Guardian has been refused copy of "California Son" for review

@guardianmusic
Might be tricky to review the new Morrissey album. Been refused a copy because we wrote this piece about him. "Afraid management are not keen to provide advance music to the Guardian for this release".

Morrissey is not an independent artist, he has a contract with BMG. Surely he has artistic freedom and he is free to choose which songs he sings live, which pin he wants to wear, how he wants to get dressed... But I am sure that BMG would not avoid sending an album for review to the Guardian if they believed that it's a good idea financially: they are not a charity created to finance and satisfy Morrissey.

I would say that if an album was denied, it is because nobody thought that it was going to help to promote the album, but actually the opposite.

If he was a true independent artist (i.e, self-produced and self-promoted albums, then maybe I would consider your idea... But I really doubt that BMG would be OK about not sending albums to review if they believed that such thing would increase the sales).

Or maybe clever publicity/marketing on their part to deny the ‘hallowed’ Guardian the privilege.
 

Oh my

Enough! or Too much

If the boss of BMG was Malcolm McLaren or Tony Wilson, then maybe...
But I assume they behave as more conventional businessmen.
I.e, I assume that if Morrissey decided that he doesn't want to sell records in Canada because of the seals... BMG would tell him that he can avoid playing in Canada, but that BMG won't stop selling albums there.

you go to their offices and they have cups everywhere like Church to drop coins in them.:censored:

have one of the employees go rob a copy, place is full of delinquents and pick pockets.:bow:

sorry but Guardian sucks :elephant: :baseball::baseball:
:lbf:
...the f*** would you know about whether The Guardian sucks or not, clown-shoes? You’re incapable of basic comprehension or stringing a simple sentence together.

Unless there’s an emoji edition, you’ve never even read it, ya daft wee twat. ;)

What if they just think that in today’s day and age it doesn’t matter that much either way

I won't have a bad word said against my beloved Bob!
What about a stream of them?

He's a bloated blob of a hack with no taste or social graces.

I mean, I appreciate the bravery of cosplaying as Jo Brand, but...
