    Morrissey Central “BONFIRE DOUSED” (February 7, 2023)

    This was discussed earlier in the thread. What do you think are the chances of a label in the UK releasing an album whose title track suggests that people in Britain weren't angry enough following an Islamist terror attack in Manchester? Tide turning or not, that is a subject too far for any UK...

    Morrissey Central “BONFIRE DOUSED” (February 7, 2023)

    It wouldn't be the first time people have tried to end his career. Some have been trying since 1992. But this is definitely a significant crisis point for Morrissey. He now either leaves his comfort zone and goes down the self release route - or he faces the possibility of not being able to...

    Very true. The public laundry washing is all a bit Prince Harry. Unfortunately the odds are now growing that Moz may never release another studio album in his lifetime. The labels will run a mile.

    Diversity of opinion and point of view. Something those who praise 'diversity' don't seem to approve of.

    Yes you are right that is what was said. Good luck though getting a UK label to release an album that suggests people should have been more angry about an Islamist terrorist attack in Britain.

    Moz recorded BOT himself didn't he? And then he sold the recordings to Capitol? In that case he may have retained copyright of the material. He would have the option to sign over copyright ownership to Capitol (if he did he is crazy) - or retain copyright ownership himself and simply grant...

    What a shit start to 2023...no new Morrissey album to look forward to any time soon.

    If they bought the album though they now own the music and could sue Morrissey if he recorded it with another label. A contract would normally contain some form of 'release commitment'...

    I hope Moz had a lawyer check whatever contract he signed with Capitol. There should have been a clause in there that if the label decide not to release the album, then it goes back to the artist. Sounds like he has indeed been f***ed over.

    Fiona Dodwell: "Why An Unsigned Morrissey Proves A Lack Of True Diversity In Music" (February 5, 2023)

    I think that may be a bit simplistic in these censorious times. For example, Graham Linehan has found it impossible to get Father Ted The Musical put on, despite its obvious money-making potential. Post-pandemic musicals remain big money-spinners for London theatres. It appears no promoter wants...

    It does seem pretty clear though that just ain't happening. It's either the traditional way of signing with a record label or nothing. And it's looking more and more that it's the latter.

    Partying - or insomnia?

    It is a bit like reading a school essay. And since when is You Have Killed Me about being bullied at school? Sorry, 'rumoured' to be about being bullied at school.

    Page Six Secret Service probe follow-up: emails from Morrissey's manager; meeting took place December 9, 2017 for 30 minutes in NYC (January 18, 2022)

    Interesting point about the interview. He is definitely not at his most articulate. Cry Freedom was released in 1987. Such a great movie. It was over for the South African regime when that movie was released. Art really can change the world. It still took a few years for the regime to dismantle...
