As the recent autobiography and increasingly absurd press utterances have confirmed, Morrissey is...well a bit of a tool these days. Like the song goes... ‘we hate it when our friends become utterly hateful parodies of their former selves’. The moment in his book where he confirms that all his success been solely down to himself is the moment that you can’t take him seriously any more. This from a man who doesn’t play an instrument and has never written an entire song in his life.
However unlikable he becomes though, there will still be interest in his music and the news that he has signed a contract to produce a new album means that there will be some self proclaimed ‘masterpiece’ for us mortals to chew over within the next couple of years. For the moment we have this interim live run through of the Lou Reed classic and its perfectly respectfully done and a decent enough tribute. He is still a funny man as exemplified here when he shouts appropos of nothing ‘I Cannot Stand George Allagiah’.
Its in two formats, a 7” which has a B side featuring the first track off ‘Your Arsenal’, and a 12” featuring the same tracks plus a few extra live things. So a little while til’ a proper comeback but Morrissey expects high standards; you can be sure that heads will roll at the Rhino label if this doesn’t hit number one and stay there for the next three and a half decades.
