On this date, September 28th in 1987, The Smiths released their 4th and final studio album, Strangeways, Here We Come. The record includes two of my favorite Smiths tracks, “Death of a Disco Dancer” — on which Morrissey plays the piano, making it the only Smiths album to feature Morrissey playing a musical instrument — and “Paint a Vulgar Picture,” both of which are just brilliance distilled.
One thought on “The Smiths Release Strangeways, Here We Come”
There’s no way I can ever think of this album again without your comment “Darth of a Disco Dancer.” But that’s a good thing! 🙂
