    BMG signing other bands

    I see that BMG has just signed Johnny Marr. Not long after signing Suede. Gary Numan is also with them. Some of my fav artists all on the same label. https://www.nme.com/news/music/johnny-marr-announces-new-album-deal-with-bmg-3009505...

    The gentle truth of the camera eye

    I couldn't find an existing thread. I was wondering does anyone know where/when this photo was taken? Moz looks fantastic in it, like a matinee idol. I would guess around Your Arsenal US tour?

    Nick Cave 2021 tour cancelled

    Sickened to be told today that Nick Cave's 2021 Ghosteen UK/European tour has just been cancelled. Already rescheduled from spring 2020, I was all set to see him in Dublin. Not entirely surprised cos I don't live under a rock, but still disgusted. Is 2021 setting itself up for another live music...

    New Order are still Legend

    I was at the New Order concert in Dublin last night, 2nd row standing. One of the best concerts of my life. I'd urge anyone who hasn't seen them live to see them in concert. Well worth the effort! They did loads of Joy Division songs too.

    A new interview with Robert Smith from The Cure very briefly mentions Morrissey: Smith also had a long-running feud with Morrissey (“I never really understood it”), in which he has proven to be on the right side of history. Full interview is here...

    Hi. Does anyone know of some good record shops in Manchester city? My good friend is going there. He's into same kind of music as me: Moz, The Smiths, Suede, The Cure, The Jam, etc. Just looking for top tips from vinyl buyers. If the shops also sell Moz/Smiths t-shirts then even better! Thanks!

    How does BMG make money from Moz?

    I was wondering how does BMG make money from Low In High School? Do they get a % of each CD sold, do they get any money from the tour, etc. Basically I was wondering how Moz is so rich if his albums don't exactly earn millions. I know Moz has been a millionaire since his early solo years and...

    Is Jackie about Brexit, Britain, or not?

    Morrissey has denied that 'Jacky's only happy when she's up on the stage' has anything to do with Brexit. Fair enough. But as I was listening to it again last night I started to wonder if it's about Britain, or Brexit, or both. The line: 'Jackie cracks when she's not on stage' reminded me of...

    Johnny Marr's wedding

    I was rereading Johnny Marr's autobiography and when he mentioned that the guy who took the official wedding photos in 1985 didn't give him the photos. Anyway, I found this image on Google. You've probably seen it before but I hadn't. Moz looks great as usual.

    Munich Air Disaster - Spoken words

    Did anyone else notice the spoken words at the very end of Munich Air Disaster? Very faintly you can hear a man saying "Thats not funny". I never noticed it on the CD in my car but heard it on my phone. Played it today in car and turned the volume way up at the end and was able to hear it. Funny...
