“I wouldn’t say it was our downfall but I think it was a blind spot of The Smiths, being so occupied with the media and notoriety – particularly one certain member of the group. I think that could’ve been dialled down a bit and would’ve helped the group out.”

So, I'm checking bedsits in Kiev. The singers that you fall in love with become whatever your imagination imagines, and Kateryna is so cold and bony and I can't wait to get to Ukraine. I haven't ever been there.

SAM:
It's not quite the same thing, I know, but you've also been playing a lot of Tiny Tim lately. What's the attraction?

M:
I was hoping you couldn't hear. Well, he was a genius - let's start with that. And I have...
