I'd get such a shock I'd probably...

I'm in such a Smiths mood at the moment.

Possibly because every new album I have bought this year post Shearwater's Rook and Okkervil River's The Stand Ins has been a disappointment. Sure I wasn't expecting much of Chinese Democracy, and the new Killers album is kind of catchy, but dopey as all hell and I still don't get the "Are we human or are we dancer" line.

So it's the Smiths. What thirty something lad doesn't have a Smiths related memory? I mean my later years at Uni involved a lot of mooning around, wondering why this girl or that didn't love me, listening to the Smiths, on cassette no less.

Oh, well, what difference does it make?
