"Noise Is The Best Revenge"
(Morrissey/Boz Boorer/Gary Day)


This song must have been written at some point in 2004. Its only confirmed studio recording is Morrissey's appearance on Janice Long's radio programme on BBC2, on 17 December 2004, with musicians Boz Boorer (guitars), Jesse Tobias (guitars), Gary Day (bass), Dean Butterworth (drums) and Michael Farrell (keyboards). "Redondo Beach", "It's Hard To Walk Tall When You're Small" and "I'm Playing Easy To Get" were also recorded on the same occasion.

It is not clear whether or not a proper studio version was recorded by Morrissey. Questions to people involved lead to conflicting answers. If a non-BBC studio version was indeed recorded, it would have been at the end of 2004 alongside material meant to be used for b-sides on the "I Like You" single (which ended up being shelved), but it would also mean that for some reason Morrissey preferred the radio session, because it's that version that he decided to release on the "Redondo Beach" single (see below).


This song has yet to be released in studio form otherwise than as the radio session mentioned below.
