“Unite and take over!”
For our latest upgraded and updated, deluxe Ultimate Music Guide, Uncut presents the complete story of The Smiths, as their epochal “The Queen Is Dead” celebrates its 30th anniversary.
From the archives of NME and Melody Maker, we’ve uncovered extraordinary interviews, unseen for years: “People are dedicated to us because we deserve it,” Morrissey is announcing, even before “This Charming Man” has become a hit.
Alongside all these classic quotefests, we have in-depth reviews of every Smiths and Morrissey album, forensic surveys of Johnny Marr’s post-Smiths career, an intro from Mike Joyce, and a necessarily contentious Top 30 Smiths songs… Plus: rare pictures, Smiths collectables and Morrissey’s remarkable letters to NME in full.
That’s The Ultimate Music Guide: The Smiths – You’ve got everything now!
