“Park the car at the side of the road/ You should know/ Time’s tide will smother you/ And I will too/ When you laugh about people/ Who feel so very lonely/ Their only desire is to die/ Well, I’m afraid/ It doesn’t make me smile/ I wish I could laugh/ But that joke isn’t funny anymore/ It’s too close to home/ And it’s too near the bone/ It’s too close to home/ And it’s too near the bone/ More than you’ll ever know// […]” – “That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore”
Everybody loves The Smiths! No, I am joking, not everybody but only the good person! And we are so good.
On Friday the second on December 2016, from 20:00 to 3:00, at The Pack and Carriage, in 162 Eversholt Street, NW1 1BL, in London, we will listen and dance all night the music of one of the most important band of UK: The Smiths.
The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them the most important alternative rock band to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s.
The Smiths are “the most influential British guitar group of the decade and the first indie outsiders to achieve mainstream success on their own terms” how wrote Simon Goddard, british author and music journalist for Q Magazine.
“Asleep/ Sing me to sleep/ Sing me to sleep/ I’m tired and I/ I want to go to bed/ Sing me to sleep/ Sing me to sleep/ And then leave me alone/ Don’t try to wake me in the morning/ ‘Cause I will be gone/ Don’t feel bad for me/ I want you to know/ Deep in the cell of my heart/ I will feel so glad to go// […]/ There is another world/ There is a better world/ Well, there must be/ Well, there must be/ Bye bye.” – “Asleep”
This time in The Pack and Carriage formally known as The Elixir in Camden we came live again the emotional music of The Smiths.
So… quickly… booked the ticket!
“[…] I know it’s over/ and it never really began/ but in my heart it was so real/ and you even spoke to me and said:// If you’re so funny/ then why are you on your own tonight?/ and if you’re so clever/ then why are you on your own tonight?/ if you’re so very entertaining/ then why are you on your own tonight?/ if you’re so very good looking/ why do you sleep alone tonight?/ I know because tonight is just like any other night/ that’s why you’re on your own tonight/ with your triumphs and your charms/ while they are in each other’s arms” – “I Know It’s Over”
