This June will see The British Music Experience play host to a musical event dedicated solely to 1980’s music maestros, The Smiths/Morrissey.
Headlining a full concert of the British pop/rock bands classics, the fantastic Viva Morrissey and his band will be entertaining die-hard fans on Friday 7th June with support from singer Leila Hunt from The Lazy Sunbathers. The event will also see interviews with Liverpudlian Smiths/Morrissey Authors sharing their own experiences and paying homage to the most important, intelligent, most idiosyncratically English, and most sorely missed pop band of the 1980’s.
Liverpudlian Author, Matthew Jacobson (‘Pieces of Morrissey), recalls;
“The Smiths were life changing. They arrived like an answered prayer. They arrived like a fully formed gang and I felt like I had a personal invitation from Morrissey to join them in their achingly beautiful world. The lyrics described the everyday, the bleakness, the grey domestic life and Northern realism. The lyrics made me laugh, cry and think at the same time. Accompanied by wonderful celebratory music The Smiths coloured in this grey world and made my world in the North, poetic and beautiful. They influenced a generation with a words, images and sounds. Even today, being a Smiths fan, is a way of life for me – and it always will be”
