The Smiths is probably the most important alternative rock band to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s, the one truly vital voice of the ’80s and the most influential British guitar group of that decade. We would add the fact that this band were the first indie outsiders to achieve mainstream success on their own terms. This success is based in the powerful partnership formed by songwriter/singer Morrissey -one of the most controversial musicians ever- and guitar player Johnny Marr.

That’s why a lot of bands and singers from the 90’s and the XXI Century usually play versions of The Smiths most influential songs. Some of them are included in our monthly Playlist, dedicated exclusively to The Smiths covers: Death Cab For Cutie, Eurythmics, She & Him, Kristy MacColl, Gene Loves Jezebel…
