    The setlist last night was perfect. Wish I was going to another one on this run, but at least the Forest Hills show is right around the corner.

    He sang the lyrics to Half A Person at the start of How Soon Is Now? and it sounds amazing:

    “I Won’t Share You” played live for the first time, with The Smiths or solo:



    In full:



    Also, new b-side “Brow Of My Beloved” is superb:

    Seriously, what the fuck. I know he's always been sort of a pompous dope but fuck man, what are you doing.

    California Son has leaked. I haven't gotten to listen to it yet, but I'm reading positive things from people who actually bothered to listen to it and aren't just bashing it because of the dumb things he says and does outside of the music.

    All of these songs were great — back in the 60s and 70s, sung by the original artists. With this over-cooked, AutoTuned, pre-fab production slathered all over Moz's aging voice as he warbles his way through them, getting the words wrong, ah... not so much.

    This albums actually pretty great. It's early still, but I'm currently willing to go as far as to say it's his best since Ringleader. Moz should stick stick to cover songs from now on until he remembers how to write a decent lyric.

    Thing is, he should stop re-writing other people's lyrics in the meantime:

    I'm a big Joni fan... and this one was the hardest for me to take.

    So, in the original lyric, the Anima, Queen of Queens — a Jungian reference, naturally — is a spiritual avatar, a female-energy shadow spirit complementing every male-energy persona. There is an overbearing male persona that's excoriated in Joni's original song lyrics; she imagines the "Anima rising in me tonight" as a response. Morrissey has changed the lyrics, so that the anima is the one being tut-tutted for "uprising in you tonight". He's subtly changed the words in every verse, re-writing it from the boorish male perspective. As though Moz can't possibly have feminine traits in himself, or take any responsibility for toxic masculine ones. Put this in context with his boo-hoo'ing over #MeToo and it's... well, straight-up desecration.

    "I say Anima rising... but: so what?" Fuck you, Moz. I say delete this album and go listen to The Hissing of Summer Lawns instead.

    Because This Is How I Am. - Morrissey Central
    May 24, 2019



    BECAUSE THIS IS HOW I AM

    "in early old age could I please express very sincere thanks to BBC Radio 2 for their broad-shouldered support given to "California Son", "Wedding Bell Blues" and "It's Over". Whatever the future brings, I will always remember Radio 2's steady support during these rocky weeks - especially from Jo Whiley.

    I am sorry the UK print media's contorted interpretation of who and what I am has gone all wrong. In these days when most people are afraid to even whisper, the print media write as if someone is coming to get them. This aching nervousness brings on the vengeful and paranoid. Inventing Britain's doomsday is the preoccupation of the tabloids, and they can hate you for having lived.

    I straighten up, and my position is one of hope. The march backwards is over, and life has begun again. With voice extended to breaking point, I call for the prosperity of free speech; the eradication of totalitarian control; I call for diversity of opinion; I call for the total abolition of the abattoir; I call for peace, above all; I call for civil society; I call for a so-far unknowable end to brutalities; "No" to Soviet Britain; prayers not to gods but to forces; an end to disingenuous media cluelessness; the people have the power; hatred and beheadings belong in the furnace of history; music might still be your only friend; for every shade and persuasion ... we shall always be alongside each other - everyone's culture of value; no more fashionable outrage; cows are friends to humans - don't kill them; beware of those who write in headlines; moral fiber means holding on ... to your friends; give up on inferior arguments; God gave you your life to enjoy - you will cry for your life in years to come ... death always answers back; do not be a nobody; you have survived this far in order to make the remainder peaceful and funny; your very survival proves that you have a right; ignore the cold eyes of fascism; your life is Art." #morrissey

    Peter Katsis:

    "All this over a pin?

    Everyone always wants to jump to conclusions.

    Morrissey has never been affiliated with any political party in the past. Morrissey has never voted in his life, and is not a member of any political party.

    Morrissey opposes racism, hatred and press censorship. Morrissey believes in free speech and free expression and opposes totalitarian regimes. Morrissey has only ever met two political figures - Ken Livingstone and Tony Blair.

    Morrissey currently wears lapel pins of James Baldwin, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Aretha Franklin, Oscar Wilde.

    Morrissey is quite used to smear campaigns from the UK press. It is nothing new for us.

    Thanks to the fans the CS record is currently # 2 at HMV today. And thanks to Merseyrail for all the extra press today!

    A great holiday weekend to all. - PK."

    Can I ask what's next for you, Morrissey? I know you have some tour dates coming up soon but do you have any long terms plans for another solo album or project - or haven't you thought that far ahead just yet?

    We have recorded a new studio album, but when it's released depends upon how much breathing space is allowed California Son. So, anything could happen... and anything usually does happen. It's an album of 12 original songs, so is, in its way, the follow-up to Low In High School. We recorded it in France once again, and it's fantastic. I would imagine a January release, but I don't mind if it's later.

    New interview with Morrissey:

    https://www.morrisseycentral.com/mes...-the-interview

    sam:
    Finally, any small regrets?


    M:
    Oh, I never make my regrets small … if I can help it. Oh. Umm. Robert Smith. I said some terrible things about him 35 years ago … but I didn’t mean them … I was just being very Grange Hill. It’s great when you can blame everything on Tourette’s syndrome. [laughs]


    sam:
    but you’ve never met him?


    M:
    Oddly, I was in a pub near Buckingham Palace perhaps ten years ago … and there he was … staring over confrontationally. I take no moral responsibility for whatever I said in 1983 … after all … who does?

    Also,

    sam:
    I have heard your new studio album for 2020 and, interestingly, it’s an unexpected swerve from “Low In High School” or “California Son”. Is it hard to sit still and wait for it to be released?

    M:
    No, because the understanding was that I would have to.

    sam:
    Why did you record in France, yet again?

    M:
    The studio is terrific, there’s lots of animals, and no television. I feel completely safe in France.

    sam:
    Songs like “Jim Jim Falls” and “Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know” sound very powerful, whereas “Love Is On Its Way Out” is just beautiful. Are you constantly torn between this gemini hard strike and soft stroke?

    M:
    It’s a good question. You know, there’s a constant search … or desire … just to be allowed to do it … just to be allowed to record, at will, doing you’re own thing … and that search doesn’t end. Even now, at my age, I wait for someone to say “It’s OK now, just go in and record.”

    All I think of after watching that video is that nothing's changed for me. It's just an opinion...some people can disassociate, some can't...neither side has the high ground in terms of saying the other is wrong.
