Morrissey management - response to NME article

The N.M.E. used to represent the underground.

Now they are becoming known as The Guardian of rock music.

They had to stop printing copies.

Not because no one buys magazines.

Print publications like Q Magazine and Kerrang! still exist, because they remember who they are.

But not N.M.E.

They forgot who they were.

And because they just aren’t cool anymore.

N.M.E. are also just full of shit.

And can’t even afford good writers to work for them.

They like to remind readers of all the past allegations of the year, despite their lack of any basis in fact, despite that they are just re-hashing stories over and over, old news, fake news, etc.

But they leave out their own old issues, of lawsuits lost, and legal battles that forced them to apologize to M in the past.

And they lie more than Donald Trump.

-N.M.E. asked no one from M’s camp for comment to their recent story.

-Haslam was never a Moz fan. He was a publicity hound who had a new book coming that no one cared about.

-We didn’t cancel our summer shows because of Haslam’s weak event, the protest that drew no people.

-Moz in not a racist.

None of M’s latino fans care about UK politics, but hell…..why not call them up and try and find a story where one doesn’t exist?

Not like they have anything real to write about……like music.

Because they don’t even know what music is anymore.

Basically all this points to the fact that writer(?) Bob Chiarito and his editors at N.M.E. have been relegated to meaninglessness.

Not really even worth writing about for this Facebook post.

We stand up for ourselves here, not because we give a shit anymore what these folks say…..

…..but to point out to the fans and music industry of the UK that they’ve changed their title.

Now N.M.E. stands for …….Now Mostly Excrement.

No longer of any value to the music community…. they have decided to be the TMZ of music news.

Good riddance. - PK

*******

I'm guessing it is in response to this latest article in the NME... and that PK is P. Katsis from a previous statement posted on FB.

New Balls Please
The Case of the Missing Balls

- By P. Katsis

Ho Hum……..another boring day, another boring story in The Guardian about Morrissey.

How long ago was that comment about Mr Robinson? More than a month ago?

And The Guardian are still writing about it?

Must be sad for the editors to know they need to write about Morrissey in order to have anyone buy or read their shit paper.

Must be even more disappointing for them that the event they helped back in Manchester on Sunday night was a complete failure.

No one attended.

Bottom line is Morrissey doesn’t need Mr Lee, or The Guardian, for anything.

He is still doing quite fine, even in the UK.

At this point The Guardian could not be more predictable. More insignificant to the music audience. I did not think that possible to be honest.

Most folks know The Guardian has had it out for M for years now.

And most folks realize that when the Guardian prints a headline saying Former Morrissey fans plan an anti-racist rally, …..
that nobody involved with planning the rally was an ex-Morrissey fan.

The Guardian is but one thing.

Where are the music writers who actually have balls? Are there any contrarians left out there?

Anyone that appreciates that an artist actually has any opinions at all?

Or still writes socially conscious lyrics in his music?

We all hate Trump over here, but I’d like to think we are not all mindless idiots with the same cookie-cutter opinions on every subject.

Since when do the N.M.E. and Noisey agree with The Guardian about anything?

Where has the “Underground" gone?

Plus let’s face it…...

Despite what you think of his political opinions, has anyone known Morrissey to have actually committed a crime?

Or even been accused of committing any crimes?

Do you really think he backs everything that Tommy Robinson believes? Or just his thoughts on Immigration?

When he talks about The Chinese being a sub-species, is he really talking about the Chinese people??

Or is he more than likely making reference to the Chinese government and their unforgivable treatment of animals?

When he starts a comment off by declaring that he hates rape, and hates to hear that anyone has to deal with abuse…..

is he really backing up Kevin Spacey like every headline posted???

Or was he saying it was unlikely that particular 14 year old didn’t suspect what he was getting into by going to that room?

By making any commentary, does Morrissey deserve the same treatment by the press as Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, R Kelly, or Brand New?

People that have actually been accused rape and abuse?

So why does he get included with all of them? Because his opinions deserve that inclusion? Give me a break.

How come there is never a voice raised to point out the obvious?

Because the bottom line is it’s always a better headline when an editor hand picks the parts of the comment that implies the worst.

Certainly controversy has always been king, but never so much as it is now in this “click bait” world that we live in.

Controversy pays off big. So who are we kidding? It’s clear these editors have their agenda set. Pure capitalism.

And if you are a “Has-Been Haslam” type, and you have a book coming out, then….. why not take a shot?

The press will cover it and you’ll get some attention you can’t get any other way.

Smarter people are hopefully not fooled by that kind of crap, but…..some people only read the headlines, and…...

...what’s sad is if folks read enough of those headlines they almost become fact in the ether of today’s version of “the truth”.

Of course I have to admit I’m just a Yank so I can’t even pretend to be an expert on the UK press or British politics.

Although it certainly appeared to be a very interesting day in politics in London yesterday.

The world is a mess right now. Plenty of liberals have mixed opinions for the first time.

And certainly in this age of political correctness and #metoo it would be best to say nothing.

But from this outsiders view, and what no one seems willing to say, is that the UK press seems to have lost their balls somewhere.

Has anyone seen them? - PK

The Guardian Gets It Wrong Again!

Let’s get real. “ Former Morrissey fans” have not organized anything. That “Has-Been Haslam” character was never a Morrissey fan. And his agenda, stated as using music to spread peace, could not be any further from the truth. He is simply using the situation to gain some much needed attention to himself. Apparently his golden years have not been kind. If he really wanted to make a political statement he would make one about the Politicians. But no, that is not what he wants here. He is using this platform for his own agenda. At the end of the day, bullshit is still bullshit.

We are in the business of creating music and performing music. We are actually not in the business of politics, or bullshit. We’ll leave that to Wannabees like Mr Haslam and the Editors of The Guardian.

The Morrissey Song Game

Posted by DAVIE (Members) at Sun 24 Jun 2018, 22:27:42. 17 comments

Okay. Here it goes.

The game is completely interpretational and can include both Smiths and Morrissey songs. I shall start by naming two songs. Another person answers which song he or she likes the most and then puts up two other songs for someone to answer. Think of it as a Morrissey songs Top Trumps.

Here's an example:

Hand in Glove vs Billy Budd

Hand in Glove

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


And here's my next one for you

Bengali in Platforms vs Spent The Day In Bed

Dave Haslam, hero or zero?

Posted by Reggie Peppery (Members) at Sat 23 Jun 2018, 22:25:03. 7 comments

Dave Haslam is a self promoting chancer, this nobody’s nothing is riding Morrisseys coat tails to promote his diabolical new book, he has chosen to host an “anti racism” night which he believes will “counter” Morrisseys upcoming concert in Manchester! I won’t link as that would be playing into his hands! This guy is beneath and below contempt and his plan is doomed to failure, Morrissey himself will draw his usual mixed and highly intelligent anti-racist crowd as usual, leaving only society’s dross free to attend the free concert!

Well, mark this day down as a low point in Manchester’s illustrious history, and rejoice when Morrissey has a well attended sell out concert! And Manchester attendees remember that this dross May try and spoil your night, you won’t let them will you?



This Is Morrissey: An Interview

This is Morrissey: An Interview

EVERYBODY TODAY HAS AN OPINION ON MORRISSEY. How much of our views of him are shaped by a selective media (as opposed to the man himself) is something to consider. Is it ever possible to separate the man from the myth? The truth from current popular opinion? Throughout the duration of his life in the public eye, Morrissey has never shied away from being true to himself, of being honest and frank, even when the price to be paid is high (the media, as we have seen, do not take kindly to those who dare to tread a different path from the one they approve of and are paid to promote).

There have been many headline grabbing pieces using his name and face to push their agenda: at times he has been charged with harsh accusations, and yet he does not stand back. In true Morrissey style, he stands boldly forward. He is an articulate artist of confidence, unafraid to say his piece.

Never one to stand still on past achievements or to stagnate in still waters, Morrissey has released eleven solo albums since his days with The Smiths, including You Are The Quarry , Ringleaders of the Tormentors , World Peace is None of Your Business , and his latest, Low in High School . His work remains beautiful yet provoking.

Next month will see the legendary icon perform several dates across the UK. In a live setting Morrissey treats his latest offerings with the same reverence as his impeccable back catalogue – honouring his older material but sharing his passion for the new as he evolves. Morrissey is unusual in this regard; there aren't many artists who have survived this long in the cut-throat music industry and yet managed to remain at the top of their creative field.

When I penned my recent piece, 'Morrissey: The Great Unfiltered Artist' it was my aim to shine a light on somebody who I felt was at times misunderstood, and to attempt to question what we were 'sold to believe' (as I feel we always must when faced with a heavily biased media). Morrissey very kindly agreed to an interview with me. I came away from his responses having a greater sense of the man himself, and of where he was coming from - his words often insightful, at times humorous but always honest. For that, I thank him.

Here is the interview in full.

Hi, Morrissey. Thank you for agreeing to take part in this interview.

Low In High School is now out, you're back on the road with a lengthy world tour and your upcoming album This Is Morrissey will be released soon. It's been a busy, creative time. Would you say you are happy with how things are in your music career right now?

Is it a career? My position doesn't ever change very much, and hasn't since 1984. I am very proud of the music, the live concerts are magnificent, the bad reviews are relentless. It rolls along, the audiences increase around the world, but it's still easier to get hit by lightning than be played on radio. I think I've earned the right to be here by now ... surely?

Low In High School has quickly become one of my personal favourites. There is a distinct sound to the album and the themes within are, as always, thought provoking. Can you tell us a little about the creative process you go through when writing songs with your band?

There isn't a process. No one hears the vocal melody until we are recording the song in the studio. We don't ever rehearse, or jam, or even discuss song directions. A studio is booked and we turn up. No one knows anything until the producer presses Record. It's an edginess that usually works. I haven't ever sat together with the band, just strumming through ideas. Even the actual key is unknown until the day of recording. Quite inventive, wouldn't you say?

Absolutely. It seems like such a unique approach but it obviously serves you well.

Several tracks in the new album could easily be considered up there amongst your best work (for instance, Israel, I Bury the Living, Home is a Question Mark). It seems the media at times ignore the quality of your work and instead concentrate on analysing you. Do you ever feel frustrated when they overlook your work in favour of scrutinising you as a figure?

I don't think the quality of the work is ever considered. I think the approach to each review is " well, how do we feel about Morrissey this month? ", and the answer ... whatever it may be ... provides a full assessment of the songs. I don't think I sound like anyone else, and this is often a traumatic problem ... because modern music and modern radio must have a common seagull sound ... a bit like a golf-themed restaurant.

It seems important in 2018 that you don't know who you're listening to and you don't much care! We are now trained to expect absolutely nothing from modern music, therefore, if a new band comes along who are passably OK, the press go overboard with five star praise - disbelief that someone new is really not atrocious. But ... are they good or is there simply no one else?


I see it a lot, too. More often than not it seems like there is an immense sense of relief when someone comes along who doesn't sound like everyone else - that in itself is a rare thing.

One thing that struck me when listening to the album was how politically charged it was. Do you feel that the lack of industry support for the record was a concerted attempt to not give attention to some of the issues you tried to shine a light on?

The world is now politically charged. I am simply a part of it. Everything is politicized now. My previous album World Peace Is None of Your Business was dropped after ten days of release because it was thought too political. In other words, it was too true.

Going back to the This Is Morrissey compilation (to be released July 6th). With so many fantastic tracks to chose from your back-catalogue, was it hard to select which ones would appear on the collection?

It's difficult to choose because so many of the songs are fantastic. The album is so full of life, and worthy questions, and great choruses, and quite playful. It's a very underrated catalogue, but perhaps everyone feels this way about their own songs.

Being in the media and experiencing scrutiny from the press, you are probably used to reading (unfair) judgements and a biased summary of your personality. What, do you think, is the biggest misconception people have of you?

I often have no idea what people are writing about. I don't recognize myself in their criticisms. They live in a world of their own, and they won't break away from what each other says on any subject. You long for a reviewer who steps away from the pack. I don't think I've done an interview with the UK music press since 2007, which isn't snobbery, but I simply became tired of the ridiculous BIGMOUTH STRIKES AGAIN headlines ... my voice is very soft and quiet, in fact, and it doesn't strike again, or even strike at all.

The past 10-15 years has seen a massive increase in long defunct/retired bands reforming. It strikes me more often than not that this is about cashing in on fan nostalgia as opposed to the art or creative process. What is your opinion on this trend?

I think a lot of the bands are honest enough not to pretend that art or creativity are factors in reformations, and it's enough just to play the old songs in the same way because ... why else would anyone want to see them? It's such a big business now because the world is very short on bands that have any meaning. Yes, you can be enormous, but your music might not develop any passion in its listeners. The Ramones exploded worldwide at the point when the group members died.

We often underestimate the affect that songs have on our lives, and how frequently we re-buy those songs, and suddenly we're 74 and we still love whatever we loved at 14. Pop music is treated as transitory fodder - but it isn't. Those lyrics become gravestone markings.


I often feel that many of our greatest artists, such as yourself, get taken for granted, especially if they have had a significantly long career behind them. Have you ever felt that people don't always give your newer work the same chance as you were afforded earlier in your career and do you think this is possibly because you have not pandered to trends like some others have?

It's the human condition, isn't it, to take others for granted ... from your grandparents to your Jack Russell. Death is always such a shock because it's not supposed to happen, even though death is the most obvious part of life. With my solo albums, I have enough gratification from the people who appreciate it, and I know that very many do. Historically, it is disregarded because the Smiths were so good, but are not here, so that absence is lamentable. But I initially loved music because I found it, and it's important that you go to music without it coming to you.

Now of course, we are all hit over the head by pre-determined number 1's, and nothing connects because the process of heavy marketing is neither exciting nor art. We are faced every single day with multi-platinum singers about whom nothing can be said other than that they are multi-platinum. It's like mouthing the high notes without actually hitting them. Do you see that yourself?


I do. It strikes me that the music industry today has become very bland. This is exactly why I think your work remains outstanding.

There are a lot of singers who just want to get on the TV and be looked at. I know I do. Sorry, that was a joke.

To what extent, if any, do you think your fame has changed you as a person?

None. I am exactly as I always was ... and I say this with great bitterness!

You haven't released many live concert DVDs throughout your solo years. Do you have any plans for a future release and are any of the upcoming dates going to be recorded or live-streamed?

There was one, Who Put The M In Manchester? which did very well, and another at Hollywood High School. Every concert that I do is recorded, so I have at least two thousand under the bed.

Social media seems to have become an elevated platform for people to express how offended they are. Do you think there is a group-think mentality at play and if so, who is controlling the narrative?

People have an urgent need to express their ... well, it isn't disapproval, it's hatred... like drivers giving you the middle-finger as they speed off at 100mph. If they didn't have such a quick getaway they wouldn't do it. It seems to be the number one human emotion now ... social media shaming. Do you agree?

I do, truthfully. I think the sly anonymity of the internet gives people an opportunity to express an uncountable amount of hatred, and so much bullying, too. Things are said with a confidence that would never be uttered face to face. There may be good aspects to social media but it's counter-balanced by a lot of negativity.

Morrissey, you are known for your passion for animal rights and have said you are a vegan in previous interviews. Did you - or do you - find any aspect of following the vegan diet difficult? Are there things that you miss?

I don't eat animals, birds or fish. I don't consider myself to be vegan, vegetarian or carnivorous. I'm just me. I refuse to eat anything that had a mother, that's obvious. I've always found food to be very difficult because I only eat bread, potatoes, pasta and nuts... all stodge. I can't eat anything that has any flavour. I've never had a curry, or coffee, or garlic.

I'm absolutely hopeless when I'm handed a menu in a restaurant. I go directly to the Kiddie's Meals. If I find baked beans then the night is a huge success. If you ever bring me out to dinner it's important that you also bring a toaster.


As a life-long vegetarian myself who has also explored the vegan diet, I often find that meat eaters are keen to challenge me or argue against my principles, often when I haven't even raised the subject with them. Have you ever experienced this and why do you think it occurs?

I've experienced it all my life and it's because they assume you've adopted the moral high ground by refusing to eat a dead animal. And they're right! But you only take the stand on behalf of the butchered animal - you don't make money from your point of view. You become the voice of the animal .... who kicked and struggled to hang on to life, but who was chopped up because some fat oaf in Woking fancied some commercial-break nibbles.

The truth is, vegans are actually superior beings. A television documentary recently covered a duck farm somewhere in England, and as all the chicks emerged from their incubator chirping away, the TV presenter said "Ooh they're so cute, they so beautiful, oh look, look at their little faces," and then she turned to the camera with a straight face and said matter-of-factly " the chicks will be allowed to live for 8 weeks and will then be slaughtered," and I thought, wow, people really ARE utterly stupid, aren't they? This is what you're up against - recognition that the chicks were beautiful, yet not ALLOWED to live longer than 8 weeks because someone wants to suck on their innards. It's barbaric. Do people realize how deadly they sound?


You have shared criticisms of the political system and expressed that you do not vote. Do you believe that the political arena could ever be shaped into something that helps people in the future, or do you think that human beings in positions of power are inherently corrupt?

I have been following a new party called For Britain which is led by Anne Marie Waters. It is the first time in my life that I will vote for a political party. Finally I have hope. I find the Tory-Labour-Tory-Labour constant switching to be pointless. For Britain has received no media support and have even been dismissed with the usual childish 'racist' accusation. I don't think the word 'racist' has any meaning anymore, other than to say "you don't agree with me, so you're a racist. " People can be utterly, utterly stupid.

Anne Marie Waters seeks open discussion about all aspects of modern Britain, whereas other parties will not allow diverse opinion. She is like a humane version of Thatcher ... if such a concept could be. She is absolute leadership, she doesn't read from a script, she believes in British heritage, freedom of speech, and she wants everyone in the UK to live under the same law. I find this compelling, now, because it's very obvious that Labour or the Tories do not believe in free speech... I mean, look at the shocking treatment of Tommy Robinson...

I know the media don't want Anne Marie Waters and they try to smear her, but they are wrong and they should give her a chance, and they should stop accusing people who want open debate as being 'racist'. As I said previously, the left has become right-wing and the right-wing has become left - a complete switch, and this is a very unhappy modern Britain.


Do you have any spiritual or religious convictions? Have you ever believed there is more to life than just this physical plane, or is this “it” for us?

I don't understand why God doesn't look down on this mess and intervene. He can't be THAT busy?

As someone has really been through so much in the industry, have you ever considered walking away from it all?

Am I even in it? I don't think so. I get a chance to record every few years and I grab it, otherwise I'm not involved.

Many music fans have become wary of the charts today and feel that streaming sites such as Spotify are actually creating a false picture of what people are really listening to. Do you feel in this current musical climate that chart positions even hold much relevance any more?

It no longer rings true. With vinyl, the consumer makes an effort to get the disc - which can take weeks. With streaming, 6-year olds watching X-factory will download anything that they see just because their friends do, yet it means nothing to them, but it charts.

Vinyl customers are considered to be serious music lovers because there is a testing period between wanting and getting - when you eventually find it and pay for it. If everyone still had to leave their homes and walk to a record shop the chart would be an entirely different place because effort and serious consideration are usually required. As things stand, the audience for Britain's Got Talent has full monopoly of the UK music charts. Hence ... laptop laziness.


List of the Lost, your first fictional novel, was a fantastic read. It was, for me, one of those stories that haunted me after I finished it. I believe fans would love to read more fiction from you. Is another book release a possibility for the future?

The book was meant to be a modern Brighton Rock, and, yes, certainly horrific. It was heavily criticized for being what it fully intended to be. But, having said that, I don't know anyone who actually liked the book!

I've read it three times!

Whenever it was mentioned people looked down. That's quite OK! I am of stern stuff.

There has been strong world music influence in your recent albums. Songs such as Istanbul, The Girl from Tel-Aviv Who Wouldn't Kneel, I Will See You in Far Off Places, Staircase at the University, The Bullfighter Dies etc. They have all got a flavour of other cultures. Do you feel like escaping the humdrum of Dear Old Blighty has inspired you and your band in your musical direction?

Yes! I love to travel now, and I feel very excited to be in Turkey, Poland, Finland, Israel, and so on. Whether they actually want me there is entirely another matter. But, of course, it's always great to get away from Channel 4 News. In fact, that really is the main reason to travel …

Thank you, Morrissey, for taking the time out to answer these questions.

Statement from Morrissey: For Britain

Posted by Reggie Peppery (Members) at Fri 20 Apr 2018, 08:21:44. 42 comments

I despise racism.

I despise fascism.

I would do anything for my Muslim friends, and I know they would do anything for me.

In view of this, there is only one British political party that can safeguard our security.

That party is For Britain.

Please give them a chance. Listen to them. Do not be influenced by the tyrannies of the MSM who will tell you that For Britain are racist or fascist - please believe me, they are the very opposite!!! Please do not close your mind.

Labour is hopelessly naive.

Theresa May’s policies have turned Britain into a international target.

The BBC has closed down.

The Loony Left is concerned only with victim culture.

For Britain will keep British society together. Violence is not the way forward.
There are many problems in modern Britain that have become too large for Theresa May to deal with - mostly because she created them in the first place. The press appear to deal only in fashionable outrage; inflammatory and unjust comments against any new party that threatens the same old bloody pointless two-party system.

Please give For Britain a chance. They will bring an end to the modern Westminster mania for self-destruction. For Britain is the bulldog breed that will never surrender. Both Labour and Conservatives have already sold you down the river into righteous oblivion.

This is my last political strike. No wish to upset anyone! But the time has come to fight, and Labour and the Conservatives have their backs to the sea.

Are you capable of change?

Thank you, and peace for all of us

Massive new article at Morrissey Central, we are asked not to share/repost without permission, so I won’t! The interview is big and in it Morrissey asks a great many questions about the state of Britain, and the world today! He also suggested he may be suing Spin! (I hope he does! Morrissey should confront these people who shout racist or facist wherever they lurk!)

Why The Independent hates independence
March 28, 2018
The importance of an artist (or political figure) is sometimes evident in the efforts taken to silence them. Two weeks ago, with stiff-backed priggishness, The Independent printed an extreme Hate Piece so loaded with vile bile that it almost choked on its own endless capacity to be appalled. As its target, it seemed evident that The Independent found me so morally shredded and physically repulsive that I appeared to fascinate them, whilst it also seemed obvious that any announcement of my painful death would make them laugh loudly. Yes, this is what we’re dealing with. Their moral outrage is certain that it has hit upon something as they take a stab at just about everything whilst hitting nothing.
Telford grooming gangs? Hardly worth a whisper in The Independent. Instead let’s demonize Morrissey - who deserves our indefatigable abuse since he appears to be saying some things that many people are actually thinking. To truthophobics, I am apparently worse than useless.

You see, The Independent ‘newspaper’ isn’t actually a paper with news, and it will express only the views of their editor/dictator, whose name is Christian Broughton. What he will tell us is happening and what we see is happening are two entirely different things. In order to find out the truth of anything, you must take note of what Christian Broughton does not allow into print.
My manager (Peter Katsis) spoke to Christian Broughton after the Hate Piece had appeared, and he asked why Broughton had sanctioned such a diabolically contrived and bitterly inaccurate mess. Broughton pointed out that “it would be difficult to find anyone at The Independent
who agreed with Morrissey’s views.” This almost- illiterate reply fully reveals The Independent’s dog-yapping will to destroy anyone with a view that doesn’t match their own. The Independent, you see, must supervise and censor art - that is their function.
But what are my views? And why do they ‘get at’ the stiff boundaries of The Independent? And what is The Independent independent of? Truth? Shame? They state confidently that, when I recently asked a packed audience at Glasgow Arena if they actually liked Nicola Sturgeon, that half the audience walked out in disgust towards me. As you can guess, without any principals of justice. The Glasgow audience, in fact, roared a deafening “NOOOOO!” in reply to the question, and not one person was known to have left the venue in protest. The Independent is willing to lie to its readers in order to create a skewed truth, and to hell with any principals of justice. If the newspaper is willing to take such silly risks with very basic facts then what on earth could they report that you would actually believe? They tell their readers that I “loathe Nicola Sturgeon” (which is untrue), and they explain by way of sneering slur how I am “loving Brexit”.

I believe I have mentioned Brexit twice in my entire life, and neither comment expressed love. I had explained how Brexit had been a strike for democracy because of the disgust that the political elite had shown towards the people who did not vote the way that they were warned to by media bullies. But why attack anyone who loves Brexit? Almost two years on from the result, the EU still has not allowed the UK to leave its clutches - which simply explains exactly why the Leave campaigners voted as they did in the first place. Doesn’t it twig?
However, any Brexit loathing by The Independent does not reflect majority opinion, and this lends them no independent thought whatsoever, but blind bureaucratic arrogance instead. This is symptomatic of a modern, shredded British society, where free speech no longer exists. When the print media are lost for a reply, they simply change the subject by naming their
opponent as ‘racist’, which is the perfect ploy because most people are naturally appalled to be called racist, and they step back in silence, and the debate collapses unresolved. Use of the word often only ever comes from people who themselves are intolerant. It works. Even though England introduced the world to democracy, great art and great literature, it is now leading the way with a dark and largely hidden agenda where no one is entitled to disagree; only one interest and opinion must prevail within the print media. Art is now fully outside tabloid journalism, and the gaping hole shrieks at us via the commercial arena with its automatic laughter and the impotent emotion of reality TV. The American genius William Burroughs was once interviewed on Radio 1 in the 1970s. Today’s Radio 1 is such an intellectually paralyzed blast of surface that it would not remotely consider interviewing anyone of the nature or intellect of Burroughs. Is civilization over? The cannibalistic mobile grave known as The Guardian suggests so. Thrilled at the knowledge of their own power, both The Guardian and The Independent daily confirm the views of everyone who morally objects to them (and The News of The World turns in its urn.) Their intolerant and totalitarian criticism of others reveals so much about themselves. Perhaps newspapers just cannot keep up with the open-ness and tolerance of internet news sites? The future of The Independent seems only a question of your commitment to it. It claims that I support Harvey Weinstein - someone about whom I know almost nothing. I do not believe I could recognize him in photographs. The Independent also claims that my audience have deserted me - yet this month I have completed my most successful UK tour, selling 22,000 tickets in London alone, selling out concerts at Alexandra Palace, The London Palladium, Brixton Academy and The Royal Albert Hall, all played within the space of 8 days. The Independent has an almost breathless capacity for misinformation and deception. Its uncontested rules of hate are like a fully drawn bow aiming its arrow at 42 targets, yet hitting none; bitter at the core, yet taking a stab, as its writer moves with one-way-or-another-you-will-remember-my-name outrage.

I am neither Loony Left nor Far Right. I am a humanitarian. I have not ever once voted in a British election because I have not ever discovered a party that represents my views. My main social concern is the abolition of the abattoir, the continued existence of which in modern times is beyond sane belief.
I confess that my life in music has been stunted by shyness, and this remains. I am too interior, and this can often seem like bone splitting arrogance. But it is not. I do not want to be like anyone else in music because there is no point. I want to bring something different into view. When I attempt to clarify, I will admit that it often sounds like an attack. I believe England can look after itself. It does not need the EU to police its laws, its thought, its borders or its liberty. It does not take a genius to arrive at this viewpoint.

Because The Independent cannot keep their own views under control, it seems obvious to me that we must source our information from alternative news outlets - they, at any rate, are telling us that we should. British mainstream media is now so politically correct that basic truth is actually impossible, and although it is obsessed with promoting social diversity they will not accept diverse opinion. Most British newspapers can only offer secrecy. When news is offered as opinion, it can only therefore be biased. Last year I completed a questionnaire for The Daily Mail in which one of their questions was ‘Whom do you most dislike?’. I replied ‘Theresa May, because of her support for killing foxes and badgers.’ The questionnaire appeared in print, but the Theresa May reply was missing because it obviously didn’t fit with the Mail’s political position as Theresa May’s personal notice-board. Journalists only ever talk to other journalists, it seems.

‘The London intellect, so pert and shallow,
like a stream that never reaches the ocean.’
E. M. Forster.



I have been criticized in the UK for so long (nowhere else!) that anything said about me no longer strikes me as a threat because I am still, after all, here. We should, I think, be striving for something more morally useful than whatever The Independent vomits out by way of spite.

Katie Boyle, who very sadly died this week, said “you have to accept [the press] telling complete lies about you. You can’t take legal action because that fans the flame.” I see what she means!



In 1887 the masthead of The New York Times began its famous slogan: All The News That’s Fit To Print.
In 2018, The masthead of The Independent should read All The Shit That’s Fit To Print. The Independent has tried to put me out of circulation: and viva hate, to that!

VEVO have only gone and done it again!

Home is a question mark, arguably the most “Morrissey” song Morrissey has ever written! An instant classic, sure to be in the top 5 of every fans all time list of great songs!
This song begs to be released as a double A sided single, with “I beg your pardon” (I never promised you a Rose Garden).
