    Morrissey A-Z: "Never Again Will I Be a Twin"

    U2 meet Blondie on a bad day. His search for new musical ways maybe interesting for some but "0h, not for me. Not for me". Nothing that I dig out to play more than once a year (or less).

    Morrissey A-Z: (The) National Front Disco

    A song like TNFD made me an enthusiast. The hook is irresistible and the way Morrissey sings this kitchen sink drama is just one heartfelt sing-a-long for the die-hards. The lyrics are on the razors edge but Morrissey knew exactly war he did in 1992 and he knew, that some would misunderstand it...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Dagenham Dave"

    Sheer "Hammerhead Pop" as Q wrote in 95. I love it, love it, love it. Great production by Lillywhite.

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love, I'd Do Anything for You"

    Romper Stomper, it was. Live.

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love, I'd Do Anything for You"

    Skipping the opener is crass.

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love, I'd Do Anything for You"

    Sorry, you are not the holy Hoffman board and there always should be a chair left for "Kiss me a lot" to rest it's monstrous, unsexy body, you know?

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love, I'd Do Anything for You"

    Well, it was really the first live performance of the song and with all the adrenaline I felt that night, the memory is of course somewhat subjective. I also didn't remember that the shrill trumpet was real. Still, there's something gruff about "Glamorous Glue" paired with ROTT's opener (as...

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love, I'd Do Anything for You"

    I was very impressed, when I was lucky enough to be at the ARTE LIVE concert in Berlin in October 2017 and Morrissey presented this piece as a premiere. It came across as incredibly powerful with the synthesizer trombones and also sounded a bit like massive glam and 70s James Bond...

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love Life"

    No, it was 91, not 69.

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love Life"

    I hear it the same way as @BookishBoy. All the ingridiencies together make for an irresistible Morrissey single. Chrissie Hynde knows how to blend her voice with Morrissey's in a wonderful way. Another unsung classic with Nevin, Paresi and Bedders. Morrissey, looking gorgeous in the video...

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Life Is a Succession of People Saying Goodbye"

    Wonderful B-side after the Sabbatical, which is also convincing in it's demo form from the Cherokee Sessions. The piece sounds as if a deep dream has been poured into music, of course not without the usual world-weariness and "my fate is the hardest to bear" habitus (which we all like so much).

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Insatiable One"

    I never had the impression Whyte & Co played it substandard. Never. And I didn't compare Butler's playing with Boz n Alain's. It sounds good and pretty authentic to me.

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Insatiable One"

    Thanks from the heart of my bottom, Baz. I thought, he played it regularly on the YA tour. For example in Switzerland on the 9th of July 92 during the Leysin Rock festival. Saw this on MTV, back in the glory days.

    This is the moment in time where @SuedeMoz has his finest hour. Go on!!!

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Insatiable One"

    Love SUEDE or hate 'em, extremely cool move by Morrissey in 1992 to cover the B-side of a British newcomer who was on the verge of a worldwide breakthrough, which I think became definitive with Animal Nitrate in early 1993. The glam sound fits like a glove to the "Your Arsenal" reverb and the...
