About this item

The definitive pictorial document of The Smiths, showcasing never-before-published photos of one of the most influential bands of the late twentieth century at the apex of its popularity.Today, The Smiths are considered one of the most influential rock bands of the late twentieth century. The fact that they disbanded—after a little more than four years and seventy songs—abruptly and explosively on the brink of becoming megastars, only adds to the rabid, cult devotion of their fans. Photographer Nalinee Darmrong traveled with and captured the band during its peak years:Meat is Murder and The Queen is Dead tours 1985–1986.This volume is filled reams of photographs of the band backstage and onstage, most unpublished; ephemera including original set lists, backstage passes, tickets, handcrafted promo materials; personal effects such as letters and clothing, and other items. The photographs impart a frenetic energy of the band during performances; and a private, almost familial chronicle of the band offstage and behind the scenes. Equal parts intimate time capsule and a love letter to The Smiths, the book is a look at this important band during the height of its creative period.
