    Leeds - First Direct Arena (Mar. 6, 2020) post-show

    My immediate observations- Three new songs played- Jim Jim Falls (electronic and catchy, but with pretty unimaginative “please commit suicide” lyrics) and Once I Saw the River Clean (lyrics much more intriguing, references to a road in Manchester and an Irish grandmother). Only other new song...

    Leeds - First Direct Arena (Mar. 6, 2020) post-show

    Just got back- can confirm this is correct, the unknown song was (I believe) Once I Saw the River Clean.

    "Bobby, Don't You Think They Know?" release (Jan. 10, 2020); album sleeve revealed?

    Like much of California Son, it's so overly bombastic, ridiculous, hilariously camp and cheesy (sax solo and all) that I sorta love it. That's not at all what I (or anyone) first listened to Morrissey for, but at least he's embracing the melodramatic old queen that he's become. Though Thelma...

    The Irish Times: Ezra Furman interview - Morrissey mentions (31 Aug., 2019)

    No problemo. If you want to explore further, any of the last four albums are all superb but to provide a brief overview- Day of the Dog- Supposedly intended as Ezra's last album, but instead became the one that launched their career in the UK. Mostly shorter tracks, great fun and lots of...

    The Irish Times: Ezra Furman interview - Morrissey mentions (31 Aug., 2019)

    Reasonable as always- Ezra Furman is, in my opinion, one of the greatest musical artists of the last decade. Think a combination of Lou Reed, Dylan and Spingsteen with added gender fluidity.

    Strange/unexpected Moz references?

    A Smiths song title presumably provided the inspiration for the headline of this article on Oswald Mosley's inclusion in the latest season of Peaky Blinders- This Charming Monster (no other reference to Morrissey within the article, if you were curious)

    Morrissey Central: "Monroe and Morrissey" & "Iggy and Morrissey" (7 August, 2019)

    Who knew Marilyn Monroe was 10ft tall? I’m also a tad concerned about where Morrissey’s left hand is heading...

    Johnny - I don't think that's really a surprise that I would disagree with what Morrissey's saying

    Or even more recent- the lead single from CS literally has Moz asking a man called Bill to marry him!

    Is this what Morrissey was getting at?

    For what it's worth, Stormzy has since apologised- https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/nov/22/stormzy-apologises-for-unearthed-homophobic-tweets (linking to Moz's favourite website just for the lolz)

    Missing albums on Spotify/Apple?

    Quarry, Ringleader and Refusal all removed from Apple Music for me (UK) as well- any ideas as to why? Swords and Maladjusted (reissue) are still available though, along with all the other reissues of recent years.

    Shaun Duggan with Morrissey letter and photos- Segment in The People’s History of LGBTQ Britain

    Watching the second episode of Prejudice and Pride: A People’s History of LGBTQ Britain (originally broadcast in 2017, but available again for 22 days on iPlayer), was pleasantly surprised to find an extensive segment on the writer Shaun Duggan and his connection to Morrissey...
