Mexicans love Morrissey.

So much so that a group of Mexican artists have come together to pay tribute to the Smiths and their front man, Morrissey. Their band's called Mexrrissey and it's the brainchild of Andy Wood, who's also the director of the London-based Latin music festival La Linea.

He recently joined Alex Cohen on the line to talk about the Mexican love for Morrissey, how the Smith's music translates to Spanish pretty well and how Morrissey feels about the project.
