Today we will be talking about one of the most important bands that came out of the 1980s British indie music scene and that band is The Smiths their debut album “The Smiths” was released 40 years ago.

The album is like listening to them live as the same would be said about The Doors with their debut album as well. The Smiths took the Manchester scene and the British scene by storm with their sounding completely different sound from what was going on with the music scene in the UK in the mid-1980s where everything sounded like pop music.

Another thing that will make people do a double take is the hits the album has with such classics as ” You’ve Got Everything Now,” “Hand In Glove,” and “I Don’t Owe You Anything” were all banger in their own right. The album debuted at number 2 on the UK album charts and went on to get gold certified. The album cover is of Joe D’Allesandro from Andy Warhol’s 1968 film Flesh and he is also part of Warhol’s Superstar.

Take the time to listen to this album and enjoy an important album.
