Morrissey Teams Up With PETA  for ‘Holidays Are Murder on Turkeys’ Campaign.

Morrissey Teams Up With PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) for ‘Holidays Are Murder on Turkeys’ Campaign.
Seattle – For his November/December U.S. tour, Morrissey has teamed up with PETA to spread his own brand of seasonal cheer: a campaign called “Holidays Are Murder on Turkeys.”
The flier’s specially crafted artwork (viewable here) features photos of Morrissey with animals behind a cartoon image of the veg icon holding aloft a sign bearing the campaign slogan. He has recruited PETA members to hand the fliers to thousands of fans exiting each of his 17 U.S. shows, including performances at the Hollywood Bowl and Madison Square Garden.
“We hope this unique artwork will end up on refrigerators across the country as a reminder that animals shouldn’t be sacrificed for holiday feasts,” says PETA Vice President Dan Mathews.
Morrissey once hosted a PETA Thanksgiving dinner at which a turkey was the guest of honor rather than the main course. For more information, please visit PETA.org.

Just think about the sorts of bands who were making it big in the 90’s when she burst onto the music scene…blur (four middle-class lads from Colchester), Pulp (a gaggle of Sheffield based outsiders with a female keyboard player), Oasis (four legitimately working class lads from Manchester), Suede (four foppish chaps). ”I see where you’re going with this”, I hear you wail, “You’re going to argue that Madan railed against the machine because she was a…woman. But what about Sleeper and Elastica or Kenickie?”. You are right but it wasn’t just her sex that set her apart she was also a rare person of colour in a largely white music…
