Oh man, I just got a hilarious thought: Morrissey covering Holy Diver.... hell yeah.

There's another bar around here that's more of a meatheaded sports bar, but they have a couple of Smiths and Radiohead albums on the jukebox, which we always play whenever we go there. Now that's funny to watch.. That's one of my favorite things to do! I used to live in this total hick town in cent...

I think that "November" is a good song, but it shouldn't have been a single. It's too long and not enough happens. The video is absolutely atrocious. 5 + minutes of Morrissey dancing around in the desert rubbing his hands all over himself.... eeeshh. But seriously, I love the track. Bona Drag is a s...

when you put Moz'z lyrics in perspective with all the horendous crap that's out there, he's pretty good. He is pretty funny, but I still think *some* of his lyrics are too dramatic. For me, though, even the stuff that he says that seems melodramatic is one of his most endearing lyrical qualities. I...

But closer to the topic, I think there are some really cool songs on the new Moz album. America is Not the World, English Heart Irish Blood, I Have Forgiven Jesus...I like the production and most of the instrumentation on those songs. They're not the Smiths and not as musically compelling, but they...

This is from the tour diary of the band American Analog Set on their last tour with Pinback . It is a great example, to me, of how most artists probably feel (at least to some degree) about file sharing: So this guy catches me mid-ponder to ask about a t-shirt and he continues, "You guys need to get...

I used to be in this tech-metal-ish type band and the pause was one of our best friends. When you're trying to do like 10-12 different parts per song with all different time signatures, the pause can be one of your saving graces. It's also great for making everyone think the song is over (depending ...
