By Brett Buchanan - Nov 19, 2017.


"Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson has reacted to former Smiths frontman Morrissey defending Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein following the sexual assault allegations against the two Hollywood titans.

Manson tweeted, “Morrissey has lost the fucking plot. Weinstein + Spacey unfairly attacked? For rape, sexual abuse+coercion etc. Fuck U Morrissey! Fuck YOU.”"

Don't recall Noel G ever singling out Morrissey songs before. Thought he was mainly just a Smiths fan who was also a bit matey with Morrissey. He's one of the most successful British songwriters of the last 40 years so it's interesting to hear his take on the new stuff:...

Aged 13 and newly converted to vegetarianism, the discovery of The Smiths’ album Meat is Murder was genuinely revelatory for me. It kickstarted a nearly 10-year-long obsession with Morrissey, the band’s charismatic and pugnacious lead singer – an obsession that carried on well into my early-20s.
