Actually, what I’m going to admit is probably a greater sin than dissing the King. I hated The Smiths. Specifically, I hated Morrissey’s miserable moaning vocals and self importance. (I was at sixth form during the height of their fame and I admit that part of it was a reaction against the wankers who were Smiths fans). Their songs have always sounded better when covered or mixed to remove the quiffed ones voice.
Having alienated masses of people, there’s an interview with Morrissey in the Guardian.
