Chris Gethard’s Morrissey fandom is put to the test in this song-naming challenge - The A.V. Club

It’s no secret that Chris Gethard is a huge fan of The Smiths. After all, he’s got Smiths lyrics tattooed on his arm, as well as the signature of the band’s singer, Morrissey. It’s why, when he came to Chicago to perform at our comedy festival, we figured we’d put that knowledge to the test. Facing off against two Smiths/Morrissey fans, Gethard attempts to become the undisputed superfan that all others should bow to. Can he do it?

The Smiths Saluted In New MOJO Magazine - MOJO
30 years since The Queen Is Dead redefined British rock, the stories behind their 50 Greatest Songs, plus Morrissey movie latest and Marr memoir update.



THE NEW MOJO magazine (MOJO 273 / August 2016) is a Smiths extravaganza, with the stories behind their 50 Greatest Songs plus brand new insights into their art from the likes of Richard Hawley, Hans Zimmer and Elbow’s Guy Garvey.

...Meanwhile, exclusive access to the set and star of the Morrissey biopic due next year brings new perspectives on The Smiths and their singer, including more on the influence of Morrissey’s friend Anji Hardy, who died of leukaemia in 1977.

“Everybody knows about Morrissey’s fixation with the Moors Murders,” says the film’s writer and director Mark Gill, “and, of course, the first song he writes with Johnny Marr is Suffer Little Children. Anji’s sister said that Anji was fascinated by the Moors Murders and true crime, and you wonder if that influenced Morrissey. They met at a concert where she was wearing a New York Dolls T-shirt, and they connected over music.”

Elsewhere, Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr reveals the motivations behind his memoir, publishing in the autumn: from the example of his friends Nile Rodgers and Andrew Loog Oldham to the fact that “every single one of [the existing books on The Smiths] except one is a total load of shit.”
