Morrissey merchandise will be on sale in his ‘Mpourium’ including limited T-shirts, vinyl, and his books for three days to coincide with the weekend that the singer is performing in Manchester.
Morrissey’s gig will take place on Saturday August 20th at Manchester Arena and the shop will open each day from August 19th to 21st.
Friday 19th August (10.30am – 4.30pm)
Saturday 20th August (10.30am – 4.30pm)
Sunday 21st August (10.30am – 3pm)
We will also be selling Salford Lads Club merchandise and showing a collection of photographs of Morrissey and Marr taken by fan, Colin Howe, in 1983. Colin will be here in person on Saturday 20th to sign books and posters.
Stephen Wright, photographer of the iconic picture of the Smiths outside SLC (used on the inside sleeve of the Queen is Dead) has generoulsy donated one of the original proofs sent to him by Rough Trade Records. This is now being auctioned on ebay with the money raised going to the club.
If you would like to help the club by making a bid for this very rare item please follow the link below.
It’s great to know we’re the coolest and most famous club in town!
We like Topman clothes, but is it cool of Topshop to use our name without asking us first? And we certainly don’t think it’s very cool of them to change our sign to “Topman Lads’ Club”. (see picture)
We think it would be nicer if they were more like our favourite topman, Morrissey, who recently gave us a cool £20,000 towards our £1,000,000 appeal. After all, Salford Lads’ Club is a registered charity with no guaranteed funding.
What do you think?
Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments and ideas and we’ll put the best ones up here and pass them on to Topshop.
Morrissey’s birthday events at Salford Lads’ Club got under way at 7am this morning with BBC Radio Manchester live outside the front door. It’s continued all day with fans from Sweden, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, USA ,Canada, Ireland and all parts of the UK. The weather was wet, wet, wet with the odd spot of sun, as the pictures show.
Smiths fans are organising a sponsored bike ride around Salford and Manchester to raise funds for the club whilst recreating the video for the song Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before. But will Morrissey be available reprise his role 20 years on?
