In case you hadn’t noticed, over the past few weeks/months there has been an increasing amount of Morrissey related posts here at hintofsarcasm.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Morrissey, that is why there are so many posts about the guy, especially around about now, since he has just got to Number 1 with his new album, Ringleader of the Tormentors and Number 3 with ‘You have killed me‘, but HoS was meant for other things. Not just Moz news.

So, from here on in, all Morrissey/Smiths related postings will be found at ‘‘, a brand new blog dedicated to the man himself and all that he may get up to.

The first posts have been added today, so, get over there!

I will, however, leave you with this little gem, recorded at 3am in the morning after returning from the pub one night a few weeks ago..enjoy!

It’s here!

Finally, Ringleader of the Tormentors, the long awaited new album from Morrissey has fallen onto my doormat.
Courtesy of HMV it arrived this morning, the release day, first thing.

Obviously I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet as I picked it up off the mat whilst rushing out to work, but it is being imported to my iPod as we speak.

The debut single, You have killed me, charted at #3 in the UK yesterday, which isn’t too bad, though it could have gotten to #1 if it hadn’t been for that stupid song, Crazy, or something, which got to the top of the charts on downloads alone. Quite obviously a fix.

I had already heard the first three tracks from the album, as they had been leaked, but, I abstained from listening to the others, all of which were readily available on the internet in various forms (including a full official playing on myspace), for reasons which I convinced myself were valid, sound quality, etc.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so eager to make the trip home on the bus.

First LP playing

Using my fathers old record player, I listen to ‘You have killed me’ for the first time on LP.

After that, I dug up his original first release 1983 copy of The Smiths first album and listened to it as it was meant to be heard.
Sounds amazing.
