You can download a new single from The The's official website. "Mrs. Mac" is available for your enjoyment here.
Morrissey was in town last Monday playing a show at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. During Time Warp, Sharon called in to report that the Morrissey show was outstanding. She said that Moz played about 10 songs from the Smiths (this should be considered a delicious treat considering he normal only plays 2 or 3 songs from the band's catalog).

Max e-mailed with some more comments regarding the show:

Besides being an awesome show with Smiths songs and all he made a couple funny comments. First he said that after announcing the North American tour, Ann Arbor was the first show to sell out, he said " we were afraid you might eat us alive", after the huge response he added, "but the night is still young". Later he said while walking around our little town he was looking for our statue of Iggy Pop, he joked about expecting to see one, and we should build one. " Besides Iggy being a huge influence on a lot of people he also is a really great guy" He referred to him as Jimiggy too.
