Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Smiths: Stephen Patrick Morrissey (vocals); Johnny Marr (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, piano, harmonium); Andy Rourke (cello, bass); Mike Joyce (drums).
  • Additional personnel: Craig Gannon (guitar); Kristy MacColl (background vocals).
  • Producers: The Smiths, Stephen Street, John Porter, Roger Pusey.
  • LOUDER THAN BOMBS contains 24 songs, including 12 from the UK compilation of B-sides and singles THE WORLD WON'T LISTEN.
  • 2 LPs on 1 CD.
  • Personnel: Morrissey (vocals); Johnny Marr (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, piano, harmonium); Andy Rourke (cello, bass guitar); Mike Joyce (drums).
  • Recording information: England (04/1983-11/1986).
  • Compiled mostly from tracks on the two UK releases HATFUL OF HOLLOW and THE WORLD WON'T LISTEN, LOUDER THAN BOMBS is one of the best examples of the recorded genius of the Smiths. While the band's album releases were always anxiously awaited and well received, their most enduring gems could often be found on their singles.
  • The Smiths took full advantage of the then-popular 12" single format, usually including non-album tracks on their B-sides, and this 24 track CD includes the most interesting examples of these. Numerous standout moments include "Ask," "Half A Person," "Shoplifters of the World Unite," "Panic," "William It Was Really Nothing," "Sheila Take A Bow," and "Stretch Out and Wait." An essential addition to any Smiths completist's collection.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.200) - "BOMBS contains the most-rocking song in the Smiths catalog: 'London,' two minutes of whip-cracking Britpunk sass."
