I just noticed this on Bull Moose pre orders.. Has anyone heard of this?
The Smiths: 30 Years of the Queen is Dead - VideoETA
While the title may appear a little passe and the message somewhat less outrageous than it did 30 years ago, The Smiths' sophomore album remains among the finest pieces of musical work to appear during the eighties - if not the finest since punk and new wave broke in the mid to late '70s. And while our beloved premier (overseas readers excepted) may count it as one of his own fave raves, we won't let that put us off - most of us round here don't believe him anyway - being that such a fine and creative array of music is captured in its grooves. So in celebration and honour of this dynamic album's pearl jubilee comes this triple disc box set of DVDs. Featuring three separate films focussing on The Smiths in general, The Queen Is Dead album and the Morrissey/Marr angle too, all featuring a plethora of archive footage, exclusive and classic interviews, contributions from those who knew the group best plus lashings of the music that made it all come alive, these programs will delight and enthral all those still flying the flag for arguably one of the very finest UK bands ever.
