Henry Holland: radiovox: Oh fark The Smiths. They lasted all of about 30 seconds in the 80's and the only ones who listened to them back then were the kids in high school who were just trying to be cooler than thou...sorta like today's hipsters.Ding! Wrong answer! Speaking for myself and my friends that were Smiths fans, we listened to them because they had Marr writing excellent jangly 60's-tinged music, a kick-ass rhythm section and Morrissey's lyrics, which spoke to us shy, lonely bookworms. Plus, in 1984, they were an oasis, a guitar band in a sea of Boy George, Wham!, Madonna and False Metal.So what if Moz has become a bit like a deranged uncle who nobody wants to confront at family picnics, because what do you say to a grown man with a cat on his head?
Maynotlast: There's still a "Coachella?"
