MESSAGES FROM MORRISSEY on MORRISSEY CENTRAL
Yes, everyone's right. Happiness is happening/the dragons have been bled : )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.
You must not tamper with arrangements!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.
I think it's great shes touring, and im genuinely happy tickets are selling. Lets hope she sticks to shouting about sex positivity and ageism, rather than encouraging her audience to invest in non fungible tokens -which, if we're being frank, is likely the reason she's having to get back on the road iykykMadonna's touring again soon, and I heard a commentator recall how people were dismissing her as a granny in the 90s. Looks like she may have the last laugh.
Thanks! No, I've been into Morrissey since I was little, but when that album came out I was pretty blown away by its sound, especially the song Istanbul! Yeah, watching the recent Joe Chiccarelli interview on this page, I'd agree that the sound of World Peace is indeed cinematic, and he did an Amazing job making it sound that way! Have a good day!Did you get into M around that time ?
I quite like the LP but first time I heard anyone say it's their fave. Good luck to you mate .
I was just thinking when this lp came out things at first we're still pretty good in M world .
Big audience , his autobiography was well revived .
A week after it came out things got sticky .
As we never tire, UTTERLY TIRE, of pointing out, there is no reason at all for the tracks on BOT to never see the light of day.You could have a point. Every album deal is such a slog that takes years and ends in calamity. I wouldn't blame Moz for washing his hands of it. Of course the self-release option might eventually become more palatable to him but I doubt it.
This from just weeks ago: "I write these words mainly for (but not directly about) my audience - who are the best and most incredible audience that anyone could dream of, and perhaps many onlookers are jealous of this fact." - https://www.morrisseycentral.com/messagesfrommorrissey/page/2I think you might be confusing Morrissey for Chris Martin. When has he ever said anything like that in the past 40 years?
It is curious that a lot of people on here get angry because Morrissey is not what they want him to be; yet they originally liked Morrissey because he was different to everyone else.
Swap the order around, drop Kiss Me A Lot in favor of Julie In The Weeds and I’d say it’d be his 4th best behind Ringleader, Viva Hate and Vauxhall. Very strong set of songs on that bonus disc.If WPINOYB tracklist was:
I'm not a man
Kiss me a lot
Drag the river
Would it be 2nd best solo album after Vauxhall?
That sounds really nice and all, but to me it’s just (modern day) Morrissey being cruel and weirdly insulting. He used to champion these people.But that accurately reflects how society views them: as refuse to be swept away. Cynicism is the only serious response to the cruelties & unfairness of life.
