tunes, fashion, spirituality, wit, arrogance, they had the lot

Although there are a lot of great Manchester bands, there's nobody quite like The Smiths.
There's Joy In Expatriation.

Easy; Joy Division. Not even close. Morrisey total wanker. Except Meat is Murder. That good. Sorry Pook.

I'd have to opt for The Smiths...

New Order and Stone Roses are fine bands indeed but there can only be one answer to this question:

Joy Division clearly cast a shadow over everyone else.

But New Order, The Smiths, Stone Roses and Gang Of Four are all among my favorite bands.

OK, I like To watch CRonaldo on the ball...you know skills are good.

but why is he such a diving cheat? is this not embarrassing? why do a player that good need feel the need to cheat? It's sad.

Mark E. Smith uh
he's class
a national treasure him

I liked the Smiths I also liked that they were not Joy Division, who I love dearly. It's good to see a band be conciseness different to such a "geographical" influence.

Happy Mondays...side 1 of "Pills and Thrills" is good.
I liked New Order...esp the video take of The Perfect Kiss
go large Hooky Bass monster.

That is my answer as well. The Fall are exactly what I want music to sound like.

Gotta include The Fall, otherwise we would have to exclude Neworderjoydivision as they were a Salford/Macclesfield band.

I've never really checked this band.
Will do now.

The smiths are unbeatable
small circles, big wheels!
I've got a pretty firm grip on the obvious!

well there output is prodigious

I really dig their cover of "Lost in Music"

the mid-period I like the most...pop songs
"Extricate" , "Shift Work" and "Code Selfish" may all be approachable albums, unlike some of the earlier efforts which can be a bit hard on the lugs.
