• Unseen pre-Smiths Morrissey photobooth photos on eBay

    I thought these were definitely worth posting about for those who don't regularly scour eBay for Morrissey-related items...

    They're currently up for auction on ebay (links here, here and here) - at a starting bid of 300 each, they're definitely out of my price range, but at least the seller has provided some nice preview images for us to fawn over a bit.

      As an educated guess I imagine these originally came via babylon books when they were given them to use on the cover of either the dolls or dean book. Else they are from Moz's mum.

      I don't get why this guy ever thought he was ugly. So odd.

      I hope his family has the sense to buy them back.

      I would be curious to know what the button on his lapel in the top photo says.

      Perhaps "The Cramps"?

      Of course! That would make tons of sense. Thanks for pointing it out.

      I'm wondering if these belong/belonged to Robert Mackie?

      According to the original seller (since these same photos were very briefly listed by someone else on eBay back in January, only for the auction to be removed after a day), they belonged to a friend of theirs who had been a member of the New York Dolls fan club in the mid-70s. Who that might have been, and how they came to acquire the photos though, I have no idea...

      Morrissey looks gorgeous as usual, but he does look different in the third photograph. I'm not sure I would have ever guessed it was him. Oh how I dearly love this charming man.

      They do look to be pictures for a pen pal letter, since he seems to have "dolled" himself up in these photos.

      I crack myself up.
