By George Simpson.

"JOHNNY MARR has been brutally honest about his painful memories from The Smiths break-up and shared how he talks to everyone from his incredible career except for Morrissey."


Speaking in a new interview with Uncut, the 58-year-old said: “[The Smiths are] one of the things I’m proudest of. One of the things that I must be proud about – not only myself but the whole group, because that was our MO. Whatever s*** was going on, nothing got in the way of what was coming out of speakers – and there’s a lot to get in the way.

“It’s a simplistic way of putting it, but one of the reasons I’ve been in so many bands was because I wanted to be loyal to them. It won’t come as any surprise when I say that I’m really close with everyone I’ve worked with – except for the obvious one. And that isn’t that much of a surprise because we’re so...

The former Communard says he knows every word to Jesus Christ Superstar – what else does he listen to away from the pulpit?


The song I can no longer listen to
This Charming Man. Much as I like the song, Morrissey has ceased to be charming for me.

Peter Bogdanovich, RIP


As per Thursday's Condolence Thread post - RIP.

Morrissey said of The Last Picture Show (via Mackie's letters):

"I'm going out to the states to redeem the social outcasts. My only real ambition is to cultivate Texas. I love Texas. You must watch "The last picture show", on BBC-2 on Sunday. Do you have BBC-2 up there? That film!
It was my first real sexual relationship.
To me seeing and loving a great film is like having a sexual relationship.
Real Gothic, man (as the Greeks would say)."

'I dream of moor, and misty hill
Where evening gathers, dark and chill
What has 2022 worth revealing?'

Emily Bronte.

Actually an excerpt from Faith And Despondency (1846):

"But, yet, even this tranquillity
Brings bitter, restless thoughts to me;
And, in the red fire's cheerful glow,
I think of deep glens, blocked with snow;
I dream of moor, and misty hill,
Where evening closes dark and chill;
For, lone, among the mountains cold,
Lie those that I have loved of old.
And my heart aches, in hopeless pain,
Exhausted with repinings vain,
That I shall greet them ne'er again!"
