Mozzer lives with the Queen
Whilst 'The Queen Is Dead' is recorded, Moz lives here
Location: 66 Cadogan Sqaure, Chelsea, SW1X 0EA
Description: Back in 1986 The Smiths recorded 'The Queen Is Dead' with Stephen Street at the production helm and the band are in the full vigor of their greatness.
Johnny Marr's chords are biteable as he leads Andy and Mike with his soaring attitude.
Morrissey, bolder in demeanour and at his vocal best, then resided here at Cadogan Square.
It is here that Geoff Travis, the boss of Rough Trade records, serves Moz with a writ to determine whether 'Hatful of Hollow' counts as a contractual album!
Bizarre in the extreme as Rough Trade was nothing before The Smiths, work that out!
