Turning The Inside Out.​

questioning Morrissey's answers June 2021

Obviously we know each other, and I receive a lot of questions to be handed on to you, so I will ask those questions on the pretense that I don't know you.

Yes, I get it.

What is it about Go_A that … makes you listen to them all day?

"SHUM" is the first bit of the answer, but there are more layers and I think when you are excited by a band you automatically want to go to where they come from - and even, in some cases, live there. So, I'm checking bedsits in Kiev. The singers that you fall in love with become whatever your imagination imagines, and Kateryna is so cold and bony and I can't wait to get to Ukraine. I haven't ever been there.

It's not quite the same thing, I know, but you've also been playing a lot of Tiny Tim lately. What's the attraction?

I was hoping you couldn't hear. Well, he was a genius - let's start with that. And I have...

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Morrissey On Free Speech, Islam and Mainstream Media Fake News - Kipper Central
BY REECE COOMBES · 3:29 PM, JUNE 30, 2019


Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, rock legend Morrissey gave his thoughts on freedom of speech, Islam, Halal meat and many other controversial and highly-suppressed topics, encouraging his fans not to be afraid of being called ‘racist’ for speaking out.

In a climate of increasing political censorship and de-platforming, it is incredibly risky for any musician to defend freedom of speech, and even more risky to criticise Islam and the media. But in this exclusive interview with Kipper Central, former Smiths frontman Morrissey has done just that. You can read the full, uncensored interview below:

*we apologize for the delay in printing this interview.


You cancelled 6 shows in Italy because of the incident. People are beginning to think your middle name is Cancellation.

I know. But, as far as I can see, many bands cancel and nothing is ever said about it. The song and dance made about my cancellations is usually from people who wouldn’t go to the concert in the first place.

But you will play the Canada dates?


Is your hand bad? Obviously it’s covered.

The stitches are out now but if I had shaken anyone’s hand last week blood would have spurted. That’s not a nice greeting.

I don’t think anyone ever believes that you’re ill, or that you fell, or whatever.

I know...

(Google Translation)

In recent years, Morrissey declared himself against massive migrations to Europe, questioned part of the #MeToo (which caused Daniel Grinbank to desist from producing his show in Argentina) and expressed his support to Anne Marie Waters, leader of For Britain, a right-wing party of the United Kingdom designated as anti-Islam. His interview with the German weekly Der Spiegel, published in December of last year, contained so many controversial textbooks that Morrissey decided to suspend the conversations with written media, with which he only speaks by email (in this way this note was made). Probably he did not change, but the context...

Morrissey: Un dandy de camisa abierta - Clarín.com (Argentina)

Translation to English:

You usually compose with others (just as you did during The Smith): how do these creative couples work?

-I do not consider myself a "musician" in a strict sense, so I like the idea of adding to the music with which my collaborator has been working. The vocal melody usually changes the musical direction of the song, that's true. But it's fine and I also know my place in the collaboration.

-If there are cases in which you only write the lyrics, is it the one that comes first or only arises after the melody?

-The lyrics are always in advance, but the "patch" to the music. It is a craft and at the same time requires effort. It's not easy, but I enjoy it. Because, as I once said, the lyrics should be written as if everyone was listening to you ...

Of course, Morrissey is one of the most interesting and curious figures in music. Not only for its importance in having written some of the most beautiful songs ahead of the historical The Smiths and later with its consolidated solo career, but because it is controversial. In interviews, he talks about what he thinks without fear of repression, whether it be the press or the fans.

To get an idea of his statements, the singer, who is a nationalist and...

Morrissey: "Son días de indignación moral salvajemente superficial" -
El Comercio Perú

By José Tsang, Nov. 23, 2018.

"These are days of savagely superficial moral outrage"

Before his concert in Peru, the former The Smiths answers a questionnaire to refer to "El cóndor pasa", Venezuela, his intoxication in Lima and other issues.

The healthy exercise of thinking differently seems devalued. In music, an illustrious member of that minority club is called Morrissey . The media usually highlight their statements and the 59-year-old British artist defends himself with his songs. His latest album...
