Did you see what he did? It was immediately obvious to me.

This list is all about Roxy Music. He once said that he couldn’t ever listen to them after discovering that Bryan Ferry was a supporter of Fox Hunting. Fast forward to 2019, and swathes of his own and general music fans are doing the same about his own support for a political party. He’s put out a list of 10 songs and in so doing craftily negated a inconvenient personal stance that so far hasn’t been picked up on.

Revisionist Morrissey.

Oh Hello!

Come back “Bryan Ferret” all is forgiven. Morrissey separating the Artist from the Art. How very timely.

Probably not the best timing for him to claim that the 10 most important albums ever are all by white people.
And not one of them Irish. But then we are the Black's of Europe That's it, I'm calling Michael D to revoke his passport.

Je Suis Julie has noticed that True to You has edited Bryan Ferret out of the list of Morrissey's favourite albums. Roxy Music has been replaced at number 9 by Henryk Gorecki Symphony Number 3.

I have them all except the Sparks record, and as much as I love Horses, Ramones and Raw Power, only the Velvets & Nico would make my top ten.
