Going to have to give this tour a miss but have high hopes for the album. Stuff he's previewed has been much more up-tempo than Ringleader ...

This was Jerry Finn's final record, wasn't it? A real pity he's gone. Not as interested in Moz as I once was, but will pick up the album regardless.

I never knew that. He oversaw some really important albums - albeit from a pretty narrow genre. You look at his career - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Finn - and you wonder how the Moz gig came about.

My mate managed to bagged tickets for standing at the RAH last week, and I picked up Salisbury standing today, so should be a good couple of weeks in May.

I swore I'd never see him again after the Roundhouse fiasco last year (or was it the year before?) after shelling out hotel and train tickets only for him to cancel a few days before the gig and no reschedule , but been a devout fan since 1983, been to about 15 Smiths/Moz gigs over the years, so I guess time is a great healer...

I decided not to bother with this too, was another let down by the Roundhouse fiasco - not a fan of the album cover either

I like that cover. I'd be tempted to go and see him again but it wasn't all that long ago I saw him last.
What's that on his arm?

Not sure what it is on his arm either

I last saw him in Hyde Park in July, so not long ago really - chances are I'll be able to ligg it anyway

It's out February 16th, but was leaked a couple of weeks back. It's not bad at all, very much in the same vein as the last two releases.

One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell is the highlight for me - cracking song!
