Exactly a week ago, Morrissey was live on Janice Long’s Radio 2 show. Miraculously, they’ve archived the show, and you can listen to it in full. I’m listening in now. There’s a long interview, and apparently there will be some live music as well.

Update: It’s a fascinating interview, but I’m really not crazy about the music (the two songs I’ve heard so far, anyway). On “The world is full of crashing bores”, I’m really not crazy about Boz’s guitar sound; he uses dirgey 80s effects. It’s not a great song, either. Our man Moz has never really found a songwriter to match Johnny Marr. ‘Irish Blood, English Heart’ is better, but I’m still not crazy about it. It sounds like an early Morrissey b-side, with a bit more of a U2 sound on the guitar. His words seem much more direct than they used to be.

Another update: ‘I like you’ is quite good. I had heard a live version of this song. It’s sweet, poppy, and quite likeable. Boz (or is it Alain?) still persists in using a nasty 80s overdrive sound though…
