To this day, they were, their fans believe, the best band in the world.
Critics and sales figures told a similar story. Yet for all their
brilliance and adoration - their famously energetic live shows routinely
interrupted by stage invasions - The Smiths were continually plagued by
their reticence to play the game, and by the time of 1987's Strangeways
Here We Come, they had split.
Tony Fletcher's A Light That Never Goes Out - part celebration, part paean - moves from Manchester in the nineteenth-century to the present day to tell the complete story of The Smiths. The product of extensive research and unprecedented access, it will serve to confirm The Smiths as one of the most important and influential rock groups of all time.
