    The Telegraph: "No record label will touch Morrissey – and that’s the music industry’s loss" (June 4, 2021)

    He should just release the downloadable tracks on Bandcamp (they can be lossless FLAC and WAV there as well, so no poor quality MP3 issues), and then have a small boutique label produce collector's edition CDs and LPs for people who want those. He'd probably do just as well financially, or even...

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    Why not just self-release online?

    "Shoplifters Of The World" movie released (March 26, 2021)

    Watched it on Amazon Prime last night. Meh...mildly entertaining, especially for those of us who were teenagers in the mid-‘80s, but obviously the best part is simply the music and the clips of Morrissey and Marr themselves from the time. It won’t go down in celluloid history as a high water...

    Morrissey Central "GODDESS MILEY IN A SMITHS TEE" (March 12, 2021)

    Goddess? She looks like trailer trash. Chip off the old Billy Ray block.

    Morrissey Central "AND THE SOUL GOES OVER …" (October 31, 2020)

    I do wish people would stop this trendy "Rest in Power" nonsense. Though given that it's Morrissey, perhaps he's using it ironically.

    Radio 2 Best Albums of the 1980's list (October 9, 2020)

    That line and song may be the wost on the album, but overall the album and lyrics are brilliant.

    The Telegraph: "Nik Kershaw interview: ‘The Smiths hated me – we had stare-offs on Top of the Pops’" (October 15, 2020)

    Like many things these days, the word "superstar" has been devalued. Never heard of Nik Kershaw.

    Radio 2 Best Albums of the 1980's list (October 9, 2020)

    Indeed. I'm surprised Pual Simon didn't take more flak also for recording in South Africa during Apartheid. People like Moz, Nick Cave, and Radiohead get so much stick these days from Israel bashers, yet I don't recall much negative press for Simon at the time about working and recording in SA.

    Radio 2 Best Albums of the 1980's list (October 9, 2020)

    Who the hell is ABC? Some Brit thing that never made it over the pond? Joshua Tree is a solid choice for #1, but most of the rest of the top 10 is bollocks. If limiting to just one album per band/artist (otherwise U2's "War" should be in there too), then The Cure's "Disintegration", The Clash's...

    Irish Examiner: "Suzanne Harrington - It's a blow when heroes like Morrissey and John Lydon turn out to be idiots" (October 5, 2020)

    Same boring blather we've heard people from mediocrities like this Suzanne Harrington person a million times before: Overgrown fangirls and fanboys mad that their former teen crush idols continue to think for themselves rather than following the PC mob to win kudos from the mainstream. Johnny...

    Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time drops 3 Smiths albums

    No time to go through all 500, but the top 50 are appallingly bad choices. Clealry driven more by PC racial considerations than artistic/musical merit.

    Matt Berninger (The National) on The Queen is Dead

    I thought about half of Sleep Well Beast was up to the standards of those others, but parts of it fell flat. Only liked abut 3 or 4 songs on I Am Easy to Find, but even those marred by the production and excessive use of guest co-vocalists. Ex: This live verison of Rylan on KEXP much better...

    Matt Berninger (The National) on The Queen is Dead

    The last two National albums were disappointing, but "Alligator", "High Violet", and "Trouble Will Find Me" are masterpieces. He also references "Bona Drag" in the lyric to the song "Pink Rabbits." Surprised the extreme leftist Berringer didn't include a gratuitous slap at Morrissey's alleged...

    Morrissey Central "YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH" (August 31, 2020)

    Strange this epidemic of black rapper-type guys wearing Moz shirts, masks, etc.

    Las Vegas rescheduled 2021 dates on Caesars Palace site (5 dates, Aug. 27 - Sep. 5, 2021)

    It's safe now. The masters of the plandemic just don't want people to know it, and keep pushing endless fear and paranoia. But people are waking up. The protests in Europe last weekend were a good sign, hopefully we'll see more here. And the CDC last week also released info showing only 6% of...

    Morrissey Central "BORN SORRY" (August 19, 2020)

    Unless Moz had transferred the bulk of his own assets, royalty rights, etc. to her (which would have made no sense), I'd be curious as to your reason to believe she left a particlualry large estate. Moz's parents were not wealthy, and I'm sure her house was paid for by him (in fact he says as...

    Morrissey Central "Mamma Lay Softly" (August 15, 2020)

    The wording may have been a bit odd, but I think he clearly meant to indict the forces stuttering the music halls, and those who stifle free speech in the name of political correctness (Not only in general, but in the specific case of the current Covid-panic where unstinting efforts have been...

    Morrissey Central "Mamma Lay Softly" (August 15, 2020)

    Why are people so confused by last paragraph? Clearly a reference to the ongoing Covid-paranoia being manipulated and manufactured by politicians and media to prevent any normal life resuming because of a virus that has an IFR in the same range as flu. Long past time for life to return to...

    Morrissey Central "ELIZABETH ANNE DWYER" (August 8, 2020)

    Christianity didn't just CLAIM to have roots in Judaism, it's early adherents, and Christ himself, were all Jews. Utterly different from the c 7th century claims of an Arabian bandit.
