Autobiography by Morrissey
Autobiography by Morrissey
10 of 14 people found the following review helpful
It was roughly a decade ago when Morrissey announced that he was writing his autobiography. As a Smiths/Morrissey fan of over 20 years I was excited to hear this news but the project was obviously put on the backburner as Morrissey was then in the throes of enjoying a second wave of success as a solo artist after a period of self-imposed exile.

Certainly much has been made of this tome's bitchy tone and Morrissey's eagerness to settle old scores. Yes, the section about `Joyce Iscariot''s lawsuit against Morrissey and Johnny Marr is lengthy, but is nonetheless extremely intriguing, and the erstwhile drummer emerges with little credit.

Since Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys announced their reformation at a fan convention in 2005, OMD have enjoyed something of a career renaissance. Reunited along with Martin Cooper and Malcolm Holmes, the classic 4-piece performed their 1981 masterpiece, "Architecture & Morality", in full for the first time on 2007's highly successful tour. With the synthpop pioneers back in vogue, and with long overdue critical acclaim for the albums created during the band's Imperial phase in the late 1970s and early 1980s, there was fresh impetus to deliver some new product, and this eventually materialised in 2010...
