Morrissey banned from record shop

Kill me

Aren’t Kasabian from Leicester??

Seeing Ian Curtis on a Madchester lads lads lads poster is weirder than seeing Moz on there, even if JD were by all accounts a reasonably laddy bunch at the time

Panther Party’s a right banger so I must remember to watch this vid later

Yep, but they affect a manc-swagger.

Yeah but they’ve always pretended to be Mancs

Yeah, that’s recent, sure it used to have Shaun Ryder on there

Just the best posters

Ooh I was in there at lunchtime. Bought Gwenno - Le Kov and Aldous Harding - Designer if anyones interested. Cracking shop. Long live Spillers :smile:

This is good news, but the headline on that article is really poor.

Spillers haven’t ‘banned’ Morrissey; they’ve just taken a decision not to stock his records - as is their right, obviously.

I know, it’s baffling why he does things to get his name thrown about a lot whenever he’s got a new record out.

Love Spillers - best shop in Cardiff.

…and in case no one has already said it: Fuck Morrisey

I bet Ashli and her team are getting outrageous shit on Twitter about this.

(I wouldn’t be surprised if this is just them choosing not to stock his latest and it being spun into being BANNED)

That’s pretty much it by the sounds of it.

there was a queue at lunchtime, lots of angry middle aged blokes with quiffs

Aye, I often see friends overreacting to stories with headlines like ‘Using words Mum and Dad BANNED in French schools’ and then I have to google it and tell them that they’ve actually just changed the wording on a form

Probably just a decent financial decision not to stock a pointless half arsed collection of cover versions by a racist idiot.

Same with me basically. As a youngster we used to walk past thinking it was a bit of a weird place but fell in love as soon as I found you could rock up and ask for random stuff I’d read about in the NME or Melody Maker and they had it - every single time. In that tiny old shop with shelves out the back. Much of my knowledge of 90s punk is from diving through the punk section and getting whatever I fancied.

I have also met James Dean Bradfield in Spillers - twice.

I’d guess he’s not short of a bob or two so he probably isn’t bothered. He obviously feels strongly about his views so he’s just expressing them.

I see they’ve taken the approach of retweeting all the crybabies on Twitter. Not a single fuck given. Nice.

because he knows enough of his fanbase will still put him above their own principles
