    What do you want Morrissey to focus on in 2013?

    It goes without saying that Morrissey could get a new album into the shops. What’s stopping him is that he doesn’t believe the offers he receives are generous enough for the quality of his songs, and his status in the music industry (fair enough), but the fact that he could now record and...

    Boz's new solo album 'Some of the Parts' - any good?

    I've not spent much time round here recently so don't know if this has been discussed (tried a quick search). Anyone got it? Read any reviews? Of some interest, surely, as a few of the songs' demos may presumably have made a Morrissey album. I saw it in HMV today. Makes a mockery of the...

    Whose new album are you most looking forward to - Morrissey's or Johnny Marr's?

    This would have been a no-brainer for me a couple of years ago, but having heard new songs by both of them since then, now I'm not so sure...

    Suggest a question for a Morrissey email interview

    Although Morrissey is unlikely to spend much time round these parts, the journalists who interview him (in his seemingly increasing number of email interviews) surely pop by from time to time. Any questions you’d like them to ask? Here’s one from me: “Mr S Morrissey – you’ve now co-written...

    Do you hate William and Kate (like Morrissey and his band appears to do)?

    I think it's pretty much the t-shirt slogan that Morrissey's had the band wearing the most. But do you agree with the sentiment? Poll coming along shortly ...

    Cracking new Morrissey interview - full transcript here

    It's the one referred to in the 'other thread' but here, at last, is the full interview in its original version. It's one of the best I've read for years. Some really interesting, thoughtful comments and large dollops of wit. Even some funny lighthearted comments about the royal family for once...

    Do you believe that the MEN show will be Morrissey's only UK date of the year?

    It's been announced as such but then again so were the first dates in Scotland last year. I hope it is, for the sake of Morrissey's integrity, but I hope it isn't coz I'd like to see him at a London (or at least non-arena) show. Does it really matter whether it turns out to be true or not? My...

    "Viva Hate" reissue misses UK Top 100

    Looks like the re-issue missed the top 100. http://www.officialcharts.com/albums-chart/ If memory serves, the re-issues of Southpaw and Maladjusted both made the top 75...

    More thread-merging madness

    Can we have an explanation as to why a thread about Chrissie Hynde's notes for Viva Hate, and a thread about the new edited version of Maudlin Street have been merged? Yes, they both relate to the new edition of Viva Hate but they are completely different aspects (I am interested in the latter...

    Morrissey has dropped all of the new songs from the set list - but why?

    Back in the 1990s, Morrissey hardly ever played unreleased songs live (I think WHIWOFBS and Sunny might be the only exceptions). But in the 2000s, it seems he was quite keen to preview unreleased stuff, particularly in the 2002 (with IBEH, M, TFOTGTD, ILY etc) and 2008 (ITMAAP, AYNIS, SISMS...

    Morrissey's new almost 'a capella' version of Please Please Please

    With all the controversy about his Falkland Islands comments, it's almost gone unnoticed that someone (Morrissey/the band?) has rearranged Please Please Please into an almost a capella version i.e. with the strummy guitar taken off. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoQoKlYLEs8 It's a lovely...

    What do you think of Morrissey getting his band to wear sloganed t-shirts?

    He's done it quite a few times now. Last night it was 'We hate William and Kate', there's been one or two about McDonalds/KFC etc, and of course the infamous F*** Morrissey Solo debacle. I'm not 100% sure but I think it's usually just the band that wear them (tho I think Morrissey joined in...

    What do you think of 'People Are The Same Everywhere'?

    If Morrissey was to publish a list of 'new songs of which I'm most proud' it's likely that 'People Are The Same' would be at the top. He's played it more times than any of the other new ones live (I think) and has also performed it live on UK radio and US television shows. I'd say there's a fair...

    Morrissey and Stephen Street re-collaborating? All of the rumours...

    Of all the bits of Morrissey news from the last 15 years, nothing for me compares with the prospect of Morrissey and Street writing a new batch of songs together. There is yet another (admittedly not wholly convincing) rumour to add to the previous ones. First, let's recap: Rumour number 1 -...

    Morrissey's 2011 - the highlights, the lowlights, general thoughts. A good year?

    It's been an odd year for Morrissey, really. If I'm honest, quite a bit worse than I was expecting/hoping. What have we got to look forward to in 2012? An acceptance that a new album probably won't get off the drawing board. A horrible legal battle with the world's bitchiest music publication...

    David T - please issue a warning that any post could become a front-page news item

    I've just seen that my comments about the Marr Uncut interview have been posted as a news story, verbatim, on the front page. Is there a warning, anywhere, that this can happen to any post? My post was full of half-remembered quotes, and my strong opinion about what I thought of these comments...

    Johnny Marr Q&A in the new Uncut

    There's a 2 or 3 page feature on J Marr in the new Uncut where he answers questions from various musical types. Scan of article posted in the original thread by Uncleskinny.

    J Marr in new Uncut - disingenuous comments about Morrissey and Joyce Michael?

    There's a 2 or 3 page feature on J Marr in the new Uncut where he answers questions from various musical types. One is from Joyce Michael (about Marr's veganism) where Marr retorts something like "wow, I've not heard from him for ages" as if it's a much cherished, long-lost friend rather than...
