Editorial Reviews

Professional music authority Alan Cross writes and performs this concise introduction to one of the most pivotal bands in the history of American music: the Smiths, led by legendary singer Steven Patrick Morrissey. Cross’ narration is frank, fast-paced, and highly articulate, while his authoritative tone lends the information presented an air of definitive authenticity. Cross also succeeds in briefly and succinctly contextualizing the Smiths among both their contemporaries and, more broadly, the musical and aesthetic fads driving popular culture at the time of their rise to fame, giving listeners a good sense of how and why this band resonated and, indeed, continues to resonate with so many fans to this day.

Publisher's Summary

In this new audiobook, broadcaster and music writer Alan Cross narrates the definitive history of The Smiths. Cross succeeds once again in revealing the fascinating history behind the music in the same compelling way we've come to expect from his long broadcasting career.
