Hi have found two tapes that I was given years ago that have been forgotten in a box. One contains 'We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful' 'You're The One For Me Fatty' 'National Front Disco' and 'Certain People I Know' it is a TDK 90 cassette with 'Morrissey Tracks 23/02/92 written on it. To my untrained ears it sounds like the album tracks but with drum 'click ins' and rough slightly extended (by a few seconds) endings.

The other is just entitled 'Morrissey Tunes - Demo's 1' in the same handwriting and is undated. This appears to contain the instrumental backing track of an whole album, but maybe it is just a set list but as I am not all that knowledgeable on Morrissey I have yet to identify the songs.

Have these sort of items ever come up for sale and would they be of interest to collectors?

I'd like everyone to know about a Smiths tribute show featuring The
Fake Smiths, a 5-piece Smiths cover band.

The show is this Friday, March 2nd, at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville TN.

There will be two opening acts also playing Smiths and Morrissey songs.

another interview emerged -from another BRAZILIAN newspaper
thanks to julie and meg

Morrissey defende o poder das pessoas e ataca os políticos, a família real inglesa e a imprensa - Diverta-se

Translation via Google thanks to Meg's wonderful FB page: "Mozzerians of the world, unite and take over":

- You've said several times you did not expect to live long enough to re-record a record. It is a great paradox of not having a contract, as it has a very strong fan base. As a composer, don't you feel like writing again, because there are options that are independent of a label?

M: ''I wrote two albums that will not be released by any label. I have 17 years. Nobody knows what to do with me. Yes, I've a huge fan base in many, many countries....
