Moz at his glammed-out best
Now that Morrissey's autobiography is finally out stateside — sans a couple segments involving the singer's two-year relationship with photographer Jake Owen — it appears we can shift the conversation back to his music. Namely Your Arsenal, the Mick Ronson-produced LP that's getting a "definitive master" reissue on February 24th. No bonus tracks, though; Parlophone is letting the fan favorite speak for itself, which shouldn't be difficult considering how confident and loud this album is compared to the rest of Morrissey's solo catalogue.
If you're looking for some additional material from the same time period, the CD pressing does include a DVD rendition of Moz's Halloween concert at Mountain View's Shoreline Amphitheatre, which included key material from Viva Hate ("Everyday Is Like Sunday," "Suedehead") and B-sides, singles and rarities like "The Last of the Famous International Playboys" and "Sister, I'm a Poet."
