Morrissey Cursed By The Smiths?

06/30/2011
.
(Gibson) Morrissey has no record deal, and he believes the success of The Smiths is to blame. The former Smiths frontman has enough material written to record an entire album, but he's thus far found no takers among record label executives.

"I think labels, for the most part, want to sign new discoveries so that that label alone is seen to be responsible for the rise of the artist," the singer said, speaking to Pitchfork. "Not many labels want bands who have already made their mark, because their success is usually attributed to some other label somewhere else at another time."

Morrissey added that it's not just record labels who fixate on an artist's early work. Journalists, he says, are guilty as well. "The press only writes about me in terms of The Smiths story," he said. "The fact that I've had three solo number one albums or even 25 years of eventful solo activity is never mentioned anywhere. Odd." more on this story
