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

First mentioned last August and 3 months after the digital release of Cosmic Dancer, today sees the official release date of the double A-side black vinyl.
This release appears to be very widely available with HMV, Mporium, most Amazons & Indies having good stocks.
Amazon & HMV briefly listed the release date as January 29, both revising it shortly thereafter.
It will more than likely chart quite high on the vinyl singles chart based on previous releases.

There is no matrix message on either side of the record.

Cosmic Dancer is mis-dated as February 6, 1991 (the Kill Uncle Tour didn't start until the end of April, '91).
The actual date of the gig was June 2, 1991 at The Great Western Forum (the venue's name at the time).
This appears to be an error based on the US/UK dating systems and clearly wasn't checked thoroughly.

The Morrissey Central assertion re: That's Entertainment:
"...The recording is not the aborted version from 1994..."
may well remain a mystery (or perhaps is as erroneous as the dating of Cosmic Dancer).

Update:

That's Entertainment became available on a variety of digital music hosts/shops some time after midnight UK time.
The track appeared on YouTube thereafter too (with comments turned off):


Regards,
FWD.

Born in Paisley though.
True. Only qualified for Ireland through his grandfather but still means he's an Irish footballer, imo anyway

Now, you mention it, that is more sensible.

I don't know anything about football, so I just put together his nationality & his profession.

Followed up by a double A-side of the last 2 minutes of You Were Good In Your Time remastered in surround sound, and an extended remix of the middle bit of Black-Eyed Susan. Yours for only £24.99!
Thanks I needed that laugh!

It’s money in the bank. He’ll do it when it suits.

That aside, my point was more that if it does happen money would be the motivation; I’ve heard he’s not averse to the stuff.
You're probably right. I think it would have to be a lot of money. But Moz has caused so much grief with his comments in a woke world that I reckon J.Marr wouldn't go near him. It's not like Moz or Marr really need the money.

I agree, neither of them need the money so its all about what they want to do from a personal perspective. Johnny's currently recording a new solo album and I reckon his next project will be something with Bernard Sumner aka Electronic.

Have you read Autobiography? The Smiths are dead.
Yep. Like Pink Floyd, The Sex Pistols, The Velvet Underground, The Police, The Eagles, The Beatles, The Stone Roses etc: each had protagonists who had some ‘offer’ and then strangely developed a taste for their own testicles.

Yes but none of them had Morrissey as a front man. His outright stubbornness is his own worst enemy and you keep your enemies close which is why his stubbornness is also his best friend. Do I really need to explain why Morrissey is on a different plain altogether in comparison to the bands you've cited? I will anyway.

Floyd reunited for a one off Live 8 concert where millionaires pretend to 'End Poverty'. Ball eating begins. The Sex Pistols were punks and would do anything for money. People would be disappointed if they didn't sell out. Punk performs the unexpected always, which I guess is to be expected :) I can't be bothered with the eagles, beatles and police.

No one holds Ian Brown and John Squire up the same level of respectability as Morrissey and Marr. The Roses band members didn't sue each other. They were screwed by their record company and then grew apart because of drugs and egos. Thankfully they fell back in favour with each other at Mani's Mother's funeral. Brown is not known for having principles that would stop him from embarking on a reunion tour to make tons of cash to pay off his wife in their divorce which is why he did it. I believe their attempt to make a new album was a ruse.

I'll eat my balls when Morrissey and Joyce share the stage.

Weller's lyrics on that song are as good as Morrissey's best. His Suburban 100 book of lyrics is like reading modern poetry. Just beautiful. 'Tales From The Riverbank' is one of my favourite songs of all time, alongside The Butterfly Collector and Carnation. Ooh I feel a Jam vinyl binge is due in my house tonight.
was watching a gary numan interview the other day and he was saying he failed an audition for the jam,he was originally a guitarist.

Fair points, but I’d say everyone has their price—without exception.

When after a few beers he agreed to reunite The Smiths last time, after saying he wouldn’t (c.2006?), I gather it was accepted that Mike wouldn’t be the drummer.

I have to say I really enjoyed The Stone Roses’ shameless cash-in. And The Sex Pistols at Finsbury Park were ace.

Anyway, I’ve been thinking about the prospect all evening and I have a question: do you think a Smiths tour in the US would more lucrative than a Depeche Mode or Cure tour? It’s a given for the UK, but in the US? I have my doubts. I was working in America in 1992, and everyone I knew was much more familiar with the latter outfits.

I’ve bought my tickets for the Autumn OMD tour today Acton: my choice for the most worthwhile of recent reunions.

It would be, if only by virtue of being a reunion tour.

I love OMD, especially the first few albums. I didn't even know they were touring this year. I've a ticket for New Order in Manchester in Sept, if Covid makes flying feasible.

I don't know if a Smiths reunion would make more money than The Cure. Robert Smith hasn't got people's backs up or lost fans the way Moz has. If the new Cure album is brilliant then all the better for any concerts they do in 21/22. I'm hoping for something as great as Pornography or Disintegration but that's an unrealistic dream.

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 were blown away.
I got his autobiography for Christmas and need to read it. Music keeps getting in the way.

Was this always planned to be released under the Parlaphone label? Just wondered if this was a clue to him having a deal with a new label.

Money is the only reason he would reform The Smiths.
Will never happen (at least for the Smiths rhythm section) but he will surely reconcile/reunite with Johnny one day. In 2007, JM said, "I'm not rich enough to turn that sort of money down. But it would have been morally wrong - and corrupt - to have done it. Unfortunately, with the four members of The Smiths, there is no friendship there any more. We don't hang around together and we haven't seen each other for years. How can you play with people under those circumstances? The other thing is, I didn't get into this for the money, so it would have been morally wrong to do those shows just for the money."

And then only one year later they were in a pub in Bowdon, talking about it.

M said they were offered $75 million dollars,if it was the original deal then it would be 7.5 million for rourke and joyce and 30 million each for M and marr,if only joyce had a crystal ball then he would now be rolling in it.
