A seminal 80s British indie band, The Smiths were centered around the intensely creative songwriting duo Morrissey (vocals, lyrics) and Johnny Marr (guitar, piano, music). Commonly associated with depressed, student-types, the Smiths are not timeless but are instead rather representative of life in the Thatcherian England of the 80's. With bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce filling out the line-up, the Smiths released 4 studio albums between 1984 and their split in 1987 after Marr's departure. The Queen is Dead is uniformly recognised as their pinnacle, though the 1984 eponymous debut might have been fierce competition had it not been marred by lo-fi production. A live album, Rank was released post-humously in 1988; several greatest hits and singles collections were released throughout the 90's. « hide
