I was a bit sad on this occasion, having read that Morrissey has been fighting cancer. I have already said what I have to say about The Smiths, so no need to do anything here but link to it, in case it matters to anyone. (Doubtful.) But hey, on the bright side, they have been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, that "Cracker Barrel of cultural shrines," which has to be a cheerful prospect. Imagine Morrissey catching up, at long last, with Andrew Rourke and Mike Joyce at the induction ceremony. That will be the opposite of awkward! How fortune's wheel spins and spins!
With the Mariano DC record, this evening's "Physical Evidence," I did something that Young Me would have done. I slapped some spoken word goodness on top of those beats. To varying degrees I think it worked, as long as you are tolerant of wide variance.
