THE SMITHS TOP 100 RARITIES
Those years we spent together were beautiful indeed, around the age of thirteen or fourteen, but then I grew up a bit and discovered sex and drugs. And a whole bunch of other music that was way more exciting, dramatic and sexy. Hence the idea of the Smiths in dub – a silly, facetious notion for sure, taking one of the whitest bands of all time and daring to process them through a hash-clogged Black Ark desk. Thanks to that miracle of the modern age, the Internet, once this was brought to my attention I was able to go online and track these elusive remixes down straight away. Both have been uploaded to YouTube by TheStaticAirwaves , who adds some more info in the description box:. Kevorkian geared the song for nightclub dancefloors, and the track was intended to be pressed in limited numbers for New York club DJs. Morrissey publicly disowned the mix, and urged fans not to purchase copies. Francois Kevorkian aka Francois K is a legend in disco and deep house circles, both for his early remix work for the classic Prelude label, but also for his own tech -and-house productions for his own label Wave. Needless to say the Smiths fans were not amused.

Page 2 of 3 — “You can mythologize him and treat him as a hero, but Morrissey is the anti-rock star,” says Luke O’Neil, the year-old frontman of the Boston band the Good North, who organized and played a sold-out Smiths tribute show several months ago with another local band, the Information, at the Middle East.
Morrissey perfected that, but he was such a wit, no doubt from obsessing over Oscar Wilde, that he learned how to make all of that come across as charming as opposed to boorish. Lots of young bands owe everything to Morrissey. While the Smiths were staples on the UK charts, they never became a mainstream radio band stateside. People were turned on mainly through word of mouth, from record store clerks to curious young music fans to like-minded friends, with strong support from alternative and college radio.

The music video for which see below was one big flower-fest. Morrissey can be seen waving gladioli above his head, while the floor is carpeted, and the band strewn, with cut flowers. The flower symbolism was not lost on the audience either, who brought them to concerts to throw on stage. People assumed it was an Oscar Wilde homage but that was a bonus.
The flowers made the stage very treacherous if you were wearing moccasins, but they became emblematic, iconic. Morrissey was using those gladioli in a way that was far from fey, almost brandishing them. Morrissey provided flamboyance, the rest of us wore sweaters and provided a streetwise, gang aspect. For a time at least, flowers became synonymous with this excitingly original band who inspired a generation with their melodic, poetic music and charismatic delivery.
