180 Gram Vinyl Record
Heavyweight gatefold LP
Reissue of Morrissey's 1991 fourth solo album. Album download code included. Morrissey's fourth solo outing is as bold, passionate, sharp and vital as anything he's ever done. A little context is in order: producer Mick Ronson played guitar with David Bowie during the Ziggy Stardust days, and Moz clearly relishes allowing the glam-rocker within him to let it all hang out.
No less important is the rockabilly flavor of his backing band. Guitarist Boz Boorer also belongs to be-quiffed Londoners, the Polecats, and his pared-down twangs give "Certain People I Know" its hep-cat foundations. When the album was released back in 1992, Moz received massive flack for flirting with extreme right-wing imagery ("National Front Disco") but, as always, he was simply lobbing tricky subjects at us to stir up controversy. Your Arsenal is a magnificent dose of trouble.
