"Heir Apparent"
(Morrissey/Alain Whyte)


The song was very likely written during 1996, or at the latest at the beginning of 1997. Recording information is not credited on any release but it may have been during the "Maladjusted" album session at Hook End Manor in January 1997, with producer Steve Lillywhite. Musicians on this recording were Martin aka Boz Boorer (guitars, clarinet), Alain Whyte (guitars, piano, backing vocals), Jonny Bridgwood (bass) and Spencer James Cobrin (drums).
