MORE THAN A TRIBUTE

The band formed back in 2003 because of their passion for The Smiths. They didn't just want to be a tribute band - they wanted to play the music ofThe Smiths and recreate what is was to see and hear The Smiths live - it just happens that when you do that, the world calls you a tribute. For The Smyths that was a world of silly wigs and props - everything they felt a homage to The Smiths shouldn't be. So they spent a year rehearsing every week to make sure that when they launched it sounded genuine - The Smiths and their fans (like The Smyths) demand nothing less. They focussed on the sound and spirit of The Smiths live. Fast forward 11 years and some 500 shows later and they see and hear themselves now spoken of as being in the top tier of tributes globally. The years in between have seen The Smyths play throughout the UK, overseas and at major festivals such as Glastonbury. They've appeared on numerous TV and radio shows and many a newspaper column written. The word tribute has also developed and grown in respect in that time, coming to represent something that is not silly or trite but the best way to see and experience the music of bands no longer with The Smyths played by artists who are as passionate and dedicated to their shows as actors and actresses.
