    A new biography about The Smiths, "The Smiths. Piosenki o twoim życiu" (eng. "The Smiths. Songs about your life"), will be published on the 20 April 2018 in Poland. It was written by Maciej Koprowicz, a journalist of, an alternative music radio station and website.


    Here's some information I found about the book:
    I'll probably make a purchase and if there will be something new or worth mentioning, which I honestly doubt, I'll make sure to write about it.

      Anyone else bored of seeing yet another reappearance of those early royalty-free photo-shoots?

      Speaking of which, I was reading Dale Hibbert's book and he mentioned an early photoshoot with him and Moz and Marr. He saw contact sheets but he maintains that those images were suppressed in order to give the impression that the 4 Smiths sprang to life fully-formed. Has anyone here ever seen those images??

      Never seen anything like that.
      He was meant to be present with Marr & Moz and included in an early '83 interview with I.D. Magazine, but no pictures there either.
      IIRC there are zero mentions of him in Autobiography and one passage from Johnny in Set The Boy Free basically saying he was a better sound engineer than bassist as he just didn't sound right.
      Some pictures from that era would be great.

      As I recall, they didn't like how Dale came across in that interview. Dale's obviously an intelligent and perceptive guy, his book contains interesting character insights on Moz and Marr. He thinks he was replaced by Andy, not only for the bass-playing but because Andy had a more malleable personality.

      I wish his fans weren't such deadbeat shut-ins. These endless fawning works of fag-hagiography are beyond tiresome.
