I heard it's highly unlikely that they will reunite. OMG can you believe that?

I also heard that somebody made a crime once at Coachella.

morrissey is already performing more and more smiths songs during his solo gigs. with the recent addition of girlfriend in a coma, william it was really nothing, and please please please let me get what i want during his latest shows, i don't think he thinks he needs to reunite the smiths any time soon.

abrahan
11-29-2006, 01:39 PM
and yes i do think it would be ultimately up to HIM.

I saw him at Universal a couple years ago and he played How Soon Is Now, Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me, There Is A Light That Never Goes Out, Rubber Ring...songs that should be played every tour, but never are. It was perfect.

Anyone who has a clay bust of Lionel Ritchie as their avatar can not possibly be real. I think abrahan might, unless they went to the trouble of making up fake sns. I might have to IM to see if its real.

This is a whole different board right in here.

I liked the Smiths and I like Morrissey. I hope they play Coachella in any form they choose. Whenever.

I hope Morrissey and Marrdest Mouse are both playing the same stage on the same night with absolutely no collaborations or mini Smiths reunions.

I look forward to it, thanks.

I just happened to see a setlist from the first night at Universal and freaked out, and the next morning maxed out my credit card buying a ticket for night 2.

I agree. Moz is why I went to the FIRST Coachella. I wasn't too fond of his last CD though. I listened to it once and only once.

Moz? Is that what they call him for realz?

Brits like to shorten male names that end in "y" with a "z." Like say Gary becomes "Gaz," Jeremy becomes "Jez," Murray becomes "Muzz," Barry becomes "Baz," etc.

You mean Mac does not exist in Soulseek.

Ok so Amy would be Amz, (or amzzz, as the case may be). I just wonder how that trend started.

im a douche. whats a good introductory album for the smiths. ive heard how soon is now but thats where my smiths experience ends...

abrahan
12-05-2006, 01:49 PM
you should start from the beginning.

their debut album is self titled.

abrahan

hatful of hallow is a good collection of their peel session recordings.

if it hadn't included how soon is now? it would have ended up as a top 10 single.

after purchasing the LP, no one wanted to buy the single at half the price of the album since hatful included it.

No, my name wouldn't really work with it. You kind of need the name to start with a consonant, followed by a vowel. My name starts with a vowel, followed by a consonant. And I don't know if it works with the vowel "i" (not related to my name, just pointing it out though).

Johnny Marr and I were hanging out the other day and he said that The Smiths will be the surprise performance at the campsite on Thursday night.

abrahan

ooooh i hope this too.

i also hope that on another stage there is Every Band I've Ever Wanted To See ALL FOR ME.

thefunkylama
12-14-2006, 08:58 AM
This stage would be called the "ALL FOR EWIGGY" stage and be completely filled with people wondering who Ewiggy is.

I also was drawn to Coachella for Moz in 1999, well that and Underworld. But i gotta tell ya, I don't think his new record is all that. The music itself seems a bit muddy, and I actually expected better production, considering.

I would love to see Moz again. There's no way that he'll play Coachella this year though. It's very unlikely.

I too went to the first Coachella because of Morrissey. I remember there being a rumour that J. Marr might be playing with Beck so I think I was hoping against all hope that something would happen. But i still had a blast as I've been coming back.

And am I the only one that like the ROT album? Sure it doesn't stack up to some other albums but I thought it was good.

fatbastard

Why don't you think Morrissey will play Coachella this year?

It's better than YATQ, which I didn't care for (with the exception of "Irish Blood, English Heart," which is quite good).

Separate question: I know that it's been posted elsewhere, but... what are the odds that Morrissey and Modest Marr could play on the same night (who would open for whom?)... same question (and just as unlikely) for Oasis and Blur.

Anyone who has a clay bust of Lionel Ritchie as their avatar can not possibly be real. I think abrahan might, unless they went to the trouble of making up fake sns. I might have to IM to see if its real.

Sorry I'm on the late show, but I think I just figured it out: is that clay bust from his video "Hello" - the one with the blind girl in the art class?

Anyway, I thought of something about a Smiths reunion. Both Marr and Morrissey pretty much despise Mike Joyce for him sueing them for royalties. Plus, they don't have anything to say to each , but offer no ill-will... Why don't they just ask Andy Rourke to play with them, if they can just get over their differences for a little practice and 1 show (or more). They can get a different drummer. If Rourke was being difficult as well, they could just replace the rythem section - they were pretty good, but replaceable. Let's face it, The Smiths were Johnny Marr and Morrissey. Maybe just those two could get together and get a rythem section and call it "Marrissey", or The 2 Smiths", or "Smith and Smith", or something like that? But in the end, it probably won't happen.

yeah, sure, why not, I'd love to.





so it looks like 09 will be the year.

Yeah I'm still holding out hope for them. They mentioned at their shows to people apparently that they weren't playing again but I don't know. They've played a festival successfully tool.

I was thinking in retrospect too and came to the conclusion that My Bloody Valentine is the best show I've seen as far as music quality, sound, crowd atmosphere, lighting, and material. I would like to see it translated to the polo fields.

I can't speak for the smiths live as I'm too young to have seen them but I've heard that their hows were stellar too. 80's-chella? It seems like it could be great.
