“Nothing the world holds could match the love waiting for me in Mexico City” — Morrissey.
Morrissey has always been a prophet with honour. His songs of love, loss and longing, with powerful imagery and metaphors 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. Mexrrissey, born, raised and made in Mexico City, are 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.
Mexrrissey will play on the first day of Leeds International Festival at Church, Leeds.
Tickets are £17.50 and can be purchased from Jumbo Records and Crash Records, along with the ticket link provided.
