"My sincere thanks to Rick and the Blossoms for their recent recentness.
Anything that generates interest in
that tired old Smiths warhorse is testimony to the wallop it packed.
THANK YOU!"

FWD.

I don't think Ket Sun really cares.
I think he thought well that Dodwell kinda bitched about Rick , so that must be how M feels.

And it prob is how M feels but he didn't want to appear "up right "

A friend of mine said something to me when he saw loads of yanks talking smack about Rick

He said the Anericans are too precious about the smiths..they miss that rick is keying into the music hall aspect.

@Famous when dead, did Rick Astley ever comment on being on the Playboys single re-release cover?

f*** sake BB....
I’ll have a fiver of what you’ve just had....😁

If there was an award on here for the greatest ranter you would win hands down my friend...

How’s the tour going...??
Must be on the last lap are we ???
Nope. It's like Bob Dylan, mate...The Never Ending Tour...lockdown woke me the fcUKin fcUK up. I missed:

Random casual hook ups.

Live music.

Beer 🍺and convivial casual chat with pub randoms and bus stop chatter-natter.

Going to Mass.

Etc.

I'm retired. But you can't boast about your swing on the golf course all day, every day and the allotment is quieting down for autumn-winter so...hit the road in a 20 year old Corsa I kept for the son and daughter for cheapo insurance after driving test pass but both say variants of "I ain't driving that Boy Racer hair-dryer Dad! Stop being an embarrassment and unlock your secret stable- stash of Mercs, MGs and Morgans."

Just concluding interminable divorce from Her Indoors so in semi-permanent Get Yer Freak On mode blasting the Rolling Stones popping Viagra like it's rice in 60s Biafra..(!) Heterosexuality is going out of fashion but I'll slake my thirst on the moist dregs left at the 3am taxi rank, etc etc...no coke up the nose or arse these days, too dangerous at my age...We'll all be a long time dead. In the midst of the Rona we already half-dead, etc... So 'enjoy yourselves, it may be far later than you think'. New album by The Specials is ...special!

Actually, in 'real life' I'm an entirely serious political activist and have had a decades long career as a ruthless good cop-bad cop Paedo Hunter. Child protection stuff. Not pleasant...but...someone's got to wash the scum off these fookin mean streets and God gave me that call. Far more important than being yet another tart prancing about onstage being all la-di-dah precious about Art. If music wuz gunna change anything, it would've happened by now...music is a busted flush but good for a larf...Saturday Night's Alright For Rick Astley-ing to The Smiths Songbook but now it's Monday morning and I'm about to join a Zoom conference call with some friends, frenemies and enemies in the Vatican. When Morrissey turned up in Mamma Roma, they asked me: "Anders, what's that wanker doing rocking up here 🤔?" I replied: "fcuk if I know...just ignore him, he'll get bored and go away. He has a jelly mind, mollity...didn't crack school Latin, he couldn't hack it en Londres, lads, he won't last long here...". 😉

You take your Vitamins D today. My mt8 in Carlisle is still playing a fcukin blinder. Cumbria Blinders...strange, you lot.. but pretty 👌awesome culture ye have preserved up there...take care.

Best wishes.
Yours, in Jubilo

BB

First of all, I'd like to say that I mean no disrespect to you as I gather that you're a big fan of Oasis and Liam Gallagher solo career.

I am not a fan of their music. I never could like them. Of course, they were a huge worldwide success, but Noel's lyrics didn't touch my heart and soul, and Liam's voice felt quite annoying to my ears.

Sometimes, while in my car going to work I tune in some radio station and there it is! Wonderwall. Well, I try to keep tuned and listen to the entire song, but I fail...

This is just to express my opinion that worldwide success and sold out concerts to huge crowds are not necessarily synonymous with artistic unanimity.
I think the same thing, but I directly think that Liam G and Oasis are horrible. And as a woman I think that I do not find G brothers attractive, so who said that all women want to sleep with that Liam G ?? I nooooo

Mr. Steven Patrick thanked for not looking so bad with Ricky Ricky Astley AstleyThese people took advantage to make money in 1st place that was what really caused them, but they cared a fart if any of the members of the Smiths bothered him or not, they did not even tell J Marr that they were going to do it and they did not invite them, to see the show, I wonder what fan of soul and heart can act like this with Morrissey / Marr
What kind of fanatics acts that way, for my way of being, no fan could do that. I think a scam is the word I find most suitable for these 2 shows, for me it is a great truth like a temple, but many people do not recognize because the truth hurts. Mr Morrissey thank you yes, but more sincere was Johnny!!!! very well Johnny Marr !!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome! And some people will still find a way to criticise Morrissey for saying that, just wait and see...

And by the way, Morrissey has always been a big Echobelly fan, he sort of discovered and supported them back in the day so why in the world wouldn't he go and attend a gig by a band he likes so much??? Sorry but some people here are just plain stupid.

Not sure if Moz's message could be called "gracious", a begrudging, half-hearted pat on the back if anything.


He does have his own style when paying a compliment... I ran his message through Google translate:

Rick,
You and your bunch of long-legged hippies are flogging a dead horse that used to be mine. I don't particularly care about it anymore, but for form's sake I'll pretend I noticed because if I don't, people will think I'm upset and snort.
Now f. off back to Weston-Super-Mare where you belong.
Love and longing,
Morrissey (a far superior singer anyway)
.

P.S: Echobelly were better.

I would anticipate he’s thinking about touring in the UK soon, and he might be considering Echobelly as support? I personally would welcome this: it’s 17 years since I’ve seen Morrissey tour with a good support band (Sack being the last credible opener I can remember).

I think something may be brewing, Morrissey is spending a lot of time at Beechmount nowadays. If he is planning a UK tour I hope he plays a couple of nights at The Apollo. I’ve also heard Johnny is finalising a tour for early next year, maybe my minds going into overdrive but it would be great if they agreed to join each other on stage if they are both touring at the same time.

correct
I think he thought well that Dodwell kinda bitched about Rick ,
I never read Dodwell’s articles.
so that must be how M feels.
No, I don’t think M has ever had any grudge against Rick. Also, I don’t care what he thinks of Rick.
And it prob is how M feels but he didn't want to appear "up right "

A friend of mine said something to me when he saw loads of yanks talking smack about Rick

He said the Anericans are too precious about the smiths..they miss that rick is keying into the music hall aspect.

Informative. Skinny really pulled some shit out of his ass in this thread.

What an embarrassment. :(

Maybe you should check out the likes after his posts regarding your about turn. I'm afraid it looks like you've made a bit of a fool of yourself over the Rick/Blossoms gig.
