The Smiths, 1983, Live Review

This earliest known live review of The Smiths, originally published in a fanzine called City Fun, is noteworthy for a number of reasons — some intriguing and others a bit unsettling. To wit, this priceless bit about the band’s 23-year-old frontman: “If the boy’s head is anything to go by, The Smiths are going to be B-I-G.”

If artifacts like this are your thing, I highly suggest you swing by the place where I uncovered this scan: Manchester District Music Archive.
