Of all of the awful things to unfold this year, Morrissey being dropped by his record label doesn't rank particularly highly. In fact, it doesn't even rank at all. For Moz, though, the development is "perfectly in keeping with the relentless galvanic horror of 2020". Not one for overstatement or overreaction, is he?
His latest album, released in March, was titled I Am Not A Dog On A Chain. Well, he's certainly no longer on a chain, so he should be happy. Whatever happened to "I'm OK by myself"?
