‘Dying’ Morrissey, The Sickliest Musician In The World, Cancels Tour



\IF you work in the music industry, or know someone who works in the biz, you’ll inevitably have hundreds of anecdotes about Morrissey’s behaviour, all them which will result in some kind of libel from the longest face in music.

However, it seems that Moz doesn’t mind making accusations about other people at all, which he did while cancelling all his dates on his American tour.

Morrissey postponed dates in Atlanta, Baltimore and Washington, but how now sacked off the rest of his schedule because he’s a bit poorly.

Morrissey Doesn’t Know Anyone… Who Would Like A Reunion of The Smiths

morrissey reunion


MORRISSEY, quite possibly the most tedious popstar ever created, is being all contrary again, giving withering looks and claiming that he doesn’t know a soul who wants a Smiths reunion.

Maybe that’s true because, in actual fact, he doesn’t have any friends or indeed, is surrounded solely by sycophants.

In an interview with Billboard, he said:

“I don’t know a single person who wants a Smiths reunion! But, no, there aren’t any bands I like to see again because your memory of them is how they were in their prime or at their best or at their most desperate, and you look to them to be someone that they no longer are.”

Morrissey To Release New Albums – Everyone Awaits The Beef

FOR a vegetarian, Morrissey doesn’t half thrive on beef. Every time he has something to plug, like a second division rapper, he gets out his broadsword and starts thrashing away at anything popular or generally, whatever cross that brain of his.

And now, Moz has inked a deal for his new solo album, with Capitol/Harvest Records looking mediocre sales in the second half of 2014, mainly from the few who use the True To You online fanzine.

Morrissey Delivers To Deadline: Cilla Black And Jamie Oliver Eat Babies And The Meat Eating Queen Is Like A Paedo

MISERABILIST MORRISSEY has been been talking to fans. A few highlights to follow:


On Meat

If you have access to You Tube, you should click on to what is called The video the meat industry doesn’t want you to see. If this doesn’t affect you in a moral sense then you’re probably granite. I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder. If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away. Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you “Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,” well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers

Morrissey Is Writing Books Because No-One Likes His Records Anymore


FANS of The Smiths, and in particular Morrissey, are a weirdly devoted bunch. Their fervour isn’t matched by the output they receive from the Grand Miserablist.

The Smiths, of course, deserve their place in the annals of popular music simply for popularising an outcast spirit of disenfranchisement. They turned it into an artform and teenagers the world over fell for it, hook, line and sinker. Their records, objectively, weren’t great for the most part… but like The Clash or The Doors, it is what The Smiths stood for which made them so loved.

PETA – The Charity For People Who Fantasise About Humans Burning


A PETA press release received actually says this:

“In 2009, Morrissey made international headlines when he walked off stage at a US music festival, stating that he hoped the ‘burning flesh’ he smelled was human… So it was only fitting that he was named PETA’s Person of the Year in 2011.”

Morrissey loves This Charming Charlie: Peanuts does The Smiths


MORRISSEY may hate meat, but he doesn’t hate Peanuts. The professional pathos peddler has come out in support of Tumblr, ThisCharmingCharlie, saying that he’s “delighted and flattered” by reworkings of the Snoopy-starring comic strips that feature lyrics by his former band The Smiths.

In a statement released to fansite True To You, the singer swatted away claims that he had anything to do with record label attempts to take down the site.


“Morrissey would like to stress that he has not been consulted over any takedown request to remove the Tumblr blog named ‘This Charming Charlie’,” the message read.

“Morrissey is represented by Warner-Chappell Publishing, and not Universal Music Publishing, (who have allegedly demanded that the lyrics be removed). Morrissey is delighted and flattered by the Peanuts comic strip with its use of Morrissey-Smiths lyrics, and he hopes that the strips remain.”

The website has posted a letter sent to Tumblr from Lauren LoPrete’s legal representatives, outlining fair use to use the lyrics.

In 1984 Morrissey ordered Smash Hits readers to execute Staus Quo

BACK in 1984, Morrissey worked as a record reviewer on Smash Hits to review the week’s singles. Was he full of praise, saluting the singers’ guts, with plus points for effort and likability? Not quite. Pass the caustic soda. And get a him a gun to shoot Status Quo:

The Smiths to reform aka Morrissey’s mortgage payments must be getting tight

THERE is a rumour that never goes out. That’s right, it is that time again to talk about the reforming of The Smiths. Apparently, the furiously overrated band are going to put aside their differences and return to the stage this Autumn. If The Stone Roses can do it, then why can’t Morrissey & Co?

Looking at the hatchet buried by Ian Brown and John Squire, it appears that everyone is willing Morrissey and Marr to do the same, and apparently, they’ve found ‘common ground’ with each other. Or, as everyone else calls it, ‘money’.

Morrissey, Sean Penn and Roger Waters face Jim Davidson in Falklands Islands Celebrity Smack Dow

IN times of diplomatic troubles we turn to Morrissey. He tells a crowd of fans in Córdoba, Argentina:

“We know the islands belong to you.”

You’ve got to like that ‘we”. It ads sa touch of menace, the velvet standard of a shadowy group of which Morrissey is a member know the truth.

So far, the Argentines have scored Morrissey, Sean Penn and the Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters. The British have Jim Davidson.

Brixton Riots – Don’t Blame Twitter. Blame Morrissey and St Trinians

THERE’S a lot of silliness this morning about how last night’s London riots were not caused by opportunist chavs bent on smashing things up and getting a very good deal on a new pair of Reeboks. But is it actually Twitter’s fault. The theory is that otherwise law abiding individuals heard all about the fun on the riot hashtag and suddenly morphed into anarchists bent on causing chaos in north (and a bit of south) London.

But why should the buck stop with Twitter – here are three other reasons why we saw widespread rioting last night.

1 Blackberrys – I was actually going to do a jokey post about the way in which QWERTY keyboard phones have made it so much easier for wannabe rioters to keep themselves organised. But then this lot beat me to it with a detailed examination of how Blackberry’s messenger system BBM was used by some of those rioting in Tottenham.

‘BBM as it is known, is an instant messenger system that has become popular for three main reasons: it’s fast (naturally), it’s virtually free, and unlike Twitter or Facebook, it’s private.

Morrissey: Norway’s Anders Breivik ‘Nothing Compared To [Colonel Sanders] Actions of KFC’

MORRISSEY says that mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik should have killed chickens if he wanted to look truly bad.

Before a show in Warsaw, Poland, the miserabilist opined:

“We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Shit every day.”

Morrissey Fans Searched For Their Meat At Gig

WHILE the big news of the week is the death of Czech painter Zdenek Sykora, one of the first to use computers for geometrical paintings, we’re more interested in meat.

That’s right, Morrissey continues to have his very public nervous breakdown over what people eat, which will hopefully end with the former Smiths frontman naked in a public square, weeping openly as he gorges on dripping burgers and stale fried chicken.

Glastonbury 2011 Photos: The U2 Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Pole Dancers And Welly Henge

GLASTONBURY Day 2: The rain continued to fall, giving everyone watching the show back home some sense of joy and relief that the BBC had dispatched 274 members of staff to cover the event in the kind of forensic detail Sherlock Holmes would applaud. In our great Photos of Day 2, you will sew Bono, Mr G9, singing songs in front of big neon messages of mottos you can fit on a T-shirt and the names of places they like, or remembers in his prayers.

In the crowd, a few members of pro-tax protest group Art Uncut inflated a 20ft balloon emblazoned with the words “U Pay Your Tax 2”. The balloon was removed by security. Taxes have no place at a big corporate music venue. It’s the last taboo. If Europe needs a Tea Party movement to hook up with Sarah Palin’s supporters in the US, U2 are shoo ins for the official protest song.

Vegetarian And Contrarian Morrissey Likes Lady GaGa’s Meat Dress

MORRISSEY is, as you may have guessed by his constant bleating, a vegetarian. He’s so staunchly vegetarian that he actually makes people decided to eat only meat, just on the off-chance it could irritate him. Constant haranguing never stopped people from doing what they do, rather, only provokes them to do more as an act of snidery.

Mozza has, in the past, walked out on shows because the smell of festival burger vans was making him feel sick, which is a bit rich when you consider that the overriding smell of a festival is faeces and badly rolled joints.

Morrissey Talks About David Cameron, Like You Care

MORRISSEY, rock’s longest face, has refuted claims that he banned suet faced Prime Minister David Cameron from his dressing room at a concert.

The fact is, Mozza probably didn’t have to ban Cameron from his shows because the coalition leader will have no doubt been sneered at by bespectacled Smiths fans, all pathetically grazing his back with their well thumbed Morrissey scrapbooks, pomade and NHS hearing aids.

Seeing as Cameron is a Tory, he’s completely oblivious to criticism. You could call him the most unspeakable insult right to his puddingy head, and he’d spin it into some kind of discourse about something so tedious, that you’ll end up killing yourself at his feet, which he’d then use as encouragement to carrying the devastating cuts, as tribute to you.

Video Of Morrissey Hit With Beer Walking Off Stage

morrisseyAT a Morrissey concert in Oslo, while everyone was looking at their shoes a fan in the crowd lobbed beer at the arch miserbilist.

Morrissey stopped the concert. He asked if someone could point the beer chucker.

Everyone waited. Before too long a man was pushed forward and the band played on. And everyone had a very depressing time:
