“Music is like a drug, but there are no rehabilitation centres.” Morrissey, 1991
The Smiths Presumably are a tribute band to The Smiths and Morrissey, one of the most influential bands of all time and the Real and Proper Poet Laureate. They play the classic hits of The Smiths and Morrissey.
Whatever happens – the allure of The Smiths and Morrissey will always remain, as the excitement around the rerelease of The Queen Is Dead, the Morrissey biopic England Is Mine and the new album Low In High School shows. Morrissey Indeed transport their audience to the glorious and overwhelming live music atmosphere of the 1980s and beyond recreating the resounding words and sweet melancholy melodies of the Songs That Saved Your Life, from ‘This Charming Man’, ‘Panic’ and ‘Bigmouth Strikes Again’ to ‘Suedehead’, ‘Everyday Is Like Sunday’ and ‘First Of The Gang To Die’.
Whoever was lucky enough to experience The Smiths in the 1980s, and Morrissey in the 1990s, will savour the sweet taste of nostalgia with The Smiths Presumably. Those who did not have the chance back then, now have the opportunity to time travel to an era where live music mattered more than life.
As a founding member of the critically acclaimed UK tribute band The Smiths Indeed, frontman and Morrissey-aficionado Jürgen Wendelen has been charming and convincing Smiths and Morrissey fans worldwide between 2005 and 2017 from Manchester to New York, Los Angeles to London, via Dublin and Amsterdam, with thrilling and engaging live shows. His voice, looks and dance moves come eerily close to that of the legendary British crooner in his prime.
In The Smiths Presumably, Jürgen has gathered a new group of outstanding musicians in Flanders to continue the celebration. Their debut appearance in Antwerp was met with enthusiastic praise and was soon followed by successful concerts in Germany, England, The Netherlands and Scotland.
The Smiths Presumably play a long set of The Smiths and Morrissey classics powerfully, authentically, passionately, ensuring The Light Never Goes Out.
