Very nice tweet from the legendary singer.



@officialmoz is an artist unlike any other. His voice is something from another age. So honored he performed my song Some Say (I Got Devil) on his new album. I love it and the album is quite special. You should all go listen to the whole thing. #newmusic #morrissey #woodstocklove

BLUE RONDO A LA TURK - Morrissey Central
July 8, 2019

"I liked them because they seemed two jumps ahead of everyone else. The mere sight of them suggested big league, but they didn't quite get that far. They were one of the very few groups that the Smiths supported, but there was a scepticism about them being just 'club models' … who asked and got. This was said also about very early Roxy Music … who appeared to be quite affluent before they'd even had a hit. With Blue Rondo, again, you suspected that they were given all of their fantastic suits for free whilst the rest of us had to dream of being able to buy SOMETHING that didn't look TOO abysmal. The main electric spark was their dancing which was very virile and athletic … and even though they came from the Blitz/Billy's scene they seemed like supermale...



"Last Sunday, while much of the British media were lauding Stormzy’s Glastonbury headline show as epoch defining, Morrissey posted a white supremacist video on his website, accompanied by the comment ‘Nothing But Blue Skies for Stormzy...The Gallows for Morrissey’. The nine minute clip lifted footage from the grime star’s Pyramid Stage performance while arguing that the British establishment are using him to promote multiculturalism at the expense of white culture.

There are also clips expounding the Great Replacement Theory, a far right conspiracy trope which holds that there is a plot of obliterate the white populations of Europe and North America through mass immigration...

shame there’s no moz in the 90s playlist but maybe they thought piccadilly palare was simply nowhere near the brillance of rupaul’s “super model (you better work)”
The Independent has a story on its website about presenter Kirsty Young stepping down, for medical reasons, from her role of interviewer for the BBC Radio 4 programme 'Desert Isand Discs'. It lists - presumably in their view - her Top 10 interviews,on DID. It says "The Smiths frontman is uncharacteristically chirpy in his interview with Young, talking about his relative ease with life aged 50 and how he’s “very glad indeed” he didn’t grow up to be normal."

The article says that Kirsty Young recorded 496 DID interviews. The Independent put Morrissey's in her Top 10. See how Independent hates Morrissey?

They certainly were happier times when that interview was recorded.
