    Rough around the edges: Former Smiths record label manager talks about his latest batch of Irish acts

    "The first question you must of course ask Geoff Travis is what he thinks of Morrissey’s ongoing descent into far-right notoriety. Back in 1980s Travis discovered The Smiths and, with his record label Rough Trade, helped propel Moz toward gladioli-flourishing immortality. How long ago that must seem — how bittersweet the memories.

    “Not bitter, no,” says Travis. “It was one of those periods that went by in a flash. Morrissey wasn’t the person he now seems to be. He was an interesting character to be around. As a band, The Smiths were an unstoppable force. A lot of years have gone by. I don’t think I’d recognise the Morrissey of today. It’s sad what he’s become, in terms of his views.”"

      Are you a femoid by any chance? Because you're certainly acting like one.

      Sasha is a lovely man & all he's advocating is for platforms to be treated as publishers, so that some standards apply.

      It would be fun to have your brain and eyes for 5 minutes and look at the world all distorted and unable to see reality. I bet a lot of people have tried to tell you things between the lines but failed.

      Taking as long as you did yo answer tells me all I need to know cause despite taking your time that was all you could come up with.

      Thanks for providing almost endless entertainment here.
