American demand for Morrissey’s recently published ‘Autobiography’ was so big that plans were quickly arranged for it to be released here. But it seems that something’s missing.
What Americans call Thanksgiving, Morrissey likes to not-so-sweetly refer to as “Thankskilling.”
Under the heading “The World Won’t Listen” (cribbed from the title of a 1987 Smiths compilation album), first in his sights is Melissa Bachman, who recently sparked outrage after posting a photo with a male lion she killed on a hunt in South Africa.
In an interview with Brooklyn Vegan, Marr talked about the likelihood of putting pen to paper and telling his side of the Smiths storied history. Turns out it’s pretty much a done deal.
“He has been there all of my life. He will always be pressed to my heart. Thank God for those, like Lou, who move within their own laws, otherwise imagine how dull the world would be.”
Having survived the threat of cancellation due to a “content dispute” with its publisher Penguin Classics three days before its original release, Morrissey’s Autobiography finally surfaced today in Europe and it’s filled with juicy bits.
However (and this is a big however), Autobiography will see the light of day in the U.K. and Europe on October 17. Whatever this content disagreement was, it apparently was not enough to keep the book off the shelves in Moz’s native continent.
