The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The group consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them one of the most important bands to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s. In 2002, NME named the Smiths "the artists to have had the most influence on the NME". In 2003, four of the band's albums appeared on Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

Gorgeous, nonchalant, sly & cruel, Morrissey. was the ultimate human incarnation of a cat. To him, the others were merely props on his stage. This was an attitude that grated them all, especially Johnny Marr. Even Mozza's career has waned into boozy middle age. by contrast, their music together has transcended generations. The Smiths are true icons.

Morrissey wields a protestor’s placard bearing the title of The Smiths anarchic ‘Queen is Dead’ tour and album. Wright has said of the image, It’s funny that one posed shot on an incredibly dark day in Salford has continued to pleasantly haunt me.
Morrissey's full name is Steven Patrick Morrissey. Johnny Marr's real name is John Maher, but he changed it to avoid confusion with The Buzzcocks' drummer of the same name. Morrissey claimed that the band called themselves The Smiths because "it was the most ordinary name" that they could think of, adding: "I think it's time the ordinary folk of the world showed their faces. This came at a time when there were many pretentious names in pop, including Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Depeche Mode and Spandau Ballet.
Marr's inventive songwriting was made all the more original and innovative by Morrissey's crooning and lyrics. Writing about unconventional topics, from homosexuality ("Hand in Glove") to child molestation and murder, Morrissey had a distinctively ironic, witty, and literate viewpoint whose strangeness was accentuated by his off-kilter voice, which would move from a croon to a yelp in a matter of seconds. While the production of The Smiths is a little pristine, the songs are vital and alive, developing a new, unique voice within pop music
