The Queen Is Dead


Morrissey has commented:

"I would like to congratulate the Smiths, and also Stephen Street, and also Rough Trade Records for 30 fantastic years of sales for The Queen Is Dead, which is 30 years old in June. We have always been gagged, of course, but certain recordings rise with time, and The Queen Is Dead and also Meat Is Murder both had the courage to put the fullest meaning of British life into words and music. It was the hope of helping things to evolve, and the mobilized strength of both recordings for 30 years has been fully understood and appreciated by those with sensible passions. Central issues in 2016 England include an urgent need of social justice for animals


as well as an obvious recognition of 'monarchy as anarchy' (therefore, something with no place in a democratic society).


I am sorry that Warner UK or Sire US cannot provide any celebrations for the anniversaries of both recordings, but, perhaps some label bosses have their eye on a tatty OBE, and perhaps others simply have detachable heads. It would not quite be the Smiths if not classically ignored by the dried-out lawns of the establishment. I urged Warner UK to issue a special 'The Queen Is Dead' single release for the first week of June ... but ... brick wall.

Bleeding to death, I therefore have the restless gall to ask of you that, should you have 99 cents/pence, that you purchase 'The Queen Is Dead' track in the final week of May, thus possibly edging it into the corner of everyone's ear in the UK Top 100 - if only to let them know that we are still here and fully aware of the fox-fur on the hall-stand. I am sorry to ask more of you than you have already given, but we all do as well as we can in such ludicrous times. I can only ask.


I am absolutely yours, in pleasant speaking voice, and with good grace."

Morrissey Far East

Morrissey's whispered live dates for the Far East have been pushed back until such a time when there is a new Morrissey recording.

"... by which time the common pigeon will no doubt be facing global extinction ..." Morrissey has said.

The Unimaginable Last Hug


21 December 2015

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.
