    Not much relevance. Someone said Lady Gaga would be remembered longer than Moz (I think) and I just made the comment about her dogs. She got them back anyway in the end.

    I'm listening to the remastered 12" now. Sounds amazing. In my top 5 songs of all time. New Order had a load of brilliant songs. Hoping to see them in Sept if Ireland gets it's act together with vaccinations. Mini riot in Dublin today. Dickheads attacking the Gardai (police 🚔).

    Agree. Moz won't ever be as popular or well known or remembered by the masses in the way they'll remember Queen or Elton John or The Beatles or Bowie or even Rod Stewart. Because the stuff that gets airplay is the less evocative, less complicated, less confrontational, more generic and slightly...

    At least Moz can have his dogs walked without getting shot.

    Morrissey's vocal delivery defines his songs, and in many ways he is as important to the song as the songwriter who wrote the notes. His vocal melody is the heart of the song. He is much more than a lyricist/singer. Moz reshapes the clay of the song and elevates it to a new level. His...

    I loved those records. But I love Dog Chain more.

    If Sham Yeasty Rainman had a clue he'd stop wasting his time on photoslop and waste his time instead putting together a 3hr documentary on The Smiths & Moz. God knows he probably has access to a load of rare footage. He should do something useful during lockdown. And Moz should record a new...

    In the immortal words of Spike in Notting Hill: "I knew a girl called Pandora once. I never did get to see her box though."

    Morrissey Central "THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT" (February 26, 2021) - "Cosmic Dancer (live) / That's Entertainment" enters at #1 on Official UK Vinyl Singles Chart

    That's good news. The sad news is most people won't bother listening to the far superior original version by Marc Bolan.

    True. It could be the new Zapruder film where we finally get to identify exactly who threw that 50p at Moz. p.s. my good friend was at the concert but was too busy getting aled down the back to notice Moz leaving. Ah well.

    Omega Auctions: "Day 1: Music Memorabilia / Day 2: Rare & Collectable Vinyl Records" (February 23-24, 2021)

    I'll gladly sell my Live In Dallas VHS for €100. I even wrote out the tracklist and cellotaped it to the inside of the box, cos Moz couldn't be arsed to list the songs. A real rare gem on guaranteed blurry video. A must for a true fan and aficionado of fine quality releases by an artist who...

    NME: "Soundtrack Of My Life: ‘The Inbetweeners’ star James Buckley" (February 19, 2021)

    Ennio Morricone's music is a prime example of sad music that makes you happy. I don't know what makes some of the melodies sad.

    "Cosmic Dancer" b/w "That's Entertainment" vinyl 7" released today (February 19, 2021)

    I haven't seen his house but I'm glad he's doing well.

    "Cosmic Dancer" b/w "That's Entertainment" vinyl 7" released today (February 19, 2021)

    I'm glad cos he went on to make some fantastic music. I love Replicas and Telecon and of course The Pleasure Principle. His Savage album was great and I've preordered the upcoming Intruder 2LP. I saw him in concert in Sept 2019 and he was brilliant. My friends are more casual Numan fans and they...
