A sweet senior citizen ode to Johnny Marr


New Member

It's been awhile since any Cover Me Badd acts (Blasphemous Guitars, Fauxasis, etc) stepped into Morrisseyland. But this weekend in San Diego, the elderly Geezer played with a rock & roll outfit called The Sweet & Tender Hooligans. Besides doing most of our set in bad Spanish, we offered up a little homage to the man behind the music. It was a tad loud (Morrissey's not the only one who sports a hearing aid for fashion) so we've included the lyrics below. We hope you enjoy....or cry blasphemy. Now, GET OFF OF MY LAWN!!! (.com)

I can't stand it, I'm outta here, I quit
I'ma set it straight, like Viva Hate.
I can't stand Morrissey's bitchin up in here
I can't believe it lasted for four years.

Suedehead you can kiss goodbye
the boy with the f***ing thorn in his side,
The King of the Rickenbacker Guitar
I'm tellin' y'all It's Johnny Marr

So, so, so, so I jangle sweet then I rock it supersonic.
Take the guy from New Order and I make Electronic.
Pretenders, Talking Heads, Modest Mouse, what do you know?
It's kinda fun bein a guitar ho, Ya know!

'Cause what you see you might not get.
Sweet & Tender Hooligans try to rock my shit?
Please. Who the hell do you think you are?
I'm tell you now it's Johnny Marr!

I can't stand it, I know you planned it.
I'ma set it straight, like Viva Hate.
Feelin California so I fly to Coachella,
rock "A Town Called Malice" with my boy Paul Weller.
You wanna know what this smile on my face is?
Bitch, who you think invented Oasis
and gave Noel Gallagher his first good guitar!?
I'll give you a hint: it's Johnny Marr!

Oh, lord. There's MORE!? Please make the aged self-promotion stop.

My secret's my enzyme.
those above videos defied the laws of gravity by managing to both blow and suck at the same time.
I watched the second vid once and then watched it again

just to see if I wanted to punch the singer guy with those goofy glasses as bad as I did the first time I watched it.

And I did


Ermm...I didn't like it much. The lyrics fell flat on it's backside. Not my cup ot tea. At least it wasn't an average cover of The Smiths though.


Geezer thanks for posting . Your keeping the flame of The Smiths burning and having a great time doing it. Like the line "The King of the Rickenbacker Guitar
I'm tellin' y'all It's Johnny Marr" As DAVIE says is not the usual cover ................to say the least! I like the odd twist you add to The Smiths/ Morrissey world.
Oh, and

just taking the piss, geezer. Videos fine, glasses fine, performance better than I could manage
