California Sun is my least listened-to Morrissey album by miles. I didn't buy it and I only listened to it twice on Spotify. I don't think that Morrissey is racist, but he's become a deeply unpleasant man and that puts me off listening to it more, though the main reason why I don't listen to it is because I just don't think it's very good. Some of the original tracks are brilliant, but why would I want to listen to Morrissey's hoarse voice and average backing band cover them? I became a Morrissey fan primarily due to his wonderful songwriting which, obviously, isn't evident on a covers album.

You know all them vinyl charts you wank over. The small victories you celebrate when Moz tops them. The ones you don’t contribute to, cos you’ve never bought a f***in record in your life. Well, on behalf of me and every other collector doing their bit, you’re welcome.

There's a difference between fans and collectors. You do it because you're an obsessive. It's a hobby. Fans go to concerts, buy the records and will support the artist through thick and thin. They have a genuine like/love for the artist. You keep buying the records because it would disrupt your collection.

You haven’t got a f***in clue about me or how much of a fan I am. I hardly buy records cos I hate the artist and their music. Trust me, I’ve got as much enthusiasm & love for the Smiths & morrisseys music as anyone on here. :thumb:
 

The Truth

about Ruth
Fan or collector, either one can be a sort of sickness, whether you are the type of fan who thinks you have some kind of bond with the artist or if you are the type of collector that must have a complete collection.

I came out of Morrissey's head.

It was GLORIOUS. And he's EVER so proud of me and my sensuous AFRO.

Now put the f***ing drink down before I kick you in the f***ing ass.

is this Pete his manager?

if you had an Afro u wont be wasting your time with Moz

He deserves every misfortune coming his way, and he is now discovering that people vote with their money.

Tough shit.

I mean, who would have thought that supporting a far-right organisation in the twilight of your career would cause another precipitous drop in support and revenue? It's almost as if the buying public have had enough.

f*** racists. f*** Morrissey.

Writers on the storm
Can't we just all agree that "California Suck" does just that? It sucks folks. Johnny Marr would have punched Morrissey in his face and then quit if Moz handed him those songs for a new Smiths album. Just awful music and it doesn't make you any less of fan to state that obvious fact.

And I am not sure why it comes as some kind of surprise to some that it left the top 200 so quickly. The fervent Moz fans and collectors of everything ever released by the man made their purchases in week one. After the Tonight Show appearance, and forget the pin, just the song itself would be enough to prevent any casual fan from purchasing the record. He made the record he wanted, and got the result that fit the product he presented...nothing more.

Morrissey is NOT a racist. What is wrong with all of you?

so wrongly claiming Germany is rape capital 'cause of "immigrants" isn't racist? So the fact Morrissey is for a party that is anti-Muslim (and if you know anything about the party you know they are ) isn't racist?

You see the weight of data proves that moz is anti Muslim and so a racist. Personally, I don't care but of course, he is, if the weight of evidence was on anyone else, you would say " f*** that racist " .
You can say "Muslim" isn't a race but you know its a weak defence.
If you follow his gay friend James Maker over the years he has also said anti-Muslim things .

First Moz supports Nigel Farage a complete ass , who is pro Trump and used to mix with a proper English racist party The National Front. Then he starts spouting Trump like idea's about Germany being "rape capital " and also poking fun at the Muslim mayor of London (Trump also mocks the mayor of London)
Moz is now very Pro Israel (mainly for his "careers " sake but still) the Jews, of course, loath Muslims and what does moz sing about on his last Lp( leaving aside the covers lp?) oh yes Israel and Tel Aviv

So moz likes to support Nigel Farage , racist . He mocks the Muslim mayor of London and supports a party that is anti muslim. Racist.
He also suddenly after 30 years in the business starts singing about his love for Israel, at the same time he gets a Jewish manager.
For Britain are also funded by Israel (so is Tommy Robson) . Lots of us think Moz is now just another shill for Israel which is why all this Britain First stuff started. The fact that he is now just another shill is worse than him being a racist to some of us .

Actual evidence has been there for some time re Moz's racism. In fact since his letters to his pen pal (pre smiths) where he plainly says "I don't like Pakistanis ". So you see racist . The fact you say you have the skin color of a chocolate drop doesn't mean shit . Just 'cause a black person doesn't think someone is racist doesn't mean shit

You can argue with whats said but its true. Just look at his fans he's left with , not very intelligent people from America's . The kid with the big car . cap and tshirt . That type . nothing against the kid but shit moz you had it all, now you have that type and dumb ass racists on here.


Its a shame.

Even if Morrissey was a racist, so what? What's the problem?
