    Morrissey A-Z: "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful"

    I remember feeling underwhelmed when I first heard it. Morrissey acting Willy and childishly with a hahahaha chorus and rather basic musicianship. On the upside, YA came as such a positive surprise after this single. Over the years, I discovered that singing along to the silly chorus can be an...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Used To Be a Sweet Boy"

    Alain’s sad and melancholic tune superbly fits the subject matter and sorrow expressed in M’s voice. It’s a sincère and heartfelt song. Even if it positions itself as one of the weaker songs on V & I, I’d still rate it as a minor classic in his song catalogue. 8/10

    Johnny Marr / Instagram: "Back in the same spot 38 years later. Camden Electric Ballroom. 21st May 1983."

    Yeah, the lack of any sort of reconciliation between them in whatever form, is heartbreaking. After all the beauty they created together.

    Johnny Marr / Instagram: "Back in the same spot 38 years later. Camden Electric Ballroom. 21st May 1983."

    Well, let it be never when it comes to writing new songs together. The Smiths legacy is nearly perfect, why not leave it there? Morrissey and Marr are exceptional talents. At that time, they were full of ambition and had everything to prove. They had deep respect for each other, and accepted a...

    Morrissey A-Z: "(The) Truth About Ruth"

    This song actually fares better on its own than as a part of the IANADOAC album, where I dislike its position between Once I Sas the river clean and Secret of music and tend to skip it as a resul. Listening to it in this randomn order, it sits somewhere in the middle of the pack. Strong vocals...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Trouble Loves Me"

    Perfect for me, in the same league with his other great popsongs ( EDILS, NMHIF, TMYIMTCIG, …). 10/10 By the way, there was a time when I only wanted to hear this song from Maladjusted, and couldn’t be bothered with the rest of the album. I know think there are several more great songs from...

    Johnny Marr - Leeds gig, 20th Sept

    At last Johnny gets the guitar sound right and that it is a pleasure to hear. Someone should throw a pillow with a Morrissey face on it at him.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Treat Me Like a Human Being"

    It seems to have a similar vibe to the early demos of Dial a cliché although the latter has better lyrics. I bought the Glamorous glue single to add this song to the collection. But I am more than happy to hold on to my original copy of VH.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Trash" (live cover)

    Good to see Moz and band having fun on this one.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Tony the Pony"

    Well, he does play plenty of better songs live. But when it comes to songs that he has never or rarely performer, I can think of Southpaw, Honey, The edges are no longer parallel, Driving your girlfriend home, Christian Dior, My love life or Shame is the name joined by his friend Chrissie...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Tony the Pony"

    It’ s a good thing that he’ll never play it live, there are far better songs to play.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Tony the Pony"

    Nothing wrong with it, but it definitely doesn’t belong to the same league as The Loop. 7/10

    Morrissey A-Z: "Tomorrow"

    One of several great rockers on the album. I really love the outtro, the sort of thing that makes you want to hit the repeating bottom ( for the CD listener) which takes you back to the raucous intro of You’re gonna need someone on your side. And so the circle is close. Fantastic way to close an...

    Morrissey A-Z: "To Me You Are a Work of Art"

    Great title to quote on my mother’s birthay ! Lyrics are echoing previous songs, I enjoy the music and his voice , especially in the live version. 7/10

    NME: “Johnny Marr gives his verdict on Blossoms and Rick Astley’s Smiths Covers Band” (September 17, 2021)

    It is not unusual for artists to want to have some control over their legacy. They don’t mind dedicated cover bands making some money out of it (and there are quite a few in the case of the Smiths), but when big names get involve, it’s a different matter. It is not a dig at Johnny Marr per se.

    Morrissey A-Z: "To Give (The Reason I Live)" (live cover)

    Morrissey sings it amazingly well, and I Like the words which suit him and this can’t be said of every cover he does. But I am only lukewarm about the music. Somehow reminds me of his own Scandinavia.

    Morrissey A-Z: "To Give (The Reason I Live)" (live cover)

    That’s a good one, the original sounds close enough to songs from Marc Almond’s Tennement Symphony album.

    NME: “Johnny Marr gives his verdict on Blossoms and Rick Astley’s Smiths Covers Band” (September 17, 2021)

    Well I wanted to raise the question last night whether these concerts would include a guest appearence by Johnny Marr. Probably not than, but he was clearly hoping for an invitation. Seems like he wants to be in control of the Smiths legacy.
