    Spectator article by Brendan O'Neill: "Morrissey is the rock'n'roll rebel we need" (October 10, 2022)

    Fair enough, though I think this is a bit more complicated than that. The left-biased media-bias/fact-check site, places The Spectator as right of centre: While that's not the last word and might not be up to date, I don't think that one or two...

    Spectator article by Brendan O'Neill: "Morrissey is the rock'n'roll rebel we need" (October 10, 2022)

    A juvenile site. Not everything right of Che Guevara is 'far right', ffs.

    Spectator article by Brendan O'Neill: "Morrissey is the rock'n'roll rebel we need" (October 10, 2022)

    I remember. I visited Manchester not long thereafter and saw the bomb damage. But you're right that no one seems to mention it anymore, oddly.

    Bret McKenzie talks about Morrissey

    Apparently Bret McKenzie, from Flight of the Conchords, talks about Morrissey in this, as he was one of those responsible for the 'Everybody's Horrid Except Me' parody song used in The Simpsons: I say...

    Morrissey turns 63 - May 22, 2022

    Happy Birthday, to the last of the pop contrarians. All shills and bitches for the world of woke corporations from here on out.

    WatchMojoUK YT: Top 10 Most Evil Musicians - #10: Morrissey (April 12, 2022)

    Just more evidence of what imbeciles people have become in their scrabble to conform to the leftism that is now the cultural hegemony.

    Morrissey Central “SAY IT LOUD, I’M ME AND I’M PROUD.” (September 29, 2021)

    This does generally fit with comments he's made over the years about his own estimation of his output, though there are some minor surprises that would fit with a minor reshuffle of his judgement. (For instance, he usually, rather tediously, ranks his most recent album highest, but here we have...

    Fiona Dodwell: "Eight Tracks That Prove Morrissey Is As Great As He’s Ever Been" (June 23, 2021)

    Really bad selection. :fearscream: 'I Bury the Living' and 'Israel' are good candidates for his worst tracks ever, with some of his stupidest political commentary. 'I'm Not a Man' has a nice tune, ruined - again! - by crass lyrics. 'Once I Saw the River Clean' is one of the better recent tracks...

    Judge John Weeks dead (April 2021)

    As I understand it, the guitar generally came first and Morrissey came up with a vocal melody to fit the guitar. This is something I get from various interviews. Again, I'm ready to be corrected. I take the point about Andy's bass parts, but I'm not sure they got no writing royalties (maybe...

    Judge John Weeks dead (April 2021)

    Also, if this is a crowing over the judge's death, this kind of thing is ridiculous. It's not as if human mortality is a game that one of us will eventually 'win'.

    Judge John Weeks dead (April 2021)

    I wasn't there at the court case, so this is not authoritative, but the fact is there are two sets of royalties with music: writing and performance. Mike and Andy never sued for writing royalties, but for performance royalties, of which they clearly deserved an equal share (or more than equal on...

    “Everyone Is Horrid Except Me (And Possibly You)” Gets Officially Released (May 11, 2021)

    While I know what you mean, because he's 'self-deprecating', etc., the implication of songs such as 'What Kind of People Live in These Houses' and 'People Are the Same Everywhere' seems to be strongly that he is some kind of unique exception to general dreariness. It's there more subtly from the...

    "Everyone ultimately prefers their own race" - another example of Morrissey expressing himself badly?

    If these figures can be trusted, he's not wrong: Or, more accurately, if these figures can be trusted, the only people with an out-group preference are white lefties - those that the Chinese scornfully refer to as 'Baizuo'. Of...

    Morrissey Central "HELLO HELL" (April 19, 2021)

    Hmmm. I've just watched a clip in which 'Quilloughby' sings, with and to Lisa, "Everyone is horrid except me (and possibly you)". Got to be honest here, that was pretty hilarious. It's a shame that Morrissey has lost his sparkle and has to grump and grouch about this, at least, if this is the...

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    Plain talking. No shit. It's rare enough to comment on. I have full respect for his answers. We don't know, of course, if Morrissey really looked at him like he was St. Peter, but we can allow him a little leeway - either poetic licence or the benefit of the doubt.

    Morrissey Central "COME, COME, NUCLEAR BOMB" (January 9, 2021)

    Straw man, I'm afraid. Plus, all you're really saying is, "Freedom is fine as long as you conform to our political ideals."

    Morrissey Central "COME, COME, NUCLEAR BOMB" (January 9, 2021)

    So, caring about basic human rights like the right of assembly is apparently now right-wing. Well, the left have now fallen pretty far down the hole of cultish authoritarian scumbaggery, so it's no longer surprising to hear this rhetoric. Just wait till there are more BLM-related riots, though...
