World’s Oldest Record Store Bans Morrissey Albums

24 Mai, 2019, 19:08 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Morrissey's music has officially been banned from Spillers Records in Cardiff, which is the oldest record store in the world, after the singer has continuously showed support for England's far-right.

This month, Morrissey endorsed For Britain, an extremist-fringe right-wing political party in the UK. He wore a badge of their logo in the midst of his Broadway residency and sported a For Britain pin during his Tonight Show performance.

Spillers' current owner Ashli Todd said: "I'm saddened but ultimately not surprised that Spillers is unable to stock Morrissey's releases any longer".

Morrissey has recently been criticised for his support of far-right party For Britain Movement, whose leader, Anne Marie Waters, is opposed to Islam.

Morrissey's never been shy about his political opinions, bigotry, and intolerance.

He initially shared his support for For Britain a year ago in an interview: "For Britain has received no media support and have even been dismissed with the usual childish "racist" accusation..." In 2010, while discussing animal cruelty in China he told The Guardian, "You can't help but feel the Chinese people are a subspecies".

Morrissey's covers album, "California Son", will be released on Friday and features his renditions of songs by Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Roy Orbison, Dionne Warwick and Carly Simon, and guest collaborators include Billie Joe Armstrong and Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste.
