X-ray Spex


Morrissey opened his Brixton concert in 2022 with a line from their song: "Oh Bondage! Up Yours!".
He replaced "little girls" with "I" and doesn't state the song's title:

Some people think little girls should be seen and not heard, But I think "oh bondage, up yours!"

Towards the end of the Brixton concert, he wore an X-ray Spex t-shirt with "Brixton Bonfire 2022":
