Morrissey has taken the slightly bizarre business decision to sign albums by other musicians and sell them for an extraordinary profit.
The sale was noticed at one of Morrissey’s recent live shows when it appears that the former Smiths frontman has personally signed albums by Lou Reed, David Bowie, Patti Smith and Iggy Pop and is selling that as part of his merch table for an eye-watering $300.
Images began surfacing online after fans posted pictures of the remarkable attempt to make money via the work of his peers. As part of Morrissey’s official merchandise table from his recent performance at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl on Saturday (October 26), Morrissey was selling copies of David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane, Patti Smith’s Horses, Lou Reed’s Transformer and Iggy and the Stooges’ Raw Power all for the extortionate price of $300 because they were “signed by Morrissey”.
The performance, which comes as part of Morrissey’s tour date alongside Interpol in support of new album California Son, also saw the singer don “fuck The Guardian” t-shirts which, incidentally, also made it onto his merch table.
