Manchester: It Never Rains (book by Gareth Ashton)

I was recently given this book, which came out in 2019 (Empire Publications) which is the story of punk in Manchester as told by fans and key players on the scene who were there at the time.
Includes a few Morrissey mentions (disappointingly all referring to his name spelt as Stephen.....)

Carol O'Donnell (described as being early on the scene and lived with Pete Shelley)
'The first proper album I got was 'Hunky Dory'. I lived in Stretford and my mate was going out with Steve Morrissey and we used to go round to his house and it was him that got me into Bowie and Marc Bolan. After that 'A Portrait Of Donny' went out the window! This would have been around 1972/73. I remember he played 'Five Years' and I was like, Wow, and that was it, like you know? So I ended up begging him to play some more. One of my good mates was heavily into Gary Glitter, she absolutely adored him. He used to make my skin crawl, way before what we know about him now.

To the fans who connected to their lyrics that often spoke of isolation and a desire to belong. Wearing these t-shirts was a way to be a part of the ‘hidden by rags’ mentality that shied away from popular culture and opulence.

Displayed in this beautifully illustrated archive, this curated collection of vintage T-shirts from The Smiths & Morrissey offers a glimpse into the...

PETA UK (via Gloucestershire Live): "Morrissey writes to TUI demanding they stop selling trips to parks" (May 1, 2024)

He wrote: "TUI now has the dubious distinction of being the last major travel provider in the UK to provide a financial lifeline to these watery little hellholes. Contrary to your company tagline, the animals imprisoned at marine parks do not Live Happy.
"Anyone with a thinking bone in their body – or a drop of compassion – knows that not only does captivity kill the spirit of these imprisoned, intelligent, social beings, it often kills them."

He concludes his letter by asking: “Please will you find it in your heart – or realise that your business is tainted by these venues – and stop supporting these magnificent sea animals’ suffering?”
