Morrissey's Manchester

    Lyrically unique, Morrissey saw 1980s Manchester differently. Where most recognised the derelict remains of a Victorian warehouse, he saw humour, where others saw post-industrial squalor, he felt the frission of romance. 

    As a result, the city became as much a aprt of The Smiths' output as the guitars, drums, and vocals. Unusually, these places still exist and provide the devotee with a place of pilgramage. 

    The most fundamental change any reader will notice are the continual changes to Manchester itself - a city in perpetual flux. Since the first edition, venues have been demolished, refurbished, or shorn of their identity. Now updated, Morrissey's Manchester has added new places to visit, more lyrical references and more background information on one of the world's most influential bands.

      ¡The Best Of!

        Following the launch of his solo career in 1988, “Moz” would spend the next 10 years composing and releasing six studio albums and a string of hit singles before going on a brief recording hiatus. On November 6, 2001, THE BEST OF MORRISSEY, a collection that brought together his most memorable work as a solo artist up to that point which was originally released on CD in North America only. In celebration of Morrissey’s career, we will revisit that classic compilation this year by releasing it, for the first time ever, on vinyl. THE BEST OF MORRISSEY will be available as a black double-LP.

        All the other studio albums the singer released between 1988 and 1997 are represented on THE BEST OF MORRISSEY with “Sing Your Life” from Kill Uncle (1991), “Do Your Best And Don’t Worry” from Southpaw Grammar (1995) and “Alma Matters” from Maladjusted (1997). Other tracks on the collection include the non-album single “Sunny” and the B-sides “Sister I’m A Poet” and “Lost.”

        All The Young People Must Fall In Love (Bob Clearmountain Mix) / Rose Garden (Live At The Grand Ole Opry, Nashville)

          All the Young People Must Fall in Love (Bob Clearmountain Mix) / Rose Garden (Live at The Grand Ole Opry, Nashville) is the fourth 7" release from Morrissey's album 'Low In High School'. Low in High School is Morrissey’s first studio album since 2014 and was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s Forum Studios. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (who has worked with Frank Zappa, The Strokes, Beck and The White Stripes to name a few). Morrissey’s talent for combining political statements and beautiful melodies is more prevalent than ever on Low in High-School, capturing the zeitgeist of an ever-changing world.

          STAFF COMMENTS

          Andy says: A jaunty, handclapping sing-a-long vibe belies this song's deeper message of love inspite of the chaos all around us.

          STAFF COMMENTS

          Barry says: Morrissey's new album is brimming with the sort of melancholy jangles and clever chord structures of yesteryear, but coupled with wry and ardent policism, a bit of conga and some flamenco stuff too. Lots of sounds, all worked into songs.
