Morrisseys Second Cousin? Anto Morra "London Irish", Reviewed

Another Bigmouth Strikes Again

 

 Anto Morra hides his name in the abbreviation.  Anthony Morrissey makes sure everyone knows he is The Moz’s second cousin.  Before we go any further they havent even met.  Before I go even less further the Irish/London bit has been owned by his cuz with “Irish Blood English Heart”.

That all out of the way we can concentrate on the tune and video.  Been called a  “Limey Cockney” scum?  No you havent who the hell are you kidding.  I love the British Irish pride and I love the pub sing along, but c’mon it’s 2013.  This shit does well in decades past but now?  Silly sorta.

 What I find worse than the weak lyric is the really bad fiddle.  I mean super duper bad.  Maybe it’s Anton’s child? If so Im sorry but otherwise..whoa.

That being said if Morrisseys name wasnt hooked on to this I wouldnt have listened.  I dig the Pogues and I love ‘pub’ chants but this one seems far to contrived.  Like, ‘lets find a song to cheer too!’.  I adore National pride, most likely cuz I have none.  This song is great in your county, your local, your social…it is not mainstream enough to make it big anywhere but Antons back alley, and that’s ok.

A quick hop arround Morra’s site pretty much confirms this is his genre and there he is happy to be.  Good for him!  I do wish him well, I do admire him for not exploiting the Morrissey connection (too much) and well.  Yeah.  It’s different!  OH!! and the video is sorta cure in a folksy way…plus it shows Joe Strummer Subway!
