for the people who are deeply into the smith try female band THE ORGAN. When I was yesterday in a pub I read the NME about favourite records there was someone who wrote about THE ORGAN which put me a big smile on my face ... time to grab out their ep's and share this hint with you.

Love the Smiths, and I like much of his solo work but he is such a clown. He makes it so hard to get past his personality. I remember going to see him in 1997 and it felt like he only played for a half an hour. My buddy and I thought that he was going to come out and do the 6 encore thing because that sort of suits his personality, but he played one song, left, and the house lights came up. That was that. I felt like someone stole my wallet.
That “c^nt” Morrissey kicks dirt on David Bowie’s grave
The Smiths singer not-so-subtly spurned the Thin White Duke during his concert in Manchester over the weekend

In 1995, Morrissey was asked to open for David Bowie’s The Outside Tour. Their time together lasted only a few dates, however, as — wait for it — Morrissey had to pull out of the tour due to an illness. Given that Morrissey returned to the stage just a few days later for his own headlining gig, it was widely believed that the two musicians got into a tiff backstage, leading to Morrissey’s untimely exit. Over the next two decades, Morrissey proceeded to take jabs at Bowie in the press. He later said his remarks were merely “high ribbing,” but the damage was done.
In 2006, Bowie turned down an offer to collaborate with Morrissey on Ringleader of the Tormentors, and he again rejected Moz in 2013 when the latter sought to use an image of the pair as the artwork for his reissue of “The Last of the Famous International Playboys”. Instead, Morrissey was forced to go with a photo of Rick Astley.
Years later, and even after Bowie’s untimely passing, it seems as if Morrissey still harbors a grudge.
As NME points out, during a gig in Manchester over the weekend, Morrissey not-so-subtly snubbed Bowie prior to performing “All the Best Ones Dies”. He name-checked several prominent celebrities who had passed over the last year, including comedian Victoria Wood, actress Caroline Aherne, boxer Muhammad Ali, and Prince. However, when it became evident he would not pay homage to David Bowie, fans responded with jeers. One person even went as far to call Morrissey a “c^nt.”
Lots of Morrissey hate here I see (and love also yes). I understand the reasons behind it, but i'm a massive The Smiths/Morrissey fan, and then you kind of have to swallow a lot of..well shall we say eccentric behavior of Steven. I personally love his political incorrectness. Great lyricist, sings about things that other people rarely sing about. Touches me deeply, annoys me deeply, and that is alright I think. So never a dull moment in Moz-land for me. Although I understand that many people like to feed him his own cat while he is tied to his chair. But I just like that Bigmouth and every time he strikes again..
