    Morrissey A-Z: "Oboe Concerto"

    The song is, of course, pure filth. Mr Shandy, for example, could often be caught in the toilets of 'Peveril of the Peak' playing the oboe concerto on a young waiter from the Midland Hotel. And so on. Utter. Filth. We. Love. It.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Nobody Loves Us"

    ‘NUL POINTS!’ Nobody Loves Us! Is that what this is? Oh, please yourself. Goddard recognises the brilliance of the song yet tosses it off in a paragraph (whilst droning on for ages about ‘Golden Lights’) so you can tell exactly where his archy pointy head is at. This is THE definitive...

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Hurling Days Are Done"

    Did we ever tell you about our Covid near-death experience last spring? This wonderful song provided a soundtrack of sorts. There was a point at which we discussed its appropriateness for the Crem, just as the curtains closed. Is it just us, or does this sit SO comfortably alongside 'Never...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Jack the Ripper"

    FURTHERMORE . . . It has occurred to us, recently, that this particular thread is actually worthy of a book. The best scribbling about music usually comes from the pens of the fan-obsessives, the ferret-eyed loners and the terminally ill. SO . . . we offer ourselves as co-editors. You have been...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Jack the Ripper"

    'Crash into.....' is such a wonderous line, don't you think? '....as mean as your life has been'. Me and HIM spend a lot of time hanging around Whitechapel (not what you think, Ducky) and it is still possible, on dark nights, down the right side-streets and with the right amount of empathy, to...

    Morrissey A-Z: "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty"

    Mr Shandy and myself have not always trod the straight and legal narrow - far from it (it's legal now, so nither mind). AND YET, there have been times, in our wilder youths and in our disgruntled MIDDLE ages, when we have erred. Oh yes, there has been a lot of erring, I can tell you. SO, you...

    Morrissey A-Z: "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris"

    Me and he simply ADORE this one. In his cups, tippy-toeing from the Lower Turks on Shudehill, Sullivan was once moved to sing his own 'I'm throwing my arms around Prestwich' version which caused something of a stir, I can tell you. THIS is a delightful song - a companion piece to 'Christian...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Forgive Someone"

    Tee-dee-ummmmm. HOWEVER, the origins of his genius and the 'SMITH/S' was always looking at him, always in his ears.
