Mark Kozelek talks to the San Francisco Chronicle about his alleged musical inspirations.

"When I heard a guy like Morrissey, who was pouring his heart out in this way that was very real, this clarity and emotion, he gave me hope as a singer.

If he could retell it in terms of a fairy story, it might make sense to children and they might grasp the nobility, tragedy and power of it.
