    GROWING UP IN THE MANCHESTER MUSIC SCENE - MORRISSEY - Omega Auctions
    Description:
    A postcard sent from a young Steven Morrissey to his good friend Billy Duffy, likely circa 1978, detailing his time visiting his sister in Denver, Colorado. The postcard depicts a typically acerbic take on life 'The kids in Colorado have not a thought beyond running for presidency' and also more than a hint at his status as the great outsider 'I fear i shall never be in the best society'. The postcard is date stamped, though illegible. Folded to centre, otherwise excellent condition.

      I think that letter is the real treasure. Are you bidding?

      Too bad. Our generation, the "rock" generation seems to be divesting itself of many treasures. Soon no one will want them or value them, I suppose.

      There was a time when i found myself in a situation (15 years) where i had plenty of money to spend on treasures which 1. i wanted 2. i thought were a good investment. I bought obsessionally and it was fun (especially outbidding people on Ebay at the end of the auction). I lived in Germany in a big house at the time. When the job folded i had to return to UK with all this stuff which took up alot of room which i felt i lumbered with (and constantly worried about it getting stolen). I managed to offload it at Omega auctions and made a few bob as well. I,m glad i no longer have it and dont regret getting rid of it. It served a purpose in having fun getting it and owning it, i didn't make a great deal which i probably would have if i d held onto it for a few more years but i feel i can more easily do what i want without it.

      Really odd to see Billy knocking around Alderley Edge, his girlfriend has joined the Real Housewives Of Cheshire TV programme so can only assume that's the reason?

      Great letter/postcard - can't imagine why Billy would want to sell this stuff though, it's his history. He's even selling his gold records, guitars, setlists, clothes.

      Are we certain they're real, Amy? Compare the handwriting on the postcard with the postcards we know he wrote or the Mackie letters. Duffy's is much neater. The a's and t's are different. The language and tone sounds like teen Moz, but the writing is completely different.

      Yes, especially that letter! But I think he fell out with Morrissey a long time ago. I don't think he has any kids, so I guess he'd rather things go to his fans.

      Maybe he’s joined a cult ?

      Crykey why do I come here. Reckon you cunt thick tit wackers are so fucking lost. The post card is real because that's how The California Son writes, he doesn't write like a child. That was something some weird foreigner brit manager told him to do when he was in that shitty band the smiths. He had to continue doing it it, just like he has to continue talking with a fake brittish accent to sell merch to foreigners. More evidence that The California Son and his sister were really born in Moz Angeles and are Americans inn nnn nnn n nnn n nnnn nnnnnnnn it.
