Johnny Marr Not a Fan of Spotify; Also Mad at Haim

Posted by: Jason Tate (12/18/13)
In the newest issue of NME, Johnny Marr says that he can't think of "anything more opposite to punk rock than Spotify" and then lays into Haim for dedicating a song to British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Itís really simple: they made themselves look like idiots. Itís ridiculous. No-one put a gun to their head. The Conservatives tried to do the same thing with The Smiths, to re-appropriate us in a false way, to be cool by association.

Yeah maybe I'm wrong about this but I feel like most of the artists criticizing Spotify and the like are from an older generation who actually could make money from their music.

But according to Morrissey, him and Marr didn't make a dime as the Smiths either so who knows.

David Cameron is a cunt so I'm very disappointed with Haim.

Obama shakes Raul Castro's hand, so he's a commie. Haim takes a photo with David Cameron, so they're idiots. Since when did being polite automatically equate an endorsement?

In their defense, they probably know little to nothing about British politics. Not saying that makes this wrong or right; it's just an observation. I highly doubt they feel strongly either way about David Cameron.

To be fair, Haim's bassist, Este, ended their in-studio set by pointing at Cameron and saying something like "All for you, DC". I get where Johnny's coming from a bit in that regard, but it is complete over-exaggeration to say they're collaborating with the Prime Minister. She called him "DC"; if anything, she was being completely cheeky about it.
