The Smiths formed in Manchester in 1982 and quickly rose to become the quintessential British indie rock band of their day. Powered by the collaboration between lead singer and lyricist Morrissey and lead guitarist and co-songwriter Johnny Marr, their sound had a literary and musical depth that was complex, emotional and often controversial, at the same time, it rang with The Smiths' unique twist on timeless melodic pop sensibilities. Their rise also marked a break from the synthesizer-heavy pop and post-punk that had been defining U.K. music. 45 tracks Rhino UK.
