The Smiths is the eponymous debut studio album by English rock band the Smiths, released on 20 February 1984 by Rough Trade Records. After the original production by Troy Tate was felt to be inadequate, John Porter re-recorded the album in London, Manchester and Stockport during breaks in the band's UK tour during September 1983. The album was well received by critics and listeners, and reached number two on the UK Albums Chart, staying on the chart for 33 weeks

Produced by John Porter. Album The World Won’t Listen. Ask Lyrics So, if there's something you'd like to try If there's something you'd like to try Ask me, I won't say "no" How could I? Spending warm summer days indoors Writing frightening verse To a buck-toothed girl in Luxembourg. Ask me, ask me, ask me Ask me, ask me, ask me. Because if it's not love Then it's the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb that will bring us together.

The Smiths were an English rock band, formed in 1982 in Manchester by Morrissey and Johnny Marr.

Album · 2008 · 23 Songs. Over four years, from 1983 to 1987, the Smiths produced an enduring catalogue that included four studio albums and a slew of singles and b-sides often collected on a variety of compilation albums. The two-minute nightclub apocalypse of Panic, the wallflower ennui of Ask, and the sublime damp futures of William, It Was Really Nothing and Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now highlight the flow of The Smiths’ unrelenting single releases, while the majesty of such b-sides as Half A Person, Girl Afraid, and the live versions of Meat is Murder and London, attest.
