They wouldn't let it lie

As hesitant as I am to have a pop at someone who's just revealed he's been undergoing treatment for cancer for the last 18 months, I can't help noticing that Morrissey remains characteristically bitter - this time getting his band to deliver a blunt message to former label Harvest from the stage.

He's not the only curmudgeonly solo artist who's unable to let anything lie, though. Take Mark Kozelek, for instance - who's followed up on his promise of writing, recording and releasing a song called 'War On Drugs: Suck My Cock' that references his recent on-stage slatings of both The War On Drugs and his own audience. Still, unlike Moz, at least he seems to have a sense of humour, having invited The War On Drugs themselves to perform the song with him - an invitation they haven't taken up, yet.
