This interview took place early June, 1991, backstage at Dublin’s National Stadium, several hours before Morrissey went on stage (the support acts were the Would Be’s) in support of his Kill Uncle album. To my knowledge, it is one of perhaps many (or very few, even?) ‘lost’ Morrissey interviews, as it has never shown up as part of the research for any Smiths/Morrissey book I’ve read in over 20 years.
Contrary to some warped sense of popular opinion, you’re not some freaky avant-garde outsider, are you? “My most recent record, Theatre is Evil [credited to Amanda Palmer & the Grand Theft Orchestra] is practically a pop album. I also feel like it’s one of my most liberated records so far because it’s exactly the kind of album I wanted to make.
