For a dude who lives in LA and bitches about the UK all the time he sure stuck it to the Americans by not releasing his autobiography in the US. The Penguin ‘Classic’ was on shelves October 17th pretty much everywhere but the land of the free. I mean, I know our head is too big but c’mon.
As a Twitter follower I was able to have a constant reminder of what I could not have all day long and it continues. As readers tear through the words of Moz they feel compelled to share the shock. America…we wait.
Excerpts and photo’s leaking proclaim that the book is full of snarky Morrissey-isms and really who would expect anything less? Youre giving the ultimate self loathing narcissist (hell yes that can exist!) a pen and a book deal and I’m surprised it’s not in volumes.
Amazon allowed us to order it and also allowed us to wait about three weeks so as Iman and I hold vigil at our mailboxes I am forced to piece meal the facts and curse loudly those priveledged to possess a copy. Oh and dont even get me started on the freakin book signing in Sweden. SWEDEN?? are you fucking kiddng me?
I swear if he doesnt do a signing in NY I will flip out- who am I kidding I am already flipping out. Here are some excerpts I stole from the filthy European jerks who can actually read it.
- He attended the opening night of Manchester’s Hacienda nightclub, which he said later became full of “disfigured disco dancers and goblinesque pork-pie chubbos with carroty-red curls smelling of pickled pig who claimed the Hacienda as their own public toilet”.
- He first met Johnny Marr after a Patti Smith gig at the Manchester Apollo. The guitarist’s first words to Morrissey were: “You’ve got a funny voice.”
- Factory Records boss Tony Wilson attended the first few Smiths gigs but dismissed Marr’s guitar playing, telling Morrissey: “All this Byrds stuff has been done and done.”
- Morrissey and Marr were “as thick as two short planks” when they signed their US record deal with Sire, the singer wrote. “We have no idea what we’re signing, in an act of legendary mental deficiency.”
