    The Smiths Official YT: "What Difference Does It Make?" - TOTP '84 (January 20, 2021)

    Ooh. I followed Beethoven with High In School and I Am Not A Chain On A Dog. I think those two albums compliment each other. Tonight will be something by Kraftwerk.

    The Smiths Official YT: "What Difference Does It Make?" - TOTP '84 (January 20, 2021)

    Was that The Smiths cd single reissues? I bought How Soon Is Now, This Charming Man, There Is A Light, 2 different CDs for each. Were there 9 other releases that year? My memory must be a fog full of ghost sailors with hooks.

    The Smiths Official YT: "What Difference Does It Make?" - TOTP '84 (January 20, 2021)

    Right now I'm listening to the '92 Zenith concert on Beethoven Was Deaf vinyl. I've had it since '93. Where did all of the time go?

    The Smiths Official YT: "What Difference Does It Make?" - TOTP '84 (January 20, 2021)

    Yah it's funny. New Order did most of theirs live and it sounded shite, and according to Barney Sumner the single always nosedived off the charts after TOTP. But Moz sings well live and it's a pity the stiff arses in the BBC didn't let the artists decide for themselves. Robert Smith was ordered...

    It is hardly a comment on the Biden inauguration today? People celebrate like mad when there is a new president. And then nothing changes. Although in fairness it is hard not to celebrate the exit of Don Chump and his ridiculous hair-minge (I don't mean his feline faced wife).

    Sylvain Sylvain dies (January 13, 2021)

    That is sad news. I remember seeing Sylvain being very funny, entertaining and friendly with the Dolls when they supported Moz in Dublin in Kilmainham June 28th 2008 for his Greatest Hits tour. He lit up the stage. R.I.P.

    Morrissey Central "IF TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME" (January 5, 2021)

    Would be great if you actually could believe any of the sentiments in that poem. But you'd need a lobotomy first.

    Morrissey Central "Gerry Marsden (1942 - 2021)" (January 4, 2021)

    And another lovely person takes her leave. Moz was a fan of horror films and sci-fi growing up so he would have been very familiar with the Hammer House Of Horror films and stars like Barbara Shelley. R.I.P...

    Morrissey Central "I’M PLAYING EASY TO GET" & "DID YOU SEE THE SAD RICH?" (January 3, 2021)

    Those wailing renditions of b-side quality songs are enough to make a three legged cat throw itself in front of a double decker bus.

    Morrissey Central "An Afternoon Nostalgia" (December 30, 2020)

    Of course the videos of Moz singing WHIWOFBS are ace, especially the Amnesty International clip which I remember watching when it was first broadcast on TV, before Your Arsenal came out. I always thought the drums on that live version were a rip off from Our Frank. I like the Chinese live...

    Robbie Keane discussing Morrissey whilst fishing

    I dunno. I wouldn't fancy a hook in my gob. Or anything in my gob apart from an IPA and some Christmas turkey.

    Morrissey Central "I TRIED LIVING IN THE REAL WORLD" (December 22, 2020)

    You can feel ok when ye get the f*** out of Ireland. That's not ancient history. It's now. It's the same diseased mentality that voted Bore-us Johnstun into power in the first place. If a hard border returns to Ireland there will be blood. But rich English toffs don't care about that. English...

    Morrissey Central "I TRIED LIVING IN THE REAL WORLD" (December 22, 2020)

    Anyone in the UK complaining about the expense of 4 star hotels for immigrants is laughable when you consider the amount of indigenous people England has killed, and how the 'empire' only thrived through massacre and subjugation: Ireland, Australia,etc etc. The final proof of England's bloated...

    Morrissey Central "I TRIED LIVING IN THE REAL WORLD" (December 22, 2020)

    At this point I almost don't care what Moz says or does. In recent years his eyes have been tinged with the haunted/trapped animal look of the paranoid delusional. I know that's a terrible thing to say as a fan. But hasn't anyone noticed the slightly feral look in his eyes? I think Moz is on...
