Exclusive auction in aid of Cancer Research UK

MORRISSEY PRINT BY PAT POPE, DONATED EXCLUSIVELY TO SOUND & VISION

100% of final lot price will help fund Cancer Research UK’s life saving research

This is a never before seen image, shot in 1997 for Melody Maker. The image was shot on Mamiya RZ67, on colour film and cross processed. “The double exposed image involves Morrissey changing chairs, back and forth about 60 times...which he was happy to do.”

Morrissey began a solo career, making the top ten of the UK Singles Chart in the United Kingdom on ten occasions. Widely regarded as an important innovator in indie music, Morrissey has been described by music magazine NME as "one of the most influential artists ever," and The Independent has stated that "most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status that he has reached in his lifetime.”

Pat Pope started work predominantly in the music business in 1993. He shot for many magazines including NME, Q, Melody Maker, Vox, Uncut, Elle and The Times. He still works in music today but has broadened his horizons to include fashion, travel and lifestyle.

To get this exclusive opportunity to own this piece of music history....

Don't Cancer Research UK test on animals? Don't think Morrissey would approve of this sale...

hope Morrissey aproves it, not that spectaculair pic, but for cancer reseach
his arse 'n all pic of whatever one would have been OK

news on the EMI situation, the UK situation and European is saved ,
in the USA it's taken over by Citybank
Just read the news in the Dutch 3-voor-12 newsletter

hope Morrissey signed EMI, minor Major in the UK, as Bona Drag was released
but that was also possibly cuase EMI owns the right from the first 4 studio albums , solo
+Bona Dra9 1990 and 1993 Beethoven was Deaf

Morrissey would NOT support animal research - do NOT give your money to Cancer Research UK!

From the Cancer Research UK website:

The use of animals in cancer research
A great deal of cancer research is carried out without using animals. In certain areas, however, animal research remains essential if we are to understand, prevent and cure cancer. Cancer Research UK only uses animals when there is no alternative.

Cancer patients and their families are at the heart of everything we do. We believe that all our research is vital if we are to save the lives of more patients in the future.

What kind of fool uses Moz to raise money to CAUSE suffering rather than prevent it?

I'm not sure how I feel about this, some of my family have had cancer in the past and some have died. The ones that didn't die may not have survived had it not been for research such as this.
