    Fiona Dodwell: "The Mythology Of Morrissey" (November 16, 2021)

    Re the sub-species comment - a theme in Moz's lyrics is the idea that treating animals with cruelty makes us less than human. I think I agree with him. I'm sure there are many people in China who agree with him too. 'Are those the words of a "fully paid up" feminist?' They are very similar to...

    Fiona Dodwell: "The Mythology Of Morrissey" (November 16, 2021)

    'He hasn't left any room for misinterpretation'. His views on race? Moz is a big fan of James Baldwin. I guess that tells you quite a lot about his views on racial politics in America? Kevin Spacey - Moz suggested that sexual impropriety is grey, not black and white. Strange for a fan of Oscar...

    Morrissey Central "YOUR VACCINATION:" (October 27, 2021)

    Both videos are fairly innocuous. One is about the US National Institutes of Health being involved in animal experimentation generally (like all governments, no doubt), and not related specifically to the development of any current covid vaccine; the other is basically saying vaccines are fine...

    Morrissey Central "YOUR VACCINATION:" (October 27, 2021)

    I love the way Skinflint actually thinks he is 'punishing' someone by blocking them. It's hilarious.

    Morrissey attends Joan Collins in conversation - The Lowry, Salford (October 17, 2021)

    What does 'normal' mean? Especially in the realm of human relationships? Maybe he thinks that what he does in bed just isn't anyone's business? It's not complicated.

    Morrissey Central "IF THERE’S SOMETHING" (October 9, 2021)

    So Moz is basically saying - thank you for flogging this dead horse. And he's right. It's Smiths karaoke.

    Morrissey in 1979? - @nb1972 / Twitter

    The pic on the left is not a great angle. The pic on the right looks very like Moz.

    Johnny Marr / Instagram: "Back in the same spot 38 years later. Camden Electric Ballroom. 21st May 1983."

    The Smiths were great. Are great. But as a moment in time. A period in history. Johnny remembers them fondly. But he's a very different man now. And he looks at peace with himself.

    Las Vegas Weekly: "Should Morrissey Fans Allow His Ugly Recent Rhetoric To Affect Their Love Of His Music?" by Geoff Carter (August 26, 2021)

    The truth that there is a difference between sex and gender. “If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss...

    Las Vegas Weekly: "Should Morrissey Fans Allow His Ugly Recent Rhetoric To Affect Their Love Of His Music?" by Geoff Carter (August 26, 2021)

    The silliest idea is that Moz has somehow changed - how could the man who wrote 'it takes guts etc.' be so cruel and unkind? Moz has always taken an extreme stance on animal rights. He supported the Animal Liberation Front in several interviews back in the 80s. And does it really surprise anyone...

    Las Vegas Weekly: "Should Morrissey Fans Allow His Ugly Recent Rhetoric To Affect Their Love Of His Music?" by Geoff Carter (August 26, 2021)

    The same tired old list. In other words, things Morrissey has said that some people disagree with. And as for JK Rowling - she has been cancelled for simply speaking the truth.

    National Review: Music for the Masses: The Debut of Pop Fascism by Armond White (Aug. 20, 2021)

    Great article. It is the role of the artist to be anti-establishment. As the bodies pile up in Kabul, I wonder is Lady Gaga starting to regret singing at Sleepy Joe's inauguration?

    Morrissey included in list of "anti-vaxxers" in today's LA Times Article (update: now removed)

    The best way 99.9% of us can 'protect' ourselves - protect our physical health, our mental health, our economy and our general wellbeing - is go out and lead a normal life.

    Most counties have about 10 - 20 intensive care beds per 100,000 population. Most winters ITU beds get pushed to capacity. It just never really makes the news. https://www.oecd.org/coronavirus/en/data-insights/intensive-care-beds-capacity

    Professor Of Rock YT: "How A B-side Became The Anthem Of A Generation" (July 5, 2021)

    I agree. Always sounded like a B side to me. Throw away riff and throw away lyrics. Despite that though the song has a feeling of drama that is very attractive.

    The best single ever released by The Smiths. And their best performance on Top of the Pops.
