Mister Zero Talent [re: tonyinsf]  

I have never understood why Morrissey and The Smiths got praised for their music beyond maybe five songs.

True 80s crap.

The man can't sing. Back in the 80s when that Smth hype started I saw some live show on German tv and was shocked: How could anybody with a horrible live voice as him be hailed a hero? A shitty whinger who underpassed the already poor standards of most of the music of that era. Easily. And their studio recordings were nothing but the fine art of repetition heavily due to Morrissey's one tone singing but also to Johnny Marr's fairly stylish but also fairly limited guitar playing. A one trick pony.

I saw Johnny Marr live a few years ago - ranks among the most boring shows I ever witnessed. And his singing makes even Morissey standing a chance for not coming last in the most miserable live singer contest.

I am sure that Morissey would have long been forgotten as a musician if he hadn't produced a few headlines about his weird persona at the early stages of his success. And as he seems clever enough to undestand that he cannot cut it as a singer he tries to get back to the top by what got him there before: Making headlines. At least tiny ones.

And I want to believe
In the madness that calls 'now'
