  • Morrissey was in a random mood at this gig.

    Can't remember exact set list but pretty much the same, longer than last nights, Morrissey seemed in a random mood at this gig, he wanted us all to know that he will have the last laugh.

    Like the new members, bit sad that M has left, i think Moz was on top form

    Once you get there, you probably won't want to leave for several hours, so bring a sleeping bag and toothbrush, friends.

    ...and how?
  • Strasbourg, you are too hot! Morrissey was on fire! Tonight’s show more than made up for the shortcomings of Clermont Ferrand. Not only did Morrissey do the two songs he dropped from the first night (Pigsty and Boy Yappy), he busted out not one but TWO BRAND NEW SONGS from the upcoming album!

    Moz appeared to be in a much better mood tonight. The venue was even smaller than Clermont-Ferrand’s – about two thirds of the size; it was very sweaty and tightly packed. Audience was also more raucous. Girl in a Coma got another rousing, warm reception from the French and Germans.

    00 Intro: Klaus Nomi -- “Wayward Sisters”
    01 HOW SOON IS N?
    03 BOY APPY
    11 PIGSTY
    12 LOOP
    14 PARIS
    19 IRISH B. ENG H


    Moz introduced “Something Is Squeezing My Skull” by announcing that they had been in what is called a recording studio making what is called an album. Cue: lots of cheering. I think the leaked lyrics posted in the forum are correct. 82238&highlight=new+songs+leaked/ []

    This song mentions several antidepressants and antianxiety medications. I think I remember lorazepam is among them. The ending refrain is something like “Don’t give me anymore!” It reminds me of Moz asking us in Melbourne, Florida last year if we knew about Ativan. I nodded yes. Morrissey said, “It could really help you, especially YOU (as he pointed at me).” I was abashed and hid my face in my hands. This new song is really crackin’! It’s got a lively tempo and yummy, crunchy guitars. Pure pop genius!

    The second new song “Mama Lay Softly on the Riverbed” seemed about as catchy as you would imagine it to be from the title -- a curiously quick-paced but maudlin song in a minor key. It seems to lament the passing of someone who’s hounded unfairly and promises at the end to join “Mama” at the bottom of the riverbed. Somehow I imagine that Moz envisions himself as this persecuted “Mama” or at the very least identifies strongly with someone unfairly driven to a tragic death. Hmmm, I wonder why ; p. At the end, Boz and Christopher walked up to the free standing snare drums and beat along with Matt an awesome rhythm bringing the song to a close.

    I think someone shouted out a question – what is the name of the new album. Moz asked if we were really interested, then asked how much money we had. Someone yelled, Do you take credit cards?

    You may note that the written setlist (verbatim) is not as punsome as last year’s, though the songs are familiar from last year’s tour. It’s probably because “our new friend Christopher Pooley” (sorry if I got the spelling wrong) wouldn’t recognise the strange titles.

    Moz wore a black shirt with brown trousers again. I think Th’Lads were all in brown again. Moz only threw out one shirt, though he did run off backstage at least twice. Kept changing into identical-looking black shirts. Apologies to the brown-lovin’ frinksters, but I think Moz in brown is my least fave look.

    Before “Crashing Bores”, Moz said, “Every song has a filthy story behind it…” and this caused me to yelp in anticipation because the last time he said that phrase, he was prefacing “The Boy with the Thorn in His Side” (aka PORN, as written on the setlists). The porn pun has very special significance to me, and my story is indeed a filthy one. Because of my yelp, Moz looked down at me and asked if I were in pain. Then he asked if I had something to say, handing me the mic, this time without the twirling teasing.

    I handed Moz the 2008 “So English, Frowning” calendar and apologised for it bec

  • So a big raspberry then to all those people who confidently asserted that the new Moz/Whyte compositions registered on the WB site were "clearly" hoaxes or working titles...

  • Well, it was my first Morrissey-concert and couldn't have asked for a better first experience. I met Mel and Guillaume, which was lovely, and I cannot thank Mel enough for telling me about the necessity for queuing, otherwise I would have showed up 1 hour before the gig... But I'm a newby, so that's my excuse.

    The venue was quite small and since I got there relatively early, I made it to the front row, left (Boz) side. Morrissey was in a very good mood, talkative, funny, witty and ... a bit cruel towards the crowd, such a teaser.... Changed twice (brown trousers, brown shirt, tie with the images of James Dean is what he started in, then he put on a navy blue shirt which he later took off and threw into the crowd, and he ended the show in a black shirt). They started with How soon is now. I won't tell about the setlist because the others have done that. I particularly liked Stretch out and wait, The loop, Sister I'm a poet and Pigsty. Since this was the first time I've heard the new songs, I won't comment on them. It was a very good show, the band was very energetic, Moz too, you could see they were having a very good time. He made a funny comment in reference to Strasbourg: "Once I applied to the European Court of Human Rights. And do you know what they said? They said that I should stuff myself... So I did!"
    I still can't stop smiling, I'm so happy! THANK YOU MOZ! :-)

  • Me and my friends flew from Portugal to witness an excelent performance from Mr Mozzer.
    The venue was lovely, very intimate, It was the smallest I've ever attended a Moz show...
    The highlights for me.. "Stretch Out...", "I'm throwing my arms around" (Great song), "The Loop".. Ahhhh...
    Girl in a Comma kind of sucked... can't they start to loose some weight maybe...
    Hope he decides to make some festivals in the summer, although Morrissey in the Festivals is a rather low scenery for most of us ....
