Morrissey continues.

Sagging reactionary and tepid pop irrelevance Morrissey has got a new song, 'Spent the Day in Bed', and it's being played by Chris Evans on Radio 2 tomorrow morning. It's from Morrissey's forthcoming album Low in High School.

Gonna listen? Give a shit? Think there's still something there because the last round of B-sides had the occasional sparkle? Or what?

I would still go to see sweating fat mess Morrissey in one of his live sweatings and electronic vegan diatribes if only that I've not yet had the chance.

Last time Morrissey was near Leeds, other sweating fat mess Stewart Lee was doing one of his self-consciously knowing amusement sweatings at Leeds Town Hall.

Present-day Morrissey is Stewart Lee's sweating Black Lodge doppelganger.

Never been to see Morrissey, but I did get stuck in the Merrion Centre car park for about an hour as my arrival coincided with the end of a concert he was doing at the First Direct Arena and a legion of Morrissey fans blocked the entire car-park by all trying to leave at once. I consider this experience to be equivalent to actually attending the concert.

I wouldn't like to think how many years it's been now since Morrissey started putting me off him more and more with every single thing he did and said.

He is a difficult person to imagine bumping into out and about. Perhaps his aloofness and focus on widescreen issues has something to do with it. I could totally imagine watching ..say...Mark Rylance trying to decide on the most appropriate olive oil to buy and perhaps even offering him some advice about toner cartridges. I couldn't imagine seeing Morrissey having to tie his laces or take a new set of blinds to the counter.

Could be the second coming of Christ this morning, if it's only being broadcast on the Chris Evans show I'm not interested.

I saw a Smiths tribute band last year and imagine that was much more entertaining that seeing the real thing these days

The single is very slight.  He's a mad old biscuit these days but I'll always give his stuff a listen.  Been a long time since I wasn't disappointed, You Are The Quarry for me.

Morrissey's forthcoming album Low in High School.

Ah, what a clever title, appealing to someone who feels a misfit at secondary school.

Think there's still something there because the last round of B-sides had the occasional sparkle?

Isn't the notion of A and B sides a bit redundant.  You only play one side of a CD, last time I bought one-though that was over ten years ago for me, so it may have changed.

The name might be old-fashioned, but you can still get extra tracks on CD singles.  Though CD singles must be well on their way out?

This is fantastic.  Sweating and crumpled doppelganger.

First thing to note is he's nicked the electric piano riff from Roxy Music's "Editions Of You".

Terrible title,

Subconsciously mangled from 'The Low Spark of High-heeled Boys' by Traffic?

It's just terminology though, isn't it? The term 'album' comes from collections of sheet music and, later, 78s packaged in literal albums.

I am delighted the tracklisting reads exactly as it should, far more amusing than the failed attempts of any internet knobbos or Quanticks.

My friend worked in Waitrose in Altrincham. As well as footballers and soap stars, apparently its customers included Morrissey and Johnny Marr.

Imagine if they bumped into each other! That would be the most awkward accidental supermarket meeting ever.

New single sounds like Chocolate Rain.

He's bloody awful now and has been for years and years.

'Bus, boss, rain, train'.

Christ Moz, if you don't want to bother, don't bother.

I presume the song (and first verse especially) is a reference to this:



He certainly didn't put a shift in on those lyrics - christ's sake.

The lyrics are indeed hair raising, but I don't think it's that terrible of a thing overall. The verses have something of a Kill Uncle vibe about them, and the whole thing's infectious enough, really, if you can get past the truck that's coming out of his mouth.

Anyway I'm looking forward to the album. I quite liked the last one, dreary as it was at times. Relegating Drag The River to the bonus tracks was criminal, though. It's the most affecting thing he's put out in years.
