I think I bought Color of Success the day it came out. Morris Day solo lp? That was an EVENT...

surely the one redeeming moment of Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back was "Morris Day and the muthafuckin' Time!"

and the bit where the girls are all posing provocatively around the van.

Anybody who hasn't seen Graffiti Bridge yet, should. Morris and Jerome suggest a menage a trois to Ingrid Chavez in song.

I just began my run of re-watching all of the Prince movies again. I'll get there sometime soon.

vh1 classic shows "the bird" every time I turn it on. I've seen it three times this week alone.

Nah, I'm just waiting until I see it at my local book store - but Matos, if you put yourself through a author review on Amazon I promise to go out of my way to buy it. (sadly I coudn't think of any Morris related quotes to go with that)

MORRIS DAY>>>>>>>>>>>>>>PRINCE

David Allen (David Allen), Sunday, 4 April 2004 04:45 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

An argument over which persona is better: I'd still go with Prince - inspite of all his bullshit at his peak he's a lot funnier than Morris - see Black Album for proof (greatest comedy album?)

I still demand Morris day for next Basement Jaxx album (and Jesse on Guitar "Jesse play me one of those sexy solos"

Jedmond (Jedmond), Sunday, 4 April 2004 04:58 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

dude morris just sang over prince's scratch vocals. im not sayin morris aint the shit.. but the time was all prince for the most part. until later on of course.

The Time released an album called Pandemonium a few years before Killing Joke did.

Yeah, but even Jaz Coleman isn't crazy enough to fuck with Morris Day.

I mean, Morris Day might threaten to do the Oak Tree or something!

i still like the idea of a Jaz Coleman v. Morris Day FITE!
-- Tad (llamasfu...), December 7th, 2002.


I cannot stop laughing at the mental image of Morris Day angrily oaktree-ing at Jaz Coleman, who huddles inthe corner whimpering, "No... please... NO MORE!!!"

its amazing! although who put that one together i dont know. what are they going to sing together?!

mr x, Thursday, 31 January 2008 15:26 (eleven years ago) Permalink

what was that sitcom he was in?...I recall he was a bit of a stiff as a comedic actor, which surprised me, given his larger-than-life stage persona...

My wishlist: Umbrella --> Please Don't Stop the Music --> My Drawers (Please let this happen) --> (oh of course it'll be Jungle Love, but still) Jerk Out or Get It Up or 777-9311. Cause of course they are going to do an at-least-four-song medley right? I hope the segment lasts 30 minutes.

matt2, Thursday, 31 January 2008 15:43 (eleven years ago) Permalink

i want them to play cool, the stick or get it up.

Morris & co. may not have played on the albums, but damn they were a shit hot live band from the get-go. Listening to live boots from '81 -'83 and they are killing it!

The Original 7ven album came out last week! Gotta get me a copy. More tweety pies should be talking about this track:

The Original 7ven are now The Orignal 6ix and some dude they'll be auditioning on guitar. Bummed that they couldn't hold it together for a full tour.

watched Graffiti Bridge for a larf the other night - Morris it's sole redeeming quality.

His departure might have something to with he's playing with D'angelo on his upcoming tour...

I'm happy to hear Jesse has something on deck. It'd be cool to see him with D'Angelo but not as cool as The Time.

my friend grew up around where jerome lived. he said he used mow his lawn with a riding lawnmower wearing a 3 piece suit <3

still dont get how rhianna was the partner for their grammys performance a few years back. the time are such a boys-will-be-boys kind of group, its a bit weird. though i didnt mind. and i liked them dancing together.

was listening to ice cream castles recently, and didnt totally get why a song called if the kid cant make you come (in favour of the kid, not against him), is on their album? surely that didnt fit with the film setting the kid and morris against each other? a strange oversight on princes part there.

anyone seen morris lately? im seeing him in a few weeks, with mark ronson, and erm, cee-lo.

I'm reading the Duane Tudahl book on Purple Rain — I had no idea Morris Day is a kick-ass drummer along with everything else that's great about him.
