Day 805 - And Now Morrissey Returns Too

On Sunday, MorrisseysWorld re-opened for business, and the very next day, it was announced that  Morrissey is to return to the stage! On this occasion, I am happy to put this down to coincidence, but either way, it is excellent news. Here is the TTY statement regarding the 'Three Song Concert':


Morrissey to appear at Nobel Peace Prize event in Oslo

25 November 2013
Morrissey will appear at the Spektrum in Oslo (Norway) on December 11th. He will sing three songs at the Nobel Peace Prize event. Morrissey will be accompanied by Jesse Tobias (guitar), Boz Boorer (guitar) Gustavo Manzur (keyboard), Solomon Walker (bass) and Matthew Walker (drums).



SPEKTRUM - OSLO


It would appear that Matt Walker is back as the band's drummer, having previously left under rather mysterious circumstances. Could he possibly have left because he read the MorrisseysWorld piece about replacing the drummer? Funnier things have happened, but who can forget this tweet that Matt posted just before he departed?:


things are weird and getting weirder.





REUNITED AND IT FEELS SO GOOD - THE GINGER MINGE RETURNS.....AND ALSO....HAS BOZ GOT A CESAREAN SCAR, OR IS ONE OF THOSE IN-CAR RECORD PLAYERS FROM THE 60S BUILT INTO HIS STOMACH?

IMPLANTED IN THE BOZ?


The return of the MW blog has meant that I have been able to re-visit some of the old classics, and there really are some comedy gems in there. I still feel desperately disappointed for all the thousands of Morrissey fans who are missing out on this material, and am also sorry that Our Mozzer isn't getting the audience he deserves, but until the penny finally drops, there is nothing that anybody can do to help them. Would a Blue Rose worn in Oslo make any difference? Probably not!

The new MW parody piece that has been promised, hasn't yet been published, but a title has been given, 'MorrisseysWorld The Documentary by Marcus Markou', and a cast list has been printed. The cast list shows that I am to be played by somebody called Nick Ferrari, who apparently is a rather  portly radio presenter. I am not happy at this casting, and must guess that this is the "lesson" that I am being taught by Our Mozzer.

I am looking forward to reading the 'documentary' article, which I am presuming, as it is being credited as the work of Marcus Markou, will actually be written by Morrissey, in the character of Our Mozzer, pretending to be Marcus! It's a bit like Terry Jones playing the part of a woman, who is pretending to be a man.

And on the subject of Monty Python, it was announced last week that the surviving members are to reunite for a series of concerts, but do reunions ever really work, and without Graham Chapman (Brian in 'The Life of Brian'), how can it possibly be the same?

And finally for today, I couldn't help smiling when I read the latest TTY statement about the chart performance of Autobiography. What was it that Marcus Markou was saying about Moz being obsessed with chart positions and numbers?


26 November 2013
Autobiography by Morrissey is the number 2 best-selling paperback in this week's UK book chart. Morrissey was dislodged from number 1 byPhilomena, the book of the film starring Judi Dench, which out-sold Morrissey's Autobiography by 51 copies.

  2. Great to see you back Manc, and it's so exciting that Moz will return to the stage soon. A while ago in chat, Our Mozzer had expressed a desire to replace Anthony so is it a coincidence that Matt is back?

  3. There is more positive news each day.
    Great to learn that Matt Walker will be back drumming with the band.
    Philomena is a wonderful film, but I haven't read the book on which
    it's based.

    1. lizy remember mw posted an article about letting is drummer go, then matt left saying things were wird, gettin' weirder. Then MW told us he didn't like his new drummer.... a few weeks later matt is back!


      it's amazing ain't it?


      coincidences on and on

      remember MW said he'd publish his little list - maybe he meant list of bandmembers with matt back in!

    2. I also wondered if the band members list was what Our Mozzer had been hinting to look out for.
      Anyway it is great to see Matt back & I am delighted with the news that Moz will be on stage again very soon.

  4. The 26 November TTY statement about 'Autobiography' has been changed to say it was out-sold by 21 copies. More confirmation of obsession with numbers?

  5. Nick Ferrari will give you plenty of figures and statistics on many subjects ranging from immigration to police numbers. Everyone's at it these days. Numbers, stats, charts, tables... there is only one word to describe it - 'tawdry'. Artists have been sucked into this empirical onslaught - and taught from an early age that their self worth and approval comes from these things - its a con, don't fall for it. And what does a 'number one hit' actually means these days? Nothing. There are some chart toppers - like the excellent and underrated 'Shuddap You Face' by the Joe Dolce Music Theatre, which are wrongly considered as 'joke' songs. It doesn't make sense.

  6. Signs fall like red wine into the glass of our minds, hollow and willing. Peachy skin and desolate heart; you yearn for sodium light wilderness of the M62 by dusk. Shambolic and yet more elegant than they could ever be - your eyes pale and clear, the opposite of his white hot furnace eyes, unblinking, electric, empty. Did they cry? Did they even try? Memories of weeping willow swallowed up by fog when we gazed across the pond to the rusty round-a-bout and the red swing. One day I'll walk; one day I'll lie down; one day I'll die.
