Day 2140 - New & Exclusive Morrissey Interview

At 2.09pm this afternoon, an email arrived from Morrissey's 'admin guy', with the answers to the questions that I sent to him on Wednesday. Here is the interview in full:


According to reports, you apparently turned down ("after an entertaining month-long email exchange") Damon Albarn's request to record on his latest Gorillaz album. Was this because you have never forgiven him for beating you to a duet with Françoise Hardy, or was it just not you?

Entertaining for whom? I certainly was not entertained by Albarn's limited vocabulary and laddish behaviour. I also would not call 100 emails received and two sent as an exchange. If I could work out how to filter emails to the deleted folder automatically I would. However Boz dripped sauce onto the instructions and I cannot bear to touch them again. If Albarn is reading this I do not care if you can drink seven Corona's in 30 seconds. I am not Gary Day. Albarn's only notable contribution to the musical landscape is to be noted in the Guinness World Records as Most Successful Virtual Band. Well I've been virtually successful for years with no hint of recognition. Albarn also has an OBE which in his case I can only assume stands for overbearing eejit. Damon is a ridiculous name for a pop star, a personal assistant yes, but a popstar, no.

Are there any artists that you dearly would like to collaborate with?

No current artists are capable of lacing my vegan shoes. I would dearly wish to duet with Shirley Bassey on Let Me Sing and I'm Happy. I find her infinitely fascinating. I always have and unless she is pictured with Joyce I always will.

The only possible way to make it into the Singles Chart these days is if you are one of the 'Stream-age' generation i.e. Sheeran, Clean Bandit, Drake, Rihanna, Bieber etc. Would you collaborate with any of the 'streamers'?

Streaming is the tomb into which artistic integrity will soon lower itself into. One has no emotional attachment to something that can be played at the click of a button and re-played, and re-played and re-played. It is unlikely that Sheeran or any of the other parade of PR popstars you have listed have ever spent their own money on music and therefore they devalue it completely. Rihanna would not pay $10 for her own album but she can sit at home, with the sound down on her electronic device, and listen to her own songs for as long as she wants. One wonders if streaming is a record company ploy which would explain why I am never streamed. Streaming is an easy victory. Have any of these people muttered or stuttered a single word of importance? Perhaps I should have kept my mouth shut all those years ago and today I would be considered of greater importance than David Bowie or at least Limahl.

April 22nd is Record Store Day, and the Smiths are releasing The Boy With The Thorn in His Side. Was this your idea, and why was TBWTTIHS chosen?

People seem love-sick and home-sick for The Smiths. As you are aware from my concerts I am a firm believer in giving people what they want. The Boy With The Thorn in His Side was chosen for reasons of which I'm sure you're aware. It seems to me in 2017 we are forced to tolerate and endure the same faces saying the same thing and singing the same songs to the point of nausea. I still find The Smiths to be a revolutionary force.
Please no more questions regarding The Smiths.

Would it mean anything at all to you if the 7 inch of The Boy With The Thorn were to reach Number 1 in the UK Vinyl Chart?

What did I just say? Very well, it would mean my entire solo career has been a waste and I could have released one Smiths song a year and been happy. Happy, fat, and decaying. Stop laughing.

When David Bowie died, did you feel saddened by the fact that you never got to 'put things right' with him?

Bowie ceased to be a creative influence well before his staged death. A publicity masterstroke. Blackstar will now be regarded as a masterpiece whereas if he remained alive it would be seen as a record with no melody and lyrics that are at best banal and at worst Simon Le Bon. I would have been saddened if Bowie had died in 1977 however the façade had faded by then and the most controversial of popstars became an establishment hero.

However much you play it down, you must be intrigued at least, to see how the upcoming film England Is Mine portrays you?

I already know how the narrative arch of this film and the various clichés and tropes it will delve into. The Morrissey character will be portrayed as a loner, dressed in a brown cardigan, drowning under copious amounts of literature who was destined to live with his mother until he died of old age at 47. The Morrissey character will be depicted as hopeless and loveless and ugliness personified with no hope of ever escaping his early-twenties exile until a youth called Johnny decided to knock on his front door. Why watch something when you know the story?

Are you currently working on a second novel?

I do not require another character assassination. The literary world seems as immune to raw talent as the current music industry. I fully believe when our current artless and guileless society is consigned and resigned to the ages and a sophisticated society develops, although I do not have hope in this regard, that List of the Lost will be compared to Joyce, Beckett, or Woolf.

Have you any other ambitions artistically? I get the feeling that you could knock out a great play or two

To appear on stage with Dale Winton. Once this has been achieved I would like to become permanent manager of Dagenham Athletic.

The record industry seemingly remains fucked, and yet Sparks have managed to sign a new major deal, so why is it that a seminal artist such as you has been unable to find a label?

The songs are there, the interest is not. I am not a complete slag and will not chase the labels, the labels must chase the artist. I am open to offers.

I thought that it was a great shame that you fell out with Kristeen Young and Tony Visconti, but it was a very stressful time for you back then. Has there been any contact since?

I would like to say more but I will just say less. A reunion would be akin to standing naked in the rain waiting for the lightning but only hearing thunder.

You recently caused some controversy by producing a t-shirt with James Baldwin's face on it, and your lyrics, 'I wear black on the outside, because black is how I feel on the inside' - it is obvious to me that you were simply paying homage to Baldwin rather than making any other statement whatsoever, so why did you pull it?

Publicity stunt.

I went to see a Smiths tribute band recently, and I was quite surprised that the song that went down the best was Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now. It is a song that you no longer sing, is this because the press have used it's title so negatively over the years?

There are many songs one refuses to sing. I pay no attention to press headlines. Are they still calling me Bigmouth?

Finally, what is the eerie noise at the beginning of I'm Not A Man, and what film was the clip taken from when you sing it on stage

The hopes and aspirations of our childhoods and the crushing reality of our adulthood.


In response to Morrissey's enquiry as to whether or not the press are still calling him 'Bigmouth', the answer is a firm yes, as only yesterday the Daily Mirror posted the headline Bigmouth signs again: Morrissey set for surprise comeback after battling throat cancer. The Mirror story suggests that Morrissey; who hasn't in fact battled throat cancer, has signed with new management - Deckstar Management, under the guidance of Peter Katsis.

In other news, the last two 'scheduled' concerts of the current tour have now taken place, and there was a little 'sign' for us MorrisseysWorlders at both Houston on Friday, and Dallas last night.

At the concert in Sugar Land, Houston, Morrissey took to the stage in a rather snazzy/hideous (delete as you see fit) blue and gold shirt, just hours after Dawn Mist had left a comment on FTM which read, "The moonlight hour encircles me. The ghost wraps me in shades of blue and gold." A 'coincidence', of course.



It was Kerry 'Boozey' Messenger who linked Dawn's "blue and gold" words to the shirt, and when Heather reported yesterday in the comments section of FTM that Morrissey had said on stage in Houston, "I'm fully aware of how attractive I am... Not very!",  Kerry also linked these words to another part of Dawn's comment of Friday, "Vanity is my forte. Vanity and humiliation."

Dawn took to FTM again yesterday at 5.23pm (11.23am Dallas time) to respond to Kerry:

"Keen eyes, swift. Forever holding the light, forever alert, aware and a care. The third in the shared pod. Words are numbers, colours are bones. Skin is fragile.
Youth is on your side, death is on one. Memory to treasure, memory to astound, remember to stay. Beat the fear, beat the hate, beat the fate."

It was also reported that roses were handed out to those in the front of the queue at Houston, but as to whether this was anything to do with Morrissey or not, I have no idea.

In Dallas last night, the song Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me was added to the set. 'Coincidentally', on Thursday I had posted a poll on Twitter asking, 'What is the best song on Strangeways?', with the only choice being Death of a Disco Dancer. Heather replied to my poll by tweeting, "Lol, why isn't the most obvious choice on here? Last Night I Dreamt." When I woke up this morning, Morrissey (as @Morfessa) had already retweeted both my original tweet asking what is the best song, and Heather's reply about it being Last Night I Dreamt. It would appear that Morrissey agrees with Heather!

And finally, before singing Trumpshifters of the World Unite at the end of last night's concert, Morrissey addressed the audience, saying, "So, you've been very nice, in fact you've been nice", which could be interpreted as a nod to Kristeen Young's latest single, entitled, er, Nice!

*Goes off singing* Let me sing a funny song, with crazy words that roll along, and if my song can start you laughing, I'm happy, yeah, happy. Let me sing a sad refrain, of broken hearts that loved in vain, and if my song can start you crying, I'm happy

  3. Thank you so much. How lucky are we to feast our eyes on such such an exclusive interview. I am drooling at the thought of a Morrissey & Bassey duet. Shirley Bassey was often heard on the record player when I was growing up & my Grampa (usually after a skinful) would recall seeing her sing in the local working mens clubs before she hit the big time.
    I was rather struck by 'acceptance' as a 48th Birthday memory. And I smiled at the more recent exert.
    A cracking interview. Thanks again.

    Last Night I Dreamt is always a winner. I must have missed the poll thingy but am glad Morrissey didn't.
    Grand blogging, cheers Rats.

I cannot believe that more people aren't leaving comment, although it isn't helping that the likes of Roberto Ferdenzi are posting all over Twitter that the interview is fake. Poor old Roberto, I'm afraid he doesn't seem to get too much right.

  6. Thanks for answering so many questions. I was riddled by the answer about the t-shirt; publicity stunt? Was it a stunt in terms of you knew it would raise questions with people who'd fall over the songtext in combination with Baldwin's photo? (Don't tell me I just answered the question...)
    Please stay an inspiring Bigmouth for as long as you live. We need more people like you.

  7. I think a duet with Shirley Bassey would be lovely. She has such a powerful voice. Better hurry though, she is 80.

  8. Last Night I Dreamt certainly started me crying and made me exceedingly happy. Thanks again to Morrissey for that wonderful surprise and for this superb interview, full of wit and interesting insights. I agree with EARS that a Morrissey/Bassey duet would be heavenly - Let Me Sing is such a perfect song about the power of music and singing. And the 'acceptance' comment at 48 stood out for me too. As I approach that age, I have to say that I still have a way to go to reach acceptance. Really hoping the prospect of a new album will become a greater possibility with the new management, and hoping Moz can enjoy some well-earned R&R.

  14. With 'Last Night I Dreamt', it's hardly a matter of Morrissey agreeing with me, it's me agreeing with him. I think that he and Johnny considered that song to be their masterpiece that best encapsulated the spirit of The Smiths. The depth of emotion and the way it expands the boundaries of pop music is simply incredible and why I love it so much. To me, it's the essence of the 'magic, true-ness, and unbelievable' that we recently read about.

    1. A lovely comment Heather. Morrissey has a remarkable gift of grasping painful, raw emotion & transcribes this through his music into something wistful, poignant & so much more.

  18. Morrissey's comment about Bowie's Blackstar is spot on. I remember getting into an argument on Twitter with Boy George the day after Blackstar was released (before Bowie died) (See FTM Day 1582). I said that Blackstar wasn't as good as Bieber's Purpose LP, to which Boy George berated me, even though he hadn't actually listened to Blackstar! This was a perfect example that Bowie was living on previous reputation. "Lyrics that are at best banal and at worst, Simon Le Bon".... why is it that whenever I interview Morrissey, he mentions Simon Le Bon?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have to say that I understand why Shirley Bassey, apart from her being a great singer she used to be on late at night when we only had three channels (also Tom Jones) I can remember staying up to watch them with my mother, I guess Moz did the same.. on another note I used to also watch the BBC on a Saturday afternoon when I wasn't watching city that is.. it was there I used to watch lots of films some musicals, some not etc etc and that is where I first saw Steve Cochrane on a Saturday lunchtime film.. memories hey

Or would that be "selling out" in your opinion?
