Day 2471 - "Farewell my friends"

I am still buzzing from Saturday's concert at The Palladium, and haven't witnessed any symptoms of the post-concert blues which usually occur after seeing old Mozzer. The songs from Saturday just won't leave my head, and I must have watched the Youtube footage of You'll Be Gone about a million times - WHAT A SONG! WHAT A GREAT COVER OF THE SONG!

I spent this morning compiling the weekly Wrong Arms Chart, and whilst going through Twitter to see what songs had been played in the last seven days, I came across YET ANOTHER 'coincidence'. On Wednesday, whilst in conversation with GOB (remember her?) about wanting to hear the song Israel live, I tweeted, "I have hopes for this Saturday in the intimate London Palladium.... but they're not high hopes", and I then linked a Youtube clip of High Hopes by Frank Sinatra..... and whose name was the first on that Top 10 Most Incredible List that Morrissey read out at The Palladium? - FRANK SINATRA!

What is more, I also remembered that I finished my blog entry of Saturday morning with some lyrics from My Way - it's a double Frank coincidence!

And as I have mentioned the subject of the song Israel, I should also point out that Morrissey actually came out on stage at The Palladium to the opening chords from it....teaser.

Next stop for Morrissey is the Viva Latino Festival in Mexico in four days time.

There are no other scheduled concerts after the Mexico Festival, so what will Morrissey be doing after that? Well, it looks as though he may be going back into the studio, to finish a 'half-finished' album. My thanks to one of the newest members of the BRS, Mozza Kev (@MozzaKev), who linked me to a Youtube clip of Morrissey's producer, Joe Chiccarelli, being interviewed. In the interview Joe is asked about Morrissey and replies, "It's amazing to see the cult of his fan-base. And, um, we've done, er, two and a half albums together. We're about to go back in the studio and finish that half of an album that we didn't finish." - HOW EXCITING! The youtube interview with Joe C has now been deleted!Image result for joe chiccarelli morrissey

And finally, Journalists Who Lie is back in the lower echelons of the charts thanks to the incompetence this week of Dannii Leivers (writing/lying for Clash Music) and Shaun Curran (writing/lying for the Independent). My message to Dippii Dannii and Copy & Paste Curran is, go and find a job more fitting to your talents - journalism just isn't for you. There must be some job you would be good at? How about retrieving lobsters ?

And finally, finally, I forgot to write in my blog entry of yesterday, that as I left the Stalls (that's the ground floor arena to you Americans) of The Palladium on Saturday, I passed well known British film director/documentary maker, Don Letts.... and yet aren't all those who attend Morrissey concerts supposed to be rabid racists? Oh, Uncle Skinny, is there ANYTHING you've got right?

And finally, finally, finally, Morrissey (as Dawn) made a visit to The Wrong Arms, just as I started to countdown the chart. At 12:52pm Moz tweeted, "Farewell my friends", and played All You Need Is Me on the jukebox. He then closed his Dawn Twitter account.



We're going to miss him when he's gone.... and for now, he has gone.

  1. Very exciting news about returning to the studio - hopefully it will actually happen. It was reported on Solow in late January and I read it soon after that, so I assumed that others here knew about it. What a phenomenal tour it's been - looking forward to watching footage from Mexico. I miss Dawn already.

  3. Frank ly Mister Ratty it's a pleasure reading your blog and I hope you'll not be silent for too long, the Mexico festival is not so far and probably we'll have footage to comment. The news of a new disc is fantastic, I can't wait to listen new songs even if I'm not tired at all to listen LITHS. I missed your great chart, sorry! Stay on twitter and keep on blogging! Ciao!πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜˜πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

  4. In regards to Joe C, mentioning that they are to return to the studio and "finish that half of an album that we didn't finish". Am I correct in thinking that Morfessa hinted that there were new songs? Perhaps at the end of last year?

  5. Thank you for clarifying the stalls:) exciting if we got a new album out in a year or so and not have to wait another 2-3yrs. understand what you all mean now at the end of a major tour. Yes also looking forward to footage hoping Mexico goes well so much traveling in such little time ! You all know this-between all the verbal remarks on stage, hand signals, owl impressions, set lists, wrong arms songs, tweet requests, clothing/jewelry, band shirts ...wonder how far ahead he with these “coincidences” impressive how quickly all you sleuths find them. Hope I can become a better sleuth, now that I know what stalls are thanks from the American !
