Oldest record shop in the world has stopped selling Morrissey's music

23 May 2019, 11:24 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

The oldest record shop in the world has stopped selling Morrissey's music due to his continued support towards For Britain.

Spillers Records in Cardiff is the oldest record shop in the world, and has officially banned Morrissey's music from their store.

Record shop owner Ashli Todd said to Wales Online, "I'm saddened but ultimately not surprised that Spillers is unable to stock Morrissey’s releases any longer. I only wished I’d done it sooner."

Earlier this week For Britain leader Anne Marie Waters uploaded a video message thanking Morrissey for his continued support.

The former Smiths vocalist recently wore a For Britain badge while performing on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show.

Morrissey's new album California Son arrives tomorrow (24 May). Earlier this year, Broken Social Scene's Ariel Engle - who features on the record - revealed her opinion on Morrissey's political views, "The inflammatory things he says are not my politics. I think he’s completely out of line. I grew up around multiculturalism and I am the product of multiculturalism and immigration. I feel like I’ve been had, but it’s my fault."

Morrissey's California Son album is released tomorrow (24 May) via Etienne Records/BMG. He'll tour North America later this year. Find out more.
