history of manchester music
the smiths
These pages are dedicated to the great bands and individuals who have emerged from the eclectic Manchester music scene to grace the worldwide stage.

We receive a steady stream of e-mails complaining that many bands' web sites are of poor quality and give little original information... particularly those covering The Smiths. We are therefore in the process of tracking down individuals who were particularly close to the bands in question as they broke and consequently have an interesting and original story to tell...

We start with a profile of The Smiths by Jonathan Schofield, which though low in graphical content due to copyright reasons, is packed with accurate information on the band itself.

As the weeks go by these pages will fill with in depth profiles of all the great Manchester bands of the 80's and 90's. If you were/are close to a leading band from this area and have an interesting story to tell, please e-mail

If the piece is good enough to use, you will receive full credits and a contributors fee.
