View Full Version : NME's Conor McNicholas wants to piss Morrissey off

Here's an extract from the OMM Magazine (today's Observer) in an article about the NME...

"Staff are wary of making eye contact with me (Eva Wiseman, journalist), but the atmosphere is bullish. Last December, Morrissey claimed that the NME was trying to 'misstate, misreport, misquote, misinterpret, falsify, and incite the bloodthirsty' after remarks attributed to him on immigration were splashed across its cover. The legal battle is ongoing - but today, the editor is mischievously contemplating a feature on Rough Trade Records, The Smiths' alma mater. 'I like the idea of Morrissey on the cover,' he smiles, 'He can't block it, can he? No. Good.'

The article goes on to talk about the NMEs dwindling paper sales, and the lack of writers of the quality of Morley, Parsons and Burchill.

Also, in the same issue, there's a nice full page article by Paul Morley on Band reunions. Guess what the main subject is? I'll get a scan up soon.

Paul Morley 'writes' for the nme? Sweet jesus. I'm so glad they pissed Moz off, thusly forcing me to set fire to and denounce the rag.

Are you in your early twenties?

Paul Morley, Julie Burchill, Tony Persons, David Quantick etc started as NME contributors.
