Chris Gethard’s Morrissey fandom is put to the test in this song-naming challenge - The A.V. Club

It’s no secret that Chris Gethard is a huge fan of The Smiths. After all, he’s got Smiths lyrics tattooed on his arm, as well as the signature of the band’s singer, Morrissey. It’s why, when he came to Chicago to perform at our comedy festival, we figured we’d put that knowledge to the test. Facing off against two Smiths/Morrissey fans, Gethard attempts to become the undisputed superfan that all others should bow to. Can he do it?

A memoir of following Morrissey's 2015 South American Tour

I Will See You in Far Off Places - Amazon
by Aine Ni Cheallaigh

Blurb..."Áine and her wife Nora, self-described introverted bookworms, were happily ensconced in their small-town-with-cat life when everything changed. Faced with the death of Nora’s beloved mother and new twists and turns in Áine’s unfolding spiritual path, they both wanted more from life. More what? More of their beloved Morrissey. Two (quietly) raving fans with some U.S. shows under their belts hit upon a life-changing idea: follow Morrissey for his South American tour. These non-Spanish-speaking, comfort-seeking, fortysomething non-adventurers joined throngs of screaming twentysomethings in opening up to the mysterious, enthralling embrace of The Real and Proper Poet Laureate. Braving floods and medical emergencies (including one late-night trip to a jungle ER), searching for...

Pete Shelley has allowed McDonald's to use Buzzcocks' What do I get? to TV advertise McDonald's new Big Flavour (the flavour being sawdust) Chicken Wraps?!
In the words of another Buzzcocks song: oh shit...

Am not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere. I did a search and couldn't find it. In Tom Hingley's autobiography "Carpet Burns: Life with the Inspiral Carpets" (Amazon link) he mentions using a rehearsal space "Out of the Blue" in Blossom Street, Ancoats. He mentions that the word was that The Smiths had also used the rehearsal space. Nearby in Sherratt Street there was an old pub named The Smith's Arms. The place was apparently decorated with pages from the "Daily Record" newspaper recording moments from WW2 including D-Day and VE Day. One headline there, says Tom, was 'Louder Than Bombs'. Now I understand that "Louder than Bombs" comes from Elizabeth Smart. Am just reporting what Tom wrote.
