    Thanks for that. Interesting.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Moon Over Kentucky"

    I just watched the new Sparks doc, The Sparks Brothers, last night. Quite fascinating, as I knew nothing about them. I know they are not flavour of the month round here, as they dismissed Moz, but some of the more flamboyant ululating on this song reminds me, oddly, of The Headmaster Ritual and...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Please Help the Cause Against Loneliness"

    Phil...Collins? PHIL COLLINS!? Bloody phil-istine! (I actually wrote the same thing as you wrote about the start, in an act of funny synchronicity, but looked above and saw you had written it) From 1966 (that creepy wee bald 80s-radio-despoiling bugger is not getting the credit for a classic):

    Has Morrissey condemned the racism aimed at the England team members?

    The words 'who f***ing cares?' do come to mind. His job to comment on every racist controversy in the world now, is it? Sign up for that, did he? f***sake.

    For anybody interested in Scottish literature

    you can encounter one of the country's lesser-known literary eccentrics in this piece I just put up on my blog.

    What Difference Does It Make?

    Any version of that song is great to me, one of my faves. Recall Moz saying he didn't like it, even five minutes after it came out. I think it might have made him slightly squeamish in its subject matter, i.e. he hits on a straight pal of his and gets knocked back, devastating him (in my own...

    What Difference Does It Make?

    I remember in 1995, sloshing and sploshing around in some body of water drunk at the Heineken Music Festival in Leeds, somebody played that classic on a ghetto blaster. And It was the first time I recognised how much like the bagpipes the start is. No idea how I missed it before, given the...

    Morrissey Central "Turning The Inside Out." (July 5, 2021)

    I have to say, Bonfire of Teenagers is a horrendously contentious and creepy and wrong title, even in terrorism-song context. But it's Moz being Moz, I get it. And the stuff he says about his mother is incredibly poignant and painful.

    "Morrissey vs the Conformist Cult" By Anything Goes (Paul Joseph Watson)

    You know, it's a pity that America ever minted the clickbait shouting head template for LOUDLY AGGRESSIVE, BORING, SNEERING WANKERS like this loudmouth clown. There are a million of them online, all sides at all times, swarming like flies on shitty topics, and they all talk total crap.

    Sparks Doing their (real) song Lighten Up Morrissey

    Couldn't see this posted here; please forgive me if it has been. From 2008. We now know why Sparks are annoyed at Moz; he stopped one of them getting laid. The song itself is actually pretty funny, and not particularly insulting. She won't go out with me, no, she won't go out 'Cause my...

    Morrissey Central "MORRIS KNIGHT" (June 13, 2021)

    It's not a bad cover, but this song doesn't work with an American accent, for me, personally. It's a cold, dreary, depressed, quintessentially English song.

    Lyrical musing

    Just reading some Sparks lyrics, after seeing Moon Over Kentucky here. Excellent lyrics. Saw one in the song Angus Desire: "Why don't you stay with your own kind." Just wondered, if, well, you know. Might well be wrong.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Moon Over Kentucky"

    This bloody Sparks song has been haunting me since I first heard it here a few days ago. It's like a weird vaudeville track done with dirty slutty pre-punk guitars and early 80s splatter film synth years early. Sung by somebody just out of (or just checked into) an insane asylum. It

    'Frink,' damn, what a horrible word that was. Glad it died out years ago. :)

    Morrissey A-Z: "Mama Lay Softly on the Riverbed"

    Super song, raises the hackles. The drumming at the end and the funereal church organ totally make it.

    'New' George A Romero film review

    I reviewed the new George A Romero 'lost' film, which has just been released on streaming in the USA. Wasn't even going to write about it, but it blindsided me.

    Whale blubber Wilde

    What would Mike Joyce know about The Smiths? "Weird lover Wilde" fits for me, in the context of the song (i.e. being in love with morbidity, like walking round a cemetery) and in Morrissey-life general. I will never buy "Whale blubber Wilde." Why would Morrissey insult one of his heroes by...
