The Smiths - Salford Uni 1986

the smiths, live, salford university, 1986

The Smiths, live at Salford University, 20th July 1986

A great setlist from what was the The Smiths (sounds weird, but surely the correct way of saying it?) homecoming gig in Salford, home of the famous above location of course. Not the original line-up at this point, as Andy had been fired for his heroin use via post-it note, a classy touch from Morrissey...despite that, this is probably the most celebrated period of The Smiths career as they were touring what's generally considered their best album, certainly my favourite, The Queen Is Dead.

As I as at this gig as well as staying in the same hotel as "the Smiths" I can say that Andy Rouke was very much part of the group. They played as a 5 piece with Craig Gannon.

One of my all time favourite gigs.
