Day 2177 - Seeking sanctuary - the trojan warrior

It would appear that Morrissey has a new record label, Trojan, which is a part of the Sanctuary group. It would also appear that we MorrisseysWorlders were given 'a sign' that Morrissey had a new label three days before the official announcement! Let me explain.

In my previous blog entry; which I posted on Friday, I mentioned that long lost MorrisseysWorlder, JG aka Loughton Lil had returned to the fold. Morrissey pessoa, Dawn Mist, took to the comments section of that FTM entry and wrote:

"Welcome back JG. I do not believe we've been introduced?
  I thought we must celebrate your return with this.
  http://truemorrissey.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/minutes-from-meeting-with-high-powered.html"

The piece in question is an old MorrisseysWorld classic from February 2012 entitled, 'Minutes from meeting with high-powered music executives' 16.2.2012'. It is for some reason dated 20 February 2012, but FTM archives show that the piece was actually posted on 18 February 2012. It is a very amusing parody, in which poor Boz is the victim of an awful lot of piss taking, but it is the very final line that is of particular interest. More about that in a minute.

Yesterday was Morrissey's birthday, and although there was no sign of him in The Wrong Arms, a very brief statement, of sorts, was posted on the 'Official Morrissey Facebook' page. It read, 'The Rebirth...Day?' and had a picture of the Trojan Records motif.

This can surely only mean one thing, that Morrissey has signed to the infamous reggae record label. It wouldn't of course be the first 'reggae' label that Morrissey has signed to, as he was previously with Attack Records from 2004-2006 for the release of the two hugely successful LPs; You Are the Quarry and Ringleader of the Tormentors, and Morrissey also racked-up 9 Top 20 singles whilst on Attack.

Both Trojan and Attack are part of the Sanctuary group, so let me now return to the final line of that parody piece, given to us by Dawn on Friday:

Morrissey: 'Do you still have the number for Sanctuary, Mikey?'

A coincidence? Yes, of course - they happen a lot 'round here.

The only other thing to report - other than the fact that I have now at last got hold of a copy of the RSD release, The Boy With The Thorn In His Side/Rubber Ring - is that on Friday, Morrissey (as Morfessa/Dawn) very briefly popped into The Wrong Arms to play a song on the jukebox. It was London by The Smiths. Now WHAT could that possibly mean?

    1. Yes, you told us on Day 2106 of FTM. How on earth did you know, Ernesto me old fruit?

  3. Even if there was no mention of Sanctuary, the posting of a piece about meeting with record label executives seems rather coincidental, considering the timing. The prospect of a new album is exciting indeed.

    1. Forgot to mention that apparently TTY isn't dead (which I recently inquired about). A birthday greeting appeared there yesterday, so will we see a new label announcement there soon?

  4. Nice coincidence & the thought of a new album is appealing to say the least.

  5. good statement off Moz on the Manchester bombing, out with his mother and friends for his birthday, how sad any artist must feel if they have performed at the arena more so if you come from our city

    1. Well said Manc! Fuck terrorist, they can't ruin our lives forever. Truly hoping for a new Morrissey's album soon. Goodnight 😘

    2. Interesting to see that several of the Solowers initially didn't believe that Moz wrote the statement, either because they didn't like what it said or because they were confused by M's FB denial in the past. Sounds vaguely familiar, doesn't it? It appears that the FB page may be replacing TTY.

  6. Yes, you're right Heather Solowers refuse to accept the evidence.👍🏻
