    Hand in glove(s)! Morrissey dons protective mitts as he picks up a loaf of bread amid coronavirus lockdown - Daily Mail

    Has anyone seen Morrissey wearing that cap before? Does it read MARFA? If so, Morrissey must be wearing because the James Dean-starring film Giant was filmed in Marfa, TX. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marfa,_Texas

    The dreadful state of UK ticket sales

    There are still tickets available for the Paris date, hence why there hasn't been a story about it selling out. The venue has 1,913 seats and 38 seated tickets remain available, spread across the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th rows.

    The dreadful state of UK ticket sales

    I wrote the article because the subject matter interests me. I used screen grabs to show how many tickets were remaining. I could see how many seats were remaining for the Leeds gig by looking at the seating map and in my opinion, there was a significant number of unsold tickets...

    The dreadful state of UK ticket sales

    I was responding to a previous poster who said there were no Paris tickets remaining. I posted to show there were tickets remaining. That was my point.

    The dreadful state of UK ticket sales

    I recently wrote a brief exploration of how drastically Morrissey's ticket sale figures have plummeted in the UK, with special attention given to the startlingly low sales for the upcoming Leeds gig. With two weeks to go until the show, huge quantities of seats remain unsold in some of the best...

    Alanis Morissette releases track co-written with ex-Morrissey band member (Michael Farrell)

    Yes, Jesse was in her live band for the tours associated with Jagged Little Pill. That is how he met Angie Hart of the band Frente. Frente was the opening act for a number of those Alanis shows. Jesse and Angie married and formed the band Splendid. Neither that band nor the marriage exist any...

    Alanis Morissette releases track co-written with ex-Morrissey band member (Michael Farrell)

    Alanis Morissette has released Reasons I Drink, the first single from her 9th studio album titled Such Pretty Forks In The Road. It might be of slender interest to Morrissey fans/ex fans but the song was co-written by Alanis with Michael Farrell. Michael Farrell toured with Morrissey and...

    Morrissey Central: "New Morrissey Album" - 'I Am Not A Dog On A Chain' (November 28, 2019)

    We see the return of the duplicitous claim that California Son charted at number 7 in the USA when in fact it debuted at number 95, which was also its highest Billboard 200 chart position. Week two of its release saw it drop out of the Billboard 200 all together.

    The Beatles have 29 albums listed on Spotify, including compilations and deluxe versions. John Lennon has 20 albums on Spotify, including compilations and deluxe versions.

    "California Son" third week in the top 5 in Poland - Morrissey Central

    Can anyone share links that show the California Son chart placements in Poland that this Morrissey Central post reports? I found the official Poland Top 50 albums from the week California Son was released (sales period 24/05/2019 - 30/05/2019) with a chart date of June 6, 2019 and Morrissey is...

    "California Son" drops out of Billboard 200 second week

    Morrissey's album of cover songs, California Son, has dropped out of the Billboard 200 in its second week of release. The collection debuted at #95 on the Billboard 200 chart dated June 8, 2019 but failed to hang onto a top 200 position in the week of June 15. Weekly chart can be seen here...

    "California Son" slips down to number 33 in second week on the UK Official Albums Chart

    The top 50 physical album sales in the USA have been published for the second week of California Son's release and it has not made the top 50 albums. Last week it placed at #7 on this list with just over 5,000 copies sold which resulted in a debut on the overall Billboard 200 of #95. If #7 on...

    Peter Katsis re: Laura Snapes - Morrissey Official FB (4 June, 2019)

    To make the Facebook rants of Morrissey's manager Peter Katsis slightly more palatable, imagine him sitting at a keyboard hammering away with those giant hands while his super cute dog Winston sits on his lap in a mini dog tuxedo. Also if you have no idea who Peter Katsis is but have a passing...

    "USA Chart Position" (#7 Billboard Albums, #3 Vinyl Albums) - Morrissey Central; #95 Billboard 200

    It did well in the UK comparatively when you look at chart placings in the UK but didn't do well when you look at how many physical copies it sold especially in contrast with his other releases. LIHS sold about 30,000 copies first week in the UK and charted at #5 whereas CS sold only 8,340 but...

    "USA Chart Position" (#7 Billboard Albums, #3 Vinyl Albums) - Morrissey Central; #95 Billboard 200

    To be fair, I don't think many record companies could have done much more for this release given all of the factors involved. Whether you think his controversial statements are racially charged and problematic or not, it has become clear that a large number of his historical fans have now opted...

    "USA Chart Position" (#7 Billboard Albums, #3 Vinyl Albums) - Morrissey Central; #95 Billboard 200

    I think the adult-concerned radio stations in the USA focus primarily on classic releases or new and old country, making it more difficult for an older non-country music artist to garner airplay. For instance, Barbra Streisand doesn't get much airplay for her releases in the last two decades in...
