Balls.IE: "How Robbie Keane Found Out He's Cousins With Morrissey" (August 11, 2020)

"It was seven years ago that Robbie Keane discovered he's related to Morrissey, the frontman of The Smiths.

The two are cousins, a fact Keane's mother had forgotten to tell her son.

"You can see the resemblance - he's the image of my uncle," Keane told BT Sport before recounting how found out about his connection with the famous singer.

"I was in L.A. and I was in a shop. You might remember Dougie Freedman who used to play with Crystal Palace.

"One of his friends was in the shop. He said 'Ah, listen, my name is Liam and I'm best friends with Dougie Freedman and I look after Morrissey.

"He said he really wants to meet you. I said, 'Oh, really?' He said, 'Yeah, yeah, he's a cousin of yours'. I said, 'Is he?' I hadn't a clue.

"I rang my mother and asked, 'Am I cousins with Morrissey?' She says 'Yeah, my mother's mother and his mother as sisters'. I said, 'You only took 20-odd years to tell us that Morrissey is our cousin?' She goes, 'Ah, I forgot'.""

The Smiths - The Best British Band Of All Time? - God Is In The TV
By Loz Etheridge

Excerpt:

Morrissey cuts a more controversial figure than ever these days, now well past the point where anyone could feasibly even attempt to defend his offensive comments or totally unacceptable views. He has been reported as having said some truly shocking things in recent years, which none of us in our right minds would ever condone. To that end, for the sake of this article, I would like you to imagine, difficult as it may be, that after The Smiths split up there was nothing but an eerie silence, at least from one quarter of Manchester’s favourite sons.

Instead, let’s go back to a happier time – a simpler time when we found ourselves punching the air in delight at the lyrical genius of ‘Mozzer’, marvelling at the seemingly very intelligent, eloquent but shy, gangly...

ELIZABETH ANNE DWYER

"With this broken voice I beseech you, my friends, to offer prayers of hope and prayers of intercession for the recovery of Elizabeth Anne Dwyer, who is my mother, who is in trouble, and who is the sole reason for all the good and motivational things in my life. I ask particularly my friends in Chile, Mexico, Italy, Peru, Paraguay, Brazil, the United States, Ecuador, Israel and Ireland to offer their prayers for Elizabeth - for she is all I have, and our collective pleas of petition might wake the sleeping gods.
She is me, and without her vahaan koee kal hal … there is no tomorrow. I ask no more of you… for there could be no more to ask."

Steven Patrick Francis Morrissey.

"Vauxhall & I" exclusive blue vinyl included in HMV’s Vinyl Week (in stores Aug. 15, 2020)

  • 4,245
  • 71
In store from 15th August, pressed onto blue vinyl and limited to 1,000 copies.


Whatever you might make of his politics or his increasingly grumpy interventions into public life, there's no denying that during his time as frontman of The Smiths Morrissey was considered – quite rightly – to be one of the greatest lyricists of his generation. His post-Smiths work has been something of a mixed bag, but in a solo career that has so far produced 13 studio albums he has, every once in a while, turned in an album that reminds his fans why they keep the faith.

Of his first four solo albums, Vauxhall and I is one of his very best and includes one of his finest solo tracks in 'The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get'. The album joins our list of Vinyl Week exclusives this year with a new reissue pressed onto blue vinyl and limited to 1000 copies.
