    “If you haven’t been assassinated or turned into a public target by The Guardian then you are clearly doing something terribly wrong with your musical career.
    Being praised by The Guardian Arts Section has become a bit like receiving a love bite from Jimmy Savile.”
    MORRISSEY, September 2018.

      Ahh, and I was just thinking half an hour ago that Morrissey hadn't said anything stupid recently. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.

      What a fucking wanker. He's the Donald Trump of the music world. I'm sure he'll get rave reviews over at Stormfront. In other news, tour and album coming, say something stupid, get in the news.

      Wow. I've never actually heard this before. It seems this was recorded in 1968, the same year as the Rivers of Blood speech. For those interested, the lyrics:

      They're making this big confusion
      'bout repatriation (Rpt both lines)
      Mr Powell he is afraid
      That black man will take him to his grave
      We don't want no hostility
      We're just begging him for equality

      Run Powell run (x2)
      Run Powell run, run
      Black man a come

      You mouth talk
      With such a might
      You only making black man unite (Rpt both lines)
      You been ruling three hundred years
      And we've been living in hope and fear
      We don't want no hostility
      We're just begging you for equality

      Run Powell, run, run
      Black man a come
      Run Powell, run, run

      [tpt solo]

      Every man have a right
      Whether you green, black or you white (Rpt both lines with 'has' for have)
      No matter what you say or do
      You think of it, we are human too
      We don't want no hostility
      We're just begging you for equality

      Run Powell run
      Till you tumble down
      Run Powell run, run, run
      Black man a come

      It's a damn blasted shame
      Mr Heath join the campaign
      You can have your fun
      But I know freedom day will come
      And we will buy you a drink a' rum
      And then we will sing 'We Shall Overcome'

      Run Powell run
      Black man a come
      Run Powell run, run
      Till you tumble down
      Run Powell run
      Black man a come

      (Laurel Aitken, 1968, recorded in the UK)

      As the weather turns cold, the victim cardigan comes out of mothball'd storage, and wraps around his weary shoulders in that familiar comforting way, bringing warmth to his old bones as one singular thought enters his mind- "It's not me, it's them... It's never me... Always them..."

      In this context "Skinhead" has nothing to do with racism or bigotry, as I am sure that you are aware of. So no, it wouldn't be a more appropriate cover because skinhead lifestyle and music is about inclusivity and races getting on with each other, something Morrissey seems to have completely ignored. Morrissey, please do not cover Mr. Aitken or any other early skinhead reggae or Trojan artists, etc., because you simply have no fucking grasp of what that scene stands for.

      I actually agree. It's like something Old Morrissey (or do I mean Young Morrissey?) would say.
