Morrissey Cursed By The Smiths?
"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
