) had a general that was a huge Morrissey and Man United fan.

      Ringleader?
      A ‘twat’ like Chuck Berry?

      I think those very early post Smiths days were his best. Seems so naive looking back. I know very well how I got my name. When13yrs old, who dyed his hair gold. Oh I know very well, I don't need to be told. You think you were my first love but you're wrong. You were the only one... who's come and gone.

      Really? Live At Dallas is the only Morrissey DVD I ever watched only once, because it's just awful. Awful video quality, awful quality of the band. Alain and the lads got much better when they were playing stuff they had written (anything from Pregnant For the Last Time onwards), but they butchered the good songs from Kill Uncle, and butchered everything else that came before Kill Uncle, even when they got better playing as a band.

      Your Arsenal did only get to number 4, which seems astonishing now as it is clearly Morrissey's best solo album.

      Viva Hate, Vauxhall & Ringleader all reached number 1.

      You spelt ‘arguably’ incorrectly. Again.

      A pointless exercise. Who celebrates a 27 year old release? 20, 25, 30 etc. It's a distraction. An attempt to get some good press from past glories. Trouble is .... he had Dodwell write it - the brownest tongue in all of show business. Next his granny will be selling t-shirts at upcoming shows. Nonsense.

      Just to add if someone was unsure, I bought it on RELEASE DAY.

      LOL

      I slept for 14 hours so I have energy to type it over and over again.

      You have to admit that the barrel-scraping being done by the Guardian is becoming tiresome as that dog has been beaten...over and over, again...don't you think that even the Liberal Brits they aim to jerk off are becoming bored with the same old story being trotted-out....Morrissey cost Jonze his job at NME...just admit that this is all a revenge plot.....

      Erm, yes? Chuck Berry was the R. Kelly of his day.

      "1959 Berry was arrested for taking a 14-year-old girl, Janice Escalanti, across state lines for “immoral purposes”, a crime for which he eventually served two years in prison. But that was almost 60 years ago, some might say: different time, different morals! Well, kinda.

      That he was then accused of installing a video camera in the ladies’ toilet of his Missouri restaurant is less easy to jazz hands away, given that it happened in the not distant year of 1989. After tapes from this camera were found in Berry’s home, he was given a suspended sentence and settled a class action with 59 women.

      And Boz duck-walking like a twat in the background nearly ruined Morrissey's Johnny Carson performance. It made them look like a pub band. I find it embarrassing to watch.

      I was watching a documentary recently, I think it was about Buddy Holly and The Crickets, where one of the members talked about how there was tension between the rhythm guitarist and the rest of the band because he was duck-walking on stage during performances which they felt made them look like amateurs and rip-offs. Boz attempting it had the same effect, not helped by the fact that he wasn't the least bit smooth or graceful in doing the move.

      No, an upstanding gentleman like Chuck Berry - who filmed women sitting on the toilet and fucked 14 year olds.

      Yeah, Berry was a twat.

      There is that footage of Boz landing flat on his ass while attempting it that is pretty great. (and likely the last straw for Morrissey) The whole rockabilly greaser schtick was embarrassing and amateur to the extreme. Style over substance, and far removed from the dignity of The Smiths.

      You should be happy now though............they all stand as still as statues. Gigs are about as exciting as taking a packet of codeine.

      What do you think Shakespear's Sister or Nowhere Fast or Vicar in a Tutu were? You absolute tard. Rockabilly and the fifties aesthtic were always part of the Smiths ...........Twat.
