From Winston Smith:

As the League Against Cruel Sports celebrates the sixth anniversary of the Hunting Act public figures, including Morrissey and Johnny Marr, have expressed their support...

Morrissey -
"The moral climate surely tells all intelligent people that the key to the extent of any person’s humanity is in their relationship to – and protection – of animals.

People who hunt are under delusions of possession and property and divine right, and their debasement of human standards is always evident in their outrage at ever being questioned about their activities.

The countryside, quite remarkably, does not need the Hunting Act to be repealed"

Johnny Marr -

"Sports which involve causing injury to animals are not only cruel but unnecessary and outdated. I'm sure that given the opportunity then the majority of people would choose to outlaw it.

I feel that those who think it's ok to abuse animals for so called sport are ignorant."...

Teenage Dreams: Sarah Bolger on her surprising religious side - The Independent

Excerpt:

Bolger is open and natural to talk to. She says "pardon me" quite a lot, and it is endearing. She is 19-going-on-40 some moments, and just a teenager the next moment: when she is asking for a Pepsi at the bar and talking about her dog and saying how much she loves music. Her favourite band is The Smiths. Her favourite Smiths' song is There Is A Light That Never Goes Out. "And if a 10-ton truck kills the both of us,/To die by your side,/Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine," she sings.

"I love the romanticism of it," she explains. "I am a...​

Eduardo: The Smiths ... very depressing.
Andy: April's making you listen to that? She's really into that indie stuff. I'm more of a Dave Matthews guy myself.​

Salvatore Bono, blogger with The Huffington Post, has conducted a low-yield if affable interview with Andy Rourke:

Catching Up With Andy Rourke of The Smiths

- When it comes to icons of the indie world, none are bigger and get more credit than The Smiths. During their time together from 1982-1987, the band transformed the decade's musical scene with their swagger, style and sound. Today, decades later, their music continues to do the same. The band has not played together since their famous split, and fans have waited for them to reunite through famous feuds and fights, though it looks as if it may never happen.
