    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.”"

      I don’t worship the ground Moz walks on, sometimes I adore him especially his lyrics and sometimes I think..daft sod but FAR right, Hardly. I’ve been unfortunate enough to come across people who are far far right and they hardly compare to comments Moz has made, I think give the guy a break a bit now. Don’t like him fine but stop moaning and moaning on!

      Funny thing is, this is the ONLY post of mine that Trill hasn’t given a troll rating to.

      But he did give this post a troll rating immediately after.

      Good to see he’s mostly consistently a predictable bore.

      I've just discovered ignore. It has reached a point where it's worryingly obsessive & odd for someone who thinks people should be nice. At least I'm not alone.

      Moz just had two sold out tours. In a row.
      The ingrate Johnny Le Pew, meanwhile, took a beating in the box office. Word on the street is that his future legacy will be that no one will book him for fear of going bankrupt.
      He's done unfortunately.

      The list is endless & mostly unproven since he's always saying contradictory things but in general, it's that he supports Brexit, Anne Marie Waters & For Britain (Far Right, but he has said he thinks she's unifying the left & the right), Israel (he doesn't) & Harvey Weinstein & Kevin Spacey (he just speculated) & he's against Halal slaughter & open borders.

      He also seems to believe that crimes committed by Muslims are covered up by Western governments (they have been a little bit) & he recommended Douglas Murray, who believes that Saudi backed Islamic ultra-conservatives are taking over Europe aided by West-hating Marxists. Which is mad, but it's published by Bloomsbury, so I'd blame them rather than Morrissey.

      Well, didn’t Morrissey consider himself a Socialist back then? Far from what he is today, sadly.

      Skinny all this would be controversial in a world full of Skinny clones/fake usernames/aliases.

      I thought you were going off to tend to the PR 'firm' that is located in your cell phone.

      Didn't is correct as the man was never a socialist. His criticism of Maggie made you and others believe he was.

      I would imagine he would prefer the epithet of being 'anti-establishment' - he was back then and he remains so now.

      He will bring it up when his popularity falls, to garner pity and get his name into the press.
