My Morrissey knowledge takes a serious downward dive in regards to anything after Maladjusted.
I'm ashamed to say I don't even own the last album.
Although I saw him on that particular tour.
Morrissey - Let Me Kiss You. Amazon.com. Used.

When BLK JKS came out I saw it as a positive. The same thing with Die Antwoord.
With Die Antwoord as a starting point I wanted to look into more South Africa rap/hip-hop. Thanks to the magic of the Internet I was able to track down MaxNormal.TV and Sibot. I'm sure there is more out there.
Is there some sort of homegrown, hip-hop-esque, music of the townships? The baile funk of South Africa? I don't know. I'm asking.
When I was there in 2001 people predominantly listened to British and American music. I didn't come across a lot of domestic releases the way I did in New Zealand. Maybe South Africa has been releasing a ton of pop and rock. Maybe I managed to miss out. Please point me in the right direction.
MaxNormal.TV - Good Morning South Africa. iTunes. New.

I believe it has something to do with their marriages.

An eclectic discography, some releases much better than others.
This is not a favorite.
Swirlies - Damon Andy Rob Ron: The Yes Girls. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

This record was a secret pleasure. But there shouldn't be anything secret about it. I'm happy to have it on compact disc.
Kenny Rogers - 20 Great Years. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

Sepultura, Carcass, Morbid Angel, Death, Slayer. For some reason, both companies had decent metal options.
I've since sold most of those discs (regrettably). And I'm probably in debt to both companies.
But it was worth it.
Sepultura - Chaos A.D. Princeton Record Exchange. Bargain metal.
Not that things got worse with time. But hearing them for the first time really blew you away.
Me at least.
Verve - Blue. Princeton Record Exchange. Bargain rock.
