Morrissey is a popular music icon. The former singer of the influential Manchester band the Smiths is arguably one of the most intriguing and popular, if not polarizing, iconic figures of popular culture.

Specifically the focus is on the subculture of Morrissey and Smiths fandom as a US-Mexican borderland phenomenon. MOZLANDIA exploring the world of Morrissey and his fans from the Midlands to the Borderlands.
