Quite simply, the greatest photograph ever taken of The Smiths. The combination of an unmistakeably northern location and the relaxed pose of the band lend the image a subtle humour and poignancy that chimes perfectly with the group’s musical output. The image was shot on a dark and rainy day in December 1985, with the group at the peak of their powers. A copy hangs in the Machester Art Galley and it has been accepted as part of the National Portrait Gallery collection. It was also voted as one of the 50 greatest rock photographs of all time by NME.
