The Unimaginable Last Hug

The Unimaginable Last Hug

Our South American tour has ended; each night will sustain for eternity. How could this be, now, when most of the audiences weren't even born at the time of the Smiths? This tour was our highest triumph, and please believe me, we passionately cherish all of the many thousands who turned up, called out, jumped up, and refused to leave.

The most difficult list to compile, but:

1. Lima (Peru) Parque De La Exposicion
2. Asuncion (Paraguay) Yacht Y Golf Club
3. Montevideo (Uruguay) Teatro De Verano
4. Brasilia (Brazil) Net Live
5. Buenos Aires (Argentina) Luna Park
6. Sao Paulo (Brazil) Citibank Hall
7. Sao Paulo (Brazil) Teatro Renault
8. Buenos Aires (Argentina) Teatro Opera Allianz
9. Santiago (Chile) Movistar Arena
10. Quito (Ecuador) Teatro Nacional Casa De La Cultura
11. Santiago (Chile) Primavera Fauna
12. Rio (Brazil) Citibank Hall

although, admittedly, the excitement level between 1 and 12 consists only of the most finely split hairs. I am most proud to see how the song 'World peace is none of your business' has struck such strong emotion in people across the world. But the music industry, of course, no longer connects with real people, and I am sorry that things are the way they are ... the slightest dross meriting arms full of awards bought for them by their labels. It is an amputation, and we feel it with great sadness. The major labels are urged to turn it all into dust, and YOU are what they dare not look at.

Thank you, South America! Your love is gratefully accepted and returned tenfold.

Morrissey y Malvinas

Morrissey In Argentina



Political hope died with the wrong one among many wrong ones; that thug of ego overload known as Margaret Thatcher.  Proudly wearing the badge of the brute, thug Thatcher murdered Argentinian boys and gave the world the thumbs up.  Atrocity has some validation if ownership is the final result, and to hell with intellect!  Ensconced on her own throne, thug Thatcher's glut of excess set almost every major British city alight in flames.  But that wasn't enough. Dressed in combat gear (!) the show-'em-all pilot blew up Argentina's Belgrano even though it posed no threat to British troops; youth too soon gone.  England wondered how badly it had behaved in order to deserve Margaret Thatcher, who invented a civilization of hate.  Legless war heroes still support Thatcher, for if they did not, they would be forced to face the truth of their lives: that their limbs were used to fuel her ego.  
The Malvinas belong to the people of Argentina, not least of all because they are right here, in the windily warm Argentinian air.  The Malvinas are not three miles west of Knightsbridge.  Thatcher the destroyer did not care whether British or Argentinian lives were lost, and it is only her menu of horrors that ensure her legacy.  No Thatcher monument would ever stand on British soil, for it would be felled in an instant as a symbol of poisoned terror.  However, world peace is none of your business.

Plea to Peru


15 December 2015

Plea to Peru

As the world changes and progresses in a thousand positive ways, the torture of bulls continues in Peru. It is termed bullfighting even though no fight is possible: the bull has no defense against a large parade of miserably gleeful 'bullfighters', their superiority complex so full of airs and graces, yet unable to face the bull without a slew of weaponry and support. Bull torture has no forgiveness. Diabolically contrived, the 'bullfight' is a Peruvian tradition, as was black slavery. It is an old imperial formula that still exists only in pursuit of the stupidity of money. No matter how much blood and death there is in the bullring ... there can never be enough.
After the pathetic spectacle, the articulate animal is split open from neck to belly and emptied out. In 2015!? In civil Peru!? Such an ancient ache shreds Peruvian society, and drops any civilization low on the totem pole.
Duty to the human soul demands the abolition of this savagery. Please blast Pedro Cateriano with a call for change, with social justice for animals at any cost.
The world has moved on, and Peru must also. Otherwise, what is the point of anything? Must savagery always have the final word? Bulls have no rights simply because they cannot speak Spanish?
Why don't the bullfighters simply fight one another ... to the death?

Photograph below shows Peruvian bull-torturer Andres Roca Rey engaging in bloodlust. Oh, Andres, just LOOK at yourself ... is this all that your life is for? Is this all that your heart and soul are worth?

Photograph below of Jesse Tobias with two audience members after Morrissey's 9th December show at the Opera Theater. Many rows of seats were smashed during the show, and the band described it as one of the best of their lives.
Meanwhile, McDonna, wearing a dead animal on her head, sings out-of-tune on the streets of Paris to 60 people ... who offer fake applause ... and this rotates on the UK television news as worthy of national interest.  The world is indeed full of crashing bores ...

As the world begins to save itself ...


9 December 2015

​As the world begins to save itself ...

In the UK sales of processed animal flesh have suddenly fallen by 16%. This is a 16% rise in consumers saying No to cancer and the Holocaust of prison camp abattoirs. We will now see the military jaws of animal agriculturalists increase their happy-family TV commercials as laughing parents feed their kids "ham" (ass) in the guise of protein. But none of these commercials will tell you of the final agonies of the animals that you eat ... for if you knew, if you knew, you could not bear to bear any more savagery.
