Geoff Travis on the Morrissey of today

(Originally posted in the Strange/unexpected Moz references? thread)

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 doubt it honestly. Morrissey strikes me as emotional and impulsive, and not really the rational type. I also doubt he can easily persuaded to change his (political) views. He is very hard headed, that has worked in his favor at times, though not always. I also can't help noticing a pattern in his behavior, where he says something shocking and is probably aware of it, and then shuts himself completely off when the shit storm hits. That's how he behaves publicly, and I struggle to think he would be different privately, but this is just my opinion and I don't claim to know him. If we are lucky, he'll write a great song about being hated on social media, like Speedway and Maladjusted before (to name a few).
There is a strong possibility that you're right - I'm still holding out hope though (I just couldn't live like that & I can't imagine how he can stand it) & yes, he probably will write a good song about it.

Wait a minute, the Saudis sponsoring ultra-conservative Islam in Europe is a fact that is true. The Saudis sponsored the main mosque here in Brussels for decades, and everybody knew it. But our lame politicians didn't act….until the terrorist attacks of 2016. Saudi Arabia really has an ugly regime, but they are very rich and influential.
I know they do throw their money about - I'm just saying that they won't take over Europe that way.

Every food item americans pay for a part of it goes to wealthy jews but you'd have known that if you weren't a lying cheating jew wanting to hide that fact from the public.
Not only is that an untrue & horrible thing to say, it doesn't even have any internal logic.

They don't have 'such powerful organisations' & I'm not out of my depth.
You know I can list them for you and one in particular and now you are just being infantile to the point of you throwing yourself on the floor screaming.

Not even you believe that and I know you know better. I was kind to you saying you are out of your depth but now I need new words to describe it.

You simply haven't got a clue what you are talking about and have no idea how much you provoke people out there who know about these things. The jewish mass meetings of power are public and reported on mainstream news.

Study the jewish system that means every food item in USA that you pay for means money ends up in jewish pockets.

Google kosher tax as one example. Look at your food items and find the symbol on it.

Everything they say about the jews is correct and more.

Yes, I agree that his apocalyptic views are over the top, at least for now.
At least for now!

LOL

The only thing on the mind of the saudis now is making Man United the greatest football club in the world again. Deal done but taking forever to present due to political reasons and details.

I wonder how they are going to wrap it all up in a presentable way next year. That spin doctor haven't yet been born that could pull it off.

LOL
 
They don't run entertainment & they don't use it for propaganda. It just happens to be a profession that was was always open to Jewish people when other professions were closed or difficult to prosper in. It's also why there used to be so many gay people in the arts.
No it's more than that and they absolutely do run pretty much every major movie studio and record label which is always been a conduit for propaganda. You're either being niave or dishonest

Not naive they are jews. There are more jews around than they publically admit. This website like many others is filled with posts from the jewish cyber room of Israel used to influence public opinion.

He did have a few years back, think thas why he has to cancell so many shows??
It was candida overgrowth of the throat but the swedes cured it in Stockholm.



Morrissey in front of Stockholm Stream not far from Grand Hotel where he always stays when in the city. He was a little frail but ok despite the quite gruesome treatment down his throat.

When they scrape "cancer" they scrape candida also falsely called thrush. The same method as when you scrape your tongue from candida which makes the tongue grey or white.

It isn't more than that. Individual Jewish people still do very well in the entertainment industry, but everything is owned by huge conglomerates that are not Jewish dominated. The 'propaganda' you're on about is just the standard liberal views of a liberal industry.

Making it easier for a consumer to buy a product isn't a tax. Vegans & Vegetarians aren't running a racket every time you see a V on a packet.
How stupid are you on a scale?

They add it to more than kosher and in fact everything americans buy goes down the pockets of those jews. Your refusal to study it tells me all I need to know. Even CBS 60 minutes told the truth about it long ago.

I know americans are illiterate and stupid but blimey.

I wish it was one of those but people like you call everything that which questions your view on the world.

How warm is the Israel cyber room this time of year. Say hello to the rest of the staff. Another new nickname pops up.

When will people ever believe me?
