    Morrissey would ask that people do not buy any merchandise by the company Bravado, whether retail or online. Bravado do not have any legal right to sell Morrissey t-shirts, etc, but are doing so despite legal warnings that they must stop. Bravado do not account to Morrissey, and therefore keep 100% profit for themselves. Once again, Morrissey asks that Bravado be shunned by worldwide customers.

    I had never heard of them before, and now I've been on their website and searched around, and if I was inclined to buy that kind of merchandise then I'd have a new avenue to pursue. Just like the "fuck Morrissey solo" incident, and the thing about the fake blog, I can't see how Morrissey can think that giving these guys publicity will help his cause...

    Fake blog? I thought Morrissey only denied it so many times precisely to give it publicity. ;)

    Me too. I didn't know anything about them. They're new to me. But they have some good items. Isn't it a temptation?

    1. You DON'T go around asking people to shun things.

    2. I wonder how many things Morrissey has gotten away with he doesn't have the legal right to.

    3. BRAvado. Their shirt is probably just GREAT, but I guess it's all about the money in the end. That's what this sounds like.

    Re: Bravado

    This was the same company that sold t shirts online during the 2009 tours, it's all the old tour stock no big deal surely, old t shirts and mp3 albums is that a huge problem? how much business can they be doing, selling shirts from a 3 year old tour?

    This sounds reminiscent of the Hollywood Bowl DVD statement ,"Morrissey won't make a penny out of it so don't buy it". Hard to avoid a cynical response when there appears to be no other motivation than concerns of profit. If Morrissey wasn't a multi-millionaire then perhaps I could sympathise, but the reality dictates a feeling of one's intelligence being insulted at best.

    I really hope he's talking in code.

    You know how a dog takes a shit and as the poop leaves his butt it passes his scent glands which are located near his anus and a fine layer of scent is left on the shit? Then another dog walks up to the poop later on in the day and it looks like he's sniffing a pile of poop but really he's detecting the scent of the dog who left it?

    Well I think of solo as a lot of shit that one can use their innate dog skills to detect the scent of the dog who left it, it;s like finding gold in a pile of shit. If this post on TTY isn't actually a thinly veiled communikay of gold hidden in the stinky shit of Morrissey being a money-grubbing twat, I will be sad.

    Whether it's a simile, metaphor or synonym, I think the message was direct and without any dog odour.
    He used to use semaphore but gave up after the flags were confiscated for political reasons.
