young morrissey has a lot of feelings about the sex pistols

Morrissey has a lot of feelings. It’s what makes him a great singer/songwriter and also what defines him as a difficult baby monster. It seems Morrissey’s been developing these tendencies since at least adolescence, if this letter he penned to music magazine NME is any indication. In 1976, a 17-year-old Morrissey wrote in to the magazine to complain about the Sex Pistols. Yup. Keep reading »

“Iron? No. Barbaric? Yes. She hated feminists even though it was largely due to the progression of the women’s movement that the British people allowed themselves to accept that a prime minister could actually be female. But because of Thatcher, there will never again be another woman in power in British politics, and rather than opening that particular door for other women, she closed it.”

–What I wouldn’t give to have a direct line to Morrissey like The Daily Beast must. I’d love to just call Morrissey up and be like, “So what do you think of the latest episode of ‘Louie’?” (“Charged by negativity.”) Or, “What’s your take on pop tarts?” (“A terror without an atom of humanity.”) Today, The Daily Beast published Morrissey’s thoughts on the passing of Margaret Thatcher. (Analysis: He’s dancing on her grave.) I mean, this is the guy who wrote “Margaret On The Guillotine” about the late British Prime Minister. Sample lyric: “The kind people / Have a wonderful dream / Margaret on the guillotine / When will you die?” His whole screed is worth a read, if only for its succinct analysis of all that was wrong with Thatcher and her record of political and social injustices. Though there will certainly be those for whom such remarks have come too soon. [The Daily Beast]

Morrissey Disses Bowie, Gets With Rick Astley Instead

In a busy Morrissey-filled week, sometimes important Morrissey Watch news items slip through the cracks. Like Morrissey’s burgeoning feud with David Bowie. It seems Bowie wasn’t too keen on Mozzer using a previously unreleased photograph of the two of them for the cover of the reissue of “Last of the International Playboys.” We’re sure Morrissey is writing a passel of scathing songs about it, and in the meantime, The Boy With A Thorn In His Side created an alternative album cover. This one features Moz-sticks posing with unlikely friend Rick Astley. May the never gonna give up each other’s deep affection. [Pitchfork]

Oh Morrissey! He’s had such a busy weekend! On Friday, “The Boy With a Thorn In His Side” took to the stage at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and took Beyonce to task for purchasing bags made out of rhinoceros. Beyonce’s choice of bags, claimed Moz, are responsible for the extinction of the rhinoceros. Mmkay!

Another complete Morrissey mindfuck? His Friday show was introduced by Patrick “McDreamy” Dempsey. Because, yes, totally — friends that coif together, stay together.

But wait! There’s more!
