The Smiths
Strangeways Here We Come

This 1987 album was the final chapter for one of the most prodigiously brilliant and era-defining bands of the 80s. It tends to steer away from the jangly guitar style that Johnny Marr was best known for, with more varied production than before. Hence, the glam stomp of I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish, the proggy jam Death of a Disco Dancer, and the extended-intro, string-laden Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me. Morrissey was melodically impressive as well as genuinely witty and capable of human empathy in these good old days, and I Won’t Share You ends the album and the band’s career with a sad and touching sentiment. Rourke and Joyce rarely get the plaudits they deserve, but as ever The Smiths sound like a proper four-piece. May they never ruin their legacy by reforming, and we can remember and still enjoy them like this.

Freak Party featuring Angie Brown
Firefly

Freak Party may be a name that means nothing to you, but it just so happens that this is the original line-up of The Smiths, before Mr Morrissey got involved. Firefly and B-side ‘Don’t Push Your Luck’ have never been released before and were thought lost, but they’ve been found and remastered, with the surprise addition of Angie Brown’s soul vocals. 7” on Nova.

Johnny Marr
Call The Comet

Johnny Marr is nothing if not confident. In a recent Uncut interview he described this, his third solo album, as the best thing he's ever worked on. Therefore I'm really looking forward to hearing a record that is better than Meat is Murder. Still, he's pretty much the only Smith it's now ok to like so he's always welcome round here.

Morrissey
Low In High School

Once something of a hero yet now an actual idiot, the announcement of a new Morrissey album still manages to rustle up some kind of excitement in a world of increasingly homogenous and uninteresting pop stars. Giving a rare voice in the indie world to right-leaning Brexiteers and Farage acolytes, fans will hope that there's something left in the old quiff before it flops off completely.    

Morrissey
Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up on the Stage / You'll Be Gone (Live)

Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s On Stage is the second single to be taken from Morrissey's Low In High School album, his first since 2014, which is being met with a mix of excited anticipation and ambivalence. It will be backed with a live version of You’ll Be Gone. Limited edition 7” on the massive BMG label.

Morrissey
Spent The Day In Bed

Spent The Day In Bed is the new single from Morrissey. He used to be in a band called The Smiths but has since made quite a few solo albums…..Anyway, the single is the first track to be lifted from his new album Low In High School. The 7” is pressed onto clear vinyl and is backed with a live version of the Ramones classic, Judy Is a Punk.

The Smiths
The Queen Is Dead (2017 Master) [Deluxe Edition]

Another magical example of when a single LP gets turned into a 5LP box set. The Smiths 4th best album finally gets the big set treatment with demos, b-sides live tracks and a DVD featuring Derek Jarman's short film made to accompany the original release. A must for all fans of this most special of bands. "Slip them into different sleeves! Buy both, and feel deceived".

The Smiths
The Queen is Dead

'The Queen Is Dead' is thought by many to be the Smiths greatest achievement. Not for me, nothing with 'Vicar In A Tutu' on it should ever be considered a classic. However it does contain many of their greatest moments, the title track, 'There is a Light....' and 'Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others' to name but three. The Smiths at their confident best just before things started to go slightly wrong.

The Smiths
The Smiths

The Smiths must have sounded like nothing else in 1983. The band were a live tour de force but also poetic and lyrical. The Smiths was their murky debut and contains several future classics. Match the Byrds like guitar playing and a particular kind of Manchester melancholy with a vocalist who sounds like a demented seal and there you have it. Total brilliance.

The Smiths
Hatful of Hollow

'Hatful of Hollow' was a wonderful compilation of the Smiths earliest moments with many tracks taken from John Peel sessions. This gives them a rawer feel to their album contemporaries but unlike many session compilations this works pretty brilliantly as an album. It also contains early singles and B sides showcasing some of their very best songs such as "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", "William, It Was Really Nothing", "Girl Afraid" and "How Soon Is Now? Utterly, utterly essential.

The Smiths
Meat is Murder

Never widely considered to be their best album but this is a superb effort. It contains one of their most unusual and memorable songs in 'The Headmasters Ritual', add in to that the twin rainy day melancholy ballads 'Well I Wonder' and 'That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore', the surprising funk workouts of 'Barbarism Begins At Home' and the disturbing title track and there's half a great album already. They simply redefined what pop could and should be.
