Passions Just Like Mine RIP

celibate

Forever Ill
damn, just read it, I understand your choice, but just let all your work flow away
would be a giant gap in the world of Morrissey and The Smiths

I hope someone create at least a mirror site so all the info and work can be used or surf to , for
info on bootlegs/whatever

Thanks for your great share and work in the Smiths and Morrissey carreer, plus the Smiths members and anything they
done after

all the best, and thank you Stephane

[please share me your copy of ' south with Morrissey':lbf:]

Why not rebuild the site as a wiki, and let the community maintain it? A handful of moderators could ensure that it remained accurate.

Re: Passions Just Like Mine RIP

iwas fairly horrified when ifound the PJLM was no more- had to send Stephane my personal thanks- i've used the site a ton over the years and it was this site along with morrissey-solo that helped ignite my passion for Moz in 2001 when iproperly got into his music. iwill truly miss this site (strange to say, but true).

Re: Passions Just Like Mine RIP

I love this site, sad to see it go, but I understand, "moving on" is good
if only I could do the same, and to be honest, more than once I have used it to remember when things happend in my life from 91 on(my 1st show Pauley)
those concert dates for times in my life and correct song lyrics have been of great use to me many at time
thank you Stephane
please keep us appraised on what else you might do
your site has been precious to me...

Additional information:

The Argentinean 12" and cassette single are titled "Rapado", which means "Suedehead" in Spanish.



Artwork information:
Morrissey. The original photo was taken by Geri Caulfield at the London Palladium concert in October 1986.



Etchings on vinyl:
UK 7" and 12": "DREAMS...ARE JUST...DREAMS" / none



Additional release date information:
UK: 27 February 1988



Chart peak information:
UK: 5
USA: (didn't chart)



Promotion:
UK: This single was promoted by the first in a series of promo 12"s (EMI 12POPDJ1618; view in left frame) of different colours for Morrissey's first six singles. This one is slipped inside a blue sleeve and is the only one in the series to be numbered. Some of these promo 12"s included a poster. Copies of the 7" were sent to radio with a press release and a promo sticker on the back. Copies of the cd-single have supposedly also been distributed with a promo sticker on them. Two different one-track promo videos of the title track were also produced, one by Double Vision for the usual networks, and the other by Parlophone for instore play. The video for "Suedehead" was also included on a various artists instore sampler (EMI Instore no. 20).

Argentina: Copies of the "Rapado" 12" have supposedly been distributed for promotion. "Suedehead" was included on two different 6-track various artists promo EPs sent to radio at the time of the single's release. One was numbered DIF010 and the other DIFLP015. A promo LP titled "Imagen De Radio" (EMI 10056) also included the song.

Brazil: A promo 12" (Parlophone 9951077) was printed with "Suedehead" on both sides. However that song was never released as a single in that country. This 12" was used to promote "Viva Hate".

Canada: Gold-stamped copies of the 12" and an edition of the 7" with promo text on the label were used for promotion. Unlike the latter's American counterpart which had the title track on both sides, the Canadian promo 7" was backed by "I Know Very Well How I Got My Name".

France: The sleeve of stock copies of the 7" were stamped for promotion.

Germany: The EEC 7" was sent to radio with a 'fact sheet' in German.

Japan: The 3" cd-single was promoted by an edition with 'SAMPLE' stamped on the cd's inner ring and by a specially pressed promo 7" (PRP-1275). The latter featured "I Know Very Well How I Got My Name" on the b-side and was usually paired with a photocopied press release.

South Africa: One-sided promo 7"s (EMI PS100) of "Suedehead" were printed for promotion of the "Viva Hate" album. "Suedehead" was never released as a single in that country.

USA: Gold-stamped copies of the 12" and a promo 7" (Sire/Reprise, 7-27907-A) were sent to radios to promote this single. The 7" featured the title track on both sides and was slipped inside a generic record company sleeve, with no artwork. Two promo videos were distributed to the usual networks. The first one, dated 24 March 1988, featured only the title track while the other (Warner A57544) featured the "Suedehead" video and videos for 4 songs by the Smiths. A one-track promo cd of "Suedehead" (Sire/Reprise PRO-CD-3013) was also sent to radios in the USA, but this item was used to promote "Viva Hate" and can be viewed on the latter album's page.

Quotes:
In Februry 1988, Morrissey answered journalist Len Brown's question "Given the effect that the break-up of The Smiths has obviously had on you, have you tried to deal with your feelings in any of the tracks on Viva Hate?" with the answer "No I haven't because that would be the next expected thing to do. I don't really want to do that. I suppose, whatever way you look at Viva Hate it quite elegantly expresses the way I felt instantly post-split because as soon as The Smiths broke up I was practically wheeled into a studio to make that record. Whichever way you examine it that is post-Smiths Morrissey. But there are no bitter references to the past." This was printed in Brown's biography "Meetings With Morrissey".

Morrissey, March 1988: "Times are different and my life has moved on since The Smiths in very specific ways, and 'Viva Hate' is in no way the follow-up to 'Strangeways'. So in a sense I do feel that it is the first record."

Morrissey, March 1988, about the title: "It simply suggested itself and had to be. It was absolutely how I felt post-Smiths and the way I continue to feel. That's just the way the world is. I find hate omnipresent and love very difficult to find. Hate makes the world go round."

In an interview given to Nick Kent and published in March 1990 in The Face, Morrissey said of the release of "Viva Hate": "I feel it was more of an event than an achievement. I think the audience was simply relieved that I was still going on with living. That in itself was the celebration of Viva Hate! I've always been fiercely self-critical and... it wasn't perfect. And it wasn't better than Strangeways Here We Come! There's at least six tracks on it that I'd now willingly bury in the nearest patch of soil. And place a large stone on top."

But you do understand the concept of encyclopedias right? They're filled with information you will never use, but they are useful to people now and then. PJLM is an information archive. A virtual encyclopedia on Morrissey.

Why the hate? I don't care about the 'frink' threads on this site but you won't see me hanging around those threads telling people they're wasting their time.

Really, nothappynotsad, why the hate?
