Harvest Records is taking a cue from the old adage “there is no such thing as bad publicity” and running with it.
After Morrissey dressed his backing band in “F— Harvest” T-shirts at his European tour opener in Lisbon Monday, referencing his ongoing feud with his former label Harvest/Capitol, Harvest records is now trying to cash in on the inflammatory sentiment by selling “F— Harvest” T-shirts of its own.
The Morrissey/Harvest battle began over the release of his solo album World Peace Is None of Your Business earlier this year. After the Moz complained about a lack of promotion, the album was removed from digital retailers and streaming services. In a recent interview with El Mundo, the artist complained that Harvest Records “does not like artists to give their opinion.”
