Are you obsessed with The Smiths or want to know more about one of the greatest British bands of all time? Do you collect the beautiful and colourful sleeves with those cryptic sleeves featuring a series of cover stars chosen by Morrissey?
I've been a Smiths fan for a long time. They're my favourite group. Like probably many of you, over the years I've accumulated a considerable collection of Smiths' records, cds, cassettes, old magazines, the tacky badges, posters, t-shirts, books and more.
"The essence of Smiths Art (MozArt) was the will to have every Smiths sleeve as well turned out as possible, and it came from an idea I had to take images that were the opposite of glamor and to pump enough heart and desire into them to show ordinariness as an instrument of power - or possible, glamor. Bits of neo-realism, bits of brutality, with the task being to present cheerless and cluttered bed-sitter art in a beautiful and proudly frank way (note: The World Won't Listen). Rules, in all things, are simply laid down so that someone might break them." - Morrissey
