Just a small point but Mike Joyce was in punk bands before The Smiths. The funk band was Johnny and Andy (Freak Party) with Simon Wolstencroft on drums.
Yeah, I was just talking about the two stringmen.
Ahh.. got it. I always wonder how different The Smiths might have sounded with SW on drums - maybe it would have influenced more of JMs funk side.
My guess would be Morrissey would have left the band.
Or just shoved SW out. Wasn't Morrissey the prime instigator for dumping Rourke over his heroin addiction?
Yes, though I don't know if he'd identify SW as the instigator of funk if Marr and Rourke were writing to go with it. He might think he found himself in some funk band unexpectedly and go back to working with Billy Duffy or something.

It depends, I suppose, on whether he thought his bond with Marr was greater than Marr's with Rourke.

This video premiered today on Morrissey’s official YouTube channel. I was at this show. Nice to relive it.

Nice when I could still relate to him.

I was at this one from the same year.

Yes, that’s a great one. I received a VHS copy of this show back then. Alain’s finger(s) were bleeding, but he played on.

I think they were a very solid band.
