The Smiths – Tracklist Poster

Great piece of artwork based upon The Smiths discography – BACK IN STOCK

Chester based graphic artist Aiden Smith has created this stunning piece of artwork; a full-colour poster showing The Smiths’ discography, based upon the Manchester tram map.

Aiden said of the band and the influence on his work “It was thirty years ago that a band from Manchester released their first single ‘Hand In Glove’. For the next four years they released the songs that made me laugh, made me cry and definitely changed my life even if they maybe didn’t save it. I’m not going to try and tell you how great they were – either you already know or my words won’t persuade you. However, to me, they are in a class of their own and no band can ever touch them. This is my tribute. So thank you, to Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce: The Smiths.”

Aiden has now created his own visually striking tribute to The Smiths – This poster is A2 size (594mm x 420mm), printed to an exceptionally high quality on 200gsm silk finish paper.

Louder Than War are delighted to be able to offer this exceptional design – Head over to the LTW Shop to order now.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
