New Smiths Compilation

This joke isn’t funny anymore, god damn it*.

We’ve already got all these songs and if we don’t there’s about three other compilations we can get them on. But here we go again, Warner trots out another Smiths package and spins some junk about it being the ‘very best’ of the Smiths, or the ‘essential’ Smiths. Bullocks. This is the ‘oh, you lost your Singles collection? Damn, you better get this’ Smiths trough.

Somewhere, Morrissey is rolling in his bed of unmarked bills.

*Best Smiths-pun wins a prize.
