The Smiths Biography
Manchester legends The Smiths formed in 1982. Over thirty years later their music remains as important and interesting as it was throughout the 80s.
Driven by Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, they rejected the synthesised dance pop which was popular at the time. Morrissey's lyrics reflected the experiences of ordinary people in a poetic, engaging way, ensuring a fiercely loyal cult following.
