Morrissey Central: "Viva Morrissey" - April 5, 2020


Links to Paul Blake's article (from Viva Morrissey cover band):

WELL, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?

In 2010, in the context of a discussion regarding China's animal welfare record, Morrissey described the treatment of animals in China as "absolutely horrific". Referring to news stories he'd read about animals in Chinese circuses and zoos, he'd remarked to an interviewer: "Did you see the thing on the news about their treatment of animals and animal welfare? Absolutely horrific. You can't help but feel that the Chinese are a subspecies", remarks which were deliberately and wilfully misrepresented, and met at the time with predictable (faux) outrage from all of the usual suspects.

Morrissey later qualified his remarks stating: "If anyone has seen the horrific and unwatchable footage of the Chinese cat and dog trade – animals skinned alive – then they could not possibly argue in favour of China as a caring nation. There are no animal protection laws in China and this results in the worst animal abuse and cruelty on the planet. It is indefensible."

I think it's obvious to any fair-minded person that Morrissey was referring specifically to the Chinese authorities, along with those engaged in, and actively encouraging this vile practice.

Since we now have strong evidence to suggest that Covid-19, also known as Coronavirus, emerged from a so-called 'wet market' in Wuhan, China, which advertised for sale a variety of live animals, multiple species, crammed together, slaughtered and sold in filthy conditions, contaminated with blood and faeces, including cats, dogs, bats, peacocks, otters, camels, koalas, wolf pups, and the endangered pangolin, all of which are eaten in China, shouldn't those who attacked Morrissey at the time, and those who have persistently ripped the words "the Chinese are a subspecies" from their original context, in an attempt to demonise him and characterise him as 'racist', now hang their heads in shame, and hasn't he been completely vindicated with regards to his remarks on this subject?

With the world in lockdown, and families and friends being torn asunder as the death toll rises, shouldn't we find some perspective, and recognise the spurious claims and allegations made against Morrissey for what they always were, a vindictive campaign carried out by those potential Mark Chapmans, the 'ex-fans', who, like spiteful children, take out their many disappointments in life on those they, quite irrationally, feel have let them down or not lived up to their impossible ideals, along with those who never liked him in the first place, who had always been far too eager to heap scorn upon him whenever and wherever the opportunity arose, simply because he'd held up a mirror and shown them who and what they are, for which, quite understandably, they never forgave him.

Please go vegan.

Apologies. I don't come on here regularly (certainly not on Christmas Day like yourself and Paul), so I don't always see the more bitter posts. However, compared to people like Paul, Skinny seems more rational. Of course, it's all relative on a site like this, where there aren't many balanced posters.
You won't catch me here (or anywhere on the internet) on Christmas Day. It was just mentioned a few days later that he had spent a big chunk of Christmas Day here, and the evidence was there for all to say. Sad (in the true sense of the word).

hey, seems my post wasn't allowed cos I posted a link to paul's band on facebook. haven't posted here before so don't know the rules lol I was just sayin, i'm friends with paul on facebook and he stopped doing his tribute band last year and has his own band now called interlude, so its not fair to say he isn't being himself or doesn't have his own life. anyway there are posts on the viva Morrissey page that say all this and will take you to his new band page.
Viva Morrissey are still gigging and are still together. They were meant to play a gig on 18th April at the Peer Hat in Manchester, but it was cancelled due to the ongoing lockdown.

Laughable. How many aliases is he going to try and post with? How stupid does he think people are?
What's laughable is more or less everything you've written on the last 2 pages, fits you perfectly. You could actually be talking about yourself. Can you not see, you idiot?
And you DO see anon & blocked content, but only when you want to, of course.
Guess you've been on here all day like always, wasting your pitiful life away?... while the rest of us manage to get out in the sunshine for our government approved exercise regime.
You should try it, you sad f***, instead of festering on here like some seriously bad odour.

Got to ask, if you had a choice, who would you rather spend time with? Skinny or this Paul chap?

You see this is one of the dangers of online life...it can backfire on you and before you know it your life's work of being evil on a website, can filter back to your employers...&/or even your wife's employers. Sobering thought, hopefully.

The man has spent 20 wasted years minding other people’s business, which is why his own life is now a tragic wreck.

I see the mods were quick to remove some info from that post...hope no-one took notes. I'd hate that info to fall into the wrong hands. That said, if you google the individual you can find the same stuff and employer website anyway, plus the name of the CEO. People, glass houses?

Just been reading some of the posts slagging off Paul Blake and they seem really unfair. I saw this chap at the Wembley after-party at the Garage in Islington and found his presence there intriguing. It was like having Morrissey in the room, enigmatically surveying the proceedings (which were pretty drunken and shambolic at times).

Morrissey was himself once an obsessed fan, and is many ways still is; he understands fandom and all it entails - good and bad. He even wrote a song about it on Strangeways. It is similar to a love affair, with all its idealisation, except with somebody who doesn't even know you exist. Its one-sidedness, however, is its great weakness.

This is why I feel that the current ex-fans who use Morrissey's 'racism' as an excuse to say they dislike him as a person now isn't very convincing. Moz has always given slightly edgy un-PC remarks which could perhaps be construed as 'racism' (if you are ultra-sensitive) but it was only in recent years of mass-media wokeness that any fans have chosen to be offended.

Love is a delicate thing. Some people age and grow bitter with their own lives, while Moz remains an eternal teenager in spirit. Perhaps this fact rankles with a minority of long-term fans.

I’m amazed, but delighted to hear, that The Garage in Islington is still open.

Went after the Depeche Mode gig in London three years ago, the same night as the London Bridge attacks. Cracking venue, but a weird night

It was a good night, insomuch that we got there and enjoyed the music only for my voicemails, missed calls, texts and facebook inbox to be flooded by friends and family asking if i was ok! I had no idea what had happened.

The only sour note was when we left at the end of the club night, the doormen would not wait with us until we flagged a taxi down. That's alright pal, you wait behind the double glazing windows with your all black uniform and yellow SLA arm wallet whilst i stand on the street hoping the car that picks me up outside is a nice taxi driver who is not a racist (sadly, i can confirm he was a racist).
