    He's been telling us the whole time?

    In a 1984 interview in #1 magazine, Morrissey says the following, "I'd rather be remembered as a big-mouthed failure than an effete little wimp." Given the spate of post-millennium controversy in his orbit combined with the dismal failure of his last few self-penned albums, I can't help but...

    Morrissey on IRS's The Cutting Edge (on MTV)

    YouTuber, MrPhilrand, has posted two videos from the MTv show, The Cutting Edge. The videos seem to be labeled backwards, with part 1 being called part 2 and vice-versa. The description on the YouTube videos says 1986, but the video indicates the time is October, 1985. As the opening shot of the...

    Sad what passes for art direction

    All this time, I'd thought the grainy look of the IANADOAC cover was just a function of low-resolution derivatives, but evidently the intended concept was to mimic fan-made, bootleg-concert artwork circa 1999? Back then, we had to use whatever 640x480 px images someone happened to share. What...

    Morrissey mention on Better Caul Saul?

    This past Monday's episode (S05E09) of Better Call Saul caught my eye even more than usual when in an early scene, a big rig rolls through the scene emblazoned with "Morrissey Freight." I don't find an actual company called Morrissey Freight, so it's got me wondering what the reference might...

    California Son - member first impressions

    I am thoroughly pleased with the new album--after having hated World Peace and having disliked Low In High School. Even the "Lady Willpower" track which had me cringing a bit feels very good in the context of the album. It sounds like it's mastered a tad too loud on some songs, but it's not...

    Where do I get some of the Kool-aid being drunk by everyone who loves the new album?

    It's weird (but calculated?) that the song quality gets progressively worse through the playing of this album--so that when you mercifully get to the end, the first few songs (which sounded atrocious on first-listen) sound relatively good. I bought two copies--something quite normal for me with...

    The Dead Milkmen mention Morrissey on MTV's 120 Minutes (w/ Kevin Seal, circa 1989)

    Here it is @ 4m40sec, if the clip doesn't cue properly: The whole flippin' clip is awesome, so back it up after you hear their story. As an aside, I've been gorging on "Eat Your Paisley!" lately, and the guitar work on that album sounds divinely inspired by The Smiths.
