    I am hated for ... loving Morrissey

    Oh, don't do this. The left aren't exactly separating babies from their parents and keeping in concentration camps, or pardoning convicted domestic terrorists. And it isn't the left that is making a completely incompetent ballsup of Brexit. Get a grip on yourself. Leftists aren't murdering...

    "How to treat Morrissey? Stop listening to him" by Stewart Lee - The Guardian

    Why are you asking this? I might write a 1,000 words for a blog about it if you're not careful.

    "How to treat Morrissey? Stop listening to him" by Stewart Lee - The Guardian

    Sure it is, he can't give tickets away, that's why he just finished an 18 month tour averaging 900-1000 tickets a night.

    "How to treat Morrissey? Stop listening to him" by Stewart Lee - The Guardian

    Well, we made to the 19th reply before the predictable bit of shooting the messenger and try to monster the writer. If The Guardian asked at a mosque, I bet quite a lot of people wouldn't even know *who* they were asking about. Morrissey wrote material of great sensitivity and insight many...

    All UK/European gigs postponed due to "logistical circumstances beyond our control" - management

    No. Not kidding you. Morrissey has not played a UK arena tour that large before though March 2015 and December 2006 came near to it. Be speechless all you want : not all his fans can spend £80 a night on a ticket, especially when they saw him four months ago. And, its not just about money...

    All UK/European gigs postponed due to "logistical circumstances beyond our control" - management

    Cor. I can't be bothered to go through 43 pages of hysteria. There are three reasons the tour was cancelled. The tour was always going to be a tough sell. 1. Market Saturation / contracts. He finished the biggest solo tour he's ever done of arenas four months ago. Coming back for a second...

    Love Music Hate Racism by Fiona Dodwell - Tremr

    Freedom of speech means that. It's not called Freedom from consequence. As always, there's an XKCD for this. https://xkcd.com/1357/

    Is this the first UK tour where no shows have sold out?

    The vast majority of, if not all, of the 1991-95 shows sold out. I think the 2002, 2004 shows did as well.

    'This Is Morrissey' details - liner notes by Fiona Dodwell; vinyl release date Aug. 31, 2018

    Lead times for vinyl are much longer than CD's : there are less vinyl planets and higher demand. CD pressing plants have more capacity and much smaller lead times. This compilation is an appalling concept. I thought it was a fan photoshop when I first saw it.

    Manchester Castlefield Bowl (July 7, 8) confirmation, on sale this week - Morrissey Central

    Well, considering Moz is playing here the *exact* same night The Cure / Interpol / Editors / Twilight Sad / Slowdive / Ride etc are playing London - which was announced and sold out six months ago - it's fair to say plenty of people who might have gone to Manchester on the Saturday now have...

    I bet some of you think the lyrics of King Leer are funny.
