  • He had a great band at that point. Saw them live in about 1995. They were fantastic.
  • regardless of its intent or its writer's intent, it is a fantastic pop song and it's not worth condemning it over the title "national front disco" - because lyrically, the rest is preeeetty much innocuous.
  • The main problem with the song is that Morrissey is known for his vitriolic cattiness and cutting put-downs, and this song has none of that. Compared to most Morrissey songs, he does not sound bitter or upset about the National Front's existence. Satire when you play it straight and include no line of condemnation anywhere is allowing people to interpret it however they want to, which is dangerous when you're playing with the subject of racism -- it's not a grey area. Of course it's ironic that the National Front would have a disco, something that existed thanks to black people (but then almost all music of the 20th century did), but he doesn't exactly spell it out and tell us how or why the NF are cretins.
  • "He is really brave for singing the lyric 'England for the English'." Why?
  • The existence of a National Front disco is perfect irony. And this song is a story about a boy. It's not Morrissey's manifesto or him singing in the first person. I'm sorry if art is too hard for you.
  • love it
  • truely stupid
  • .
  • If you misunderstand his tone in the song, you are truely stupid.
  • one of morrisseys best songs
