The Smiths - Interview mp3 album
The Smiths is the eponymous debut studio album by English rock band the Smiths, released on 20 February 1984 by Rough Trade Records. After the original production by Troy Tate was felt to be inadequate, John Porter re-recorded the album in London, Manchester and Stockport during breaks in the band's UK tour during September 1983. The album was well received by critics and listeners, and reached number two on the UK Albums Chart, staying on the chart for 33 weeks
The Smiths were a British alternative rock band, formed in Manchester in 1982. Based on the song writing partnership of Morrissey (vocals) and Johnny Marr (guitar), the band also included Andy Rourke (bass) and Mike Joyce (drums) . and it's time the ordinary folks of the world showed their faces. Signing to indie label Rough Trade Records, they released their first single, "Hand in Glove", in May 1983. The record was championed by DJ John Peel, as were all of their later singles, but failed to chart. The album was followed the same year by the non-album singles "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" and "William, It Was Really Nothing", which featured "How Soon Is Now?" on its B-side.
The Smiths Album Art Lyrics. After signing a production deal with independent record label Rough Trade, the newly-formed indie rock band launched their self-titled debut album in early 1984. Originally scheduled to be released in late 1983, the release was pushed back due to a change in production and a subsequent re-recording of the entire album
Even Mozza's career has waned into boozy middle age. by contrast, their music together has transcended generations. The Smiths are true icons.
February 1983 i-D Magazine The earliest major interview of the Smiths. This one is so early, it even features first bassist Dale instead of Andy Rourke, and it refers to Morrissey as 'S'. Wonderful historical value. June 1983 Sounds - June 4, 1983 Morrissey and Johnny are interviewed by early Smiths-supporter Dave McCullough, who fuels the "child molester" accusations
