England had guitar pop too, and The Smiths were its new gods. Created in Manchester by non-conformist Morrissey and guitar maniac Johnny Marr, The Smiths presented kitchen-sink vignettes set to an original and timeless music style. Hatful Of Hollow is an officially-released 16-track compilation which documents the band’s extraordinary inaugural period, including album tracks, single sides and alternative takes. The Smiths’ music changed somewhat after this; they released a couple more albums and more singles before falling apart, never to be recombined.
