Trip back in time and enjoy the music videos from The Smiths, plus watch the band's legendary December 1983 concert which preceded the album's release. The show featured much of the material that would end up on The Smiths.

Johnny Marr revealed in a new interview with NME that the Smiths (who signed to Rough Trade) were never turned down by Factory Records. Marr said the Smiths were not interested in recording for Factory:

"So much has been made of Factory apparently turning The Smiths down, but that's a crock of shit. The Smiths would have signed to Factory over my dead body... I didn't want to be assimilated into the Factory aesthetic...

If you were a musician in Manchester at that time, it was almost the law that you went on your hands and knees and begged Tony Wilson for his papal blessing to stick you in the studio, and I wasn't about to do that"
