They both had at least one member that played the drums.

And all members of both bands had members.

While we're on the subject of Morrissey's influences, I've always found it bizarre that the man himself, or for that matter any cultural commentators, never mentions Philip Larkin. Has Morrissey ever proffered forth an opinion on the 'Hermit From Hull', or have I made a connection that no one else has made before? I can't think of a single Larkin poem that I can use as evidence of influencing Mozzer - rather there's a melancholic and ironic mood to all their work that they both seem to share.

BTW, why isn't this in Classic Threads?

presumably because nobody's asked the admin to move it.

as for larkin, i'm really nowhere near familiar enough with his work to be able to comment. i know morrissey nicked a few lines from he likes of shelagh delaney and "jumped up pantry boy" is a line from sleuth, isn't it?

Yep

I think there's a fair bit of similarity with Larkin's ideas but i kind of get the impression that if Morrissey had actually read much by him he would have gone on and on about it in interviews
