Dear David,


My name is Boz Boorer and I represent all of the musicians who played
on I'M THROWING MY ARMS AROUND PARIS (Morrissey).


We are shocked that you have made no move this week to promote the
above song (download/special 7-inch/special CD) to support the people
of Paris. Any other artist would be number 1 with this song RIGHT NOW.


Why are you doing nothing? There is no other song in modern music that
aptly supports the people of Paris.


Most sincerely yours

Dear Boz

Thank you for copying your email to me.

I think we all know that this would be an appropriate and compelling gesture.

I spoke with David Joseph today. His position is that owing to Universal having a very close connection to the events, much as they see your point, they are not intending to release any records in response to the tragic events of last Friday. They feel it is too raw for them given the death of one of their staff members and instead they are going to show support and solidarity in other ways, including concerts in Paris later this year by some of their artists.

However, I believe that Universal would licence the song back for eg a release for proceeds to relevant charities (which I assume would be the plan). In short there may be a possibility here but it would have to be a release via a third party. Personally I think there could be a very forceful statement to be made. It will of course require M's input. Have you discussed this with him - I assume so.

If you want me to pursue this, please let me know. Time inevitably is of the essence.

Yours sincerely

John

Why do you dedicate so much time to this pursuit?
You're an absolute c***, and I wish the very worst for you.

I hope Morrissey's legal team get word of this post and get the plug pulled on this site, permanently. It's gone beyond being a hateful online creche now.

I'm delighted I've punctured your delusions about The Cult Of Morrissey. Wish away.

You could, of course, set out an argument that refutes mine. Good luck with that.

Why does he need a " legal team " ?

No, it is not. Nor is he a "psychopath, sociopath... etc" And this comes from a professional pesychotherapist. So chill out with labeling people with diagnosis when you are ignorant.

A professional psychotherapist who cannot even spell psychotherapist. :lbf:

I also hope Silly Stevens legal team get word of this post as well if the truth be known.
Can you imagine how it will look to the ordinary public next to #profit from Paris-gate ?

Cushty! Enjoy the rest of the weekend, because we can !

What I find interesting with this letter and the David Joseph letter is the trait Morrissey has of picking out and naming each individual who he firmly believes are to blame. It’s really pointing the finger but bordering on very nasty bullying. With the David Joseph letters I would almost believe that Morrissey wanted his fans to find out where David Joseph lives and publicly hound the man for what he has done to Morrissey.

Nice try, Sigmund. If yours was a "Freudian slip" as you say, then I would easily interpret it as a confession of your fakeness.
Besides, Morrissey has made a career out of being different, don't let him down by saying he is just an average guy, he would not like it at all.

As for Boz's email... well where to start. It seems pretty clear that he had 'someone' breathing down his neck as he wrote it. I find it laughable that he claims that it would be a #1 song and even more laughable that he claims that no other song in modern memory better supports the people of Paris. Firstly, it is a mediocre song. Secondly, it could be called 'I'm throwing my arms around Pittsburgh' and it wouldn't make a lick of difference. The song speaks nothing about Paris or it's citizens, only about loneliness - the setting itself is moot. Hardly a fitting tribute to Parisians and especially those already in mourning.

Yep, you are quite right. In fact, when the song was originally debuted live in summer 2007, I viewed it as a clever dig at Paris Hilton, who was prominent in American news media quite frequently back then because of various legal troubles.

Also, I found it a bit odd that Boz thinks he is representing the musicians. Solomon Walker and Roger Manning, Jr. aren't even part of the group any longer.

Universal basically says a third party can release the single, so let us know which charity to donate the proceeds to. Translation, if you can find another label who will handle releasing it, we'll grant you permission, as long as you and the band don't get a cent on it. That's pretty shitty. They know he doesn't have a record label.

And the song itself is a nice tribute to the city itself, but not necessarily the people.

Show us your face Benny. You keep us all intrigued. I bet you are baldy, fat, with a mustard stain on your shirt, sitting in front of your sticky keyboard and plugging away.
Hail to the Benny-the-British-butt plug.

Fat? What's with the fat-shaming? Oops apologies I forgot that you're a Morrissey disciple who must replicate his Master's anti-obesity sentiments. You are also dismissive of people who are follically challenged which is not nice. Do you call bald and overweight people names? A tad hypocritical when you criticize poor defenseless Benny.

"Boz's" email was belligerent and demanding. Universal replied through a lawyer (which might be telling in itself) that sure, although we won't go ahead but we can license it back to you if you can get someone to release it and let us know which charities will benefit.

Where does the shitty part come into that? In the simple fact they did not accede to the demands made in the email? Please.

There is a reason the reply to the email was dealt with by a legal representative rather than a senior executive of the company. The people in charge of Universal didn't get there without being able to smell trouble a mile away. If any of us here received an email in that tone we'd wonder what the hell was going on and if the author was the full ticket.

Good, I think Morrissey does need to seek legal advice about the repercussion's of his musical director sending an email to a Universal Executive that he is representing all the musicians that played on a song. When the truth of it is 2 of the musicians he mentioned didn't play on the song and that the 2 who actually did weren't even mentioned.

I think Universal have handled this very well and basically called Moz's bluff. Something which he'll no doubt be seething over.

If Morrissey and the band felt sooo strongly that this mediocre single from 5-6 years ago was the fitting tribute then they'd be getting the rights to the song getting it released off their own back and donating the profits to the people who've suffered the attacks.

I think it's shameful that he not only wants it releasing again only to cash in on others misery but his macabre exchange has been aired publicly on TTY.

He'll be going the full Howard Hughes and keeping piss in jars soon.
