Anybody remember the classic Warlock Pinchers song "Morrissey Rides a Cock Horse"?

12:31, you're about as clever as John McCain's withered colon.

I bought that selfsame Warlock Pinchers 12" at the long-lost Peanut Records in Lomita CA the first week it came out. That's how hardcore a Smiths/Morrissey fan I was way back then. Rockin' song, too.

eli paperboy reed is opening the entire US tour

Feb 16th?? Isn't that a Monday? Aren't most records released on Tuesdays in the US? Is there an American label attached to this? I see the Decca logo on the cover, I'm thinking that between
the logo & date, that this is UK release info

Didn't Moz say that after the last tour, he wouldn't play the Sates again for a "long" time? Isn't that why he played five freakin' nights @ Hammerstein? I'm just sayin...
