  • No major setlist changes from the recent autumn, no surprises unless you count at least two songs droped tonight (one was Pigsty, according to Jean Sebastien, who glimpsed the setlist – and this is confirmed by the water glasses for Boz trundled out and then dispatched back to the wings).

    In keeping with the policy of withholding setlist sheets if a song was dropped, no setlists were available. I suppose this policy is to keep us in the dark about what we're missing when Moz makes an impromptu decision to cut them.

    Moz in black shirt (which was not thrown out and apparently not changed even though Moz left the stage at least twice before the encore), tie with James Dean’s face replicated on it, amd dark navy blue trousers. Th’Lads in brown shirts and trousers.

    Backdrop: Richard Burton in “Look Back in Anger”

    Intro: Klaus Nomi’s “Wayward Sisters”
    Moz opened with Stop Me.
    --In no particular order (and likely incomplete):
    Last of the Famous International Playboys
    Crashing Bores
    The Loop
    Sister I’m a Poet
    That’s How People Grow Up
    I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris
    National Front Disco
    Why Don’t You Find Out for Yourself
    All You Need Is Me
    Irish Blood, English Heart
    You Have Killed Me
    Stretch Out and Wait
    How Soon Is Null?
    --------encore--------
    First of the Gang

    Scabby got the first handshake of the night, and I got the second one. Moz was very sparing with the handshakes, leaving several up front and in the second row frustrated. Did not toss any shirts into crowd. No sucessful stage invasions. The barrier was not that far back, but it was deterrent enough, and the security roughly shoved Guillaume down at the encore. Guillaume was the only one I saw make a serious attempt to get on at the stage.

    Early on in the set, Guillaume gave Moz a black t-shirt with white lettering: NME journalists who lie. Moz thanked him and said, “He made it himself”.

    Moz asked Julia, how have you been? Julia came up with the astonishingly novel “I’m well. How are you?” and “a little” in response to “Are you jetlagged?”

    Then Moz asked me if I was jetlagged, too. I was going to answer, but Moz kept teasing me in the usual way – twirling the mic in front of me and snatching it back each time I reached for it. I let him taunt me twice like that, and after the 2nd or 3rd time, I just put my hands down and buried my face down in them. Look, you freak, I don’t play that shit for long. While my head was down, I could hear Moz saying, “Say something witty…very witty…” I refused to rise to the bait, i.e., reach for the mic. He kept repeating “very witty” as if to say sarcastically that my silence was terribly witty. Whatever. He’s usually contrite after being a sarky bastard to me. We’ll see how it goes in Strasbourg.

    Where the hell was Mikey Farrell? Instead, there was some new guy with a soul patch. He was Christopher Pullen (spelling?). Played competently, but Mikey’s left some awfully huge shoes to fill, and we’re sorely missing the brilliance of Mikey. Where is Alain, Gary, and now Mikey? Awww…we’ve lost our boy(s).

    Onor (spelling?) – Moz recognized him as being from Turkey. I thought Moz was asking him to name the venue in Istanbul where Onor saw him sing. But Onor thought Moz was asking him if he could recommend a good venue to play the next time he comes to Turkey. I think Onor said something confusing about playing “in Turkey, NOT the Middle East”. I’ll have to ask him later to clarify this exchange. It was garbled and confusing in part because English is not Onor’s primary language.

    I asked a local (salut, Vincent!) his best guess as to why Moz chose this rather obscure town in (as Guillaume put it) “the middle of nowhere”. Vincent theorized that La Cooperative de Mai enjoys a favourable reputation, perhaps music industry people in France recommended it. The chief of La Co-op used to run a very influential nightclub in Paris and then opened up La Co-op. I think this explanation makes the most sense. The ven

  • That was a really lovely review of Morrissey’s concert tonight. I can’t believe I had to get this highly complicated case of bronchitis - and cannot travel as per Doctor’s orders. Well, I got my baby soooo many many times this summer and he was soooo extraordinary and perfect and still is. And it was first and second rows to top it all off except for one show in particular whereby we had to be general admission because - that was the only type available, and we hated that one. We shall never go to another general admission gig again. Lesson learned. We didn’t hate Morrissey, I love Morrissey-we just hated the groggy, cranky, vagabonds of fans that were near us by the stage-it had nothing to do with Morrissey-nothing at all. Also, we didn’t mind Julia, Julia did not bother us, she is always very very nice. So I think it’s only right that all of you on here, get a chance to have him now. You guys are all so lucky and I am very very happy for all of you people on here who now get him. I believe in fate, so I guess it wasn’t meant to be that, that I see him at the moment. It sucks being this sick. The set list sounds like it was awesome. I love “YHKM” , “CB”, “LOTF”, I love them ALL actually, they are all beautiful, beautiful songs. But the thing I am most sad about particularly is that, is that I did not get to see him sing “That’s How People Grow Up” again. Because That’s How People Grow Up is now my number one, it has even replaced “NPS”, That’s How People Grow Up, I think is his most mesmerizing, warm, lovely masterpiece after “NPS”. It’s the ultimate. It seems like Morrissey is indestructible, every single concert, his voice, his wit, and his giving people shirts - they are all, they are all life altering experiences ... and when the lights go on at the end, you’re like - oh my God I don’t want it to be over, it can’t be. It sounds like you people understand.
    Anyways, it would have been nice if you all got to see him play Life Is A Pigsty again, tonight. But-maybe he just didn’t want to play it-maybe. You know how Morrissey is, my baby - he likes to, he likes to change his mind and this could be because of everything - or it could be because of nothing. Regardless, everything he experiences and validates is essential - because, Morrissey is my concern.
    Drinking Full Throttle with my prescriptions is very very soothing to my throat. But I can’t sleep. I was going to register on the forums, but I changed my mind-I don’t want to register on the forums. So, I am not going to register anywhere else on this site. Somebody called me a “cunt” earlier today on the remix, remaster, master or whatever the hell you call it topic-aren’t they lovely. Right - so, I am here and you are there ... and God knows why.

    P.S. I love you.

    Thank You and Good Night.
