Made me think of:-
Quote:
Look man, you can listen to Jimi but you can't hear him. There's a difference man. Just because you're listening to him doesn't mean you're hearing him.


There's some humour to be had about it, though - one pretentious blowhard irked by another pretentious blowhard "another first world problem" eh. Brought a wry smile to my face. Irony, it's so ironic.

I'm 'straight edge' but the day the old witch snuffs it, I'm gonna have a large whiskey and an even larger grin.

Hey people slagging the Smiths off....only about 30 years too late.

Mr Cameron is a dirty Tory scumbag, fact.

Mr Marr isn't, fact.


Where's the news story?

The Smiths are the best Manchester band followed by... Joy Division, Stone Roses and the Chameleons.


al. :D


You forgo The Buzzcocks and Slaughter and the Dogs!

If anyone on here has Morrisseys contact details, can they ask him if the "punctured bicycle, on a hillside - desolate" he sang about was an 80s Steve Potts or Ritchey by any chance? And which hillside it was left lying on? It's a long shot, but if Morrissey can settle in sun-drenched LA and still bang on about the English working classes, I reckon anything is possible...

Given that The Smiths were a Manchester band, surely it would have been a Harry Hall? ;)

Indeed.
Although I went to see The Buzzcocks last year and they played a short set with the original line up and Howard Devoto forgot his lines twice!
