Re: What does this mean?

Morrissey wanted to be like Patti Smith (no. 7) - http://www.clashmusic.com/feature/10-things-you-never-knew-about-patti-smith


The Drums don't want The Smiths to reform, and know Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke quite well now - http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/showbi...h-hell-to-be-better-than-ever-86908-23763053/


James Arlowe covers There Is a Light That Never Goes Out, quite well apparently - http://www.nj.com/entertainment/music/index.ssf/2012/02/james_arlowes_music_may_make_y.html


Punk band The Pioneers shoot a foot-stamping ditty at the world, called My Life as a Morrissey Song -

The picture actually reminds me slightly of this Morrissey photo

- my 'A History of Graphic Design' textbook has a picture of Morrissey (to show magazine layout) and the other night I was reading a book to my daughter (The Secret Show, BBC) and the chapter was called 'There Is A Light That Sometimes Goes Out' - close!

LOVE THAT! The kids wouldn't get it, someone was having a joke! Reminds me of my dad putting 'NUFC are the best' in the Ceefax he was writing. NUFC standing for Newcastle United Football Club, of course.
Brill.

Songs about books:

"Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt," sings Morrissey in Now My Heart Is Full, namechecking and romanticising the gangsters in Graham Greene's Brighton Rock, concluding with characteristic nonchalance: "And I just can't explain so I won't even try." Moz, of course, has always pinned literary references to himself like badges, deepening his work and his connection to his fans.

This Week comparing M and M to C and C (ConDem C**ts) and reporting on Johnny's comment he would reunite The Smiths when the Coalition steps down

Worth watching on I-player cos I'm actually too stoned to remember what just happened.

Come in CrystalGeezer, your skills are required

Johnny is being the Hanged Man, Le Pendu. Imagine if his photo were upside down. The leg. The buttons and badge mimic the coins. Even his hair hangs upside down.

Morrissey is being the Charioteer, he's been aching to drive forever this doesn't surprise me. Though his hands are up as opposed to the blonde crowned figure in the chariot whose hands are down, the window frames mimic the posts of the chariot, the arched entrances of the building outside on the right are doing double duty mimicking the heads of the sphynxes AND the canopy of the chariot, and the fact that he is touching his reflection with whom he wishes to be reunited demonstrates the essential principal of the chariot card in that he is in control of steering his cosmos. That's why he writes many songs about driving and crashing and cars and racing and whatnot, it;s his charioteer dipping into lyricist mode. :p

Re: Johnny Marr in New Statesman portrait feature

Great, the story with The Hanged and The Charioteer made my day!

That Morrissey photo reminded me of a particular scene from an old movie (Jennifer on My Mind) with an addicted girl who walked a balustrade and barely avoided falling. In contrast to her, the guy in the picture seems to even have wings (see the size, reflection and angle of the fingers), so apparently he is ready to fly. But will he?
Well, he wants to fly, but he subconsciously fears having the same fate as Icarus, who made wings out of feathers and wax and attached them to his arms. Icarus has been warned not to fly too close to the sun (which can melt the wax) or to the sea (because the feathers would get wet and heavy). But being a dreamer, he strayed from the right path, so eventually the sun melted his wings, he fell into the sea and drowned. So our hero fears both the sun/fire and the sea/water, because he perceives both elements as dangerous to his life.

Now I know how Joan of Arc felt
as the flames rose to her Roman nose
and her Walkman started to melt

The suns burns through
to the planet's core
and it isn't enough
they (the lazy sunbathers) want more

In a river the colour of lead
immerse the baby's head

Over the moor, take me to the moor

The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town has dragged you down

Reel around the fountain
slap me on the patio

Trudging slowly over wet sand
back to the bench where your clothes were stolen
this is the coastal town

I find a fountain of youth
and I fell in
how could I ever win?

When he awoke
the sea was calm (Girl drowning)

I am a poor, freezingly cold soul,
so far from where I intended to go.
scavenging through life's very constant lows (Seasick, yet still docked)

The presenter ends the show with the line "....Nighty night, don't let Morrissey bite...."
