    The Killers may not be quite the nice dudes their band name implies...?

    So, there's all kinds of social media sources for this, linking back to the following pretty horrific 2015 blog post from a female crew member on what has now been revealed to be The Killers road crew in 2009. Everyone in 'Killers Inc Ltd' are panicking to stress that no band member was...

    Morrissey & Julie Christie?

    Quickie ~ Listening to "Autobiography" again, í hear the bit where, after revealing he'd turned down Charlie Richardson's personal invitation to play him in a bio-pic, he reels off in amazement a smattering of the bright stars that have shot across his bow over the years. Alan Bennet, Dick...

    "Everyday is Like Sunday" 1988 promotional film ~ alternate location sound mix

    Apologies if this is generally known about, but í certainly wasn't aware of it, and can find no mention in the relevant 'literature'. This appears to be a version of Tim Broad's promotional film for "Everyday is Like Sunday" with seaside location sound mixed in throughout the film, as well...

    "Ouija Board, Ouija Board" ~ Mary Margaret O'Hara backing vocal?

    í am at that stage in lockdown life where í find myself listening to "Ouija Board, Ouija Board" on a loop... and a question occurs, at least one; is Mary Margaret O'Hara doing the ghostly background vocal after the middle 8. í cannot find any confirmation elsewhere. í know Ms O'Hara features...

    This was posted on The Smiths 'official' YouTube channel this past Thursday. Apologies if this was posted previously, í never saw it. It says it's available in 4K, which is clearly bollocks, as it's BBC videotape which is probably barely HD, let alone UHD. But still a nice clean, 'live'...
