They're not serving meat just to kowtow to some lame 80s act fronted by a total douche? No way I'd go to Coachella next year if they do that.

Henry Holland: radiovox: Oh fark The Smiths. They lasted all of about 30 seconds in the 80's and the only ones who listened to them back then were the kids in high school who were just trying to be cooler than thou...sorta like today's hipsters.

Ding! Wrong answer! Speaking for myself and my friends that were Smiths fans, we listened to them because they had Marr writing excellent jangly 60's-tinged music, a kick-ass rhythm section and Morrissey's lyrics, which spoke to us shy, lonely bookworms. Plus, in 1984, they were an oasis, a guitar band in a sea of Boy George, Wham!, Madonna and False Metal.

So what if Moz has become a bit like a deranged uncle who nobody wants to confront at family picnics, because what do you say to a grown man with a cat on his head?

Eh? They were more bland, popish-sounding stuff in a mass of it. It doesn't sound anything like the Byrds or something like that. There was a guy playing guitar in Culture Club, too. At least their front-man wasn't closeted, nor quite so aggressively self-righteous. If the punk rock of the period was too macho and stupid for you, and the product of a dying scene, all of which might be valid criticisms, there was Oingo Boingo, PIL, Big Black, the Replacements, Violent Femmes, Laurie Anderson, R.E.M., N.R.B.Q., all sorts of stuff that struck me as either more interesting or at least less horrible to listen to.

I would seriously consider paying for someone's ticket and travel just so they could lob chunks of flesh at the twat during the first song, causing him to storm off in a huff and cancel the gig.
The only downside is that I would be indirectly giving him my money to continue promoting his message of hate and intolerance.

Saw the Smiths back when they were touring to support The Queen is Dead. In those care free pre-internet days I had limited exposure to them outside of their actual albums, so I was blissfully unaware of what a farking twat moz was. It was a good show but that had more to do with Johnny Marr than morrissey.

Would love to see the Smiths with another vocalist, or some of Marr's other projects / collaborations, but I've got no interest in anything morrissey and his whiny, overly dramatic delivery are part of.

/In honor of this thread i'm going to eat some veal tomorrow.
//And every May I donate money to Ducks Unlimited (an organization that preserves wetlands for the purpose of hunting) in morrissey's name.
///Finally, if he pulls stunt like Coachella ("I can smell burning flesh and I hope to God it's human") I'm going to sponsor someone in the Newfoundland seal hunt in his name.

Maynotlast: There's still a "Coachella?"

It's a shallow, hollow, pathetic shell of it's former existence, serving only as a vehicle for hipsters and fashion-whores...kind of like Morrissey.

As far as Morrissey is concerned, nobody gives a flying fark. Has he found anyone willing to record his next CD yet? Yeah, I didn't think so.

I hate to break the news to you, but it isn't Coachella that is desperate. It is Morrissey. And unless he starts doing commercial promos as the new spokesman for Massengill, he can go to hell.
