Further to my earlier e-mail regarding These Charming Men (Smiths Tribute Band), I intend to present the lead singer with the following lines which I penned as a third verse to "I keep mine hidden" (b-side to Girlfriend in a Coma). Earlier supporters of this website will be aware of this verse, but perhaps the more recent supporters will enjoy it. Anyway, here goes.
Terribly teen, unfashionably clean,
I'm a prehistoric, misanthropic vanity queen
from a place where to be loved meant to be hated.
I would greatly appreciate any responses you might have. The gig, by the way, is on in Dolan's Warehouse, Limerick, Ireland on thursday Feb 11. I was there last saturday to see the tribute band Secret Police. They were surprisingly good, and hopefully this bodes well for thursday. I remember seeing another Smiths Tribute band The Still Ills, and found them good, though not overly so, at least not the singer.
