內容簡介

2011 tribute to Manchester quartet the Smiths on this release, Indie Rock luminaries including the Wedding Present, Built to Spill's Doug Martsch, Throwing Muses co-founder Tanya Donelly, Telekinesis and William Fitzsimmons contribute covers of 20 classic songs by Morrissey, Marr and the boys.

"Surprise. As an unapologetic (even then) original Smiths devotee, I expected a pleasant affirmation from overmatched inferiors. I got instead this wonderful 20-song, double-CD blockbuster. Disc one is pure excellence-gilded, gorgeous, thematically radiant, neo-4AD chamber pop dominated by gorgeous-voiced women, doing to Morrissey and Johnny Marr's hollowed '80s originals what 4AD's Ivo Watts-Russell did to '60s/'70s treasures with This Mortal Coil. There's a spirituality that not only reveres The Smiths, but also gets their deeply human, deeply moving connection unmatched since. The Chloe Chaidez-led L.A. standouts Kitten begin on a dramatic note, book-ending their sleekly stomping 'Panic' (1986 single) with bits of 'The Death of a Disco Dancer' (1987's finale, Strangeways Here We Come) in ghostly fragments that would impress The House of Love (plus, they substitute 'provincial town' California references for 'Dundee, Carlyle, Humberside!'); ex-Devics L.A. shoegaze star Sara Lov sits on the burble in Andy Rourke's bassline for Meat is Murder's immortal 'Well I Wonder'; Throwing Muses/Breeders/Belly chanteuse Tanya Donelly, reprising her collaboration with Oakland's Dylan in the Movies, removes the glam basis for 1987 single 'Shoplifters of the World Unite' for lovely strings; and the Sundays-like Sixpence None the Richer and Dala measure the wistful in Strangeways' 'I Won t Share You' and 'Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me.' The men are as tasteful, especially William Fitzsimmons, Mike Viola, and Greg Laswell, though David Gedge, with Wedding Present and Cinerama, and Doug Martsch add volume on a boisterous disc two. Please, Please, Please is grand, grand, grand!"
--Jack Rabid (Big Takeover - Top 40 Pick)

"It's not only deep cuts that get covered on this 20-track collection -- plenty of folks take a crack at the monsters of Smith-dom. Joy Zipper slows down What Difference Does It Make?, largely de-clawing it but making it more meditative and not without its charms; Mike Viola boldly turns in a chamber pop rendering of How Soon Is Now; Donnelly goes unplugged for Shoplifters of the World Unite and vets The Wedding deliver a highlight in a noisy, buzzing version of Hand in Glove. That song was of course famously covered in 1984 by the great Sandie Shaw, and a vintage shot of Shaw graces the cover of Please, Please, Please, whose other notable tracks include Reel Around the Fountain from Built To Spill's Doug Martsch, a sparkling, orchestral Stop Me from The Rest, and a couple of current indie rock luminaries: Telekinesis, who infuse a jolt of pep into Sheila Take a Bow and Katy Goodman of La Sera and Vivian Girls, does the opposite, reining in What She Said into something acoustic and lovely. --Noisevox.com

Several big names turn out to show their interpretations of Moz & Marr's classics: Built to Spill's Doug Martsch supplies an easygoing Reel Around the Fountain, while Telekinesis provide a raucous cover of Sheila Take a Bow. There's also an unexpected appearance from Sixpence None the Richer with a warm, sunny take on I Won't Share You and a fuzz-drenched rocker version of Hand in Glove by The Wedding Present. The best (and furthest straying) of these is Girl in a Coma's backwoodsy, foot-stomping Rubber Ring cover. Surprisingly, it's the lesser-known names that steal the show: Kitten's spacey, upbeat take on Panic, Cinerama's sample-peppered, soothingly ambient cover of London, and Tanya Donnelly and Dylan in the Movies soft, heartfelt acoustic version of Shoplifters of the World Unite are all showstoppers. Dala's smoky cabaret cover of Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me is possibly more heartbreaking than the original. Mike Viola and The Section Quartet swap heavily tremolo-ed guitars for moody strings on one of the more unique versions of How Soon Is Now? laid to record. Listing every solid tracks merits would take too long; there's hardly a dud among the two-disc set's 20 tracks. American Laundromat Records has assembled an outstanding and highly varied assortment of Smiths covers for their tribute record. Each and every artist shows a reverence and love towards the material they re working with; many take respectful liberties with their songs, giving a refreshing take on the music for those who know every lyric by heart and perhaps shedding a new light on the band for those who don't fall into The Smiths cult worship camp."
