The Smiths to reform aka Morrissey’s mortgage payments must be getting tight

THERE is a rumour that never goes out. That’s right, it is that time again to talk about the reforming of The Smiths. Apparently, the furiously overrated band are going to put aside their differences and return to the stage this Autumn. If The Stone Roses can do it, then why can’t Morrissey & Co?

Looking at the hatchet buried by Ian Brown and John Squire, it appears that everyone is willing Morrissey and Marr to do the same, and apparently, they’ve found ‘common ground’ with each other. Or, as everyone else calls it, ‘money’.

Of course, should this happen – which is almost definitely won’t – it will be the first time The Smiths have strutted their pale stuff since 1987. Morrissey and Marr are a must for this to be a real reunion… Rourke and Joyce both sued over the band, so whether they’ll be asked back is another matter entirely.

This news comes on the back of a source revealing that the Superheroes Of Fey had been in talks to perform with a well-known promoter. Now, the group have turned down £76 million in the past, so the money for this must be terrifyingly high.

Mozza devotees and Smiths fantasists must be furious, aroused, excited, weary and having kittens about all this. Just like Morrissey on an average day then…
