This is all mighty queer. Alot of these Moz lots must surely come from Jo Slee: "Peepholism" proofs, Arsenal tour itineraries, Etc.

í robbed a bank accidentally a few years back, and bought one of those gold & chocolate "Interesting Drug" variants that had come from Jo Slee. That salmon one though is quite soignée.

í would kill my own Uncle to get my mits on the Sprio spree, and that never-seen Teller 8x10 :love:

Also, aren't some of these lots items that were sold the last time round {There is a Light & Sheila proofs?} GT must have a stash of them. The Smiths are the gift that keeps on giving.

Had this on my bedroom wall, freshly cut from a music magazine of the era - I forget which one. I now get the in-joke which I merely thought, at the time, was Morrissey being wittier than Oscar Wilde.
