Win my original ‘Strangeways, Here We Come’ Silver Disc
Hi everyone, big news! It’s 35 years since The Smiths’ final album ‘Strangeways, Here We Come’ was released and I’m giving you the chance to own a special piece of the group’s history.
I’m raffling my original silver disc that was presented to me when the album reached 60,000 sales. Rather than auctioning it to a wealthy collector I wanted to raffle it to give every Smiths fan a chance of owning it.
All the proceeds generated will go to raise money for Back on Track, a Manchester charity that I’m a patron of. I’ve worked with Back on Track on several projects over the last few years and I’ve seen for myself the difference they make. They’re currently supporting so many people struggling with the cost of living crisis and I wanted to do what I could to help.
To enter all you have to do is buy a £5 raffle ticket via Back on Track’s Just Giving page...
Quite an interesting take on the reaction video, as this guy uses some music software to analyse the mix. No idea how accurate his assumptions are, (I don't think even Street and Marr can remember/agree exactly what they did at the time) but interesting to hear it pulled apart.
