The Smiths – How Soon Is Now?

Tracy Howe: “OK I thought this is obviously too big to mention and that I should make a more clever choice but if you’re going to pick six tracks from the 80’s how could you possibly omit this absolutely unique and brilliant record? I wouldn’t want to have breakfast with Morrissey every morning but the vocal and lyrics are epic, and Johnny Marr is the Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart of electric guitar.”

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
