Morrissey Is Dead - The New European
By Nicholas Barrett

HE WAS THE HOPE OF THE SHY TEEN WHO LEFT THE PARTY EARLY, WENT HOME ALONE AND CRIED. BUT MORRISSEY’S RAPIER RHETORIC HAS TURNED DARK, SUPERFAN NICHOLAS BARRETT REPORTS
What It Really Means to Separate the Art from the Artist - Noisey
By Fergal Kinney

We spoke to Kanye, Brand New, R Kelly and Morrissey fans about that feeling when your fave becomes problematic.

Excerpt:

What do you do when a musician you love becomes problematic; when major transgressions – both alleged and proven – leave you trying to separate the art from the artist? Between Morrissey bigging up Tommy Robinson, Kanye’s pre-yetweets in support of Trump and the #MeToo movement empowering survivors to come forward with historic abuse allegations against other artists, fans have had to face up to uncomfortable truths about the heroes they once placed on a pedestal and plastered across their walls.

Included:
Iain Hamilton, 48, Glasgow – Morrissey fan
Tom Fisher, 18, Gloucestershire – Morrissey fan

I've just published the full 5,000-word interview in full - I think there's a lot of good stuff here for Smiths fans... I've also attached an image of the magazine version of the interview.

EXCLUSIVE: Johnny Marr on living in Altrincham during The Smiths, the influences behind his “dramatic” new album – and his jam with Macca - Altrincham Today
By David Prior



Excerpt:

JM: Yeah, the first house that my then girlfriend Angie and I bought was on the corner of Marlborough Road. That was the Smiths’ HQ. We lived there from 85.

AT: I knew your old neighbours!

JM: Did you really? Tell them I apologise! I apologise for all the noise coming in between the walls. In my defence, those noises went on to be quite popular songs, that’s...

I noticed a tattoo on Asia Argento’s hand where she has names tattooed on the base of her fingers. One says “Moz.” I don’t know very much about her, only having read about her upon Anthony Bourdain’s death. She posted a photo on her Instagram that shows her hands. I’m going to attempt to attach it, but don’t be surprised if it doesn’t show up here.

Separate thread again so the t-shirt collectors can see it in amongst the cd & vinyl posts (although it isn't available for individual purchase).

Not on the US Mporium yet as it's not the Sire version of the shirt :)

Pleased to see that Radio X released a full 1hr 25 recording of the In Conversation... with Johnny Marr:



They also posted the specific part where
Johnny talks about the split and subsequent help from other artists:



Worth a watch just for the Smiths tunes (and the story of how Hand In Glove came about).
Thanks to Radio X for the full event.
