Woke up with this in my head, which is weird because it's pretty typical late-era Morrissey. There are a couple cute things about this song: one, it seems to be about an actual violent gang (songs about "the gang" never are!), and two, it's a nice, warm portrait of someone who isn't at all warm or nice. If I wrote songs I would love to write sideways jokes like "and the not very rich and the very poor" but I am not Morrissey.
Always loved Morrissey....and The Smiths....only managed to see him live once......back in 1989....North American Tour. I may be the first of my gang to die....my sense of humour sometimes takes a dark turn due to my impending demise......8 months of fighting colon cancer.... ...........next week will be better!!!!!
