But maybe in the next world?
So, are we really the sum of what we listen to? Music, identity and politics? And all that? But, anyway, I'm with Team Marr on this one, I must confess. Just STFU, you posh Etonian twat. This continual name-dropping of The Smiths at every 'convenient' political moment won't save you when the 'Fuck the Fees' students eventually break through the barricades and stormtrooper-it-up through Westminster with a noose (or a fire extinguisher) already prepared and to hand (please note, the days of sponges and rusty spanners are very fucking long gone now). But, really, what would Craig Gannon say about all this? That's the interesting thing here. I guess he'd just ask for a wee shot on the guitar. Or ask for his owed wages. And he'd probably call Morrissey and Marr a right pair of old cunts as well (and kind of deserved that insult is, let's be honest, what with 'Years of Refusal' and 'Boomslang' to their names). Still, pretty great music they once played together, eh?

In other news, this is a great BBC Scotland interview with Fifer (and Romani) singer-songwriter Jackie Leven. Thanks to mah pal Maggie for the nod on this one. He is mah man.
