Join the community:

To conclude their Revisiting The Smiths series, Chris, Mike and James talk the band’s final full length, “Strangeways, Here We Come.” Between the music industry bashing of “Paint A Vulgar Picture,” the breakup writing-on-the-wall of “I Won’t Share You” and the bizarre “Girlfriend In A Coma,” there’s plenty to discuss. We end with some “Pick Your Poison,” debating the two Smiths tracks designated as “the worst.”

Note: We did record a segment on the developments regarding Brand New, but it was early in the news and much occurred after our recording. We decided to table it until the next episode.
