The Smiths and Lana del Rey Update

Picture from Wikipedia.

Speaking about music, I don’t have many idols: Radiohead, Arcade Fire, The National and…The Smiths. The band consisting of Mike Joyce, Johnny Marr, Steven Morrissey and Andy Rourke was formed in 1982 and broke up already 5 years later, in 1987. The success outside the UK during their active time failed to appear, but nevertheless in todays critics they are often seen as THE english band of the 80s. What makes them so special for me is their inventive sound, their critical and ironic texts and Morrisseys’ unmistakable voice.

UPDATE Lana del Rey

Even I was surprised by the big success of Lana del Reys’ song “Video Games”, now her first album “Born to Die” will be released on January 30, 2012 ๐Ÿ™‚ The single with the same name is set for release 23rd January and the video is already out (Update: The GEMA denied the official video today. I reloaded another version, but Idon’t know how long it will work…):

  1. Never heard of the first band, little sis. Anyway, the movie of Lana Del Ray is denied by GEMA for german citizen. Don’t you like to live in a free country, where even the musicians can’t post their own videos? ๐Ÿ˜‰
