    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    I think it's really an "open letter" to the music press in an attempt to garner coverage for Morrissey. Right now there are no upcoming shows, no record contract, and no release date for an album. In other words, no reason for the press to discuss or mention him at all. We'll see if he gets...

    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    Maybe he could do that... but why? The Smiths are equally his and he's proud of what they accomplished, why should that be some off-limits topic?

    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    I'm not clear on that either... is Moz mad because Johnny gets asked questions about The Smiths and he sometimes gets mentioned in the answer? Is he mad that Johnny said of all the people he worked with Morrissey's the only he doesn't get on with now? A true statement but maybe he took offense?

    Low In High School is underrated

    I would add Camden to the list of great songs... and America, I Like You and You Know I Couldn't Last to the list of very good songs on YATQ.

    Low In High School is underrated

    Agreed, probably not above WPINOYB +bonus tracks but I would rank Kill Uncle above LIHS.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Death of a Disco Dancer"

    That's something I'm curious about. I seem to recall back when I first read books about The Smiths in the early 90s that the perception was that the Strangeways recording sessions were tense and even the title "Strangeways, Here We Come" was an acknowledgment of that (yes, I know Strangeways is...

    The Smiths A-Z: "The Draize Train"

    It doesn't prove that at all. It's one track and not by standard Johnny's best. Why would you suggest that all of Johnny's abilities are summed up in this one track? I prefer the Rank version... seems like a fun song for the band to rock out on live.

    Low In High School is underrated

    I was at one of those shows where he played 7/8 songs from LIHS and it wasn't even out yet... totally lost the crowd except for Spent the Day in Bed.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Death of a Disco Dancer"

    A powerhouse track that showcases how much they grew in their 4 years together. All I can think when I hear this is where would they have gone next? We'll never know... but it would have been an amazing journey. 10/10 As to what the song is about, I've had many discussions over the years...

    Minor Smiths mention in "Depeche Mode 101" review

    It seems by 1986 with Ask and then the videos for Girlfriend... and Stop Me... there was at least a reluctant acceptance that music videos were a necessary evil - unless they wanted to miss out on all the exposure that MTV could provide. EDIT: They made a video for This Charming Man... did...

    Minor Smiths mention in "Depeche Mode 101" review

    Yeah, it was mainly the videos for Ask, Girlfriend... and Stop Me... from what I recall.

    Express: "The Smiths split ‘bruised me emotionally, it turned to s*** with Morrissey’ – Johnny Marr" via Uncut Magazine (January 13, 2022)

    An insightful take on how Johnny vs Morrissey processed the split. With Johnny being all of 24 at the time... I would not be at all surprised if he has regrets about how he handled things. For example, did he really want to permanently end The Smiths, or was he really just seeking a...

    Minor Smiths mention in "Depeche Mode 101" review

    Wow, I don't remember a US version of TOTPs... I would have watched for sure. I do recall DM on the MTV music awards in 1988... found the clip: Yeah, I don't think The Smiths were ever on US TV... unless you count 120 Minutes. It's true the music landscape in the US had really changed...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Death at One's Elbow"

    The run of 10/10 songs had to end I suppose. Not awful. just not that good. Seems like Johnny didn't give Moz much to work with, and so there's not much here. Maybe better placed as a B-side than an album track? I'll admit it falls victim to extremely high and maybe unfair expectations... as...
