message 1: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments OK so Tech has made it quite clear, 'no smiths, not even clips of morrissey performing smiths' songs live!'.

Now, I will confess, I have absolutely no idea what that leaves us with, I can't be sure that I have ever heard anything solo by Morrisey, or if I have, would I be able to identify it as being solo, or did I just assume it was The Smiths?

Let's see, your noms please by 10 pm on Sunday evening, any controversy, I am going to leave it to Tech to resolve, I am well out of my depth on this one.

This weekend's entertainment comes from Damo Suzuki of Can tomorrow night, then our Mammothfest competition reaches its climax on Saturday, it's grand final day, and one band will book their place to perform at Mammothfest in Brighton later in the summer.Could be a bit of a crazy weekend :-)

I only know about 4 Morrissey songs but I’ve always liked this. Sorry if it’s obvious!

theDuke | 5784 comments Well we did have the bed song he did last year Spacey, as featured on one of C. O. rounds..if ya short for a nom..did very well too, if I recall correctly! :)

And I choose to rock it up with this banging number!

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments none seem obvious to me!

controversy? morrissey? in the same sentence? surely not! :) despite most of the keech that comes out when he opens his mouth, he has produced some brilliant work, t.b.h., i prefer his 'solo' stuff to that of the smiths......and mrs tech loves him! still cuts it live, and when i think of all the quality he leaves off his set list, it amounts to an impressive body of work - only drawback for me is his tendency to include several songs per album that could be deemed as filler - don't want to see none a' these! thought of many nominations, going with this single from 'low in high school', complete with excellent ironic and bizarre video! terrible trousers.

Brass Neck | 3890 comments Writing as I do from 'a seaside town they forgot to (pull?) down); oh, the crushing ennui! Pass the razor blades. The video's a piece of social history (it is from over a quarter of a century ago); proper record shops, the cars, the fashions, the diddy CRT telly but, above all, the hair! Thought about nomming Bengali In Platforms, National Front Disco or Asian Rut but didn't want to fuel the 'controversy'.

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments good call, jemma, in fact they all are so far!


message 10: by Gordon (new)

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments Gotta love Lez's nomination just for the immortal couplet, "beware, I bear more grudges than lonely high-court judges..."

I'm torn between three that I love equally. I have a nightmare bus/train journey over the next 2-3 hours: I'll try to make my mind up over that time (I hope someone else will nominate one of my three in the meantime).

Why is predictive text so crap? It's taken me ages to type this because I have to correct nearly every word.

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments Ah! I hadn't spotted that Val already nominated one of my favourites.

theDuke | 5784 comments I wonder how Tech feels about Morrisey's excellent debut single Suedehead from Feb '88..as that has a very Smiths sound about it, and one that I nearly went for, but didn't cos it's so well known?

message 16: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments tech thinks it was a brilliant single from what i rate as his best album, 'viva hate', but smithslike? naw, i don't see it as too similar, although he did plump for another guitar maverick in vini reilly to play on these recordings!


message 17: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Are there any tracks he doesn't sing on? I just cannot handle that voice :-(

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments Okay, I'm back in as well - but I've got a splitting Headache due to the Heat so please forgive me, tech, for not spending too much time in listening to lots of Morrissey tracks today and maybe picking out a better one.

This was around about the 8th one that I listened to and I chose it mainly for a certain line in the lyrics! Hmmm? - I wonder if you can possibly manage to guess which one?!! - LOL!!! ;o> ...

message 20: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments There we go then, a big improvement on last week's turnout, thanks everyone.

I too would have nommed, if I could find one that didn't sound like The Smiths, or have him singing on it. But I tried 5 or 6 songs and alas, I failed and gave up.

My taste however has nothing to do with it - 12 noms means 4 votes each. As ever, voting closes on Thursday at 10 pm. Now, let me think, what could I possibly be doing that evening? I'll get it closed as soon as I can after then.

You seem to have disregarded Helen's votes Duke? Mind you, easy to miss when there's only 6 hours between her vote and your tidy!

message 36: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Sorry this is late, I have been trying t post it for ages, but I kept getting a message saying 'Goodreads is over capacity, try again later'.

I think that Suzy and I may have differing interpretations of the phrase 'a good voice', but it seems that more punters agree with her than with me. So that would be a first then :-)

Today's wall of fame - first place, Brass Neck's nom, Every Day Is Like Sunday. A solitary point behind, Johnny, with Suedehead. And Lez manages a spot on the podium this week with her nom, The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get.

With wooden spoons going this week to both Tech and Sj, and Helen just managing to avoid one, maybe I am not so wrong after all :-)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments oh yeah! a nominator's bust - that must be a first! it's what i get for going for the new music all the time! :)

well done the winners (for their ancient choices)

I did actually like your choice, Helen - I thought their Voices came together well. What I didn't like about it was Morrissey's occasional failure to sing at quite the same time as Siouxsie did, as it was supposed to be a duet, and his sense of timing really did let it down somewhat for me ;o>

Or, maybe I am being rather unfair on Morrissey, and it was actually Siouxsie who needed to keep slightly better timing? ;o>

If I remember, the two of them fell out soon after recording!

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments I wonder whether Stephen Patrick Morrissey and George Ivan Morrison have ever met. I bet they'd get on like a house doused in petrol and stuffed with gelignite.
