Morrissey is not a singer; Morrissey is a mischevious, pan-sexual demi-god who resides in a luxury hotel somewhere on Mount Olympus. He sprang fully-formed from the forehead of Zeus and doesn't bother with things like newspapers, grocery stores or the chemist's.
His every utterance is filled with the utmost import - his motives are either shady and/or unfathomable, his relationships with mere mortals are fraught with drama, mystery, intrigue and a touch of the surreal; his voice is a siren song, and he sweats ambrosia.
Morrissey never loses a sock, does the laundry or picks food out of his teeth. He never stands on line, trips over a curb or empties the dustbin.
Nick Cave is just a singer who lives somewhere in the South of England.
