In todays 'Guardian' there is a short interview with 'Sir' Bob Geldof. He is asked what he thinks of people who criticise Band Aid, specifically Morrissey who declared it "undiscussable". He replies "What Morrissey has to say about anything is redundant. He's a bit like me - he says things for effect."

The Final Act: New Young Pony Club's Tour Diary With Katy Perry - The Quietus

Excerpt:

Bradford is a music lover it seems and we talk about that. "I've been trying to get Katy into the Smiths forever. And she never liked it. Then she calls me from Hawaii and her husband's played her some, and she's all – 'Oh My God, this stuff is great.'" One gets the sense that Bradford gives Katy quite a lot of things to listen to he enjoys. They seem to have a fraternal or paternal sort of vibe.​

review: 33 Revolutions Per Minute
By Dorian Lynskey

Meat Is Murder by The Smiths (1985) Buzzsaws and baying cows drape an eerie waltz as Morrissey murmurs that meat "is death for no reason / and death for no reason is murder." It remains pop's most *bracing statement about animal rights: "People tell me they became a vegetarian as a result of 'Meat is Murder,' " guitarist Johnny Marr said last year. "That is quite literally rock music changing someone's life."​
