The Guardian and the Royal Court theatre have put together something called Off the Page, which is a collection of six filmed "microplays". The project brings together journalists, playwrights and directors to create responses to issues in six key areas of their coverage: food, music, fashion, sport, education and politics. The next microplay, on the subject of sport, will be online on 24 November.
In Off The Page #2, entitled "Groove Is in the Heart", a film set in 1993 and 2014, you can clearly see The Smiths' Salford Lads' Club photo (from The Queen is Dead) ... and if you look really hard, you can also see "How Soon is Now?" and "What Difference Does It Make?" single artwork in the background.
You can watch the film on YouTube (I cannot get the native Guardian flash player to work).
The Guardian described the feature as:
Ruby Ashbourne Serkis and Tobias Menzies star in a microplay written by Robin French and directed by Bijan Sheibani, after a conversation with John Harris. Groove Is in the Heart is the second in a series of collaborations between the Royal Court and the Guardian.

"Oh here is your audience now, and they're screaming: get off the stage..." - Morrissey.
I wasn't there, but apparently a lot of disappointed fans at the Morrissey at Club Stodola in Warsaw, Poland, on November 19th. Morrissey walked off stage after only 25 minutes. The official Live Nation statement reads "one of the spectators standing close to the scene said extremely offensive and chauvinistic words at the artist. The situation had forced the artist to leave the scene."
From what I've read online, they were insults from a fan in the audience, regarding cancer(?)
