The Smiths Artist Snapshot:

Pair a disciple of Oscar Wilde (Morrissey) with an innovator of the electric guitar (Johnny Marr) and you have the most clever cult band of the 1980s, the Smiths. Though they made some of the most effortlessly catchy music of the era, the tension between the fey frontman and the rocker eventually doomed the band at its height. Marr now records sporadically with Bernard Sumner in Electronic, and Morrissey went on to have a long and equally cult-driven solo career, emerging as one of the most distinct icons in all of alternative rock.

Product Notes

This is the value of working at cross-purposes: The Smiths were Morrissey''s excuse to undulate his wry, disaffected lyrics, and Johnny Marr''s vehicle for his sharp, chiming, pop songs. Their favorite kind of compromise made them essentially a singles band, and The Queen Is Dead has a couple of their best (notably "The Boy with the Thorn in His Side," one of the greatest pop expressions of the Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name). But it also has some wonderful compromises of different kinds: the bizarrely romantic "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," and "Cemetry Gates," where Marr covers up for Morrissey''s floridity with shimmying rockabilly. --Douglas Wolk
