In [[Autobiography]], Morrissey states:<br>
"Kirsty MacColl had entered my life in 1985. She had arrived at RAK Studios in north London to sing backing vocals on Bigmouth strikes again. She walked towards me carrying a bulging Londis bag.
‘Today’s laundry?’ are my first words to her.
She laughs and opens the bag to reveal a cluster clutter of canned beer. ‘If I’m gonna sing with Morrissey I want us both to have a good time,’ she says, and chuckles that warm deep-in-the-chest giggle of hers. A friendship for life is born."
Johnny Marr recounts via [[Set The Boy Free]]:
"The first song we recorded was ‘Bigmouth Strikes Again’, which we’d been playing in soundchecks and which sounded to me like a single. It was good to kick the sessions off with a banger, and it was good too because we’d invited Kirsty MacColl to come down and sing backing vocals. It was the first time we’d met Kirsty. She was immediately great to have around, outgoing, smart and funny, and she knew a lot about making records. She and I stayed in the studio playing songs and singing until early the next morning, and from that night my relationship with Kirsty would become one of the great friendships of my life."
