A look into the gear behind The Smiths, Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce - the original jangle rocking sad boys who won hearts the world over.
With an unmistakably honest sound and provocative lyricism, The Smiths are arguably the most iconic indie-rock band of all time, with their legacy still having an impact on the music of today.
Despite intentionally giving themselves “the most ordinary name”, The Smiths produced a brand of genre and era-defining music, bridging the genre gap between the New-Wave and Britpop that flooded the British Isles in the ’70s and ‘90s, respectively. While playing a major role in the popularity of Indie music in the Western world, The Smiths themselves also evolved their sound throughout their discography. From the band that graced the stages of student music shows, to the sensations that took the world by storm – these are the musical tools that The Smiths called their own.
