    Hello! Little story today from The Star newspaper in Sheffield relating to our man Morrissey... who wanted top quality, Steel City-made razors couriering to him in LA at short notice!

    Hair necessity for smooth operator - The Star


    Heaven knows I need a shave now

    WHAT do you do when Morrissey calls at three in the morning when you’re on holiday in France and says he must have two razors by next day?

    If you’re anyone but Neil Ernst Edwin Jagger you smile, turn over and hope you can still remember your bizarre dream in the morning.

    But if you ARE the man behind Edwin Jagger you get on the phone to Sheffield and arrange for two razors to be couriered to the former Smiths front man.

    Even though he’s in Los Angeles.

    That’s what actually happened to Edwin a few years ago and though it was, er, a bit of a close shave, they did it.

    “We were staying in a caravan in France and I got this call at two or three o’clock in the morning from someone in California to say he needed two of our razors sent to him for Morrissey of all people in Los Angeles by the next day.

    “It was bit of an odd one but we did it. We got them to him from Sheffield by next morning Los Angeles time,” added Edwin.

      Actually Jagger only have six badgers currently employed and they are correctly described as a sustainable resource as they are (obviously) shaved for their hair, not killed. The badgers are very well remunerated and their contract includes a shampoo and Set. So few careers these days include free accomodation.

      Yeah, I can well imagine that this is the kind of information that he'd prefer was kept hidden from public view. I somehow think he'll be shopping for grooming products elsewhere from now on.

      Why 2 razors? One for the face, one for the legs?

      "To me there's something dramatically ugly about a person who can wear a dress for £6,000 when at the same time there are people who can't afford to eat. When she puts on that dress for £6,000 the statement she is making to the nation is: "I am the fantastically gifted royalty, and you are the snivelling peasants." Morrissey on himself... sorry, Princess Diana

      It's funny how idiots come to a morrissey fan site, only to complain and taunt the man which the site is dedicated to. I think a lot of you idiots need to take a step back and change things in your own life, rather than look at morrissey's doings and undoings through a microscope. It's obvious he is a success and will continue to be a success whether or not he loses a few of you along the way, myself included. I don't agree with absolutely everything he stands for, but I also do not condemn him. Take this with a grain of salt if it makes it taste better, he doesn't owe you anything.

      I think you will find a lot of the comments are light hearted banter. Don't read too much into them. Are you Kewpie in disguise?
