Mexrrissey: "The Boy with the Thorn in His Side"
The former Smiths frontman and champion of the underdog gets a Mexican makeover
Fans of Morrissey have always tended towards the obsessive. Now the theatrical indie singer has become hugely popular in Mexico, where musician Camilo Lara formed his band Mexrrissey to celebrate the work of the British star, in Spanish, giving each song a Latin arrangement that is radically different to the original. The response has been packed houses around the world, as the band's translations breath new life into classics including 1985’s "The Boy with the Thorn in His Side", which they play here as they wait for the 100 bus in London on a suitably melancholy English evening.
