The Smiths – The Artist

The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The group consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke, and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them one of the most important bands to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s. In 2002, the NME named the Smiths “the artist to have had the most influence on the NME”.In 2003, all four of their albums appeared on Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. Based on the songwriting partnership of Morrissey and Marr, the Smiths’ focus on a guitar, bass, and drum sound, and their fusion of 1960s rock and post-punk, were a rejection of the synthesiser-based dance-pop of the time. Marr’s Rickenbacker guitar work had a jangle pop sound reminiscent of Roger McGuinn of the Byrds. Morrissey’s complex, literate lyrics combined themes about ordinary people with mordant humour.

Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now – The Song

“Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now” is a song by the English rock band the Smiths. Released as a single in May 1984, it reached No. 10 on the UK Singles Chart. The music was written by Johnny Marr in an hour in a New York hotel room on 2 January 1984, on a red Gibson ES-355 guitar that was bought for him that day by Seymour Stein, an American entrepreneur and music executive. The records picture cover features Viv Nicholson, who became famous in 1961 in the UK for winning a large amount of money on the football pools and then rapidly squandering it. The song’s title was inspired by Sandie Shaw’s 1969 single “Heaven Knows I’m Missing Him Now
