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.

By DANNY ECCLESTON

Excerpt:

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.”

The Smiths’ seminal album is 30 years old. From a style perspective, from oversized knits to the quiff, Morrissey (the original sad boy) set the tone for emotionally charged male pop stars

A memoir of following Morrissey's 2015 South American Tour

I Will See You in Far Off Places - Amazon
by Aine Ni Cheallaigh

Blurb..."Áine and her wife Nora, self-described introverted bookworms, were happily ensconced in their small-town-with-cat life when everything changed. Faced with the death of Nora’s beloved mother and new twists and turns in Áine’s unfolding spiritual path, they both wanted more from life. More what? More of their beloved Morrissey. Two (quietly) raving fans with some U.S. shows under their belts hit upon a life-changing idea: follow Morrissey for his South American tour. These non-Spanish-speaking, comfort-seeking, fortysomething non-adventurers joined throngs of screaming twentysomethings in opening up to the mysterious, enthralling embrace of The Real and Proper Poet Laureate. Braving floods and medical emergencies (including one late-night trip to a jungle ER), searching for...
