Steven Patrick Morrissey, known mononymously as Morrissey, is an English singer, songwriter, and author. He came to prominence as the frontman of The Smiths, a rock band active from 1982 to 1987. Since then, he has pursued a commercially successful solo career. Morrissey’s music is characterised by his baritone voice and distinctive lyrical content featuring recurring themes of emotional isolation and sexual longing, self-deprecating and black humour, and anti-establishment stances.
The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them one of the most important bands to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s.
In February 1984, the group released their debut album “The Smiths”, which reached number two on the UK Albums Chart.
The Smiths released three further studio albums: “Meat Is Murder”, “The Queen Is Dead”, and “Strangeways, Here We Come” and had a string of hit singles. The band were critically acclaimed and attracted a cult following. Personal differences between Morrissey and Marr resulted in the separation of the Smiths in 1987.
Morrissey has released 12 studio albums since his time with The Smiths.
Hits include: “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out”, “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now”, “The Boy With The Thorn In His Side”, “This Charming Man”, “Panic”, “How Soon Is This Now?”, “Suedehead”, “The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get”, “The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils”, “Glamorous Glue”, “First Of The Gang To Die” and “Hairdresser On Fire”.
Highly influential, Morrissey has been credited as a seminal figure in the emergence of indie rock and Britpop. Often regarded as one of the greatest lyricists in British history, his lyrics have become the subject of academic study.
