Late last year, my dear friend Jennifer Moon Kelly lost a long battle with colon cancer. Days before she passed, she got to meet our hero, Morrissey. He was a true gentleman and treated her with kindness and love.
A week later, he spoke of her passing and dedicated “One of Our Own” to her at the same venue where she saw him for the last time. Part of his dedication was used for the intro to this mix.

Morrissey, Moon, this is for you. https://www.mixcloud.com/jeremymonsayac/morrisseymoon-tribute-vol-1/



If you enjoy this mix, please consider donating to her favorite charity, the WunderGlo Foundation, which is dedicated to eradicating colon cancer, via the link below, or donate to your favorite charity.

HMV Responds to Morrissey’s “Queen Is Dead” Singles Sales Complaints - Pitchfork
By Jazz Monroe, June 20th.

Retailer says they wanted to “give genuine fans as much chance as possible to buy a copy”

HMV has responded to Morrissey’s Facebook post accusing the store of trying to “freeze sales” of the Smiths’ “The Queen Is Dead” single reissue. Morrissey complained Saturday that the store was limiting the 7" and 12" singles’ sales to one-per-customer. (He encouraged fans to wear false noses, clip-on ears, nurse outfits, stilts, or “variable wigs” to fool cashiers.) In a statement to Pitchfork, HMV says they wanted to “give genuine fans as much chance as possible to buy a copy” of the limited-edition single, and that, by Saturday, it had nearly sold out anyway. Read their full statement below.
