MESSAGES FROM MORRISSEY on MORRISSEY CENTRAL
The writing's on the wall = the end?
I reckon Without Music might be Morrissey's last studio album. Sad, as that might be.
And BOT will remain Moz's 'lost', unreleased album. The subject of the title track was a subject too far.
Very true. Has to be said tho, whoever took that pic* got no help from the wall.Oui! Le jeune Sam est ce que nous appelons un «retard» en Angleterre et possède des compétences de Photoshop de très bas niveau. Comme vous pouvez le voir, pas saisi les principes de base de la perspective ou de la profondeur (ou de l'angle, d'ailleurs).
Good times and fantastic recordings in France, Moz & band.
Please, post pictures!
Pictures indeed. If Rayner is there in the capacity of photographer, then hopefully he will document the recording & living of the process like Dominique Tarlé photographed the Rolling Stones at Villa Nellcôte in the early 70s, during what Chrissie Hynde called their "elegantly wasted" period. Morrissey is now in what someone on here has aptly called his "Sunset Boulevard" period—equally as fascinating as the Stones at their most decadent.
Let us see the (alleged) daily haircuts, with Morrissey and Whyte reclining next to each other in barber chairs, lathered up for a shave. The vegan feasts, the glasses of expensive champagne and empty bottles of Corona, the vanilla candles, and the mysterious black curtain in the vocal booth where Morrissey pulls his disappearing act. And of course, to confirm Malarkey's suspicions: Morrissey seated at a laptop wearing a puzzled expression as he attempts to open an internet browser.
They were claiming he was in his Sunset Boulevard phase before Quarry.
Irish blood, English heart, Salford balls; this [a]Morrissey[/a] is made of. Abandoned by his public, dropped by his record label, proven unloveable at last, how fitting – how quintessentially Steven Patrick – it would have been for him to simply wither away; the reclusive faded star bemoaning...www.nme.com
They certainly jumped the gun on that one; that was wishful thinking on the NME's part. This time I think it really is an isolated and delusional period for him, from which I doubt he'll ever emerge. It was when he said almond milk was outpacing dairy milk that I worried for his grip on reality. I could be wrong. I think he'll continue making music, though. He may even drop his antiquated fixation on record labels and self-release. Norma Desmond was working on her Salome project. All she needed was to ditch her antiquated fixation on the studio system and make it an independent production.
I think he's recovering.
He shouldn't self-release - it's not his skill set - but it's good that he's recording, touring & is reaching out to friends & mainstream journalists.
With a bit of groundwork it should be fine.
The line is from the Book of Daniel. It has entered into the language. If you say the writing is on the wall for someone -- it means it is over for them, their days are numbered.I m guessing the title is in quotes because it refers to a line in the song fill your heart on Bowies Hunky Dory LP (the only song not written by him),
Ah but will he document another vanishing à la Agatha Christie, when nobody knew where M was for a couple of days, least of all M himself?If Rayner is there in the capacity of photographer, then hopefully he will document the recording & living of the process
I was responding to the comment that it's a quote from a David Bowie song. Of course it's simply just a joke that the writing remains literally on a wall - three record companies later. Any secondary meaning is in the eye/mind of the beholder. As always.It's a joke - the writing is literally on a wall.
