Morrissey: I'll Astonish You

Len Brown, Details, March 1991

"IF GEORGE MICHAEL had to live my life for five minutes, he'd strangle himself with the nearest piece of cord," says Morrissey as he walks through the woods surrounding Hook End Manor. A Tudor monastery now converted into a recording studio, Hook End is where he's been working on his new album, Kill Uncle, with Madness stalwarts Suggs and Bedders, and writer-producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley.
