The Smiths: The Day I Was There
this day in music
With fans recalling memories of the earliest Smiths shows at UK clubs, you’ll see a portrait of The Smiths from the fans’ perspective with personal photographs, memorabilia, fascinating anecdotes and previously unpublished fan stories.
Based on the songwriting partnership of Morrissey and Marr, The Smiths are one of the most important bands to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s. All four of their studio albums reached the top five of the UK album charts, with ‘Meat is Murder’ hitting number one. They remain cult favourites despite the longstanding rift between Morrissey and Johnny Marr.
