A letter written by a teenage Morrissey in which he criticises the Sex Pistols' dress sense has resurfaced online. The British singer was an unknown 17 year old when he wrote in to NME magazine in 1976 to critique the punk rockers' scruffy style, insisting they dressed in "jumble sale attire". Morrissey describes seeing the band play at a small venue in Manchester, England and concludes the letter by writing, "I'd love to see them make it. Maybe then they will be able to afford clothes which don't look like they've been slept in." A copy of the letter from the original magazine article has been posted online on LettersofNote.com.
