    Talkhouse podcast: Idles singer wouldn't support Morrissey (May 28, 2020)

    But then how extraordinary that the fellow spends the entire video flashing the well-known white supremacist hand gesture?

    "X's comeback and Morrissey's fall when do we let musicians off the hook for thinking bad thoughts" by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

    "If you're gonna jump then jump" is no more an encouragement than "World peace is none of your business." Morrissey has spoken unambiguously about the latter as a taunt, a provocation, a bit of dark-humored reverse psychology. Nor is this approach remarkably different than his earliest: "Young...

    Louder Than War / Sam Lambeth (2nd review via blog): IANADOAC review 6/10 (March 13, 2020)

    Critic Sam Lambeth writes: "His last collection of original material, Low In High School, focused too much on corrosive guitars and sheets of searing feedback." Which Low in High School is this? And if Lambeth shows he didn’t hear the last album, should we believe he heard this one?

    Mr Demos audio analysis

    Either Tom is demonstrating that the recording is the product of contemporary fakery or he's arguing -- more intriguingly -- that a time travelling Mancunian brought back Audacity to the early '80s. And I'm sorry if Audacity confuses you, but most of us can easily see breaks and repeats --...

    Camden, NJ - BB&T Pavilion (Sep. 9, 2019) post-show

    Against all odds, I caught Jessie's pick -- for my second show in a row. I caught his pick at one of the Broadway shows in May and tonight he flung the wee gnat seemingly zip into my claw. I'm a man whose criminal dexterity almost had me exiled from gym class, banned from bowling, and left to...

    Come to Camden I'll be good

    Camden's BB&T Pavilion has a delirious number of seats still available for next Monday's show -- so why should you consider purchasing one or both of mine? For ONE: they're fairly pleasant seats -- the scenic Sec 102 Row K Seat 19 and the even plusher Sec 101 Row C Seat 5 -- nearly as close as...

    Billy Bragg: “Morrissey has broken the hearts of a lot of people” - The Big Issue (26 June, 2019)

    I used to be so quiet and peaceful on this site but the furious idiocy on display lately have made me vocal. Not only couldn’t you prove the foul silliness you say, you couldn’t repeat it without stumbling over your own random, foggy words. Naturally you don’t have the courage of your...

    Billy Bragg: “Morrissey has broken the hearts of a lot of people” - The Big Issue (26 June, 2019)

    Stop. Please. You're embarrassing yourself. I could be a Muslim scholar. You know so little and you're furiously determined to beat your dead, ignorant horse for us all to see. Retire from self-abasement.

    "Lady Willpower" c/w "Rainbow Valley" - physical single release (available Aug. 23, 2019); artwork

    I wondered the same. While "b/w" ("backed with") is most common for records, apparently "c/w" (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/c/w) is appropriate to denote "combined with" or "coupled with" and is used with 45s and singles.

    Billy Bragg: “Morrissey has broken the hearts of a lot of people” - The Big Issue (26 June, 2019)

    Please Google the Latin denotation "sic." Afterward you'll want to delete your little muddled tantrum. Of course, if you were worried about embarrassing yourself, you would've deleted all your posts by now.

    Billy Bragg: “Morrissey has broken the hearts of a lot of people” - The Big Issue (26 June, 2019)

    You want to have a religious argument; I don't. I think all religions are the antique ravings of failed poets. I don't know if what you say is true and I honestly don't care. The list of atrocities committed for Christianity's Jesus or Judaism's God, or even dear Poo-bear Buddha, is too long...

    Billy Bragg: “Morrissey has broken the hearts of a lot of people” - The Big Issue (26 June, 2019)

    The world is moving toward complexity -- many religions, many ethnic backgrounds, many genders, many languages, many voices, many people sharing power. You will not be a citizen of that world. You will cling to your simple ways and go extinct.
