April 2006. Doing the garden. Listening to my cousins Ipod.
First Of The Gang To Die was on it as part of the NOW compilation album for that year.
Until then I was not even aware of Moz/The Smiths except for the video for HSIN which I remembered as the one with the chimneys.
As the afternoon went on I kept repeating the track over and over.
Next day I had bought You Are The Quarry. One week later I had Ringleader.
27th April 06 - bought a ticket of a tout for £40 for Morrissey at Glasgow's Carling Academy
Since then....well, you can guess the rest.
How and when did you fall under his spell and what exactly is it about him that we ALL find so facinating?
