If you hate the triple-digit California weather and would rather sit in black, smoking a clove, drinking a cider, [lastfm]Morrissey [/lastfm] is here to help you be the moodiest mother-moper this side of the Mississippi. To “celebrate” its anniversary, EMI is bringing us a [lastfm]Morrissey[/lastfm] re-issue of Bona Drag off the resurrected 1960s Major Minor label i.e. the least celebratory music ever.
The remastered, reissued Bona Drag by the British “Man in Black” includes six previously unreleased songs and a plethora of unreleased pictures of Moz being gothtastic. If you can manage to move your sullen, languid fingertips, come with us after the break for more.
[lastfm]Morrissey[/lastfm] got to oversee the reissue so all the artwork was chosen by him, including the cover art taken from the “November” video. Most importantly of all, he is going to change his shirt on the cover back to its natural color, which is-shockingly-black.
