MORRISSEY B-DAY, SMITHS & MORRISSEY PODCAST : PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES / HAND IN GLOVE / EVERYDAY IS LIKE SUNDAY / AMERICA IS NOT THE WORLD etc

Σαν σήμερα, 22 Μαΐου 1959 γεννήθηκε στο Davyhulme, Urmston του Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου, ο Steven Patrick Morrissey, μια από τις σημαντικότερες προσωπικότητες της γενιάς του, τόσο για την τεσσάρων δεκαετιών καλλιτεχνική του παρουσία, με Smiths και έπειτα σόλο, όσο και για τη μοναδικά θαρραλέα στάση σε πολιτικά και κοινωνικά ζητήματα. Αυτή, που του έχει εξασφαλίσει χαρακτηρισμούς όπως “ρατσιστής”, “ακροδεξιός” κλπ. απ΄τους συνήθεις politically correct κύκλους.

Morrissey είναι απ’ τους ελάχιστους ανθρώπους στη σημερινή show business [τέτοιου επιπέδου “αναγνωρισιμότητας”] για τους οποίους αισθάνομαι αγάπη και εκτίμηση.
Έφτιαξα ένα podcast με τραγούδια από ολόκληρη την καριέρα του.

On this date May 22, 1959 in Davyhulme, Urmston, United Kingdom, Steven Patrick Morrissey was born, one of the most important public figures of his generation. Not only for his four decades long artistic presence, first with the Smiths and then solo, but also for his uniquely courageous attitude towards political and social issues.
This has led to him being characterised as “racist”, “far-right” etc. by the usual ignorant politically correct circles.
Morrissey is one of the very few people in today’s show business for whom I feel love and deep appreciation.
I made a podcast with songs from the Smiths’ and Morrissey’s albums.

    Crazy, but I heard about the Smiths, a lot. Always meant to listen, and finally today heard them, and more, Morrissey. Wonderful!I enjoyed every moment.
    Also, Jeep (my cat) jumped up and slept by my laptop the entire podcast. That is unusual.

      Perhaps the cat sensed the calming presence of a great animal rights activist on the microphone!!!

        That could be!
        Animals know when they are loved…. or not.
