For Morrissey's 40th anniversary show, he will add "I Am Two People", "(To Give) The Reason I Live", and "In Your Lap" to setlist as special attractions, along with an extra pre-show video or two.

Or he'll just cancel the gig.

B-side of staring at the sea cassette, the whole thing.

I love to the sky. I remember finding that gem on a 12" b-side in the early 90's. Got it on cd as a mix by Steve masters in early 90's as well stood out at the time because you couldn't find it anywhere. My morrissey/smiths collection is only rivaled by my cure collection.
"Tim Pope announces he will collaborate with Robert Smith on a documentary on the iconic band."

“The film to which I will bring my own style of jiggery-pokery will use as well as 'old favourites' a cornucopia of material from Robert’s collection which has never been seen before: Super-8; interviews; bootlegs; rare performances; behind-the-scenes, blah.”

"Earlier, Pope tweeted that Smith had sent him a huge stack of archive material, saying: “50 boxes of ‘stuff’ has just arrived at mine. Just peeked and apart from dust they seem to be filled with what looks like films, photographs, memorabilia. They go by the year. Hm. Can’t wait to get cracking, though might take me a while.”"

Heard The Cure's version of The Beatles Hello Goodbye for the first time earlier! Makes me smile!
