    Poll Morrissey should stop playing The Smiths' songs in concert

    yeah, he should clear out the songs that we all fell in love with when we were younger so that leaves more room for bangers like Munich air disaster 1958 and people are the same everywhere

    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    Has anyone worked out what horrible things Marr has actually said/written about Morrissey that has brought about this bizarre tirade?

    A really enjoyable remix. Thank you for sharing, and well done.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Death at One's Elbow"

    It's ultimately just not very good, either musically or lyrically. A rare dud.

    Minor Smiths mention in "Depeche Mode 101" review

    101 is a cracking documentary and live show, a real peak as a massive Mode fan. Nothing sweeter than my favourite fellow Brits cracking America on their own terms.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Barbarism Begins at Home"

    Never, ever liked this song. Sure, it's a good baseline, but it's the How Soon is Now disease - a decent idea stretched for over six minutes for the sake of it. renders the last two tracks on MiM as unlistenable. Sad!

    The Smiths A-Z: "Asleep"

    Absolutely gorgeous and haunting piece of music. Want to learn the piano just so I can play this.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Ask"

    When I first got into the smiths as a dickhead 15 year old, I loved this song. Catchy as anything. Can't say it is one I seek out now, though, just too lightweight. I love the live version on Rank, still. Also, Morrissey's solo version is very good and captures that same energy. Fair play to...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Accept Yourself"

    It's a lot of fun. Prefer it to a lot of other tracks from the self titled album era.

    Is there a 'real reason' why Morrissey and Johnny Marr never worked together again?

    Is there a 'real reason' why Morrissey and Johnny Marr never worked together again?

    this is an odd question - it's always transcribed it was a meeting in a 'South Manchester' pub, has it been confirmed which pub?
