“Nothing the world holds could match the love waiting for me in Mexico City” Morrissey
In Mexico Morrissey has always been a prophet with honour. His songs of love, loss and longing, have found a huge audience and chimed with generations raised on rancheras and mariachis and their singers who were not afraid to cross the line.
Now the love has been returned, with a band made in Mexico City reinventing Morrissey’s and The Smiths’ songs south of the border. Together they sound like a brass and string led combo from the smallest village with the biggest bleeding heart.
“This surprising cultural connection to Morrissey’s poetry brings with it a fresh style. The bold combination of acoustic and electronic instruments jolts Morrissey’s songs into a vibrant new light.” The Independent
“Even more powerful than the already-great original.” Rolling Stone
Mexrrissey was commissioned by Como No for our La Linea Festival in London in 2015. We now co-manage the project and have overseen the global release of the album No Manchester and international touring.
