VIVA HATE: With Smith's producer and Morrissey producer/co-writer Stephen Street, Backstage, Putney 2018.

"Having had the very good fortune to have worked up close and personal with The Smiths, I can vouch that The Smyths are the most excellent 'tribute' to the Smith's music and legacy. The Smyth's musicianship is  undoubtedly of a very high standard enabling them to play every song from The Smiths' and Morrissey's catalog with incredible precision and feel. Go and see them live, you won't be disappointed!"
