  • Somewhat disappointed that the performance was not live, but given that I shall be at Manchester tomorrow I think I can let him off!

    Does anyone know if this was Moz's own choice or BBC who said it had to be?

  • I'm very sorry that this is off-topic, but I desperately need some help getting hold of You Are the Quarry in Istanbul.

    I've just started a month-long trip through Turkey, and I'm having a lot of trouble tracking down the new CD in Istanbul. Does anyone know where a decent CD shop is? I've tried lots of shops along Istiklal Cad (such as Megaviz├Żon and Ada) but I've had no luck. Sadly, no one even seems to have heard of Morrissey here!

    Cheers

  • Given Morrissey seems to mention how utterly awful pop (slob) idol is during every recent interview I wonder if the BBC deliberately put him straight on after Will Young. I found it quite funny myself.

    Will Young was the UK's first slob idol, for those of you who don't watch those kinds of things. He releases, as you would imagine, quite awful records. I once had the misfortune to hear his version of Light My Fire, words can't begin to describe how bad that record is...

    Oh, and yes, Morrissey's TOTP performance was excellent.

  • Can anyone tell me what happened to poor Morrissey's once beautiful set of teeth - they were pearly white and perfect when he was in The Smiths - now they're presentable but they somehow don't look right. Is it possible he was in a bar room brawl or in some domestic dispute in the early 90's? They seem to take on this appearance at the time the video 'The More You Ignore Me The Closer I Get' was made.

    I am not being mean spirited when I talk about this - I quite admire him for living in L.A for this length of time and not being bothered about the state of his gnashers.

    He's not, why should I be you might ask. All I can say to that is if you see a Smiths video then a more recent Morrissey video the change is quite startling.

    Furthermore has anyone else noticed how chunky and muscular Morrissey's thighs are - his chest and shoulders have also expanded over the years and his biceps are quite endowed - he is lying when he says he doesn't go to the gym. You don't become that toned/bulky just by eating carrots and round lettuce every day for your tea.

    On a more postive note it was great to see him on Top Of The Pops this evening, his natural second home. His presence was so refreshing in comparison to the anodyne/manufactured puppets who normally appear on there. Long may he return.

  • Great performance on TOTP - looked like he really enjoyed it.

    Two things were very different from the JR Show IBEH performance:

    1) More movement, ma much more animated Moz indeed.

    2) He traded the lounge suit for jeans, tee shirt and casual jacket which took about 5 years off him instantly!

    1hr 35 till Jools Holland!

  • well he looked so much better than he has recently, could the teeth issue be something to do with him getting in the boxing ring sometime during the mid 90's as he has mentioned in interviews?? or was that one of his famous fibs? as any self-respecting fan should know the t-shirts were of the much discussed but much unlistened to jobriath, who first made an appearance in the pregnant for the last time vid as he paraded round berlin. the vegetation around the crotch area made a reappearance too, this really was a classic totp performance, up there with the best of his smiths ones, which were all memorable and full of talking points. nothing to declair but his (cool) jeans

  • So if Morrissey claims that he doesn't 'perform' because only seals perform, what does he call miming a song whilst your band pretend to play instruments?

  • Watching Morrissey on TOTP this weekend shows that very little has changed in the 21 years since he first appeared there.
    Back then, The Smiths stood out like a sore thumb amongst synthesizers, happy-clappy dance music, tepid fizzless funk, and some sartorial tradgedies.
    Now it's pretty much the same; there he was sandwiched between the awful Frankee record and that hideous 'Bounce' thing(what the f#ck was that!!!).

    To see someone looking GODLIKE and singing "And spit upon the name Oliver Cromwell//And denounce this royal line that still salutes him" on a prime-time TV show is just staggering.
