Maybe Stephane just couldn't keep the sight up? It's too bad, such a wealth of information. I wonder if it is the case that he doesn't have the time/funds, or whatever, if he would consider transferring it. (I don't even know if that is possible!)
Pale Saints "Mrs. Dolphin" cd
Gary Ogan & Bill Lamb "Portland" Japanese mini lp cd
Stiff Little Fingers "Complete John Peel Sessions" cd
Magnetic Fields "Distant Plastic Trees" Jpn cd
Magnetic Fields "The Wayward Bus" cd, Pop Up
That certainly is odd.
This is a quite a loss to the community. And the most recent snapshot on the Wayback Machine is from last July.
Saddened to read this - what a true loss for the Morrissey-following internet community. I've enjoyed the site since nearly the beginning and appreciated all the time, effort, and taste Stephane brought to it as the site evolved. He has always been top notch in any of my interactions with him. I wish him the best and hope there were no sad circumstances that brought him to his decision.
Cheers, Stephane - thanks so much.
A very Sad Day ...........
Noooo!! That was such a great resource. I loved how it had movie and literature references organized so meticulously. A real loss.
To be finished would be a relief...
What a strange thing to do. Has he lost interest in Morrissey? Has he better things to do? Does he not want us to be able to access the information for some reason? Was he feeling under-appreciated and this is his way of getting some attention? Could the site not handle the traffic of all the people Kewpie incessantly sent there and told to bookmark it? If he's fed up, why not just leave the site there but not update it anymore? So many questions... and I'm not bothered about any of the answers. I never used the site.
He's a nice guy, but that message on the homepage just rubs me the wrong way. Something attention seeking about it.
Anyway, I'm off back to bed.
Death Disco. 1985-present. Goodnight. Thank you.

More likely it's a cost of maintenance issue for the site, or else something personal causing him to re-prioritize his efforts.
At any rate he had a great run.
Wow, I'm in shock. This was the greatest website ever having to do with a musical artist. I used it practically every day for one reason or another. I'd even tell non-Morrissey music fans to look at it just because of how amazing it was. I hope he brings it back. The details on there to help with collecting were so valuable.
NOooooooooooooo I'm genuinely saddened by this news
