"Some Girls are Bigger than Others", a new show currently running "off-off the West End" in London, reinvigorates the Smiths' songs by dropping the rock ambience in favor of strings and electronics.
Plays for another week...hurry! :)
I missed my chance to see, the sold-out show, and heaven knows I'm miserable now.
"And the pain was enough to make a shy bald Buddhist reflect and plan a mass murder."
I was never the big Smiths fan. My pal Penny (a mortician, natch) was the Smiths fan.
But Morissey had his finger on the fading pulse of a depression-riddled sub-culture, cementing his place in "post-modern" nostalgia. Or something like that. :)
I liked Cocteau Twins..."Pearly Dewdrops Drop" and "Sugar Hiccup" still work well as background for late-night web-coding sessions...along with "French Market Coffee and Chickory", of course.
