Morrissey Delivers To Deadline: Cilla Black And Jamie Oliver Eat Babies And The Meat Eating Queen Is Like A Paedo
MISERABILIST MORRISSEY has been been talking to fans. A few highlights to follow:
If you have access to You Tube, you should click on to what is called The video the meat industry doesn’t want you to see. If this doesn’t affect you in a moral sense then you’re probably granite. I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder. If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away. Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you “Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,” well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers
I would like the Queen of England to be asked why she wears an electrocuted bear-cub on her head…
He then hits a few people Anorak is all too happy to see targeted:
If Jamie ‘Orrible is so certain that flesh-food is tasty then why doesn’t he stick one of his children in a microwave?..
That’s Jamie Oliver, the white missionary to the working classes.
The singer Cilla Black recently appeared on television telling us how she was preparing leg of lamb for dinner, and since a lamb is a baby, I wondered what kind of mind Cilla Black could possibly have that would convince her that eating a baby is OK.
On another TV program an actor called Jeremy Edwards explained how excited he was at the discovery in Siberia of preserved Woolly Mammoths with enough DNA (flowing blood) to resurrect the animals – which have obviously been extinct for thousands of years. Edwards was excited by this because he said “I’d really like to try a Mammoth burger.”
In 2013 I published my Autobiography and it has been more successful than any record I have ever released, so, yes, I am mid-way through my novel. I have my hopes. The actuality is that radio stations will not play my music, and the majority of people have lost faith in the music industry, and it’s generally assumed – quite rightly – that the number one chart positions are “bought” by the major labels, so there really is no passion left in pop or rock music, and I don’t think people believe for an instant that the faces we constantly see on television and in magazines are remotely popular. It’s all, now, solely a question of marketing. All success stories are safe and dreary, and you will never be taken by surprise by a hit song that sounds out of place. This is not just my view but the view of everyone I know.
Is Morrissey a bore or inspired?
When he said the London Olympics was evoking “the spirit of 1939 Germany now pervades throughout media-brand Britain… WAKE UP WAKE UP”, he was only adding to the pre-Games welter of misery. Although the doomongery was undone by so much fun and humanity.
But Moz doesn’t conform and he remains entertaining, they say. But he does conform. He’s a conservative unhappy with the modern world. He wants us to see it his way. As he ages, that becomes less beguiling, more demanding for nostalgia and a less modern world.
Once upon a time, The Smiths and their singer had a lot to say. Pop was more than just the marketing. But without the brilliant music, he just speaks. And it’s all a bit predictable. And that, to his fans, is comforting, like village cricket and cream teas is to Ukip members. As Morrissey told Melody Maker: “I don’t like anything new. I’m really not modern to any degree at all.”
