The Smiths launch new interactive timeline on website
The Smiths have launched a new, interactive timeline on the band's official website.
Called 'The Interactive Sound Of The Smiths', the timeline offers the chance to "Explore the interactive world of The Smiths and discover the complete discography of one of the most influential British groups of a generation".
It lists key events in the band's career, from their first gig, at Manchester's Ritz in October 1992, through their first UK Top 30 chart hit with "This Charming Man" up to September 1987, when they officially disband. Subsequent archival reissues are also listed.
