RIP. I used to scour record stores/flea markets/NME ads to find any Smiths bootlegs. I remember listening to college radio stations hearing an odd live version of "How Soon Is Now" and my mind was blown.....Just different times back then......
Stumbled across this site and ordered recently, quality merch. They have a Smiths shirt up (and have other bands up like New Order, etc)

I thought the show started out pretty good.....and then I was thinking between the "Shoplifters" movie and now this, perhaps there is "talk" of a reunion......but, wow, the ending did not go as I thought it would!
I watched it....it was fine. Is it cheesy?....yes. Is it gonna win a bunch of Oscars?...no.
Enjoy a glass of wine and watch it.....its mindless entertainment in the middle of a pandemic.
Also, it beats another Halloween or insert-whatever-movie-du-jour Hollywood remakes too soon after the...
Kevin Seal was the original host, no?....he was there in late 80s for sure....then Dave took over....but also recall Lewis Largent when grunge started getting big. Introduced me to a lot of good music for sure.
Had to go find some clips....Kevin was SUCH an a$$:
I was always chuffed they released "Rank" and it wasn't the whole show....it would be great if these were the missing tracks.
All I know is that The Replacements have been going into the archives (or their label has been) and they are releasing tons of material of late....there is even a "lost"...
