"Action Is My Middle Name"

Travs Shinn

The Mozzer recently announced that he has a new album all ready to go – just no label to release it. (Label? What is this, the freaking Nineties?) Morrissey debuted three of the new tracks live on BBC radio. Each song is in the heavy glam-rock mode of his last couple of solo albums, but the clear keeper of the bunch is the brilliantly titled "Action Is My Middle Name," exactly the kind of sardonically obsessive sex rant Morrissey has always done so well. He tries to convince some handsome devil that there's more to life than books, you know, with a killer opening line: "Biting my initials into your neck."
