A collection of some interesting links we recently stumbled across:
Morrissey Rescues Elderly Woman Who Collapsed at Book Store Last Sunday, Moz — “who was there alone,” naturally — rushed to the aide of an elderly woman after she collapsed while shopping in the Strand Bookstore in New York City. The woman didn’t know who he was, but “was touched by this act of kindness from a nice British man.” [Queerty.com]
Rare Live Footage of The Untouchables from 1984 Check out some newly unearthed concert footage of the Los Angeles-based ska performing at The Distillery in San Diego in 1984, prior to the release of their classic album Wild Child. The clips include songs that never made it onto any of the band’s albums. [Marco on the Bass]
A Broken Frame At 30: A Tour Of Depeche Mode’s Basildon Writer Tim Burrows reassesses Depeche Mode’s second album, released 30 years ago today, by taking a fans’ bus tour of the group’s hometown of Basildon — and runs into some escaped pigs on the way. [The Quietus]
Remember Adam Ant Comics? Take a look back at the Adam Ant comics that ran in the pages of TV Tops magazine in the early ’80s, chronicling the singer’s “fantastic adventures featuring action, intrigue and apparently Satan.” [Retroist.com]
A Broken Frame is very underrated, even Gore describes it as the band’s worst album.
It one of my very favorites. Great intro of Martin to the world and the album art is one of my all time favorite covers.
But would Morrissey have rescued that kind old lady had he knew she was a Ramones fan? Doubtful.
