    Fiona Dodwell: "How Morrissey outran The Smiths (and why his critics will never admit it)" (February 18, 2021)

    Saying that I personally like something better, but that I think something else is technically better made is not a contradiction. Most children get that, but then, nobody who posts here is right in the head, so I shouldn't expect any better.

    Fiona Dodwell: "How Morrissey outran The Smiths (and why his critics will never admit it)" (February 18, 2021)

    I mean... what's she really talking about here? It seems obvious to me that Morrissey developed as a singer and a lyricist in his solo career. The fine voice that he's in from Your Arsensal especially through to, debatably, Years of Refusal makes his singing with The Smiths sound froggy and...

    Alison Martino with Morrissey (7 August, 2019)

    To quote a better lyricist, "I've been so worried about you lately. You look shit, and you smell a bit."

    Why It's Time To Ditch Your Morrissey-Loving Friend - The Quietus

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if these people could gain some perspective? Jimmy Page kept an underage sex slave in his cellar for over a year, do we throw over our friends who like Zeppelin, too? Morrissey in 2019 is a loudmouthed bigot of the exact same variety that can be found in most families...

    Morrissey interview: On Free Speech, Islam and Mainstream Media Fake News -

    These days, Morrissey's interviews read like transcripts of those scenes in kids' movies where the second banana bad guy character sucks up to the main villain. You just hate to see it.

    "Some Say I Got Devil" official video - Morrissey / YouTube

    Morrissey never quite got the hang of videos, but God, remember when they were at least adequately funded and made by professionals? Sam "Graphic Design is My Passion" Rayner is more damaging to Morrissey's image than a thousand more ill-advised hot takes. It's still a lovely album closer...

    The Guardian and the Morrissey Vendetta by Fiona Dodwell - tremr

    Has anyone met this Dodwell woman? Surely she is Morrissey in a wig and some sensible flats, right?

    The Morrissey Shoe - Morrissey Central (16 April, 2019)

    They look like they're meant for a ventriloquist's dummy. In other words, they're perfect for him.

    Morrissey at Johnny Ramone tribute in Hollywood (Aug. 26, 2018)

    I know that in a lot of ways, this is the least of his worries, but he needs to start buying shirts that he's capable of buttoning up.

    "Low In High School" review by Michael James Hall in The Line of Best Fit (7/10)

    The reviewer describes an album I'd very much like to hear. Whether this is the album Morrissey made or not, who's to say? High hopes can do funny things to one's ears. That said, after the relative disappointments of the first two singles, I'm feeling much more enthused.

    Johnny Marr in Daily Telegraph (AU)

    Lord, but he is a prat. I mean, Morrissey's eternally in the running for prat of the year, but whenever I get fed up with him for backing Farage, exulting in Brexit, calling Chinese people a subspecies et cetera all I need to do is look at the... smug right on-ness coming off of Maher to find...

    "List of the Lost" reviews in The Guardian, The Daily Beast

    Cold water in the faces of those who took Morrissey for some sort of poet or philosopher because his vocabulary outstrips that of a George Michael. In 2015, one might be able to have dinner with George Michael and come away feeling warmly toward him, whereas Morrissey's myopia has driven him mad.

    Los Angeles, CA - FYF Fest (Aug. 23, 2015) post-show

    I'm a fan of both and prefer Morrissey's music, but I would take a performance from FKA Twigs over Morrissey any day. She is a phenomenal dancer and performer; Morrissey's live show is lacking these days, and we know he dislikes playing festivals. I don't expect anyone here to agree with me, but...

    TTY: The hunter gets captured by the 'game'​

    I wonder if Moz knows he's posting furry fanart. Dear old man, he's become everyone's unintentionally hilarious grandfather on Facebook.

    TTY: Cameron on the run

    I don't know, he's drawn headlines for less hyperbolic statements than this one. Prince Philip, vile though he may be, did fight the Nazis, and Elizabeth served as well. Whether or not the Daily Fail bites depends on how slow the news week is. Someone in Morrissey's camp finally broke the...

    TTY: Morrissey Band 2015

    Re: Morrissey Band 2015 - TTY Sadly, Morrissey knows that putting up his own money into a new Morrissey album is a losing investment. He just hopes to appeal to the emotions of an imagined, good-hearted or nostalgic record executive, hence the whining. He's always been as concerned with his...

    Read Morrissey's Scathing Open Letter to Al Gore and Live Earth - Rolling Stone

    Annoying as it is, he's 100% correct. A diet with meat as principal source of protein is completely unsustainable, and counter to Gore's message, so, therefore, meat needs to disappear from Gore's talks on conservation. However, so is the lifestyle of a touring musician, as many here have...

    Morrissey meets with Elektra Records president and Zack de la Rocha

    Steven "UKIP apologist" Morrissey hung out with Zack de la Rocha and still has all his original teeth? Wonders never cease. Morrissey loves to carp on about his pet causes in the shrillest manner possible, for the sake of provocation. de la Rocha is the real deal, whatever you can say about...
