Pitchfork has a Dean & Britta MP3 if you want to check it out.
Bradley's Almanac has the recent Sloan show from Boston up for your downloading pleasure. He's also got a live recording of "Ill Placed Trust" from 15 (!!) years ago. Yes, you read that last sentence correctly.
LA Weekly interviews Morrissey, mostly about cats and graves:
Was your cat maimed?
No, but he was very, very old, and he was arthritic, and he couldn’t go to the toilet properly and I would have to take him to the toilet, I’d have to do everything, but he was very, very happy, and as long as he was with me, he was thrilled to death. So, I held him at the last moment when they inserted the needle and, uh . . . I cried for hours and hours and hours. This sound came out of me, this sound of despair when he went, and I’d never heard it before.
Because I thought I’d be — I thought I could completely handle his death and I’d be fine. I’d look after him, I’d make sure everything was okay, and I’d make sure that his transition was as easy and comfortable as possible. And I howled.
I mean, I still have moments where I grieve again, out of the blue — does that happen to you?
Of course! Of course! You miss your pets. You miss Sir Doo-Dah or whatever his name is . . . You miss them and you feel for them, and my cat was an incredible character. He wasn’t merely a cat, he was beyond human. He had the most incredible personality, an enormous personality, and as tough as, as they say, old boots, and I still miss him, I really still miss him. Sorry, I’m boring you stiff...
Yep, sounds about right. I still think about Jarvis from time to time. Well, I guess i should tell Ms. Smith right now that cat #4 will be named Sir Doo-Dah. That's teh awesome. Cat #3's name, in case you're wondering, is going to be Mylo. But don't worry, I'm very happy with cat #2, he's not going anywhere and I expect he'll be around for a long time. And yes, I'm a big dork. Moving on...
On a slightly related note, here's an MP3 of the new Stooges track:
