    Morrissey Central "Elizabeth's birthday" (November 13, 2020)

    wow really great cover! i've seen too many mediocre ones (and FAR too many bad ones), but this is really, really nice. Very fine control of her voice and use of vibrato. cudos to Jan Romina, whoever you are. and, bonus points for looking like you're really enjoying yourself.

    Tim's Twitter Listening Party - "Strangeways, Here We Come" with Stephen Street (Sep. 28, 2020)

    this, exactly, for me as well. first music I ever heard by the Smiths was the opening notes of A Rush and A Push from a cassette my cousin had. It's forever stamped in my mind.

    Alain Whyte & Band: "Tell Me" - 'lockdown' version premiered (August 5, 2020)

    overall...this is not great. - lyrics are shit. - vocal melodies are terrible. - singing is barely ok - why does Gary look so uncomfortable? It's like he left the hanger in his shirt when he put it on - Gannon's guitar is really nice and suits the song well - whoever edited this video is an...

    The Tea Party cover "Everyday Is Like Sunday"

    Who else has Moz dreams?

    had a dream last night whereby I was required to "pinch hit" for Moz at one of his shows. For whatever reason, he decided he didn't want to wear himself out by doing the gig so I was to sing for the entire show. He was there, though. Of course, aside from the opening tune How Soon Is Now...

    Request: tracks from Playboys reissue EMI promo CDr (2013)

    thank you for this FWD! Any chance you can upload the whole cd rip in FLAC (with LOG+CUE)? Thanks in advance! **EDIT** re-reading the thread now, I don't think you have the 4 track promo but the 2 track. ignore my request - I, like you, am looking for the 4 track promo.

    TIL Johnny Marr played guitar on (Nothing But) Flowers - only 30+ years late

    great cover. my only criticism is that it's too good - it adds nothing to the original. one might think it was the talking heads if you weren't as familiar with the finer details of david byrne's voice.

    TIL Johnny Marr played guitar on (Nothing But) Flowers - only 30+ years late

    i almost forgot how great this song was. witty creative lyrics, jaunty bassline, great guitars (now I know why). Just perfection.

    while we're speaking of this, is "whinge" just the british version of the north american word "whine"? how is it pronounced? something i've always wondered...
