Today is The Queen Is Dead day. 09:14 - Oct 20 with 3823 viewsSuperfrans

Today, I will be mostly listening to the new deluxe reissue.

Any of you youngsters out there who weren't around when The Smiths first emerged, do yourself a favour and give it a listen. Turn on to Spotify and have a listen to the new Deluxe version of what, for my money, is the best album of the Eighties.

Such a crying shame that nobody is serving young music fans with anything like this today.

lol at thinking the Arctic Monkeys arent better than the Smiths.

Now, Betty, I have very important work to do. My ascension removes me from the disc and the loop. I'm near final stage. Some mornings, I can see the infernal plane.

I suppose you have a point there in that the Arctic Monkeys arent like the Smiths they are, in fact, much much better.

Sadly, I just don't believe it is - I've certainly heard no evidence of it.

There are very few acts in the past 30 years who have got close to breaking new ground in the way the Smiths did, speaking for the dispossessed in the way they did, challenging conventions of lyric writing, musicianship, challenging the industry status quo etc etc. That's why they endure the way they do and why so many Smiths fans gloss over so much of Morrissey's craziness, because he gave voice to so many who were previously unspoken for.

You'll notice I said "very few acts", not "no acts".

Grime is the nearest thing we have to a genre today breaking new ground. Totally.
Which is THE important artist though? Who has truly forged new ground in the genre?

Well grime as I understand it is a vast genre. It's not my thing so you will have to ask someone else about the important artists etc but if you are talking about the stuff you are talking about like speaking for the dispossessed new lyrical frontiers musicianship and changing the industry then it's a huge and obvious example.

Arctic Monkeys had one very good album and then turned to sh1t.

Their latest releases are the same droney sounding rubbish each time.

Correct there....first album brilliant...but I doubt their 3rd album will be re issued 30 years later.

Arctic Monkeys are my favourite band but the Smiths aren't far behind, the guitar parts are better though - This Charming Man and What Difference Does It Make are my ( somewhat obvious I know) favourites. I'd go as far as saying Johnny Marr is my favourite guitarist

They're a massively misunderstood band imho.

Many of my friends don't like them because "they sound so miserable and depressing".
But anyone who thinks there a bunch of miserablists should spend some time to listen to The Boy With The Thorn In His Side, one of the most joyous and uplifting tunes ever set to vinyl - and Morrissey's own personal favourite Smiths tune (at least that's what he thought in 1993). Or Bigmouth Strikes Again, or Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before, or Ask etc etc.

If anything, they're criminally under-rated... ;-)

Just to be clear, I'm not saying modern music is rubbish. There's plenty of great stuff around.

But music simply doesn't have the cultural importance today that it once did - and that's partly because its place in youth culture has become eroded, in turn because it isn't the means by which young people choose to vent their thoughts, emotions, frustrations, etc (as they once did).

The best band ever...the greatest of all time.
Two my favourite songs are b sides girl afraid and rubber ring...also arguably their most well known hit how soon is now was originally meant to be a b side.
They were also a singles band...panic....ask....shelia take a bow fantastic songs...none of them on their studio albums
I got into them 20 years ago and not a day has gone by where I haven't listen to them or mozza.
I can see how people perceive them as being morbid but there so not....or maybe I'm just a miserable c##t.
