Produce Like A Pro YT: "Songs that Changed Music: The Smiths - How Soon Is Now" (November 25, 2020)

“How Soon is Now?” was written by The Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr and singer Morrissey.
Marr’s haunting, tremolo and sliding guitar part prepares the perfect sonic atmosphere for Morrissey’s angst-ridden lyrics.
“I am the song and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar,” the singer croons to his listeners.
Upon the band’s break-up, writer Simon Reynolds named this dark tone as the key element that made the band so appealing:
“Why were The Smiths ‘important’? Because of their misery….The Smiths finest moments - ‘Hand in Glove,’ ‘How Soon is Now?’, ‘Still Ill’, ‘I Know Its Over’ - were moments of reproachful, avenging misery, naked desperation, unbearable reverence - free from the ‘saving grace’ of quips and camp self-consciousness.

The 1980s pop superstar talks about backstage antics at the BBC, being cornered by Bob Geldof at Heathrow, and those notorious outfits.

The article is gated - so reproduced in full below:
It’s 11.30am or thereabouts on Monday, so it’s time for Nik Kershaw to get out the wine. “We were drinking this,” the musician is saying, hefting into laptop-screen view a bottle of Gevrey-Chambertin.

It just so happens that the 1980s pop star, responsible for retro-radio staples Wouldn’t It Be Good, I Won’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me and The Riddle, has to hand a bottle of the same red wine he enjoyed one fateful Sunday at Elton John’s Windsor estate. (Probably not the same pricey vintage, he points out, but you get the picture.)

In late 1984, the year of his chart breakthrough, Kershaw – now a well-preserved 62 years old...
