Morrissey's album Southpaw Grammar produced by Steve Lillywhite
is finally finished after an especially long gestation period, and
will be available on July 11. The album contains these eight new
tracks: "The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils," "Reader Meet
Author," "The Boy Racer," "The Operation," "Dagenham Dave," ""Do Your
Best And Don't Worry," "Best Friend On The Payroll," and "Southpaw."
Morrissey is going to be memorialized in bronze down under. A
life-size bronze statue has been commissioned by Melbourne,
Australia's biggest indie club, Base. It'll cost in the neighborhood
of $6,500, and will be placed in the foyer of the club "for the
patrons to bow down to as they enter," according to a club spokesman.
