Day 2324 - Spent the day in Peckham
Morrissey has released the official video for Spent The Day In Bed, which features both the currently banned footballer, Joey Barton, and the 'anti-drag queen', David Hoyle.
DAVID HOYLE - VIDEO STAR
It had previously been mentioned by Barton that Alan Bennett was also supposed to be featuring in the video, but that didn't transpire.
The video is set in Peckham Liberal Club, and starts with Barton wheeling Morrissey into the club in a wheelchair - a modern day Lou & Andy - before then cutting to the ceiling of the club, which has the words Spent the Day in Bed written on it. The square ceiling tiles have instantly made me think of Johnny Marr, as he uses such imagery in a lot of his work, so I am pretty certain that this is a Morrissey nod to Marr.
PECKHAM LIBERAL CLUB, WITH IT'S SQUARE CEILING TILES - A NOD TO MARR?
For the majority of the video, Morrissey is sat on a stool singing, whilst his band play their instruments. David Hoyle enters the stage for the, "time do as I wish" section, and does a little dreamy dance watched by Morrissey and a peanut eating Barton. Towards the end of the video, the band and Hoyle push Morrissey around in the wheelchair, whilst Barton sips coffee - it isn't a video that will have broken the bank!
BARTON AND MORRISSEY - A LOU AND ANDY FOR THE MODERN ERA
Presumably Alan Bennett was supposed to play the character in the wheelchair, but perhaps he didn't like the idea of it, or perhaps he was never actually going to be in it, and Barton mixed him up with Hoyle!
My favourite part of the video is when Morrissey sings the line, "no castration", when a small smile comes across his face, much like that of a naughty schoolboy.
There has been no sign of Morrissey in The Wrong Arms (which looks remarkably like Peckham Liberal Club) since my last blog entry, but there has been some tweets from the official Morrissey twitter account. On Saturday evening an old photo of Morrissey was posted, which has him covering one eye with his hand. This photo instantly reminded myself and a couple of the other BRS members of the MorrissysWorld blog, which also featured such photos.
The other two tweets from the official twit account came yesterday. The first was announcing that Morrissey would play KROQ on December 10th, and the second was a coded tweet, "NW1/90048".
It has this morning been announced by the NME that there will be Pop-up Morrissey shops in Camden and LA when the new LP is released next month, so that postcode tweet was a clue to this. The very fact that the official twitter account is posting clues, and not just making announcements, is further evidence that the account is being run by Morrissey himself, and NOT by some BMG bod, but just as with MorrisseysWorld, the fact that this has been 'officially denied' is enough to convince most people.
