      Cosmopolitan was my friend Jon's second Morrissey show. He now owns a few albums but didn't then. Satellite of Love was the only song he knew that night and it blew his mind a little bit. He left after the song because he was so wasted and the night couldn't get any better. Of course he didn't TELL ME THIS until I looked for him for an hour afterward and found him back at the room, but it's funny to think back on that. :p The next day I smashed into another car on the way to the Shrine and broke my radiator and almost blew up my car, worst show ever. From best show to worst show in 24 hours. :D

      Honestly though who's the design consultancy who creates all the Moz artwork now?

      I could do a better job with my hands tied around my back.

      Just as long as he doesn't use an old photo for the new album sleeve. A one-off cover single release doesn't really matter to anyone besides Morrissey himself and collectors.

      Well yes. That'd be a cop out if he did that. It's just a bit shitty seeing the lack of effort in the current re-issues and albums over the past 5 years considering he used to know each typeface and pantone reference during The Smiths. I'm quite hopeful about the new album though. I think he'll put right all that was wrong in 2013. I'm really positive and want the cover art to reflect the quality of music.

      All the recent 'legacy product' {since 2010} has been designed by Darren Evans, the Art Director at EMI, now art director at Universal Music Group. No reason to suspect that 'Satellite of Love' will be any different.

      I quite like the fact that he's used the Penguin Classics typefaces for artist & title lettering. You can't go wrong with Mrs Eaves :)

      funny that the 7 inch cost £2 more than the 12 inch.

      oh Lou! how could you leave us? *rollseyes*

      Morrissey attempts to absorb yet another dead icon into his persona. epicFAIL!

      Maybe he simply liked the song and decided to record a cover of it.

      The 7" is a picture disc, which is why it's more expensive than the 12".

      Yet again more recycled music thrust upon Morrissey's adoring, cash-wielding fan base, available for purchase in multiple formats. Hurry up & buy it NOW! The rent must be due...

      In that case why didn't he release it years ago ? Lou had only been brown-bread for a couple of days (he was still warm) before details emerged of the cash in.
      Very poor taste

      It was clearly a TRIBUTE. That's why it was released at that time. It's not like this was, or was expected to be, some kind of big hit. Plus it's still Lou Reed's song, most of the profits go to his estate. I thought it was genuine and Lou's heart would have been warmed.

      Actually the picture disc is beautiful

      What's your definition of cash in? Royalties from this single go to Lou Reed's state. It's a tribute, you sour piece of crap.

      Indeed. Got it in the mail today, listened to it for the first time (I prefer physical releases for my mental release).

      Sounded quite good actually, close to the Norway concert version. The remaster of "Someone on Your Side" sounds good on the guitars, lots of rough and fuzzy edges, but less so on the bass. The Buzzcocks song was OK, Morrissey obviously can't do the Shelley yelps but the band did a credible impersonation of the Buzzcocks. Guitars could've been slightly clearer/higher in the mix though.

      One thing that did irritate was the sticker with the copy info - you have to tear it in two to get the disc out, which is a shame. The Mael Mix Suedehead disc had a better solution for this.

      Yes with "Morrissey" written all over it ! Could he not have just donated a wedge, anon ?

      "Morrissey does a lot a great work for charity, doesn't like to talk about it" springs to mind.

      I just love the artwork, that is why I am getting both vinyls.

      Cheers Moz
