Day 967 - Morrissey Shows the Way in San Jose

7:00 am: Fifi promised a treat for the BLUE ROSE SOCIETY, but what she didn't promise was Christmas f******g Day! I have awoken this morning to find that last night, on the opening night of the tour, Morrissey sang TROUBLE LOVES ME! YES, TROUBLE LOVES ME! HE SANG THE BRS SONG! I can hardly type, I am so excited, but it doesn't stop there; Moz also sang I KNOW IT'S GONNA HAPPEN SOMEDAY, our COCTEAU song, and the ONLY song that Our Mozzer re-tweeted when I was trying to guess the setlist the other day.

AND THERE'S MORE! MOZ SANG HAND IN GLOVE, our other Fifi Cocteau song! AND THERE'S MORE, Morrissey sang Life is a Pigsty, The National Front Disco, Asleep, Everyday is Like Sunday, I Have Forgiven Jesus...... I actually think I might self combust with excitement. GET ME ON A PLANE.

I will update this blog entry throughout the day as I find Youtube footage, photos etc, and I would like to invite all BRS members to post their comments throughout the day too. Please feel free to post as many times as you like, and let your excitement flood out.

I have so far seen snippets of Hand in Glove, That's How People Grow Up, The National Front Disco, World Peace is None of Your Business, and One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell, where Moz seems to get mobbed, and the song is cut short. Were there any roses delivered? I'm sure I saw a backdrop of Bruce Lee and a vase of roses! I shall return later. Here is the setlist:

WEDNESDAY MAY 7 - SAN JOSE NATIONAL CIVIC

SET LIST

1. HAND IN GLOVE
2. THAT'S HOW PEOPLE GROW UP
3. GANGLORD
4. SPEEDWAY
5. I HAVE FORGIVEN JESUS
6. WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS
7. I'M THROWING MY ARMS AROUND PARIS
8. YES, I AM BLIND
9. THE BULLFIGHTER DIES
10. LIFE IS A PIGSTY
11. EVERYDAY IS LIKE SUNDAY
12.  EARTH IS THE LONELIEST PLANET
13. TROUBLE LOVES ME
14. MEAT IS MURDER (+BAND INTRO)
15. FIRST OF THE GANG TO DIE
16. THE YOUNGEST WAS THE MOST LOVED
17. I KNOW IT''S GONNA HAPPEN SOMEDAY

UPDATE 7:54 am: Drummer Matt Walker has tweeted and favourited my reply to him of "Welcome home, Matthew.":

my first full show in nearly two years...so nice to be back....a little chaos never hurt anyone.....or blood....battered but content.

There are new backdrop photos. My thanks to Clover Dean and Erica Calil for supplying the photos..... supplying them to me that is, not to Moz, who I guess found them himself! They WEREN'T ROSES in Bruce Lee's vase after all! :

UPDATE 8:30 am: I have been trawling through twitter for the past half hour, and keep checking Youtube every five minutes. No new videos have been posted, which is really frustrating, but understandable as it is now 12.30 am in LA. A tweeter called '@xamat' has posted to say that Earth is the Loneliest Planet is a Rumba, so I can't wait to her that, and I also can't wait to hear The Bullfighter Dies and World Peace in it's entirety (the clip I have so far seen only lasts 20 seconds, but it has whetted the old appetite). Clover Dean tweeted during the concert to say that there were blue roses at the concert, but did any get to Moz?



WHERE OH WHERE is the Youtube footage for Trouble Loves Me? Aghhhhh! I do believe that this is quite possibly the BEST setlist there has EVER been!

*Goes off singing* World Peace is none of your business, you must not tamper with arrangements. Work hard and sweetly pay la la la......


Embedded image permalink


UPDATE 9:00 am: Fifi has been in touch, saying, "What can I say? Trouble does love me." It certainly does Fifi, old son, it certainly does! I have continued to check Youtube every five minutes, using the simple search of 'Morrissey', and what has just popped up?..... a new teaser video by Boz Boorer, promoting his new single, Girl from Atlanta:



And now, at last, some more footage from last night, thanks to Youtube user 650CaliGirl. There are only little snippets, but it all counts. "Did you feel anything?" asks Moz after Throwing my Arms Around Paris, and then adds, "What was it like?" before gliding seamlessly into Yes I am Blind. 650Caligirl has also added a short clip of I Know it's Gonna Happen Someday and OMG, I could cry, in fact, I think I will. Morrissey's voice is on top, top form, and he sounds like he means every word. He DOES mean every word. It's the BRS Cocteau song. This song is special. Also added are Sunday and Speedway snippets.



UPDATE 9:17 am: "I should tell you, that, a miracle has occurred, and we are about to release the follow-up to Viva Hate. It's been a long wait, but, we shall release a new CD and a new LP, and, however much you like to think otherwise, WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS":



UPDATE 9:33 am: I have written out the lyrics to WPINOYB, which is a SPELLBINDING and POWERFUL new song. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. I am especially unsure of the "boo hoo"!:

WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

World peace is none of your business
You must not tamper with arrangements
Work hard and sweetly pay your taxes
Never asking what for
Oh oh, you poor little fool
Oh oh boo hoo

World peace is none of your business
Police will stun you with their stun guns
Or they'll disable you with tasers
That's what Government's for
Oh oh, you poor little fool
Oh oh boo hoo

World peace is none of your business
So would you, kindly keep your nose out
The rich must profit and get richer
And the poor must stay poor
Oh oh, you poor little fool
Oh oh boo hoo

Each time you vote, you support the process
Each time you vote, you support the process
Each time you vote, you support the process
Brazil, Bahrain, Egypt, Ukraine
So many people in pain

No more you poor little fools
No more you fool

UPDATE 11:06 am: I have just got back from a VERY wet dog walk, and there is LOADS of new Youtube footage. I have added the songs as links to the playlist at the top. We've got Yes, I am Blind, The Bullfighter Dies and Earth is the Loneliest Planet, but I haven't even had the chance to listen to Earth yet. Here is the video of Bullfighter (it is after Y,IAB) plus the lyrics (correct me if I've got them wrong). It is an INCREDIBLE song. LOVE IT , LOVE IT, LOVE IT. There is just too much to take in at the moments, it really IS like Christmas day, and I don't know what present to play with first. I will probably end up in a corner, just shaking and crying:


THE BULLFIGHTER DIES

Mad in Madrid
Ill in Seville
Lonely in Barcelona
Then someone told you
And you cheered

Hooray, Hooray
The Bullfighter dies
Hooray, Hooray
The Bullfighter dies
And nobody cries
Nobody cries
Because we all want the bull to survive

Gaga in Malaga
No mercy in Mercia
Mental in Valencia
Then someone tells you
And you cheer

Hooray, Hooray
The Bullfighter dies
Hooray, Hooray
The Bullfighter dies
And nobody cries
Nobody cries
Because we all want the bull to survive



UPDATE 11:30 am: Here is the video for the mesmerizing Earth is the Loneliest Planet plus the lyrics. I haven't been able to work out all the lyrics, so if somebody could post to let me know what they are, I will correct them:



"I have, I have travelled extensively in my very young life, and I have discovered that Earth is the loneliest Planet." - Morrissey San Jose May 7 2014

EARTH IS THE LONELIEST PLANET

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Day after day you say "one day, one day"
Day after day you say "one day, one day"
But you're in the wrong place
And you've got the wrong face
And humans are not really very humane
And earth is the loneliest planet of all

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Live with a loneness than no one else knows
Time after time you say "next time, next time"
Time after time you say "next time, next time"
But you play it as a pawn
And you lose as a man
Oh we do what we can
And earth has become this place you will never understand

??????
Let it begin
And earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Day after day you say "one day, one day"
Day after day you say "one day, one day"
And there's always a reason why your ?
They always blame you, you, you
And there is nothing anyone can do

UPDATE 11:35 am: It seemed to all kick off during the encore, with multiple invasions, and One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell was cut short due to Moz being throttled!



I have read that during the evening, Morrissey DID receive some flowers, but were they roses, and were they blue?

UPDATE 11:50 am: Blue Roses have been spotted in the audience, but I still don't know if it was roses that Moz accepted on stage, or some other flowers! It had to be roses. It's ONLY ever roses!

UPDATE 1:20 pm: In all the excitement, I haven't had the chance to mention MorrisseysWorld. The MorrisseysWorld blog appeared again yesterday, and both Our Mozzer and Fifi put in an appearance at The Twitterdilly Arms. Even Broken appeared yesterday; in the MW chatroom, but just as I was about to converse with him, I got hauled back into the real world, and missed him.

Needless to say, both the MW blog and the twitter account have now disappeared once again. Here are MW's highlights from yesterday:

In response to @vulgar1mkela's tweet which said, "I do hope I get in (to the Santa Ana Observatory)": "@vulgar1mkela Good luck." This was then followed by, "Luck is the thrill of the rich and the curse of the poor."

Hopefully Vulgar Angie, the Vice President of the BRS, will manage to buy a ticket for tonight's VERY small venue, but if not, I have advised her to give a BLUE ROSE to Donnie, or one of the crew, and see if the rose has the power to get Angie in. It worked for me in NYC, so it might just work for Angie. The fact that Our Mozzer also retweeted Angie's tweet that said, "thank you, I will have roses in hand if I do get in" might just be a sign that Moz will get her in.

Our Mozzer's Twitter Highlight's Continued:

"Sadness is to art as joy is to faith."

In response to @LizzyCatMoz's tweet which said, "I might start a Twitter bet on what the first song will be": "@LizzyCatMoz World peace is not on your setlist." ANOTHER HUGE CLUE as to what was on the way.... and then he was gone!

WORLD PEACE - WAS ON THE SETLIST

I was both surprised and deeply honoured to be dragged into the toilets of The Arms in the early hours of yesterday morning by none other than Mademoiselle Fifi, which was much more of a treat than being dragged in by Banjaxer! I won't repeat our whole conversation, and Fifi will probably kick me for even mentioning the conversation at all, but it is EXTREMELY relevant. In the conversation Fifi mentioned "Lonely Planet" and also asked "Am I the only one?" These were obviously clues to the set list, but I didn't pick up on them. I had a pretty strong feeling that Moz would sing I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday (after Fifi retweeted it the other day), but Trouble Loves Me was a MASSIVE surprise, and something the BRS has been waiting for for a long, long time.... although from my earlier hours conversation with Fifi, I had an inkling that it too was coming last night. Here is part of our conversation:

FIFI: Enjoy what is coming next. You should.

ME: Trouble? Are you ready to sing Trouble?

FIFI: I don't SING "Trouble", I AM "Trouble". There will be a BRS treat but I cannot say any more."

There is STILL no video footage of Trouble on Youtube..... or Pigsty! Arghhh! WHAT a setlist!

UPDATE 2:50 pm: Broken is awake, and has posted these messages in the comments section of today's blog:

Broken 
A magnificent show, as ever. World Peace is the only new one I've watched on YouTube and it had me swaying at my laptop. Thanks to TRM for the MW 'V' sign via Bruce Lee. Honour to those who waved their blue roses.
And then it was over.
Posted by Broken to Following The Mozziah at 8 May 2014 14:02

Broken 
Climb on stage and present him with a blue rose and a blue rose society t-shirt as soon as you can.
D'0'n't f'0'rget to make the sign.
Posted by Broken to Following The Mozziah at 8 May 2014 14:18

Broken 
World Peace will sound wonderful sandwiched between RnB and some dreadful chart pop ditty. If only TOTP was still running.
Posted by Broken to Following The Mozziah at 8 May 2014 14:20

Broken 
Thank the Rat for this site. If not for it, we'd all be on the so-low forum.
Posted by Broken to Following The Mozziah at 8 May 2014 14:22

Vulgar1mkela 
Broken my love the shirt will be made tomorrow
If I do get tickets tonight that will be my goal get them to him while on stage
Posted by Vulgar1mkela to Following The Mozziah at 8 May 2014 14:21

Broken 
Be brave my darling. There are no prizes for waving a rose. Lots of love.

Somebody has reported on twitter that Kristeen Young started her set with the stage backdrop of 'Amanda and Amy' by Diane Arbus. It is a photo that Moz used when I saw him in NYC last January. I have just googled Diane Arbus, and her work is UNBELIEVABLE. No wonder Morrissey and Kristeen both like her work:
Image result for diane arbus amy amanda
AMANDA (AGED 9) AND HER COUSIN AMY (8) - KY BACKDROP



TWO FEMALE IMPERSONATORS BACKSTAGE N.Y.C. 1961 BY DIANE ARBUS

STILL no sign of Trouble Loves Me. I'd better go and walk the dog again.

UPDATE 3:15 pm: GWO has posted this:

girlwithout 
What a setlist!
The image on the drums and the stage pass is of Mrs Shufflewick.
Posted by girlwithout to Following The Mozziah at 8 May 2014 14:49


She certainly has good eye sight, that GWO. I haven't seen any close up footage of the drum, but I am presuming it is this picture of Mrs Shufflewick:



I have never heard of Mrs S before, I am FAR too young, so I now have A Drop of the Hard Stuff to look forward to. I have just listened to the first 5 minutes, and I'm hooked!:

Astraea has also awoken, and left this comment:

Astraea 
So much beauty here. So much beauty on the stage last night. So much beauty in the songs.
So much love here.
And if love and beauty make the heart soar, my heart is gone now.
Forever.
The music, the music, the music... It carries me now, it will carry me always.
And until the end, while music exists within me, I will never be alone.
It is the only thing I have ever loved.
It is the only thing.
Posted by Astraea to Following The Mozziah at 8 May 2014 14:56

I really MUST take that dog out, he's got his legs crossed.

UPDATE 4:15 pm: A video clip of Asleep has been added to Youtube, and it is STUNNING, although annoyingly some twat kept shouting, which even caused Moz to stop singing. The band are all dressed in local Los Feliz t-shirts:



My thanks to GWO for supplying a picture of an official pass, which depicts Mrs Shufflewick again:









Embedded image permalink

UPDATE 6:35 pm: A youtube clip of the intro and the first three songs has been added. Moz looks tanned and it is like he has never been away. He also opens the evening by saying, "Bonsoir", but he is NOT Fifi:



Vulgar Angie has got her BLUE ROSES, and is ready for tonight. The only question now, is WILL her BLUE ROSE manage to get her in to a concert where she DOESN'T have a ticket?

Embedded image permalink

UPDATE 7:15 pm Fifi has paid a visit to The Arms, and I have rather unexpectedly received an email from Moz, although he has pointed out that he didn't actually type it, because "My little finger got a bit twisted last night." No doubt His Mozzness will be wearing a HUGE plaster cast on his pinkie tonight. I have more to add from Moz, but I have just been called for tea.



UPDATE 8:00 pm: Right then, where was I? Oh yes, my email from Morrissey's assistant. He has pointed out that in Hand in Glove, Morrissey can be seen "reaching for the hand of the "little charmer(s)"", adding, "Where did I hear that before? Reach for the hand... Hand in glove... Little charmers...?" You had your clue but missed it. That's OK, I sometimes struggle to understand myself too." He goes on, "Have fun in looking for all the clues. Some of them are obvious, some less obvious. This is what keeps it interesting. I am not telling you any more. There will be much more to say but not now."

I have to say, that my head is spinning with all the information I have tried to take in today, and I WON'T be repeating this tomorrow; mainly because I have a cricket match to attend.

I think Moz may have sensed that my brain is close to frazzling, because Fifi has since dragged me back into the toilets of The Twit Arms, to tell me this:

"Hand in glove/ I know.../ Trouble = BRS anthems.
Speedway = Ping pong."

STOP PRESS: A second email has been received (and YES, I DO know I am lucky), saying, "No more clues, you are not good at this game. Just enjoy the show. The first date was a BRS treat. Now, it's time to please the rest of the world. Ps. You're still a ****"

I do hope that this doesn't mean Glove, I Know and Trouble will now be off the setlist, we haven't even seen Trouble yet!

And finally for today (because my family now need me), Vulgar's roses are ready. Will a BLUE ROSE get her in to tonight's show? We wait with bated (or is it baited? My English is as bad as my French) breath.

ANGIE'S ROSES

UPDATE 9:30 pm: This REALLY is my last posting today. How could I NOT add this comment that has been added to my blog? Thank you, thank you, thank you. WHAT a memory. Hmmm:


Anonymous:
A transcript of significant lyric changes and in-between song banter, typed by my secretary. I really wished she'd stop swearing every time she types an "e". (editor note: I bet you wished you had sabotaged the "z" letter instead now. That's what you get for being such a berk.)

"Bon soir!"

Hand In Glove

"Thank you."

That's How People Grow Up ("NO I'M NOT" instead of "for now anyway")

Ganglord ("Just get your FAT ass back to the ghetto, kill yourself back in the ghetto")

"You know it's true"

Speedway ("Can you see it in your heart - yes or no", "until my loving mouth gets slashed good and proper")

I Have Forgiven Jesus ("By Friday, this job has killed me", "why did you give me so much love in a loveless world when there's no one I can run to to give up all this love")

"I should tell you that a miracle has occured, and we are about to release the follow-up to Viva Hate, it's been a long wait, but we shall release a new CD, and a new LP, and however much you like to think otherwise, world peace is none of your business."

World Peace Is None Of Your Business

I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris

"Thank you. Did you feel anything? What was it like?" (editor note: I somehow felt like stabbing myself in front and back at the same time)

Yes I Am Blind

The Bullfighter Dies

"Thank you."

Life Is A Pigsty ("How come I'm still the same underneath, does anybody know?")

"Thank you. Well, (...) very kind person, a very kind person who recognises all of the band members, (...) person would like to step on the stage and introduce everybody, I don't mind. But if you're too shy, that's ok, I will do it myself."

Everyday Is Like Sunday

"Thank you. Ahm, I have travelled extensively in my very young life, and I have discovered that earth is the loneliest planet."

Earth Is The Loneliest Planet (editor note: After "next time" I think he's singing "but you fail as a woman and you lose as a man", as opposed to the lyrics published on this blog, what was that guy hearing??)

Trouble Loves Me

Meat Is Murder ("kill (it) - eat - kill (it) - eat" (editor note: I much prefer this because death for no reason isn't always murder), "do you care, do you care, do you care?")

"Would be please (put something?) together for - Gustavo Mansur. Would you please squeeze something for Jesse Tobias. On the drums - Matthew Walker. On the bass - Solomon Walker. And the notorious B-O-G (?) - Boz Boorer."

First Of The Gang To Die

The Youngest Was The Most Loved

(editor note: Now he seems to repeatedly say "good evening" but I'm not sure. Then, the music starts off as if Trouble Loves Me is played again, same chords, but it leads into:)

I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday

So anyway, (..) you were saying (obviously hands mic to crowd now): "I love you", "I love you Morr-EE-say!" "Morrissy you're my dream boy" (obviously gets back microphone now)

National Front Disco ("..., the wind blows" (ed note: doesn't sound like "David" but can't make out what he sings. Song ends as if Kristeen Young had put on a Gustavo costume, or the other way around))

----------------------

Asleep

One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell (sings "and before you know goodbye will be fare..." and flees from stage)



B.M.V.

    How on earth am I going to keep my focus at work today?!

    TROUBLE LOVES ME! Oh YES!!

  2. A lot of excitement for the BRS tonight. Too bad some of the fans got a bit over zealous & the last song was cut short. Just hope Moz and band did not get injured. Ratty, bet you were over joyed to hear about 'Trouble Loves Me' but remember you have history of heart trouble, so don't do too many cart wheels tonight. I myself need to get some sleep, as it's past 2AM here. Just have to say it was a very special day for the Blue Rose Society.

  3. Yes Air, it's a great setlist, happy for Trouble, The Youngest, I said it was one of my favourite times ago and recently...(coin.) and very curious for World Peace....just listened a few notes on an instagram video and I like it, hoping for finding video on you tube! Ciao, for now.

  5. Incredible set list - it says it all when a song like "Yes I am blind" hardly gets a mention. Morrissey delivered in a big way to the BRS. More-we-say please, Morr-ee-say

    The set list was incredible and it was thrilling to arise this
    morning to find that the show was still unfolding.
    The power of Twitter means instant information and photos.
    I can only say thank you so much Mr M and please tour in the UK in 2014

  10. A little question: the pucture with the sailors is a backdrop too? i suppose yes, and as you can see there is tmhe name of Ben Gazzarra who is an american actor with sicilian parents. Is Morrissey confirming his concert in Sicily? Also Ben Gazzarra, full name Biagio Antonio Gazzarra, palyed in a film named Blue Moon. Ciao!

The prospect of hearing these songs live on the tour is almost more than I can bear - I'm practically in tears just thinking about it.

  18. I was at the show, we were seated in the section reserved for the Morrissey Crew, pretty close to the stage. It was an incredible show, unfortunately many in the audience were too drunk or doped up to appreciate it (what a shame and embarrassment ). A drunk/drugged up woman literally pushed my husband out of his seat, eventually she was taken out by security. The encore was scarred by some audience members who rushed the stage pushing him and the show abruptly ended. I wouldn't blame him if he never set foot in San Jose. The show was magnificent and he was amazing, he looked fantastic on stage and he seemed to be loving every moment of it, his words are pure poetry.

    1. Thank the Rat for this site. If not for it, we'd all be on the so-low forum.

  27. World Peace will sound wonderful sandwiched between RnB and some dreadful chart pop ditty. If only TOTP was still running.

  30. So much beauty here. So much beauty on the stage last night. So much beauty in the songs.

    So much love here.

    And if love and beauty make the heart soar, my heart is gone now.

    Forever.

    The music, the music, the music... It carries me now, it will carry me always.

    And until the end, while music exists within me, I will never be alone.

    It is the only thing I have ever loved.

    It is the only thing.

    4. Beautiful, Pusscat. I can only echo what the lovely Harrison & others have said. The love is overwhelming.Sometimes life is not entirely a pigsty.and maybe the sun breaks through the clouds from time to time. And btw Harrison..'euphonious'? You shame me with your vocabulary - a glorious word!

  31. Yes I am Blind - I have shed so many tears over that song for the little lamb. Listening to last night's live rendition still got the hairs on the back of my neck all raised.

    Thank you Morrissey.

  32. After listening to the new songs repeatedly, I can officially say that I adore all of them and can't wait to hear the recorded versions. Fantastic lyrics, and I especially appreciate the message of World Peace (well, of all of them, actually...). When will Trouble be posted? Dying to see it...

  33. Also wanted to say hello and welcome back to those who haven't been around for a while: Helena, Broken, Lizzy & Marcus - wonderful to see you all here.

  34. The backdrop used by Kristeen Young is not from Diane Arbus but from Mary Ellen Mark.

  35. Sorry to invade this space when I am not welcome here but I just wanted to say thank you to TRB for all the work he has put in updating his blog today. I am rather short of time and it has certainly saved me trawling YouTube or looking at 'that dreaded site'.

  36. I don't have the words to describe the pure beauty & emotion from Asleep.

    Astraea - I am moved to tears. You have touched my heart with such gentle & meaningful sentiment.
    Its not enough, but, thank you.

  37. I have so much to say but it's to long to go on. Today is my birthday and it started last night at mid-night which was 9:00 pm in San Jose. Today I have felt ill and I would have posted sooner. Rat you are amazing and really without you we would be Lost. Thank you for all that you do and last night was Christmas for The BRS- They will never believe and at this point - Who Cares! Viva Moz, Blue Rose and best of luck to Vulger Tonight!

  41. It has been a brilliant 24 hours with the anticipation of the concert
    and today the songs and reviews and videos.
    Eternal thanks to Our Moz ( look after your poorly finger )
    and to Ratty for holding it all together. It has been a blast.

  42. A transcript of significant lyric changes and in-between song banter, typed by my secretary. I really wished she'd stop swearing every time she types an "e". (editor note: I bet you wished you had sabotaged the "z" letter instead now. That's what you get for being such a berk.)

    "Bon soir!"

    Hand In Glove

    "Thank you."

    That's How People Grow Up ("NO I'M NOT" instead of "for now anyway")

    Ganglord ("Just get your FAT ass back to the ghetto, kill yourself back in the ghetto")

    "You know it's true"

    Speedway ("Can you see it in your heart - yes or no", "until my loving mouth gets slashed good and proper")

    I Have Forgiven Jesus ("By Friday, this job has killed me", "why did you give me so much love in a loveless world when there's no one I can run to to give up all this love")

    "I should tell you that a miracle has occured, and we are about to release the follow-up to Viva Hate, it's been a long wait, but we shall release a new CD, and a new LP, and however much you like to think otherwise, world peace is none of your business."

    World Peace Is None Of Your Business

    I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris

    "Thank you. Did you feel anything? What was it like?" (editor note: I somehow felt like stabbing myself in front and back at the same time)

    Yes I Am Blind

    The Bullfighter Dies

    "Thank you."

    Life Is A Pigsty ("How come I'm still the same underneath, does anybody know?")

    "Thank you. Well, (...) very kind person, a very kind person who recognises all of the band members, (...) person would like to step on the stage and introduce everybody, I don't mind. But if you're too shy, that's ok, I will do it myself."

    Everyday Is Like Sunday

    "Thank you. Ahm, I have travelled extensively in my very young life, and I have discovered that earth is the loneliest planet."

    Earth Is The Loneliest Planet (editor note: After "next time" I think he's singing "but you fail as a woman and you lose as a man", as opposed to the lyrics published on this blog, what was that guy hearing??)

    Trouble Loves Me

    Meat Is Murder ("kill (it) - eat - kill (it) - eat" (editor note: I much prefer this because death for no reason isn't always murder), "do you care, do you care, do you care?")

    "Would be please (put something?) together for - Gustavo Mansur. Would you please squeeze something for Jesse Tobias. On the drums - Matthew Walker. On the bass - Solomon Walker. And the notorious B-O-G (?) - Boz Boorer."

    First Of The Gang To Die

    The Youngest Was The Most Loved

    (editor note: Now he seems to repeatedly say "good evening" but I'm not sure. Then, the music starts off as if Trouble Loves Me is played again, same chords, but it leads into:)

    I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday

    So anyway, (..) you were saying (obviously hands mic to crowd now): "I love you", "I love you Morr-EE-say!" "Morrissy you're my dream boy" (obviously gets back microphone now)

    National Front Disco ("..., the wind blows" (ed note: doesn't sound like "David" but can't make out what he sings. Song ends as if Kristeen Young had put on a Gustavo costume, or the other way around))

    ----------------------

    Asleep

    One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell (sings "and before you know goodbye will be fare..." and flees from stage)

  47. What a scintillating set list!! "Trouble Loves Me", "I Know Its Gonna Happen Someday", "First of The Gang to Die", "Asleep" and one of my personal faves "Ganglord". I literally just got home and wanted to send a comment. Good work Mr. Rat, you certainly earned your pay today! "Our Moz" looks dashing and his voice is quite euphonious. The scene at the end was so very frenzied!! Please don't hurt Moz, loving fans. I am going to watch more clips now. So Bravo to you Moz, kudos to Mr. Rat and devoirs to the BRS members!!

  48. The new songs "World Peace Is None Of Your Business", "The Bullfighter Dies" and "Earth is the Loneliest Planet of All" sound fabulous. I can't wait for the new album! Does anyone know what instrument Boz is playing on "World Peace", it looks like a steel guitar or slide guitar?
