This episode, Doug and Steve dive into the fascinating but short-lived career of The Smiths. Frequently cited as one of the UK’s most important musical movements, the guys bring some fresh ears to the music and its place in cultural history. Doug gives his thoughts on vegan message songs, Steve is haunted by Johnnny Marr’s guitar, and both guys gripe about track order.
