It simply is.This simply ain't true. It was spring 1990 and a whole new movement was afoot. Floppy haired, be-fringed blokes, plying their baggy beats. The Madchester thing was massive. The Charlatans, The Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, P Scream - they were all pretty much at their peak. Morrissey was an odd looking, irrelevant, indie anachronism struggling to find songwriters, a band and a purpose. Even singles like this (which were clearly amazing) only received lukewarm reviews.
