I was reviewing BNLX's EP #5 when I ran across the press information stating that their song, "Garbage Strike (It's Rubbish)" is a "well-done Smiths homage/parody".

For those interested, BNLX is a band with Ed Ackerson (who used to be in a 90s band called Polara) and his wife, Ashley Ackerson (who used to be in The Mood Swings).

I don't know if it's working, but their shows are always packed. I'll be there to see them this Friday, with a Morrissey shirt on in silent protest. ​
I just heard the song from BBC 6 Music Cerys Matthews.

The band's myspace / official site haven't provided any info yet.

The song will be released on 11th April.

"Festival dates with Morrissey? Mary, take a bow - Independent.ie
Saturday March 05 2011

They are the most unlikely coupling. The Charming Man that is Morrissey and the 'tired and emotional' blues singer from Galway.

But The Diary [of The Irish Independent Newspaper] can exclusively reveal that Morrissey and Mary Coughlan are expected shortly to announce a number of festival appearances together in the UK this summer.

This development came about after the former Smiths singer turned up at Mary Coughlan's show in Dublin's Academy last Saturday night.

"Morrissey came to a gig of mine in Whelan's a few years ago so I knew he was a fan but it was still a shock when he rang up to find out what time I went on stage in the Academy.

"When I came on, there he was in the front row. I was slightly mortified," she revealed.
