Sir Terry Wogan, RIP
31 January 2016

Sir Terry Wogan, RIP
Time is not as it was. I only met Terry Wogan once, and he approached me (which makes all the difference), and was as genuine and charming as the entire world, today, is saying that he was. So very witty, yet never hurtful ... razor-sharp yet respectful - and, incredibly, one of the few radio DJs with no qualms about playing the Smiths or Morrissey. I am thankful to him.

David Bowie R.I.P.

I'm so sorry. Major loss to the world in many fields.

Mr Davie Bowie has died - http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/david-bowie-dead-legendary-artist-854364

Due to Morrissey's involvement with Bowie, I think this deserves its own thread. No one escapes, I suppose, but he lives on in a unique legacy at least.



And this, which used to show the actual shared performance of Cosmic Dancer, when Morrissey supported Bowie on tour:

Morrissey's cover of Bowie's song, Drive In Saturday, with a David mention:


Nice piece by The Guardian - http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jan/11/my-david-bowie-alive-forever
Lots more incoming too - http://www.theguardian.com/music/davidbowie - including the story of one presenter who announced the death of David Cameron today instead! - http://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/jan/11/radio-presenter-david-cameron-david-bowie

And a 1987 Irish video interview from when he played Slane that year, showing his thoughtful bright personality - http://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/jan/11/radio-presenter-david-cameron-david-bowie

Mr Reynolds, a Prince among men!

A thread for us all to thank Mr Reynolds, I alluded to him in my recent thread on the leaks and demos, but since he has now acknowledged himself as provider of at least some of the recent Demos I think it's high time we doffed our caps to him!!!

He is a true gentleman, whose contribution should never be misunderestimated!!!

Can I point out he has a great thread of Morrissey covers on this site too! I believe only part three is available as of now, please catch it before it is gone!

Mr Reynolds I salute you wiith enormous respect!

Morrissey Solo and Smiths Demos Leaked...

Posted by Reggie Peppery (Members) at Tue 29 Dec 2015, 18:24:07. 10 comments

OK nobody else is mentioning but over at Solo a number of Smiths and Solo Morrissey demos have been leaked, most notably Nobody Loves Us, Unloveable and Never Had No One Ever...amongst the 9 in total...

Before I go any further i would like to say thanks to those who shared, Solow is a miserable excuse for a fansite, but still throws up gems from time-to-time which is why I call by, but never participate.


My goodness me, who knows what's coming next??? I hope its the version of 'Paint a Vulgar Picture' with the alternate lyrics!

Reggie

I haven't linked to Morrissey Solo or Uncleskinny or Michaels Bones pages, but just go to news page at Solo and you'll find out for you selves...

From Hipster Discos Page....




And a big thumbs up to our very kind friend ;-)

Happy Christ-Moz!

The Unimaginable Last Hug
21 December 2015

​The Unimaginable Last Hug​

Our South American tour has ended; each night will sustain for eternity. How could this be, now, when most of the audiences weren't even born at the time of the Smiths? This tour was our highest triumph, and please believe me, we passionately cherish all of the many thousands who turned up, called out, jumped up, and refused to leave.

The most difficult list to compile, but:

1. Lima ​(Peru) Parque De La Exposicion
2. Asuncion ​(Paraguay) Yacht Y Golf Club
3. Montevideo ​(Uruguay) Teatro De Verano
4. Brasilia ​(Brazil) Net Live
5. Buenos Aires ​(Argentina) Luna Park
6. Sao Paulo ​(Brazil) Citibank Hall
7. Sao Paulo ​(Brazil) Teatro Renault
8. Buenos Aires ​(Argentina) Teatro Opera Allianz
9. Santiago ​(Chile) Movistar Arena
10. Quito ​(Ecuador) Teatro Nacional Casa De La Cultura
11. Santiago ​(Chile) Primavera Fauna
12. Rio ​(Brazil) Citibank Hall

although, admittedly, the excitement level between 1 and 12 consists only of the most finely split hairs. I am most proud to see how the song 'World peace is none of your business' has struck such strong emotion in people across the world. But the music industry, of course, no longer connects with real people, and I am sorry that things are the way they are ... the slightest dross meriting arms full of awards bought for them by their labels. It is an amputation, and we feel it with great sadness. The major labels are urged to turn it all into dust, and YOU are what they dare not look at.

Thank you, South America! Your love is gratefully accepted and returned tenfold.

TTY; Morrissey on The Malvinas & Thatcher

Morrissey y Malvinas

Morrissey y Malvinas

Posted Image

Political hope died with the wrong one among many wrong ones; that thug of ego overload known as Margaret Thatcher. Proudly wearing the badge of the brute, thug Thatcher murdered Argentinian boys and gave the world the thumbs up. Atrocity has some validation if ownership is the final result, and to hell with intellect! Ensconced on her own throne, thug Thatcher's glut of excess set almost every major British city alight in flames. But that wasn't enough. Dressed in combat gear (!) the show-'em-all pilot blew up Argentina's Belgrano even though it posed no threat to British troops; youth too soon gone. England wondered how badly it had behaved in order to deserve Margaret Thatcher, who invented a civilization of hate. Legless war heroes still support Thatcher, for if they did not, they would be forced to face the truth of their lives: that their limbs were used to fuel her ego.

The Malvinas belong to the people of Argentina, not least of all because they are right here, in the windily warm Argentinian air. The Malvinas are not three miles west of Knightsbridge. Thatcher the destroyer did not care whether British or Argentinian lives were lost, and it is only her menu of horrors that ensure her legacy. No Thatcher monument would ever stand on British soil, for it would be felled in an instant as a symbol of poisoned terror. However, world peace is none of your business.

As the world begins to save itself ...
In the UK sales of processed animal flesh have suddenly fallen by 16%. This is a 16% rise in consumers saying No to cancer and the Holocaust of prison camp abattoirs. We will now see the military jaws of animal agriculturalists increase their happy-family TV commercials as laughing parents feed their kids "ham" (ass) in the guise of protein. But none of these commercials will tell you of the final agonies of the animals that you eat ... for if you knew, if you knew, you could not bear to bear any more savagery.

morrissey change concert place in Perú

Posted by blitzkid (Members) at Mon 7 Dec 2015, 05:02:33. 6 comments

Morrissey have changed the place were his concert was supposed to take place this 19 ( jardines del parque de la exposicion) for one that only have the half of capacity (anfiteatro del parque de la exposicion) , the company in charge of Moz concert in Perú have public announce this and say this is the result of a logistic problem.

Personally i think this is because Morrissey havent sold even the half of tickets. the public rejection may be for the cancellation of his last concert in 2013.


I would like to know what anyone esle thinks about it.

Dispute between Morrissey & Universal Music

Posted by mammaof3 (Mods) at Thu 26 Nov 2015, 06:54:04. 4 comments

Since this seems to be an ongoing dispute, it deserves its own thread:

Universal Music, London
19 November 2015

Universal Music, London

David Joseph at Universal Music in London has refused the request made by Morrissey and the band to re-issue 'I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris' as a loving tribute to the lives lost in the Paris atrocities. David Joseph is instead arranging his own tribute to Paris utilizing his current crop of Universal artists.
The photograph below is Morrissey singing 'I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris' to an audience of 12,000 in Chile last week.

Universal Music

Universal Music (London) have denied refusing to re-issue Morrissey's I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris in support of the victims of the recent Paris atrocities.
Morrissey is in possession of a letter from John Reid at Russells (London) in which it is clearly stated that David Joseph of Universal Music (London) has no interest in re-issuing I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris, but has instead planned his own tribute to the Paris victims for December which will only involve current Universal bands.
Universal Music has claimed to be "hurt" by the suggestion that such a letter exists.
The letter can be freely made available to anyone who wishes to read it.

Dear David,


My name is Boz Boorer and I represent all of the musicians who played
on I'M THROWING MY ARMS AROUND PARIS (Morrissey).

We are shocked that you have made no move this week to promote the
above song (download/special 7-inch/special CD) to support the people
of Paris. Any other artist would be number 1 with this song RIGHT NOW.

Why are you doing nothing? There is no other song in modern music that
aptly supports the people of Paris.

Dear Boz

Thank you for copying your email to me.

I think we all know that this would be an appropriate and compelling gesture.

I spoke with David Joseph today. His position is that owing to Universal having a very close connection to the events, much as they see your point, they are not intending to release any records in response to the tragic events of last Friday. They feel it is too raw for them given the death of one of their staff members and instead they are going to show support and solidarity in other ways, including concerts in Paris later this year by some of their artists.

However, I believe that Universal would licence the song back for eg a release for proceeds to relevant charities (which I assume would be the plan). In short there may be a possibility here but it would have to be a release via a third party. Personally I think there could be a very forceful statement to be made. It will of course require M's input. Have you discussed this with him - I assume so.

If you want me to pursue this, please let me know. Time inevitably is of the essence.

Yours sincerely

John
