Shouldn't that say re-signed?

The company has represented the former Smiths guitarist as a songwriter for a number of years, publishing his last three solo albums: 2013’s ‘The Messenger’, 2014’s ‘Playland’ and 2018’s ‘Call The Comet’.

Could it be the difference between representing him as a songwriter before and now as an artist? And his records will no longer be on his New Voodoo label.

They've distributed/manufactured his music for ages.
I was trying to interject the idea that it wasn't really a story involving Morrissey (or some huge snub etc), as Marr clearly had some form of relationship with them for a long period of time. To wit: the NME article was included as it managed to not mention Morrissey at all for once :)
FWD.

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
Happy for Johnny. His solo albums, although not perfect, have all showed he still got it as a songwriter and a musician.

Somewhere in a Hollywood studio Alain gets the order to turn the volume of his guitar up to 1 1, on a scale from 1 to 10 t!

Yep don’t get too excited Morrissey haters, FWD is right, it should say Marr has been resigned with BMG

which should come as no surprise, as Marr is a very nice person that makes very safe music and when BMG says ‘jump!’ Marr asks ‘how high?’


:cool:



Edit: Aw, the Morrissey haters don’t like my post. :oops:

Well, one could only hope that BMG quietly resigns Morrissey too:)

I don’t think Morrissey’s music is the problem. Alain’s tunes are as safe as Johnny’s, and the same pretty much holds for the other co- writers. And this is not a criticism. But is any record company willing to release an album that takes its title from the MEN arena bombing ?

Of course people buy his music, people by music by ‘artists’ like Lady Gaga, etc

Does that mean it’s actually good?


No.


Surface, we’ve been through this a million times, record, ticket sales, popularity does not mean the artist is an Artist or creates good music.


I’m happy for Johnny, he’s a family man paying the bills, it’s a job for him.

It's not good in your opinion, clearly it is to some people.
