Tribute band is classic Smiths

Music review

Smiths fans have a chance to see their tribute band when it appears at 53 Degrees in Preston on Saturday.

The Smiths Ltd was formed in February 2009 by Smiths-obsessed Alex Gaskell (guitar), Andy Crook (Bass) and Keith Partington (drums). Johnny Turner completed the line up in June 2009.

And since then they have gathered a loyal following of fans.

It is unlikely that the Smiths will ever play live again and certainly not with the passion and energy of that brief period between 1983 and 1987.

The Smiths Ltd are the closest you will get to experiencing that live charge of Morrissey, Marr and Co on stage, playing an arsenal of classics including There Is A Light That Never Goes Out, Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before, This Charming Man and many more.

Tickets for the gig are £10 in advance from 01772 893000 and the support will be Soul Sabateur.
