Quote of the day

"There's no longer any way to make the case that Morrissey ever meant anything other than what he says".

So comments Stewart Lee, slightly ruefully, in a Guardian article in which he recounts largely purging Moz's music from his record collection "with sadness for the sorry state of things, not erectile pride in my own virtuousness". He's right: often the artist can be separated from the art (albeit not always defensibly), but with pretty much every pronouncement he's made for the last few years Morrissey has made that impossible.

(Thanks to Bill for the link.)
