    Default Seriously, Moz and Marr?...

    http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/articl...iths-hits-comp

    ...What the fuck?

    Why in god's name do we need ANOTHER fucking Greatest Hits compilation. There's only two reasons to buy this when it comes out, and that's to get one actual song ("Jeane") and a fucking instrumental ("Money Changes Everything").

    Just get back together and start making NEW music, for chrissakes, that's when you can start padding your wallets with cash from ACTUAL new releases.

    Fucking travesty.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    No shit. Both The Smiths and Morrissey have enough "best of" albums to build their own house. Get back together and make some new fucking music. Or just tour already.

    They don't even need new music. Just get back together and tour the old stuff. I'd pay to see a Smiths reunion. I was too young to catch them in the 80s.

    I think they came to my town when I was 13. I was probably still listening to Chicago and top 40 radio at that point.

    I think they came a couple hundred miles from me when I was 4 or 5.

    I think the goal here is to get How Soon Is Now onto as many records as possible. They win in the number of releases containing the same songs category.

    100% agree. I don't get the level of the board's hatred of the Smiths at all.

    Eh, I just learn to ignore the drudgery and the hatred. It all just becomes on incoherent, testosterone laden idiotic rant after a while.

    Well - if they get the re-mastered part of this release right - it may actually be worth picking up.

    it is a sad truth that, eventually, the number of greatest hits/best of collections a band has is equal to 1/2 of the number of actual albums they released.

    I swear, it sounds like Morrissey is singing off key on purpose on Rank at certain times just to piss Johnny off.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    yeah pretty pointless. After the singles part one and two why would you need this? Besides I prefer Cindy Laupers cover of money changes everything the best.

    Ugh, I hate when he does that. I can't even listen to "I Want the One I Can't Have" off Meat Is Murder.

    That's the only thing I could think of to add to this thread---rather prescient.

    I thought it was nice they were working together even if it's a comp. I think a ton of people would love to see even a Morrisey/Marr 2009 Coachella!

    Would Morrisey/Marr headline Coachella? Or subheadliner? I really hope they wouldn't headline...

    Morrissey and Marr would headline because they ARE the Smiths, no matter what fucking retard British judges might say, Rourke and Joyce don't have any goddamn claim on the Smiths legacy.
