Ugly Christmas Sweaters From Queens Of The Stone Age, Metallica, Motörhead, And More

Last year we were all amused by the Slayer Christmas sweater, the heaviest and coziest way for your torso to ring in the holidays. This year Motörhead, Metallica, Descendents, Death From Above 1979, Dying Fetus, and a bunch of Victory Records bands got in on the trend, leading Metal Injection to declare ugly metal Christma… More »

Morrissey Denounces Melissa Bachman, Pippa Middleton, David Cameron In Epic Statement

Recently, Melissa Bachman, who hosts the hunting show Deadly Passion on the somewhat obscure American cable network Pursuit Channel, Tweeted a photo of herself smiling and posing over a lion she’d killed. The photo immediately went viral. Morrissey saw it, and you’ll never believe him, but it set him the fuck off. In a massive… More »

Morrissey Opens Up, Settles Scores In Autobiography

After some drama surrounding its publication, Morrissey has published his new memoir Autobiography through Penguin Classics, and it’s out now in Europe. (He’s doing a one-off book signing in Gothenburg, Sweden today, and fans have been lining up since last night.)

Universal Shuts Down Smiths/Peanuts Mashup Tumblr

UPDATE: Via True To You:

Morrissey would like to stress that he has not been consulted over any takedown request to remove the Tumblr blog named ‘This Charming Charlie’. Morrissey is represented by Warner-Chappell Publishing, and not Universal Music Publishing, (who have allegedly demanded that the lyrics be removed). Morrissey is delighted and… More »

Morrissey Halts Autobiography

You’re never going to believe this, but Morrissey has canceled something at the 11th hour because of a dispute. In a mere three days, Morrissey was set to release his autobiography, which he called Autobiography, through Penguin Books, and this would’ve almost certainly been a fascinating read. But a statement on Morrissey’s website claims that… More »

Morrissey Cancels Remaining Tour Dates

Well doesn’t this seem familiar. Morrissey has announced the cancellation of his South American tour due to (as he puts it) lack of funds. With the distressing news, though, has come a typically charming note from Morrissey explaining his own frustrations with it:… More »

Watch The Morrissey 25: Live Trailer

If you’re not already a diehard, the idea of a Morrissey show can be as simultaneously alluring and forbidding as, say, going to a midnight screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the first time: You want to see it, but you don’t want to be the one non-obsessive in the room. Fortunately for… More »

Read Amanda Palmer’s Open Letter To Morrissey Offering Crowdsourcing Help

There are no words, really. Are there? The headline says it all. The subtext? I, Amanda Palmer, am trolling the fuck out of you, Stereogum. But let’s put aside our own narcissism for a moment! Because in that department, we are mere mortals in the blinding light of a great and terrible sun god. Yes,… More »

Morrissey Is Back On His Anti-Thatcher Shit

The recent death of the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher caused complicated feelings in a lot of Brits. Thatcher may have been a transformative public figure in her time, but in her arch-conservative policies, her embrace of militarism and privatization, she’s been widely reviled in much of the UK for decades. But Stephen Patrick… More »

Morrissey: “Margaret Thatcher Was A Terror Without An Atom Of Humanity”

UPDATE: Looks like the statement we posted yesterday — Morrissey saying “Margaret Thatcher was a terror without an atom of humanity” — was cobbled together from an old Loaded interview with the singer, given well in advance of her passing. (This via Morrissey blog Morrissey-Solo.) Morrissey has since released an actual statement (via PFK) o… More »

Staples Center Didn’t Go Vegetarian For Morrissey

Beautiful creatures died deaths for no reason, and then were served at the Staples Center last night :( After a lengthy and confusing back-and-forth between Morrissey and the Staples Center regarding whether or not Moz’s L.A. show last night would be 100% vegetarian, the venue ultimately could not bring itself to stand against animal suffering… More »

Morrissey Rips McCartney

Be straight with me: Is Morrissey okay? Like, is there some method to his madness? Is he just having a laugh here? Is he getting back at us for repeatedly inquiring about the possibility of a Smiths reunion even though he’s made it perfectly clear that’s not happening? Because I’m starting to wonder about the… More »

Morrissey @ Balboa Theatre, San Diego 2/27/13

Looking fit as a ferret and sounding like his normal suave self, Morrissey made a triumphant return to the stage in San Diego after slugging it out with an ulcer, Staples Center and Jimmy Kimmel. It wasn’t surprising that Morrissey kicked things off with another jab to Jimmy Kimmel by playing “That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore.”… More »

Morrissey Responds To Kimmel Diss

There’s an old bit of rock apocrypha — since refuted — that goes a little something like this: On the eve of the two-and-a-half-year Use Your Illusion tour in 1991, Axl Rose gathered the other members of Guns N’ Roses, and threatened to quit the band if they didn’t sign over to him all right… More »

Seven hours ago, a status update on Morrissey’s Facebook page announced the singer’s return to live performance following a bout with illness, saying:

The 10 Best Morrissey Songs

A handful of weeks back, Morrissey took ill and was forced to cancel a run of US tour dates. The source of his malady was mysterious, and the nature of his response to the cancellations was typically, pricelessly acid and morbid. In what may as well have amounted to the Gettysburg Address of press release… More »

Morrissey Insists That Yes, Staples Center Will Go 100% Vegetarian For Him

UPDATE:

This thing has taken on the tense rhythm of a Nadal-Federer rally at Wimbledon 2008. Morrissey is, of course, Federer. Why? Because they kind of look alike, don’t you think? They totally do! Fine, whatever. Anyway, Staples Center just returned Moz’s backhand smash from late yesterday (see below) with a delicately placed… More »
