    Back when The Queen is Dead came out Salford Lads Club issued a statement saying something along the lines of how they wanted to disaccociate themselves from The Smiths and were pretty pissed off the band had had their photo taken outside the building. It slightly amuses me that they encourage the association with the band now.

    Works both ways. Moz donated £20,000 to them.

    How does that work both ways? They weren't happy about The Smiths having their photo there AND Morrissey donated 20K to them??

    People change, it happens.
    Just ask Morrissey.

    We hate it when our friends become distasteful.
