Thread: The Smiths

  1. #1

    Default The Smiths

    Richard Blade (on XM) is pushing hard the rumor that the Smiths are reuniting to play Coachella this year. I wonder if this is going to be one of those last-minute things like Prince last year or whether it's just a rumor.

    Anyone else heard anything?

    By "pushing hard" you obvs mean that he may have almost mentioned it might be possible that one time.

    Every time he mentions it he says it is from a reliable source so he considers it more than a rumor but less than a fact. The "pushing hard" is a reference to his insistence that this is likely to happen.

    There is no need to interpret what I mean; just ask.

    I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure they were a popular 90's band. They sing that song "Do you believe in life after love..." or something like that.

    MORRISSEY AND JOHNNY MARR are to reunite. The Smiths are said to be on the verge of reforming after Morrissey and Johnny Marr settled their past differences.

    The band, who split in 1987, would likely embark on a series of live shows in 2009.

    A music industry source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The very fact that they are talking again is the most hopeful thing in years.

    "A lot of people think of them as the best thing since The Beatles. They'd fill stadiums many times over."

    In October, similar claims suggest the group were in talks to headline next April's Coachella Festival in California.

    A reformation of the band's original line up would mark the first time Morrissey, Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce have performed together since 1987.

    I thought the Smiths rumours were dead...

    I would rather have Bowie than The Smiths...

    Don't listen to these assholes, they just get bitchy when new people don't shift through the 80 pages of shit to find one relevant pieces of information. Has Richard repeatedly said it? Because we emailed him and he replied with something along the lines that Morrissey will probably be there and maybe the smiths will show.

    Yeah, it's probably true. I know that everytime I vaugley mend a falling out with someone I had decades ago I immediatley want to hang out with them constantly. You know, pick up right where we left off. Nevermind the fact that we're both pretty busy at the moment. The Smiths will for sure be there.

    Marr's talking to Morrissey again, I think... but The Smiths is a long-shot. I'm pretty sure we are getting Morrissey on his own. It would be cool if Coachella at least got Morrissey and Marr together though. I could care less about Andy and Mike being there.

    I can't believe you guys don't know The Smiths. Thom Yorke and Jim Morrissey? You guys are thinking about Coldplay. Come on, everybody knows The Smiths.

    a lot of it is just in fun too though...I don't moderate the board, nor do i try to act as if I'm a part of the board police...so I don't care who starts threads about what...

    The Smiths rumors are just one of those things that float around every single year, so sometimes it's fun to laugh about a new Smiths reunion rumor ...we're not all assholes

    Lol sorry if this was any other band then I'd be fine with it. He actually posted useful information quickly and I was unaware of new development that happened while I slept. Also you guys are all fucking retarded The Smiths did are that FUCK YOU I WON"T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME band.

    Real wait is for the line-up so I can know if saving all my money for the past month was a good idea. I have no idea what sort of awesomeness waits for me on the Polo fields as I have never been.
