That is a sweet version of Boy Racer but it's a bit like a slightly slowed-down Why Don't You Find Out for Yourself. Maybe they felt Southpaw needed more of a corker.
Wholeheartedly agree on Nobody Loves Us -- possibly the greatest b-side of Morrissey's entire solo career.
By the way, since nobody's mentioned it -- cover star Burt Reynolds does an incredible impression of Marlon Brando in the episode of The Twilight Zone pictured. Do yourself a favor and watch it, and discover one of the reasons Brando hated Reynolds to his core until the day he died.

Was shocked just now to see former Brazilian champion and combat sports legend José Aldo listening to Morrissey as he gets ready for his fight...
"I unintentionally invented the condition of being cancelled!"
Fantastic interview. It felt like catching up with Moz after a few years. Credit to Sam for asking a lot of straight-on questions.
Writing with Alain again, yes!
