A huge slice of subjectivity with a comment on each track from 72->1.

haven’t seen most of these photos before and it’s all very atmospheric with the soundcheck too. there’s a description on the video explaining the story behind them.

I'm certain the person running that page frequents here, but wouldn't mind these being reproduced here for discussion as they are interesting to say the least.
Also, credit to Gary Gittings for sharing them there - I hope his caps lock button gets fixed soon :)

Hopefully, the FB crappy image compression doesn't ruin them.

Found this on the Oasis subreddit. Somehow, it works…

I like it! This article explains how this was accomplished. Did you know This Charming Man and Live Forever have the same chord structure? Coincidence??

Excerpt posted by SuedeMoz:

Random question: Would you rather see a Smiths reunion or a Talking Heads reunion?
Oh, shoot. Shoot. I think a Smiths reunion because the Talking Heads reunited for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Sure, but it was three songs 17 years ago.
Yeah, but you can see what it looked like. That’s something. To me, because the Smiths seems more impossible, that’s why it’s like, “Oh, my God.” People would freak out. Can you imagine the venue they would play? I actually think they could play a football stadiums.

I think they could do 20 nights at Wembley Stadium, minimum.
Yeah! People would freak out!

I think these are beefs that go back decades and often they are tied up in legal issues that really cause insane bitterness....
