Smiths instrumental recording from soundcheck at Dundalk Fairways Hotel (Feb. 11, 1986)

Hello. I was rifling around some old files, and I found something I'd been looking for for ages - that rare thing - a Smiths song that never made it.

This is taken from a sound-check at Dundalk Fairways Hotel, February 11th, 1986. It isn't quite Panic, and it isn't quite Sheila Take a Bow, but it's somewhere in between, and before either was recorded/released.

An interesting historical artefact.

Enjoy.

That's right tribute bands that play the songs far better than Martin and the lawnmowers could only dream of !
Fact.

More proof that Morrissey was the most important element of The Smiths. Johnny's clunky repetive chords progressions ripped off from T Rex are not much to write home about as standalone tracks. Yet the isolated tracks of Morrissey's vocals that are out there (eg "Stop Me...") are spellbinding.

Must agree. The Smiths were Morrissey's original backing band and might as well have been called Morrissey.

I also heard a bloody great version of Southpaw on that link. Better than album version I think.

Oh dear ! Is that so ?
Well perhaps you'd like to explain yourself on my "racist" comment ! Otherwise to coin a phrase from Uncleskinny
(And people on here know I don't like to spell out sweary words) f*** OFF !
Oh yes ! And die !

:lbf:lots and lots of laughs...at you Butchy boy.I was trying to be nice,but you just suck. Sadly you ARE mentally ill, but all of us at solo tolerate YOU, Because we don't know what you would do if you didn't have an outlet to express the self hate and loathing that you quite rightly feel for yourself. Poor OLD boy.

Thanks hun !

ha,now wait a minute,I never said that ! Though would be a gas if he turned up to one of those 'Smiths
nights things' and stood in front of the tribute band, just staring ! Or maybe being really into it, going ape !
Would freak the band out.
