    By telling me that I was supposed to like The Smiths and loads of other tuneless, pretentious, art student shít.

    It took me until I was 17 to realise that the fault wasn't with me, but with them.

    Perhaps. Perhaps it would be more accuare to say that it took me until 17 to become adult enough to realise that the opinions of others are of no consequence to me. Particularly the sort of people who champion The Smiths.

    Whether the Smiths were any good or not is, of course, a matter of taste and opinion. In my universe they might have been quite good had that complete pillock not been their singer.

    And I never felt under any pressure from that corrupt and pretentious rag to like or dislike anything on their say so. I only ever really read the letter from John Connolly, New Barnet at the end each week anyway.

    Well, no. Because without Morrissey, they wouldn't have been The Smiths. They'd have been Johnny Marr and some other cvnt. And that's never worked out particularly well if you ask me.
