No WAY have I not blogged since February? Really!? Ridiculous. Okay that ends NOW ...
So, The Smiths, like The Beatles if we're honest, and I guess The Prodigy too, are a band that there is just no point in trying to cover. But people still do of course, and the results vary from the ridiculous ...
... to the sublime ...
... and occasionally both.
So what the hell, for those occasional Scott Matthews moments it's worth a shot. Which is why I will be in excitable attendance this week at an evening of Smiths and Morrissey covers. Here's the blurb ...
DESIGNER MAGAZINE PRESENTS........ WILLIAM IT WAS REALLY NOTHING
THURSDAY APRIL 28TH
Adv tickets £5 from We Got Tickets and See Tickets
We don't care for the Royal Family and we certainly don't have time for a Royal Wedding.
But we're sure as hell going to make the most of an extra day of work and what better way to do so than with a special evening with five of our favourite Manchester bands selecting 1 or 2 of their favourite Smiths / Morrissey songs to cover in their own unique interpretations as well as the highlights of their original material.
Inbetween bands we'll have quality tuneage from the bands that inspired the Smiths and the bands that were inspired by The Smiths so expect everything from Bowie, New York Dolls and T Rex to Gene, Belle & Sebastian, Echobelly
