I saw this story about the play Irish Blood, English Heart and wondered if it's intentionally connected to Morrissey's song:

I noticed that the soundtrack for "SuckerPunch" has 80's covers on it. Track 8 is a cover of "Asleep" by someone named Emily Browning.

[email protected]: have you ever considered directing music videos?” no, but Morrissey just asked me to shoot a concert of his and I will
In a recent Rolling Stone Reader's Poll, The Smiths 'The Queen Is Dead' was voted the #7 Best Album of the '80's! While, of course, most of us would rate this album #1 all time, it is pretty mind-boggling that the uber-traditional Rolling Stone readership would rate this album among it's top ten of the decade!
I spotted this phone booth advert, newly placed this weekend at the corner of East 12th Street and Avenue A in Manhattan, depicting a mid-90's era Morrissey, a scribbled graffiti tag of "Kat" and, erm, a Nike logo? I'm suspecting it's not a sincere marketing campaign and rather the work of some handy vandal who snuck it in there, given the xeroxed-quality of the paper and print. Curious if anyone else has seen them out there?

MORRISSEY STARS IN KATSU’S LATEST FAKE AD - Animal New York​

Alex Lusty met Boz Boorer backstage at a Morrissey concert in December 2004 at London's Earl Court. They were soon recording together and their first musical collaboration was 'The OneThree' and the album 'Life Goes On' was released on black records in the autumn of 2005. Now they have both finally found the time to record new material, and Happy Martyr was born. Described as 'urban folk' or Ian Dury fronting early T Rex, the duo's music is a raw sounding, stripped down acoustic rap crossover. Tracks for the debut album were recorded between London and Boz's Serra Vista studio in Portugal, which was also the backdrop for the video to accompany debut single 'Painkillers'.
