On Saturday 13th July 1991, the group delivered the gig of their lives at London’s Wembley Stadium to 74,000 ecstatic fans. After a decade and a half on the road the band were at the peak of their live powers and the performance filmed that day shows they were not only a world-class stadium band but the only band that ever had the guts to walk onto the stage at…
The Smiths “What Difference Does It Make?” 1984. 12″ single, Rough Trade Records. Though Morrissey and Johnny Marr have stated this single from The Smiths’ debut album is one of their least favorites, it’s one of my top Smiths songs; I love the propulsive beat, the urgency of the guitar and the choice lines of lyrics (i.e. “the devil will find work for idle hands to do, I stole and I lied and why? because you asked me to” and “your prejudice won’t keep you warm tonight”). It became The Smiths first hit, making it to #12 in the UK. This is one of the later pressings of “What Difference Does It Make?” – a few early ones feature Morrissey holding a glass of milk as Terence Stamp initially denied permission for the still from the movie The Collector to be used (he obviously change his mind and most pressings have this photo as the cover).
Side B has “Back To the Old House,” a slow and lovely classic Smiths lament, and “These Things Take Time,” which is much more upbeat but super angsty, so perfect for teenage ears in the 80′s: “Oh, the alcoholic afternoons, When we sat in your room, They meant more to me than any, than any living thing on earth…Vivid and in your prime,You will leave me behind.”
Reblogging myself: The Smiths “What Difference Does It Make?” released on this date, January 16th, 1984.
At the end of Rush’s colossal world tour in support of their epic Hemispheres album in June 1979 each member agreed to take a six-week sabbatical before work would begin on a follow up record. This was a first for the band and showed the toll the grueling eight month trek had taken on the members. They finally got together in mid-July 1979 at Lakewoods Farm near…

For better or worse, the ‘90s will be remembered for a lot of iconic moments, but mostly it will be for the music. There was the rise of Brit Pop and the battle between Oasis and Blur, Nirvana bringing grunge to the mainstream and influencing an entire generation to wear a plaid shirt, the Spice Girls taking over the world, and Jarvis Cocker’s stage invasion during Michael Jackson’s performance…
I had a business event in Long Beach, CA tonight, so naturally I went there a little early and hit record shops. Dax Records had a small inventory but it was a great, eclectic selection curated by a nice staff. How nice? They were letting film students use the shop for a short for free while I was there. The other shop, Dizzy on Vinyl, had a broader selection of this and that, and I found a few cool items surprisingly cheap. And the decorations inside were wild (shoulda taken a photo).
