30 Years Ago: The Queen Is Dead Released


I read the post below from Mike Joyce yesterday so I’d thought I give my vinyl a spin this morning. I used to enjoy my search for music, traveling to various records stores from around L.A. like Aarons (Hollywood), Poobahs & Moby Disc (Pasadena), Middle Earth (Downey), Lovells (Whittier), and among others I can’t remember. One of the shops I can’t remember is where I purchased The Queen Is Dead.  It was Montebello on Whittier Blvd; where I used to sell buttons from photos I’d cut out from import magazines like Karrang! NME, Q, etc.

I may still have my recorded cassette somewhere stored away, but it is so much easier to play it off Spotify. When I pulled it out from the sleeve today it was in great shape. Wiped it off, placed it on the turntable, and layed down the arm. Let it play through side 1, flip it over play on. I remember hearing it in my room nearly 30 years ago, reading the lyrics, wondering where in the world is the Staford Lad’s Club. For 45 minutes I was taken to a better place.

The Smiths “Queen Is Dead”
released: June 16, 1986 (UK)/June 23 (US)

Shared Post from Mike Joyce of The Smiths

The Queen Is Dead
13 May 2016
The Queen Is Dead

Morrissey has commented:

“I would like to congratulate the Smiths, and also Stephen Street, and also Rough Trade Records for 30 fantastic years of sales for The Queen Is Dead, which is 30 years old in June. We have always been gagged, of course, but certain recordings rise with time, and The Queen Is Dead and also Meat Is Murder both had the courage to put the fullest meaning of British life into words and music. It was the hope of helping things to evolve, and the mobilized strength of both recordings for 30 years has been fully understood and appreciated by those with sensible passions. Central issues in 2016 England include an urgent need of social justice for animals

as well as an obvious recognition of ‘monarchy as anarchy’ (therefore, something with no place in a democratic society).

I am sorry that Warner UK or Sire US cannot provide any celebrations for the anniversaries of both recordings, but, perhaps some label bosses have their eye on a tatty OBE, and perhaps others simply have detachable heads. It would not quite be the Smiths if not classically ignored by the dried-out lawns of the establishment. I urged Warner UK to issue a special ‘The Queen Is Dead’ single release for the first week of June … but … brick wall.

Bleeding to death, I therefore have the restless gall to ask of you that, should you have 99 cents/pence, that you purchase ‘The Queen Is Dead’ track in the final week of May, thus possibly edging it into the corner of everyone’s ear in the UK Top 100 – if only to let them know that we are still here and fully aware of the fox-fur on the hall-stand. I am sorry to ask more of you than you have already given, but we all do as well as we can in such ludicrous times. I can only ask.

I am absolutely yours, in pleasant speaking voice, and with good grace.”
