    The original Decibelle recording. Brings back so many memories. Thanks to Philipe Delcloque, one of the many unsung heroes of the late 70's, early 80's Manchester music scene.

      You're right, it definitely does. Good call.

      Undoubtedly it is similar,’ confirms Marr, ‘because that’s how I play piano, I can’t play it any other way. That was another one worked out on the upright I inherited when I moved into the house in Bowdon, the same piano I wrote “Oscillate Wildly” on. It had a pleasingly eerie quality about it. You could only play certain things on it. Weird, doomy music, which suited us fine.’"


      How very dramatic.:drama:

      He didnt inherit the piano, it belonged in Shelly's house where he rented a bedroom, he was friends with her son.

      The piano pat at the end adds another layer of sadness, desolation and gloom to the lyrical content of the song. Not sure that the song needed that.
      Anyway, I am glad that the idea was saved to resurface later as one of the darkest Smiths songs.

      It's actually what would become the piano part from Meat is Murder. Listen closely.

      I will take your word for it.. if i ever revisit the book i will either quote the passage of which i was thinking or just realize i am not remembering it clearly - which i fully admit is possible maybe even probable.

      that said, i dare say that he seems to have sided more with moz re: the court case, specifically the contract.

      i am so glad you posted this, i knew i remembered something along those lines ... this must have been it.. thanks
    9. Devoted101
      i read the posted "spoiler" and it sounds like that i was basically remembering correctly.. unless again i misunderstood something
