Stephen Street interview on BBC News site

A nice little article about Stephen Street in advance of his Outstanding Achievement award at the Music Producers' Guild Awards.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-51360201

Includes a few little things like this:

During the earlier recording of Strangeways, the producer remembers how [nearly all of] The Smiths liked to balance hard work with references to their favourite comedy.

"Johnny [Marr] and Andy [Rourke] were completely obsessed with Spinal Tap," he says, "and there were mini Stonehenges of cigarette packs left all over the studio.... Andy had learned - by note - the bass line to Big Bottom!

"We only did that when Morrissey wasn't in the room, though. Don't worry."

I know. Artists with something original to say are difficult? Who knew? I guess it's easier that listing all of the lame artists who are easy to work with.
Reductive does not equate with 'original'.
Morrissey is possibly the biggest plagiarist on the planet.

Morrissey wouldn’t have had such a great start to his solo career without Stephen Street.... let us all not forget this fact.... every day is like Sunday... is one of the greatest singles ever.... morrissey made a mistake here, it should have been the lead single...a sure number 1 just like first of the gang should have been the lead single.... oh well I’ll never learn
