    The Smiths A-Z: "Pretty Girls Make Graves"

    True, lot of anti-white as well as anti-black racism in America now, eagerly egged on by the media.

    Morrissey and Miley Cyrus's collaboration

    Lived in America for over a decade, unfortunately. I repeat: it's an emotionally inarticulate country. Am I trolling? Who knows? Or cares.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Pretty Girls Make Graves"

    It's much more aggressively homosexual now, at least in Scotland. We have the gayest parliament in the world. Our First Minister (about whom many Sapphic rumours swirl) is obsessed with sexual minority rights.

    Morrissey and Miley Cyrus's collaboration

    'Of course Hicks and artists understand emotions.' Never lived in America, have you? Laughing here. Incredibly emotionally inarticulate country.

    Little Man, What Now?

    So is this where the song title comes from, then?

    Morrissey and Miley Cyrus's collaboration

    No, Hicks did not understand subtlety or emotion either. Southern preacher-type boy.

    Morrissey and Miley Cyrus's collaboration

    Dear god, that cover is terrible. Americans don't understand subtlety or emotion, and thus can't cover Smiths song. Toss her to the crocs. As Bill Hicks once said of Cyrus's useless caterwauling dad Billy Ray: "I'm just trying to rid the world of all these fevered egos that are tainting our...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Pretty Girls Make Graves"

    I don't think it's necessarily jealousy so much as the fact that some other guy (supposedly) would just come along and take her off him, easily doing (somewhere down the line) something Moz couldn't just do so easily, f*** her. It's self-loathing mixed with betrayal and embarrassment and scorn...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Hand in Glove"

    It's Moz singing to Marr, isn't it? Superb song.

    Morrissey Central "Texas massacre" (May 27, 2022)

    The UK media obsessing over this vile atrocity has been one of the most prurient and disgusting things I have ever seen, as if it has anything to do with this side of the pond.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Miserable Lie"

    "I know the windswept mystical air/it means I'd like to see your underwear" is brilliant, cynical and knowing and funny and art-bullshit-puncturing. 'I’m really ready to be burned at the stake in total defence of that record. It means so much to me that I could never explain, however long you...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Pretty Girls Make Graves"

    Oddly necrophiliac imagery. Suppose pretty girls do indeed make graves. Creepy stuff, if oddly blackly, bleakly funny. Depends on our sense of humour, I suppose, your sex, and whether or not you like women. Definitely not normal imagery or thinking or adjectives: "jungle...graves...Bermuda...

    Mr T Experience Cover what Difference Does It Make

    I will always kind of liked this Mr T Experience cover of What Difference Does It Make, from their excellent 1992 album Milk Milk Lemonade. Some people here...may not agree with my assessment. Shrug. :rock: And here's a live version I had never seen before ten minutes ago, just to further...

    Kelly Clarkson covers "How Soon Is Now?" for Kellyoke

    Christ that's risible, emotion-free drivel. Way to truncate and slaughter a classic.
