A Light That Never Goes Out


Category: Books
Description: To this day, they were, their fans believe, the best band in the world. Critics and sales figures told a similar story. Yet for all their brilliance and adoration - their famously energetic live shows routinely interrupted by stage invasions - The Smiths were continually plagued by their reticence to play the game, and by the time of 1987's Strangeways Here We Come, they had split. Tony Fletcher's A Light That Never Goes Out - part celebration, part paean - moves from Manchester in the nineteenth-century to the present day to tell the complete story of The Smiths. The product of extensive research and unprecedented access, it will serve to confirm The Smiths as one of the most important and influential rock groups of all time.

The Smiths


Category: Books
Description: Today, The Smiths are considered one of the most influential rock bands of the late twentieth century. The fact that they disbanded-after a little more than four years and seventy songs-abruptly and explosively on the brink of becoming megastars, only adds to the rabid, cult devotion of their fans. Photographer Nalinee Darmrong traveled with and captured the band during its peak years: Meat Is Murder and The Queen Is Dead tours 1985-1986. This volume is filled with reams of photographs of the band backstage and onstage, most unpublished; ephemera including original set lists, backstage passes, tickets, and handcrafted promo materials; personal effects such as letters and clothing, and other items. The photographs impart the frenetic energy of the band during performances, and a private, almost familial chronicle of the band offstage and behind the scenes. Equal parts intimate time capsule and a love letter to The Smiths, the book is a look at this important band during the height of its creative period.
