"Heavy Track"


Two different takes of this instrumental were recorded early into the sessions for the "Strangeways, Here We Come" album, in March 1987 at Wool Hall Studios in Bath. Johnny must have had at the time just written the music. It appears that Morrissey never wrote any lyrics for it.


This unfinished song was never given an official release.


This song has never been performed specifically for radio or television.


This song has never been done live, either by the Smiths or Morrissey.


A 2:01 excerpt of one this song's two surviving takes was leaked at the end of 2010 under the title "Untitled Two" on the rarities LP bootleg simply titled "The Smiths". The full 4:41 version of that take remains uncirculated, just like the other take.
