the imbecility of telling your record label they don’t have a contract when you don’t need one? What is that stupidity, right? It is like your holding four aces and when it comes your time to bet you show your hand first. Can nobody play the game? You sign contracts and then if they aren’t signed you don’t warn your record company.

Most of the Harvest team are very nice, and I sincerely thank them for trying and caring so much – even if their promotional duties were fully undertaken by the Morrissey audience themselves, whose You Tube videos for World peace is none of your business fully provide the art that the label could not muster. The listeners instantly understood how entertainment could also be art.

The album has also been taken down from streaming site Rdio as well as the Stateside Amazon store as a digital purchase, reports Slicing Up Eyeballs, who add that it is currently not known if the move was at the behest of Morrissey or Harvest, the label on which the record was released. A UK representative for Morrissey refused to comment on the removal of the album in the US.

No recording Agreement with Capitol-Harvest was ever signed by Morrissey, and Morrissey retains full ownership of World Peace is None Of Your Business. Contrary to the assured Billboard report, Capitol-Harvest have very clearly stated that they would have no interest in licensing a second album by Morrissey

“Farther down the chart, Morrissey’s World Peace is None of Your Business sold an estimated 13,500 to place him somewhere between 18 and 20.” In a nation of 300 Million people it appears to clear the golden age of Moz is not upon us. On Spotify, the title track has been streamed 500K times and “Istanbul” 400K times ergo, in dollars and sense, some $3,000 worth.

Well he aint dead. Taking to True-To-You.Net Morrissey goes on a little rant about politics with a dash of animal rights and a smear of ‘woe is me’. Its an odd entry on his borrowed blog. Scattered thoughts from a man who generally has meticulous flow.

The Ed Sheeran album isn’t great but two songs on it are great, and the Bleachers album isn’t great either but “Roller Coaster” and “Leave Your Lover” are both such terrific songs they are gonna be duking it out for the rest of the year for supremacy round our way.

Morrissey has a few camps of fans. The know it alls who can tell you the number of hairs on his ass cheeks and his pulse rate at each recording session, the ones who dig his music his politics, and think he’s a fox (that’s me!) and the Uber psychotics who live in worlds of fan fiction and verbal muscle tactics. Everyone wants a piece of the guy and someone’s gonna get one.

The first four songs on this list are a very clear reflection of what I am listening to for kicks when I find the time to listen to songs for no other reason than kicks. “Salad Days” and Rollercoaster” are in that magic place where it is on constant repeat in the back of my head.

The songs aren’t that hot. “Peace”, “Neal Cassidy Drops Dead”, “Kiss Me A Lot” –they have something incomplete about them, it is like they couldn’t quite close the door on the songs. “Mountjoy” sounds important with its martial beat and destructed depression (it is about Irish prisoners) but it isn’t a good song.

I woke to find numerous fans selling copies of the disc for upward of $50.00. WHAT?! The fucking thing cost $1.99! And that’s when it hit me, people are the same everywhere. Supply and demand right?

The Moz has some lovely moments, I think, it is a little hard to settle into it, it needs concentration and the CSNY took Graham Nash used to cut and paste from a whole tours worth of music, someimes changing a single line from one version to another. CSNY 74 has everything you thought it would and plenty I for one (admittedly, not a huge fan) have no idea about, including “Goodbye Dick”, Neil Young sticking in the knife to one former President Nixon.

‘It’s been quite Disheartening to see the ‘Facebook’ Hatred thrown about by Our Former Friends/ Working Partners Kristeen Young and Tony Visconti.

It seems incredible that after his disastrous 2012 tour, which also ended with cancellations aplenty, Moz got insurance for the 2014 jaunt and also, even more remarkable, that he did so without a check up which found him capable of catching a virus from Kristeen so virulent he had to cancel the midtour.

The rumors are that his ‘medical team’ deemed it necessary. Now lets see, Moz was happy, laughing, giddy and slurring words when we saw him in Boston-was he under the influence of something? I honestly do not think so but what the hell do I know without a urine sample.

Morrissey even was joking around and being silly during the show- that’s right, *silly*. He named all the greats who’d played at that opera house, naming all the Golden Girls, threw in an anecdote of how Boston’s history pamphlet advertised that they had the ‘world’s smallest suspension bridge’, and he was slurring a bit, completely comfortable so very casual and jovial. Someone check his BAC?

Although the tune came out in 1965 this video is from 1967 and may well be one of the most incredibly awkward videos of all time. But honestly this just adds to the magic of the tune. So first off THANK YOU Mozzah for introducing me to a great artist!

Boston you didn’t disappoint. Your notoriously my least favorite city and when the crowd started walking out (for lack of hits) or sitting down or dashing out (during Meat Is Murder) your lack of fandom and lack of manners and couth were showing. But it wasn’t meant for you- it was meant for us.

Stenciled on the ground outside Manchester UK’s infamous fast food joints is the “Meat Is Still Murder” stamp paying homage to the infamous Smiths tune.

The Mozerians will rejoice as mobs often due but in my effort to remain objective amongst the mayhem I cannot let the lyrics slide. The story is fine- much like any other world issue blather but ugh, c’mon with that last word echo.

Helen was was complaining that the Morrissey setlist for North America 2014 seemed a little on the iffy side and she may well have a point there. This is a strangely obtuse bunch of songs. What is more worrying is his actual performance may have finally descended into schtick. Really, enough with all the hugging already, it no longer signifies affection or love or interest or respect, it just disrupts the performance.

When it became apparent that Morrissey’s set was going to overlap with the WAS/PAWS bill, everybody really did agree that couldn’t work — even though the two venues are separated by a reasonably thick wall. Moz fans wouldn’t have been able to hear a lick of what they’d paid to see
