The Smiths/Morrissey

Post by smige2 » Sat Nov 03, 2012 9:26 am

I've always meant to ask you this but never got round to it. I know Million Dead covered 'Girlfriend in a Coma' and there are a couple of references to The Smiths and Morrissey in your lyrics. Are you personally a fan of The Smiths and/or Morrissey's solo work, and if so, do you consider them to be an influence on your music (particularly lyrically)? Have you any favourite songs or albums? Thanks :)

I like (rather than love) the Smiths. Morrissey has an amazing turn of phrase. He is also a giant twat these days, which is annoying.
Shows? All of em.

his spot on the Colbert Report was hilarious. Colbert ran him into the ground, Morrissey looked like he'd chewed a wasp.

I reckon it's a defense mechanism... The intelligence in his lyrics doesn't always come across in his actions, which is a shame.

Oh god, I just about died laughing when I watched that! He looked like he was being tortured. I wonder why he'd even agree to the spot knowing it's Colbert's gig to wind people up...
Making someone feel that it is okay for them to be exactly who they are is the greatest kindness one human being can do for another.

Always make 'em laugh, try to make 'em cry-- always take the stage like it's the last night of your life.

The Smiths were an amazing band, and Morrissey was a phenomenal lyricist, an inspiration to most songwriters who came after The Smiths.
But, as good as his music is, he's still a massive t*at of a person, I really dislike him, which is a shame as I love The Smiths.
