On Saturday night I stumbled upon a Smiths concert in for the German rock programme ROCKPLAST.
The Smiths were in their austere first pomp, just after the first album. They played ‘Headmaster’s Ritual’ (called ‘Crack on the Head’ on the German subtitle) but no ‘How Soon Is Now’.
They didn’t have enough songs for their encores so repeated 3 songs. I was so excited I started taking photos with my phone, hence these images above.
The concert was excellent; if only I’d seen it at the time; I would have SWOONED in 1983.
