More Songs That Saved Your Life : The Smyths

"The Smyths formed the band back in 2003 because of our passion for The Smiths.

They didn't just want to be a tribute band - they wanted to play the music of The 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 them that was a world of silly wigs and props - everything we felt a homage to The Smiths shouldn't be.

So they spent a year rehearsing every week to make sure that when they launched they sounded genuine - The Smiths and their fans demand nothing less.

They focused on the sound and spirit of The Smiths live.

Fast forward 11 years and some 500 shows later and they see and hear ourselves now spoken of as being in the top tier of tributes globally.

The years in between have seen them 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 us played by artists who are as passionate and dedicated to their shows as actors and actresses.

It's a pleasure and privilege for them to be seen as the foremost tribute to The Smiths."
