Excerpt:

BMG Records have dropped Morrissey. Following the March 2020 release of I AM NOT A DOG ON A CHAIN
(#1 Scotland, #1 Poland, #3 Britain, #3 France, #10 Spain, #13 Germany, #2, #9, #17, #18 U.S.A. - depending
on which official chart you follow), BMG have appointed a new Executive who does not want another Morrissey
album. Instead, the new BMG Executive has announced new plans for 'diversity' within BMG's artist roster, and
all projected BMG Morrissey releases/reissues have been scrapped.

"This news is perfectly in keeping with the relentless galvanic horror of 2020," said Morrissey, "we would be critically insane to expect anything positive."

Morrissey is once again in search of a new label willing to release his music.

"My three albums with BMG have been the best of my career, and I stand by them till death. Recording them has been a pivotal period in my life, and I thank the previous BMG team and everyone involved for that. It's still important to me to do music my own way, and I wouldn't want to be on a label that dictates so specifically how their artists should behave - especially when the word 'talent' is notably never mentioned."

Morrissey's duet with David Bowie is now available on Parlophone via Warner.

"There are too many cases of successful artists languishing at labels who are no longer interested in them." Alistair Norbury, BMG.

Morrissey's Las Vegas residency remains in place for 2021.

It’ll be picked up by someone else I guess. And I expect the publicity will do her sales no harm, in the long run.

Yeah. I didn't really understand her generation so I had a gruesome fight with her years ago, but I've since become fond.

She was a massive iconoclastic homophobe in the 80s & I heard a rumour that she regretted it when she realised Morrissey was the most rebellious Queen in showbiz & she'd made him dislike her.

I gossip more than a Manchester dentist.

The shame of it.

I always keep a confidence though. If you want something secret, I will take it to the grave.

She's a transphobic racist. I fail to see the attraction.

Morrissey reissues- any update?

Hey folks-

Last I heard, it sounded like Morrissey was reissuing Ringmaster of the Tormenters and You are the Quarry on LP in 2020. Anyone know if there has been an update on these? Thanks!

As per Central's post from last November:
"all projected BMG Morrissey releases/reissues have been scrapped."

Strange post. Regarding the charge that Morrissey is ‘Nazi’ or ‘racist’, both of which I’ve read on this thread, I’d ask people to apply some logic. Firstly, if Morrissey or his fans were ‘Nazi’ then why is he so fond of Israel? National Socialist Germany was not supportive of Jewish people to say the least. Furthermore if Morrissey is racist then why did he include a duet with a BAME singer on his most recent album?
A failed token gesture seen through for the cynical act that it was.

Bollocks. There's nothing cynical about either liking Tel Aviv (one of the most gay friendly cities in the world) or in wanting Thelma Houston to sing the high notes in his Righteous Brothers homage.

All his interests go back decades. Then get erased or cherry picked for outrage.
