Spillers Records have banned Morrissey record’s from its store just in time for his 60th birthday.
The world’s oldest record store, located in Cardiff will not keep any of his records, this was according to Wales Online report. The decision was made because of Morrissey’s far-right political leanings.
As we heard via NME, Morrissey is standing strong with his support For Britain, an extremist-fringe right-wing political party in the UK. He was seen wearing a badge of their logo in NY while doing his residency gigs.
Mozza then wore a For Britain pin during his Tonight Show performance. Anne Marie Waters, For Britain’s founder, has shared a video thanking him.
Ashli Todd, the owner of Spiller’s, told Wales Online that he’s upset but not shocked that Spillers would not stock Morrissey’s records any longer and he wished he had taken action and done it sooner.
Morrissey has always been outspoken about his political opinions, coming across as intolerant on many occasions.
In a Guardian interview discussing China’s animal cruelty in 2010 he’s quoted as saying, “You can’t help but feel that the Chinese people are a subspecies.” Last year, the first time, Moz came out in support for For Britain he said in an interview:
“For Britain has received no media support and have even been dismissed with the usual childish ‘racist’ accusation…I don’t think the word ‘racist’ has any meaning any more, other than to say ‘you don’t agree with me, so you’re a racist.’ People can be utterly, utterly stupid.”
Morrissey is due to release his 12th solo studio album this week, and first-ever covers collection, California Son.
