I recall, as a 13-year old boy in 1985, buying two cassettes at WH Smith in Barnet High St, North London, one saturday afternoon. One was 'Behind The Sun' by Eric Clapton, the other was 'Meat Is Murder' by the Smiths. It's funny to recall in 2022 how, 12 months later, particularly on the back of hearing 'Marquee Moon' by Television and seeing The June Brides live at ULU (University of London Union, Malet St, London WC1, England), it could be said that the latter magnum opus (the best thing The Smiths ever did, in my opinion) simply totalled Clapton and one's other hideous, plainly uninformed listening options at the time - Dire Straits & Sting. As background: this credit-card rock destroying process had been generally engineered in the media by regularly listening to John Peel, 10-12 Mon-Thurs on Radio 1, along with reading weekly doses of The New Musical Express newspaper, all initially driven by an addiction to 'The Old Orange Flute' by The Dubliners as a very small, 7-8 year old boy; everything then creatively culminated in the publication of the first issue of 'The Main Street Journal' in London, England in the winter of 1993, which I co-edited and co-published, eight years later.

The Smiths Indeed were formed in Liverpool in 2005, after a deceptively placed advertisement caught the eye of an ambitious aficionado. The band consists of Smiths devotees and outstanding musicians. Their trump card is a singer with uncannily similar vocal chords to Morrissey's. In a relatively short space of time, The Smiths Indeed have emerged as a fantastic live act, aiming to capture the essence of a mid-1980s Smiths concert. Check out our YouTube channel, Buzz TV, and watch our short documentary where we go behind the scenes with the tribute band.

HALF A PERSON: MY LIFE AS TOLD BY THE SMITHS OPENS AT THE KING'S HEAD THEATRE IN LONDON ON JANUARY 26TH. Meet William, a twenty-something Londoner who drifts from coffee shop to bar, falling in love, self-obsessing and finding solace in The Smiths. Torn between conflicting loyalties to the girl of his dreams and his best friend, William has the chance to become more than half a person. Prior to this London season, Half a Person has been ‘tried out’ in various venues around the UK including a sell–out performance at The Lowry, in The Smiths’ hometown, Salford. An emotionally charged, coming-of-age story, blending wry comedy and the music of a beloved cult band, sung live. VISIT THE KING'S HEAD THEATRE'S WEBSITE TO BOOK TICKETS. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Dear all. I'm compiling a 80s indie youth style book called A Scene In Between due to released in September by Cicada Books. I'm looking for early photographs of the Smiths to feature in the book or snaps of yourself dressing like them from the time. Nothing after 87 considered i'm afraid. The more amateur the better as all the photos in the book are taken by music fans from the time not pro photographers. Please get in touch if you have anything of interest. Sam

The posters form part of the personal collection of a true Smiths’ fan, Marc Capella that likes to pay tribute to the band that believes has most successfully integrated graphic art, poetry, claim and music. The Value of the collection is priceless* and is the fruit over a decade of careful research. *In November 24th, 2008, Christie’s New York Art gallery sold at auction The Smiths first LP promotional poster reaching a winner bid of $563. Click for auction details The Smiths released their first single in May 1983 and broke up 4 years later in the summer of 1987. The summer of 2012 marks 25 years since their breakup. Marc Capella confesses “*Hatful of Hollow” LP, especially the song “Heaven knows I’m miserable now”, caused a turning point from then on the way he have thought and the way he have acted lately."
