Forgot about it and I was only half-interested only because I'd read the article in the Mojo special magazine. So I listened and I'm glad I did, I found it very interesting. Quite a cast of interviewees, too. I really loved hearing the technical aspects, how they put the songs together. (Being a big Joyce fan, I really wish I knew how he made his contributions with The Smiths.)

Btw, this is a quick lesson for anyone not clued in on some of Morrissey's musical style and direction in the early years.
I did find Andrew's storytelling and stabs at humor a little old after a while, though.

Thanks for the reminder Alabaster and the quick link Grim. <!--emo&:B-->Image<!--endemo-->

I thought this programme was really funny, although I agree that Andrew McGibbon's presenting was a bit too deliberately haphazard. It seems hypocritical that David Quantick, who has professed his disdain for Morrissey recently, should take part in this porgramme.

I liked the stories from Hook End Manor, especially Sugg's tale of how he found morrissey tapping his way through the dark with a blind stick! It's this strangeness that makes him all the more endearing I suppose. It did seem to potray him as being very aloof, however, dismissing people at the drop of a hat and trying meals before anyone else started. They shouldn't have pandered to him!
