Frank Zappa on Los Angeles, and fads in America.
The Smiths is a new book of never-before-seen photographs of the influential band at their peak by Nalinee Darmrong with essays from Andy Bell of Erasure and music journalist Marc Spitz. Darmrong traveled with The Smiths during the Meat Is Murder and The Queen Is Dead tours in 1985–1986 capturing on-stage moments as well as more revealing candid shots. Some of the most interesting stuff is the ephemera – backstage passes, set lists, promo materials, clothing and letters. The book serves as a time capsule; chronicling everything about the much-loved Manchester bred voice of the ‘80s.
