Jobriath was an openly gay NYC glam-rock star who disappeared after two or three albums. He was heavily hyped as a sort of American counterpart to David Bowie but his Ziggy-like albums flopped and are only remembered today as minor cult favorites. He died, IIRC, of AIDS. There's a character in Phantom Of The Paradise (1974) based off of him.
Smoking Popes were a 90s alt/punk-pop band whose lead singer crooned a bit like Morrissey. To be fair, I've only heard one song by them, a song called "Need You Around" that plays over the end credits of Clueless.
Morrissey seems to be a huge fan of classic NYC arty stuff (and classic decadent cult albums)....wonder what he thought of Sonic Youth? (Did he ever comment on Kurt Cobain doing that vocal impression of him on British TV that one time?)
