morrissey frink thread!

I can't find anything about Morrissey & magic yet (closest is 'the carnivalesque') but he's surprisingly superstitious beneath all the social realist kitchen sink imagery. A lot of 'invective' is very like putting a curse on people or avoiding cursed people. And a lot of his self-loathing sounds as if he thinks a curse came upon the him - even the idea that producers actively shun a person is like a curse (lots of factors go into picking - unfortunately for Moz, socialiabity is one of them).




Don't know about "magic" but he definitely seems to believe in ghosts and the supernatural. His own books aside, he also talked quite a bit about it in this LA Weekly interview

He also talks a bit about the background of List Of The Lost in this one.

"The theme is demonology - the left-handed path of black magic."

This is said poster. {Not mine. Those are not my knick-knacks. Or my creases. Both unforgivable.}

Also, Mr Leighton's work was deployed for a couple of Jon Savage interviews in 1989, one for the Observer in March {'London Section' only, so us provincial types wouldn't get it} and probably the same article, or amended, for The Village Voice Rock & Roll Quarterly later that Summer.

Quite a good piece, although you get alot of Savage for a smidgen of Steven...

Pretty neat closing by Savage ~

"In his continued revenge on the world, he has delivered a series of epigrams which defines a marginalised England.
By that process, he has marginalised himself, but it's not a phase, it's his life
"... ?

.
Savage appears to have de-camped from the Moz side of the street in recent times. He should know better.

The man sent him a Billy Fury postcard once. In some cultures that's testament to troth plighting...

Everything's better with rum.

But for those occasions when rum is not an "acceptable" option, spreadsheets can be very calming. Only if they're neat and well-structured though.
Perhaps í should add rum while í'm spreadsheeting. {pie-eyed!}.
Couldn't make mine any worse. Cos right now they look like a...Tzolk’in Mayan Calendar?

Tangentially related, but I saw this being shared on Twitter again and his reply was quite funny.

"I have not been in contact with the dead, although I have had unfortunate dealings with 'The Sun' newspaper, which amounts to the same thing."

And I guess he did get his figurative stake burning a few decades later...

Morrissey is the gateway to the occult & suicide.

I really need to make a Morrissey as folk devil thread where we can gather all the evils he's inflicted on the world via being gobby & writing songs.
