The Show: Flirting with disaster

RIP Dele Fadele, NME journalist during the 1980’s and 1990’s. Although he actually died sometime during 2018 the news only became public a few weeks ago.

In 1992 he became one of the first people to call Morrissey out on his flirtation with right wing imagery.

“For what’s it’s worth, I don’t think Morrissey is a racist. He just likes the trappings and the culture that surround the outsider element. He has some racist friends. And if he carries on this way, he’ll have thousands more.”

Unfortunately, we now know how that particular flirtation turned out.

Mr. Fadele also fronted his own band, Welfare Heroine, and it’s their ever-so-slightly-baggy cover version of the 1969 Peter Sarstedt song “Where Do You Go To My Lovely” that features in today’s show.

And on with the show…
