Despite my avowed Smiths worship, I've never been quite as obsessive about Morrissey's solo work. So it comes as a slight surprise how much I'm enjoying Years of Refusal, particularly considering its album cover makes Moz look a disgruntled ex-McMartin Pre-School employee. Don't be fooled by the dullery of the "Throwing My Arms Around Paris" video either. Yes, it certainly could've been spiced up by shots of the city or the celebutard, but it's a great song off a very solid album, perhaps Steven Patrick's finest since Vauxhall and I.

    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
