Everything here is working against me - chance of getting a ticket in the ballot, the fact that my major assignment is due that weekend, that my first exam is just days afterwards, that I'm a student and getting the money together at short notice for ticket + flights + accommodation is going to be a real ball buster at a time when money is so tight. BUT, holy shit I have to go for it.

Just .... for the love of God Morrissey don't A). cancel. or, B). Announce a show in Melbourne at the last minute right after I have booked everything.
 
So do you think the fact he and Boz being in LA at the same time...and Jesse...and the bass player...etc means they DID record the second half of the Harvest agreement and this world tour plus festivals means its how they're going to promote the album after it drops suddenly Beyonce-style?

Boz was only in the US for a short time and he was out doing DJ gigs. Matt hasn't been in LA and we generally don't see Moz out and about while he's recording.

Also he was dropped from harvest.

Isn't a contract a contract? I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised if we woke up tomorrow morning and there was a new Morrissey album to listen to. I also wouldn't be surprised if the Smiths reformed and a tsunami wiped out Southern California so maybe take my ideas with a grain of salt. :D

TTY is always there to break the latest Morrissey tour news!

(Actually, I typed that as a joke, but sometimes they actually are. But more often than not things come out in dribs and drabs from other sources and TTY comes along a day or so later with the official word.)
Jullia read about this on here, but she'd never admit it. :thumb:

There are many ways you can get out of a contract. The band hasn't been in the same city and he's been out at concerts. No album.

He should drop an album on Soundcloud and make some waves. :D
