Haven't felt the need to use one of these :guitar: before but
If I wasn't limited to 8 you'd have a lot more of them.
Nice. Thank you very much :guitar::thumb:

Well, you're just a moron irregular aren't you?

What brought that on? Saying 'thank you' to the person who shared all of this?

Let's have more peace, love and harmony.



Thanks Motorways, I just burned the CD to listen to it in my stereo. It's nice to have that nervousness again everytime, I bought a Smiths or Morrissey cd back in the nineties. Maybe now that it is in a bootleg M&M will allow to release one of these tracks officially. After revelation bootleg came out, Moz soon released some of the tracks on the Bona Drag reissue. I hope it happens that way again. Ok, I am ready to listen now...bye and endless gratitude to Motorways again!!

Stone me!
Thank you for posting. Within a couple of years of the Morrissey demo's being leaked we got some official releases on the Bona Drag reissue. Here's hoping this lights a fire under the backside of the necessary people for the same thing to happen with the Smiths.
