"Nobody Loves Us"|
This song must have been written at some point in 1994. An instrumental was recorded in December 1994 at Miraval Studios in France, with Boz Boorer (guitar), Alain Whyte (guitar), Johnny Bridgwood (bass) and Woodie Taylor (drums), but no Morrissey.
It came together at rehearsals in January 1995 at Abbey Road studios in London, with Spencer Cobrin replacing Woodie Taylor at the drums. The song was recorded with producer Steve Lillywhite at Hook End Manor the following March-April alongside most of the material from the "Southpaw Grammar" album (although it only ended up being released as a b-side on one of the latter album's singles).
This song has never been performed specifically for radio, television or the web.
This fan-favourite has only been done in concert a total of 17 times by Morrissey. It was introduced on the 1995 Southpaw Grammar tour where it was on the setlist the first 8 nights. It served as setlist filler on the subsequent Maladjusted tour in 1997, as it was played only 9 times with long breaks in between.
There are no officially released live recordings of the song at this point in time.
