Morrissey at Livid?

Rumour has it that Morrissey is coming out of retirement to play at Australian teenage mookfest Livid. And this is just after I bought my ticket for the separate Mogwai show. Wonder if there's any chance of Moz doing a separate gig.

Hmm, a bit unlikely. Though The Cure played Livid in the early 90's, so anything's possible.

I wouldn't say that Livid is much a "mook" fest as, say, the Vans Warped tour, at least when it was just Brisbane. The thing is, you're just getting old.

Look at the bands lined up. They're mostly grunge/rap-metal.

And maybe I am getting old. I'm still buying records, though, so I'm still alive.

And if the bands aren't enough, there's also the extreme sports demos. Souns pretty mook to me.

You should've seen some of the fans at the Oye Esteban! gigs in London. There was moshpit mania there, folks.

If he makes it, I'm so fucking there, wherever it is. Oho yes.

Hmm... Trail of Dead are appearing as well, almost sounds worth going.

Check the Livid site. He *is* coming.

If there's no separate gigs, I'll be ropable.

Oh - forgot to say... I hope that you're not too disappointed by Mogwai. I saw 'em at Shepherd's Bush and they were abysmal.

Abysmal? How so? Did they stand there staring at their shoes whilst playing guitar or something?

Pretty much. Baldies do angry guitar without acknowledging audience. Only GYBE interacted less with the crowd, but at least they had filmstrips to compensate for the lack of personality...
