    saw the smyths last night... kin amazing..... always been a bit sceptical about these sort of things and thought it would be a bit like disco kareoke or something.... absolutly spot on tho....

    and if a double decker bus crashes into us , to die by your side, what a heavenly way to die !

    Did you feel like slitting your throat.?
    Most miserable band ever known to man.
    Their music depresses me big time.
    Hope you enjoyed it though. -

    RE: Best band of the 80's.

    Smiths weren't depressing... I remember seeing them on TOTP with This Charming Man and being blown away and have been a massive fan of the band since. If you ever had the chance to see the Smiths or Moz live you would possibly change your mind.

    Skeptically, I went to see the "Australian Doors"

    ...and they were good! Hurray the tribute.

    There's a festival somewhere where all the acts are tributes. Sort of like the best festival ever, so long as you stand sufficiently far away from the stage to not notice.

    Tina !

    the rant of someone who hasnt actually listened to any of the smiths songs... full of humour and wit if you'd care to open your ears and listen instead of regurgatating popular opinion
