My immediate thought on reading the article, was that it can't be Moz headlining after all; mainly because the other headliners of Bestival are Beck, OutKast and Foals, who are ALL 'smaller' than Morrissey.... but that line about the headlining band having had "a lot of hits to their name", now has me thinking that it could still be Moz. And after all, why would Fifi have made such a thing up about Moz playing?
Either Mr da Bank has either got no clue as to how 'big' Moz is, or he is playing everything down a bit, just in case the festival goers are expecting somebody like Elton John (which is who they had last year). Hmm, In the word of Boy George, I 'reckon' it's the latter, and perhaps that isn't a bad idea.
ROB DA BANK - KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE'S DOING
If it is the Morrissey band headlining, then any appearance by Johnny Marr must be as a guest, unless of course Marr is going to be added to the line up in his own right. Fifi didn't exactly say they were playing together, she just said they would both be there. Here is a reminder of Fifi's words; and by the way, if anybody is reading this blog of mine for the first time, I should explain that Fifi IS Morrissey. I should also like to recommend that you got to the very first entry of Following The Mozziah, and start reading this whole mind boggling story. It will blow you away. Anyway, back to Fifi:
Fifi's wording is VERY interesting. Perhaps I should have posted MORE of that newspaper article. It's all in the 'SHIP':
"HMS Bestival has washed up on a desert island, so the ship will still be there."
"Oh the big ship sailed on the alley alley oh".... and in WHAT month did that ship sail? SEPTEMBER! He's coming I tell yer, he's fuc*ing coming!
THE MORRISSEY BAND - L TO R: S.WALKER, M.WALKER, CAPTAIN MORRISSEY, J.TOBIAS AND B.BOORER... ALL ABLE SEAMEN
ANY OTHER BUSINESS
My thanks to Kirky for posting the lyrics to 'Pimlico Love'. Kirky's tweet also has Morrissey's quote about 'Istanbul', which I mentioned on Wednesday (or was it Tuesday? So much has been written lately, that I have completely lost track.):
FANTASTIC lyrics, and I particularly like the line, "You're an ethical professional, But your hands are rarely clean." Is he talking Sweeney Todd? Is he talking Damon Anacreonte? Is he talking Bankers?
I also love "You scratch my back, and I'll wax yours." Well, Moz DID promise references to MorrisseysWorld in the new LP, and the hairy backed blogger has been a consistent theme!
THE HAIRY BACKED BLOGGER FROM MORRISSEYSWORLD
It's ALL coming together. The jigsaw is nearing completion.
PINCH ME HARDER MOTHER, THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING, IT'S ALL TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!
I can honestly say that I HAVEN'T seen this happen in other people's lives, but one thing is for sure, it IS happening in mine.
JESSE 'PIMLICO' TOBIAS
Log Lady has once again appeared in The Twitterdilly Arms, albeit VERY briefly. Here are her latest words of wisdom:
Could the "almost, almost" refers to the announcement of the new tour? And if so, could the announcement be coming on Sunday? This was spat at me earlier today:
LOG LADY STARES ACROSS THE TWITTERDILLY ARMS TOWARDS KATE RYAN
GWO seems to have unraveled Log Lady's previous statement, regarding the star:
We have also seen Banjaxer in 'The Arms' (I should just point out to anybody reading this blog for the first time, that the Twitterdilly Arms is a 'virtual' pub, that the Blue Rose Society congregate in on twitter). Banjaxer informed everybody that he would be speaking to Moz, and asked for questions. Very few people took him up on his kind invitation, but GWO did:
Kevin returned today with an answer for GWO:
Lol and DOUBLE Lol. He's a very funny bloke that Mozzer.... unless he actually means the working title of the new album is 'None of them Work'. If so, is this the album cover:
NONE OF THEM WORK
On the subject of the '@MorrisseysMum' twitter account, there has been debate among the Blue Rose Society as to who it really is, but as Banjaxer has confirmed (if you read between the lines), it IS Morrissey. Some have been confused by the location of the Mum tweets not matching up to where Morrissey is KNOWN to be, but I am pretty sure that he purposely alters the location, to add confusion.
And finally for today, look at this old tweet that Jazzy found:
Pearl Boorer @BozBoorersKid
I wonder if she feels the same now?
And finally, finally; here is Father Brian's theory on Years of Refusal, with HeatherCat's response:
