The Art of The Smiths 1982-1987
Veteran music journalist Simon Goddard presents the ultimate guide to one of Britain’s best-loved bands, who came to define indie music of the 1980s and beyond. Songs That Saved Your Life: The Art of The Smiths 1982-1987 is an up-to-date must-have encyclopaedia of the entire Smiths’ discography [Titan Books, 26th February 2013].
Written in the classic style of Ian Mcdonald’s ground-breaking and hugely successful Beatles analysis Revolution In The Head, Titan Books are printing an updated edition of Songs That Saved Your Life. Entirely overhauled by Simon Goddard himself, it features interviews and commentary from original band members, producers and associates.
Songs That Saved Your Life: The Art of The Smiths 1982-1987 reveals the stories behind every track (including unreleased outtakes), catalogues all the group’s UK television, radio and concert appearances and features interviews with original band members, producers and associates.
Simon Goddard has contributed to numerous music magazines and newspapers including Q, Uncut and The Independent On Sunday. He has previously authored Mozipedia, the definitive and critically-acclaimed encyclopaedia of Smiths frontman Morrissey. His books have twice been used to set specialist Smiths questions on the BBC's Mastermind.
