Classic Album Sundays presents The Smiths ‘Meat Is Murder’
We are excited to host another event at Good Room in Brooklyn and please be aware of the 4 – 7 pm timings. Check out the full details below.
The Smiths are one of Manchester’s seminal acts and although ‘Meat is Murder’ is not considered their definitive work (that accolade most likely would go to ‘The Queen is Dead’), their second album still deserves attention as it was the album that encapsulated the kernel of their future sound both lyrically and musically. Morrissey was beginning to write more politically and socially conscious lyrics and guitarist Johnny Marr and bass player Andy Rourke were getting the rockabilly bug. The US edition also included the song ‘How Soon is Now’ which showed the band crossing over into dance music. Classic Album Sundays pays tribute by celebrating the 30th anniversary of this classic LP.
Join us to first listen to music that either inspired or was relevant to this LP such as Joy Division, The Durutti Column, Sparks and The Buzzcocks, followed by the story behind the making of the album. Then the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl on our own audiophile hi-fi. Listening guidelines apply.
