The Smiths are interviewed by Tony Wilson during rehearsals for the upcoming Meat Is Murder Tour (21 february 1985).
The Smiths is the eponymous debut studio album by English rock band the Smiths, released on 20 February 1984 by Rough Trade Records. After the original production by Troy Tate was felt to be inadequate, John Porter re-recorded the album in London, Manchester and Stockport during breaks in the band's UK tour during September 1983. The album was well received by critics and listeners, and reached number two on the UK Albums Chart, staying on the chart for 33 weeks

I have uploaded this rarely seen Spanish TV interview from 1985 . 4. Johnny, you once said that the notion of The Smiths as a group is more important than any single individual within it, how would you describe the group? What is that notion? What is the essence of The Smiths? 5. You’ve always been very confident about your music and never relied on publicity or external support, why is that? Is it because it comes directly from your soul?
Even Mozza's career has waned into boozy middle age. by contrast, their music together has transcended generations. The Smiths are true icons.
The Smiths then agreed to sign a record contract with Rough Trade, with Travis travelling up to Manchester to meet the band at their Crazy Face rehearsal space; there they signed the contract "The Smiths brought realism to their romance, and tempered their angst with the lightest of touches. In February 1984, the group released their debut album The Smiths, which reached number two on the UK Albums Chart.
Complete", however, is a profoundly inaccurate description. Louder Than Bombs augments the 12 core tracks with the America songs from Hatful of Hollow, along with the material from the "Sheila Take a Bow" single. It's much better sequenced than World, arranged into four six-song suites on the original double LP: hard-headed rockers about being a socially maladjusted freak (plus "Half a Person", a soft-skinned lament about the same thing); warped pop songs about frustrated desire (plus "Panic", a rewrite of T. Rex's "Metal Guru" about the same thing)
As Morrissey's Autobiography flies off the shelves, a publication he has clashed with in the past honours the Smiths' third album, writes Harriet Gibsone. The band's 1986 LP beat albums by the Beatles, the Stone Roses, Bob Dylan and David Bowie in the list of 500 albums, which was voted for by NME journalists past and present. Published in this week's magazine, each journalist's top 50 albums were awarded points, 50 being the number given to their No 1 choice.
The Smiths The Smiths were together for a little over five years, and their career moved at such incredible speed, even they sometimes struggled to keep up. This is very much the story of their debut album. Originally recorded with producer Troy Tate, Morrissey and Rough Trade were underwhelmed by what they heard and hired John Porter to fix it, who felt the album’s problems were so severe that it should be re-recorded from scratch.
