MORRISSEY - STILL A TWAT



Written by Jack Blocker

Once again, big thanks to Viz for the above article clipping I use in any story about Morrissey being a twat.

I'm not the sort of person who thinks popstars owe me one because I bought their album. You won't find me smearing dogshit on Luke Pritchard's car because I foolishily purchased Inside In/Inside Out when I was a teen. I feel the music is reward enough.

Even so, I think all musicians should still have the courtesy to show up to gigs regardless of their personal feelings towards the fans or venue. Granted, if your manager pencilled you in to open for Skrewdriver, then feel free to back out if you don't want to be associated with Blood & Honour. But if you refuse to play a show because the venue happens to serve meat, then you are a colossal twat. No prizes for guessing who I'm talking about:

"I love Iceland and I have waited a long time to return, but I shall leave the Harpa Concert Hall to their cannibalistic flesh-eating bloodlust."

Morrissey recently cancelled a gig at the Harpa Concert Hall in Iceland due to the venue's rapacious lust for flesh, or what you and I would call a menu of varied choice. Now I'm not saying Morrissey owes the people of Iceland a show, but he could at least acknowledge the fact they've embraced his miserable music by not treating them like savages.

If they were willing to suffer through Maladjusted, I'm sure they'd be willing to boycott the venue's meat dishes on the condition he actually turn up.

That bio has given him ideas well beyond his station.
