£840 on a poster of a Smiths gig that never even happened?
And £340 for a poster for a gig in Poole that did take place!
Some folk have more money than sense...

Congrats. But no love/hard cash to spare for the Joyce-signed Strangeways proof? 😉

Afraid not. My finger was twitching though, cos it was clear no other bugger was buying...

If it just had a little more...colour... like..."Mike Joyce...My Special Steven's most favourite Little Drummer Boy" Etc..?

So, Morrissey's, everyone's least favourite Big Fatty Fascist, scrawls on a Smiths poster and it goes for 400?

Joyce, such a Good Bloke, and God, his drums really do bring everything together perfectly, Etc, slides his Biro over the final ever proof sleeve, and it barely breaks 100?

It seemed to be quite a slow day all round. Perhaps everyone was too busy getting the shandies in for Alf Ramsey's Revenge...?

í probably bought too much.
Perhaps trying to replace the treasures recently tossed..? :head-smack:

Well, you could always just fake it. Others are doing it too.

I hear some people even pay for his signature on records that aren't even his own... 😉

I'm somewhat curious about this incident, but I'm too afraid to ask (and also, it's completely understandable that you don't want to talk about it).

If you ever felt like scanning and sharing the NYD booklet, it would be much appreciated.

Long, sorry story short ~ í had 2 whole weeks to clear my Old House of all my Holy Crap, with a clearance company booked on an immovable date to clean, strip & dump anything that remained, plus the Surveyor & Estate Agent booked, on set dates,to come in and prep & shoot for sale, Etc.

No problem, says í... doh:
But í just got to enjoy the deep dive way too much ~ 'ooh lovely, forgot í had that...remember when í got this...that's a big one', Etc Etc, and ended up running out of time, despite staying up 48 hours straight at The End, to try and get everything packed.
Thus í had to watch as whole wings of The Frady Archive {'88-'95 press, VHS, apparel, ephemera, Etc} being dumped into a Joe Junk truck by a gang of laughing lads, to be transported to the local landfill, apparently unaware of the priceless treasures slipping between their fingers...

So it's all entirely my own fault. Too little prep, too much fun, not enough discipline; story of my life.

Oh Well, I'll Never Learn :o

Holy shit. Very sorry to hear.
I know it's probably no consolation at all, but this is something I could see happen to myself as well.
Don't be too hard on yourself (easier said than done, I know).

í am assuming that it's something like the item mentioned below by @GorgieBoy , if not the actual item itself..? ~

https://www.morrissey-solo.com/threads/dolls-fanzine-info.148121/

"Hi there, I wonder if anyone here can help me? I worked at a music paper in the late 1970s and because I wrote nice things about David Johansen's solo albums I was sent this by Morrissey. Unfortunately and sadly, I never kept the letter that came with it. It's 22 pages of clippings and collages - have attached photos of some of the pages here - and I think this dates from 1979 which I believe was two years before first proper publication of his New York Dolls fanzine. Has anyone here seen any other copies of this? Or did he send it to me as a kind of demo for the final publication? Any help and info greatly appreciated."

Much Thanks.

Holy Shit indeed?

And, yes, the things you own end up owning you...

{But what if you like being owned by things, as noöne else will have you...? :unsure:}

cool :thumb:

I never thought of his NY Dolls ‘book’ as a fanzine, but yes, I guess it could be called that. I think he himself referred to it or his ‘Dead is Dean’ book as a ‘thick pamphlet’ rather than a book.


Just one more, Joe...

Did you say in your other post that those rare videos that you won from the other auction are now in the dump??!

I hope I read that wrong :pray::pray::pray:

O God No! That Omega Treasure was won and delivered to another location, and has never left my side ever since. It is with me now. {And, no, í still haven't unpacked it. í am a Very Slow Joe. But í have 2 weeks off soon, and í will do it then...spending warm Summer daze indoors, Etc?}

Honestly, if that video Lot had been trashed, í would have asked those big lads to throw me in the landfill after it, cos í would have been dead & done.

All this recent Omega booty has been a holy salve on the open sore of my 'loss'...

I didn't want to spell it out like that, but it's true nonetheless. I'm also not going to tell you that things can be replaced, because that's often not true.

You could always develop a criminally hot split personality. 😉

Tell The Lads to give you a furry hug from me.

Whaddaya mean "could"...? :squiffy:

í take it you mean The Feline Lads, as opposed to my Clearance Lads? Not sure, but doubt if the junk guys would oblige. Although y'never know these days...
