Burn Down The Disco Kill The Blessed DJ

I don’t have much in the tank today as far as music goes. I have to really concentrate on writing the book today so I figured I’d give my loyal fans (all 3 of you) something to tide you over for the weekend. I haven’t always been a huge fan of the Smiths. When I was in High School many moons ago, I was a bit ambivalent towards, what I considered, a whiny sad bastard style of music. The older I got, though, the more I embraced what I realized wasn’t sad bastard music at all, but more alternative love songs.

We all have this notion that love songs have to be sappy & kitschy. What Morrissey, with the help of Johnny Marr do is create a musical universe where they can express all their frustrations, thoughts & feelings in an honest sometimes even violent way. Their new wave style changed alternative music & was part of the Second British Invasion Wave that came through in the ’80’s along with the Cure, Depeche Mode & Culture Club (I left out Wham! on purpose). So here’s a great concert of theirs from 1986 in L.A. where I wish I was right now.
