- My Early Burglary Years - details
- Marilyn Manson and John LaCroix comment
and John's Children, Feb. 22 in London
Thanks to Mark
Deveney (Charlton, SE7) for the news:
Boorer is playing in Marc Bolans old
group "Johns Children"
on 22nd Feb at The Notre Dame
Ballroom London, WC2.
It is the original line-up plus Boz taking
Apparently, they have a new album in
production called Bonfire at the Baxters.
Mann for the info:
Halo Benders, who previously
covered "Please Please Please Let Me
Get What I Want" as a b-side, have a
track on their new album called "Virginia
Reel Around the Fountain." It
is NOT a cover.
addition to the Manson list
what it is worth, at the bottom of the list
he has a "Rules that ive
broken" section. He admits to having
broken rule # 2 . He must own at least one
Smiths record, so perhaps he is a fan?
I didn't realize
Marilyn Manson was a comedian. Thanks to Garrison
Poppe for the following:
me preface this with the explanation that I
work in a small bookstore. I do not own a
copy of Marilyn Mansons book. I repeat, I
do not own a copy of Mr. Mansons book.

Taken from pages 134 and 135 of
"The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell"
by Marilyn Manson.
LaCroix (Ten Yard Fight) picks his favorites
Thanks to DDaiTheFlu
for the following details:
was reading through a magazine called "Chord"
(its a Hardcore/Punk magazine - it doesnt
have a date/month on it... most likely its
a Feb. issue). It has "H2O" on the
cover and says article w/the Deftones. But
as I kept readin on in the very back of
the 2nd to the last page it has in bold
letters "Top Ten" and a picture
of John LaCroix the bassist
from "Ten Yard Fight"
(who is also the publisher of Extent,
another Punk magazine.) Underneath the
picture it says "Wonderin what next
Artist or albums 2 buy or hear? We asked
John LaCroix to tell us his Top
Ten picks for favorite bands of all-time."
and the list goes as follows w/ the followin
1. The Smiths/Morrissey:
"Those who dont understand the
MAN, judge the MAN, as I did for years.
Listen good suckers! He may not be a Tattooed-Meat-Head,
but this British ex-jock wont hesitate
to spit in the eyes of any prejudging
Hardcore kid. Morrissey is as Tough as
Tough and is Cool as Cool, and has great
(Favorite song: "Handsome
2. Deftones ("7
Words") / Youth Of Today
("Flame Still Burns")
3. Circle Jerks
("Wild In The Streets"
&" Im Alive")
4. Minor Threat
5. Sick Of It All
6. The Misfits
8. The Beatles
9. Gorilla Biscuits
10. Weezer ("For No
11. Wu-Tang Clan ("Hellz
Wind Staff" &"Triumph")
("Abolish Govt") / The
Vandals ("Anarchy Burger
(Hold The Govt)")
"Chord" along w/ "Too-Hype
Records" is the magazine that put out
the CD A Tribute to The Smiths, The
World Still Wont Listen a few of
bands on the tribute album have articles in
this issue Dare to Defy, H20, Youth Brigade,
The Business, Sweet Diesel, Edgewise,
And one more thing Deftones are said to do
one more Smiths cover (dont know which
song) as well as a Depeche Mode song. But
when I saw them last Fall in between songs
Chino Moreno (kinda rapped em actually)
sang the lyrics to Ask
and the Deftones are also on the Duran
Duran tribute album but not the one with
all the "cheesy-fake-wannabe" Ska
The other Smiths cover
referred to is most likely "Please,
Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want",
as reported about a month ago in an article
about The Deftones.
* Update (Jan. 28,
That article was taken from
something I wrote for Chord Magazine,
however, I was misquoted on your site...
Record number 2 is Youth Of Today but NOT
Deftones. In fact, I never even mentioned
them, they were merely appearing in the same
magazine I was in. Also, Numbers 11 and 12
were not on that article either, nor are
they included in my all time favorites. (Deftones
either) I'm not sure where they came from.
...Also, I used to be in a band that covered
2 different Smiths songs. Please, Please,
Please and Big Mouth. I was also a member of
Slapshot for a short period of time, but I
wasn't in the band at the time they covered
first with the word that the My Early
Burglary Years compilation is mentioned
on the NME.COM
news page. No new information, except that
there are no plans for release in the UK -- US
I forgot to thank those few who have sent
postcards and other items through the normal
mail in the past year. So, thanks -- your
consideration is appreciated.
Thank you to all who
made the effort to submit a logo. I am really
amazed at the quality and quantity of logos I
received in the space of less than two weeks.
I look forward to displaying them around the
site soon. I'll be choosing my favorite ones
and rotating in different ones from time to
time. (If you want to suggest a particular
logo, go right ahead... Several people already
have and there has been quite a wide variance
The last-minute entries are on pages 9 and
of the complete
list of entries.
Thanks Michael Fellows
for noticing that the My Early Burglary
Years compilation is mentioned on the Reprise
news page. No new information, but it is
under the clever title "Dimestore

Levon for the note concerning the

Title - Morrissey
Hand-Picks Cool B-Sides, Rarities For CD:
(photo caption: The disc also will
feature an enhanced CD-ROM portion,
including a video previously unavailable in
Ex-Smiths singer chooses 16 of his favorite
tracks for album spanning his solo career.
Addicted To Noise Senior Writer Gil Kaufman
reports : Morrisseys upcoming B-sides and
rarities collection, My Early Burglary
Years (May 12), isnt just another
rummage through the former Smiths singers
closet of hits, but its not strictly an
odds and sods collection of castoffs,
either, according to Howie Klein, president
of Reprise Records.
"Its not greatest hits, because he
already did that," Klein said. "It
wouldnt have been much different from
[1990s] Bona Drag, which was a
straight singles collection, so I asked him
for his ideas on what other kinds of things
could be included."
In response, Morrissey came up with a
16-track batch of rarities, B-sides and
previously unreleased tracks that span his
solo career, from "Sister Im
a Poet" (B-side to the 1988
single "Everyday Is Like Sunday")
to "Nobody Loves Us"
(B-side to the 1995 U.K.-only single "Dagenham
Dave"), as well as a previously
unreleased live cover of glam-rockers T-Rexs
The disc will also feature an enhanced
CD-ROM portion, including a video --
previously unavailable in the U.S.for the
U.K. single "Sunny."
Also in the collection are: "Girl
Least Likely To" (B-side to
the 1990 single "November Spawned a
Monster"), "At Amber"
(B-side to the 1990 U.K.-only single "Picadilly
Love" (B-side to the 1992
U.K.-only single "Youre The One For
Me, Fatty"), "Ive
Changed My Plea to Guilty"
(B-side to the 1991 single "My Love
Life"), "Id Love
To" (B-side to the 1994 single
"The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I
Get"), "Black Eyed
Susan" and "A
Swallow On My Neck" (B-sides
to the 1995 U.K.-only single
"Sunny"), and "Michaels
Bones" (B-side to the 1989
single "Last of the Famous
The CD also features the album tracks "Reader
Meet Author" and "The
Boy Racer" from 1995s Southpaw
Grammar, "Jack the
Ripper" (RealAudio excerpt)
from 1993s Beethoven Was Deaf
and "Boxers," a
single from 1995s The World of
"These are basically tracks that
[Morrissey] thought were overlooked, or his
favorite tracks, some were imports,"
said Klein, who said that My Early
Burglary Years was created especially
for U.S. fans, since many of the rare tracks
were previously available in Europe. [Wed.,
