I think it's more the spirit of the thing. Even if you think the Clash's attempts at 'world' music (for serious want of a better phrase) on Sandinista! are hamfisted and embarrassing, at least they were acknowledging that the rest of the world exists; The Smiths kind of turned their back on all that. Yeah, Johnny Marr might have been mad into all sorts of music but Morrissey just wanted white music by white people for white people and none of those modern synthesizers or rapping or reggae or anything that just coincidentally was linked to people of different skin colours. It's a far cry from 2-Tone.
Everything is multicultural, whether Morrissey likes it or not.Well its this part here...suggesting the smiths music was almost racist because it didn't have an overt influence of black music genres...does everything need to be multi cultural? I don't think so. I love those other genres, but the smiths music was fine without it.
