I've been meaning to post this for yonks. It's by a group called Perfect English Weather who are the singer and songwriter from late 80's Brighton-based indie band The Popguns. The singer, Wendy, was a pretty big Morrissey fan and used to perform in her Kill Uncle t-shirt.
They had quite a few cracking songs.

Hit Town is on their rather good album, Isobar Blues, which came out in 2016 I think.
Not the greatest of songs itself but an interesting take on Morrissey fandom nonetheless.


It starts, 'you never sneaked into my room, you never read my diary,
I never got past Chapter 1 of your autobiography'.

Far Out Magazine: Johnny Marr discusses first meeting Morrissey at a Patti Smith concert (November 30, 2022)

In a new interview, Johnny Marr discusses first meeting his former Smiths bandmate, Morrissey. Marr opened up about the incident during an appearance on the podcast, The Line-Up With Shaun Keaveny. On the show, guests are invited to pick their dream festival, which brought him onto the topic of Patti Smith. The former Smiths guitarist recalled sneaking into the Apollo in Manchester to watch her in 1978 and stumbling upon Morrissey for the first time.


Excerpt:

He explained: “Funny enough, it was actually for the real first time Morrissey and I met, but we met really in passing, when I went to see Patti Smith on my own in 1978. I was 14, and none of my mates wanted to pony up for the ticket. We used to always sneak in. I talked about this in my book quite a lot. We used to sneak into the Apollo.”
