Year of Release: 1990
Badly recorded, shambling, jokey and frequently rather coarse indie singles have been a staple of the scene since its birth, and as you'll probably have gathered from the sleeve, this single isn't particularly complimentary towards Mozzer. Taking in (almost certainly unauthorised) samples of The Smiths work, it poses the rather confusing question: "What shall we do when 100,000 Morrisseys come marching over the hill?" It's an eventuality I've never really planned for.
With its thudding drum machine and barking vocals this is very close to TISM in spirit, and indeed I've heard rumours that it may actually be a TISM member moonlighting - certainly, both artists are from Melbourne and have a similar DIY ethic. Whatever, despite picking up some press at the time, this single failed to really set many people's souls alight in the UK irrespective of some mischievous airplay from Peel, and remains a noisy and indecent curio.
Mr. Floppy eventually released a whole album on Zombie Penis Death records entitled "The Unbearable Lightness of Being A Dickhead" which has largely been forgotten about despite including a cover version of Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights". With that, the band disappeared for good.
Incidentally, if Mrs Daves reaction has been anything to go by, Smiths and Morrissey fans alike seem to find this disc rather irritating.
