    Using Passions Just Like Mine as a reference, I put together a tally of all of the shows Morrissey has announced versus played since 1988.

    ALO! (Serbian tabloid) mentions skin cancer rumor

    Re: Skin cancer rumour Without even clicking the link... What does endlessly speculating about what illnesses Morrissey may or may not have accomplish? Nothing. If he wants to divulge anything, he will. Otherwise, it's all just people talking to make themselves feel like they know things they...

    Morrissey statement on Cat & Fiddle closing

    Post from Morrissey on True To You: The earth dies screaming - 23 October 2014 A large part of me dies at news that the pillowy bosom of the Cat And Fiddle is to close down on December 15th, making the universe all wrong. A beacon of light will soon be a headstone, and where...

    The Smiths' very first press release from Rough Trade - @vivahate72

    "The sexes have allowed themselves to be too different." Morrissey is nothing if not consistent! Sometimes I forget how very, very young three of them were at the time.

    'Where's Morrissey?'

    I came across this clipping from 1997 while cleaning out a closet today. No memory of where it's from (NME, maybe?), but in light of all the recent discussion about chart positions, I thought I'd share. The more things change, etc., etc.
