Many apologies for the delay of 1985.


It's getting harder to select photos because of more choices.

The suggestion will be open 7-10 days then a poll will be posted.


The rule:

Each user can nominate 5 photos of Morrissey (or The Smiths) taken / published in widely available commertial publications in 1984.
It means no photos from fanzines, I'm afraid.

I'd like you to 3 things in mind to when you select photos:

- Artistic
- Aesthetic
- Iconic

Also many thanks to Comtesse who runs excellent Smiths presumably forever ill and The Arcane Old Wardrobe where you can search / check the year of the photos from photo gallery.


The polls cover 1983-2009 i.e. 26 years, I decided to exclude photos taken by amateur photographers, Smiths / Morrissey single and album sleeves which don't have a photo of Morrissey.


Basically the photos get most suggestions are selected for 1985 poll.
Maximum 15 photos for each poll because vBulletin software does not allow more than 15 poll options.

I suggest you to visit The Arcane Old Wardrobe's photo gallery and It May All Ends Tomorrow before you submit your 5 favourites in here.

It's simply impossible to please everyone, if you don't agree with the rules, I'd be very appreciate to have some constructive suggestions.

1983

1984


I made a mistake to set an early deadline of 1983 poll. Rest of the polls will be left open for next 12 months.

Thank you very much for your help. :)

All my books are instorage to protect them from builders at the moment... so, from the depths of foreverill.com

Mirror Mirror on the wall


Fake


What's for dinner


Poster - admit it we all had this on our walls at some stage


NME Cover


Possibly not this one... but one of the shots from Oxford Road - classic.


Oh... and don't forget this one :) Does it count as 1985?


Sorry for suggesting 7...

I guess there were only 5 iconic sessions in this year - all of these are alternate shots from 5 of the 6 sessions I picked!

btw - right click on the image you want to feature, click 'copy image location'. Back to your message, click the icon above the text box that looks like a picture of a mountain range and click paste - the weblink to the photo will be pasted and will be included in your post :)

Is it too late to nominate some pics? I've been away from solo for awhile and didn't realize this was going on! Here are the images that immediately sprung to my mind:

2 of them were also published in the Dutch Vinyl magazine, with an article
which was about their just released album 'Meat is Murder'

the lying on the poster one if top, the one under is done in the same shoot,
as a pic where fake is written on Morrissey's body, can remeber where,
thought the neck, but that one is also from the same shot as 2 Comtesse
posted

nice, takes me back to 25 years ago, 24 maybe :blushing:

I agree with rainfallshard - the picture was taken in 1985, so why is it being saved for 1986:crazy:

When you are banned, the next time you go to post a message, you get a message telling you that you are banned, and the reason (funny, my reason wasn't....''you caught Kewpie messing with your thread titles, sending PM's to other members and ignoring requests to stop posting about you'', therefore you are banned:D.)

I am banned for a year, but each time I return, which is often:thumb:, my ban gets extended. I think it is now for life. Although I keep returning:lbf::guitar:

no drowning but waving, mr Gatenby

shame a publisher of 2 books about Morrissey's Manchester and London
life , and the places he used in lyrics, videoshots,sleeves, etc

plus yer short to sources

and just because of 1 moderator whose behaviour of moderation, of
actions in forums have been dicussed and flamed to death

I hope David gives you a second chance, with the message not to
diss the moderator in public/words.

or other moderators will reconsider

thx fot the info

see ya around:lbf:
