"You see, we love the perverse and the contrary at Faber." LOL! That's Moz!
I didn't know much about Lee Brackstone, so I Googled. Apologies if all this was common knowledge, it was news to me:
"Loops, Issue Two" -- Edited by Richard King and Lee Brackstone. Co-editor Richard King works for Domino Records and is working on "How Soon Is Now," an overview of the independent music industry, moguls and mischief making.
"Andrew is a comedy writer, performer, director and producer who has made comedies for TV and radio starring Harry Shearer (etc. etc.)... As a drummer he has recorded albums with Morrissey (Viva Hate, Bona Drag, Kill Uncle), Peter Gabriel (Peace Together), My Bloody Valentine (Glider), Bucks Fizz (New Beginnings), Sandie Shaw, Suggs and Chrissie Hynde."
Could this be a letter that was sent to Morrissey a while back and now has been granted permission by Moz himself, maybe hes signed a deal with them and doesnt want a full statement released untill everything is finalised.
We all know he has been writting his autobiography for a while and that something has been written, the story about saddleworth moor, and also there is the rumoured "big news" that is to be revieled in the coming weeks (morrissey was allegedly interviewed at the Urbis in Manchester a few weeks ago)
Well even if it this letter hasn't done a job, what a winner Mr Brackstone is taken the bull by the horns and tried to make something happen for himself and his company. If only there where more like him, Morrissey you need this guy onside, and hey a free Cummins book what the hell give him a call.
I've been on these forums for almost 10 years and never read the word ''contrary'' before. Now I have read it twice in two days. The above quote and being called 'contrary' by Scarlet Ibis yesterday.
I wonder which household has been using their dictionary
