The Smiths‘ Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce have contributed extensively to the first-ever official documentary about the legendary Manchester band.
‘Inside The Smiths’ is due out on DVD on July 16, and examines The Smiths from the perspectives of their bassist and drummer.
The film also includes appearances by Kaiser Chiefs‘ Ricky Wilson and Nick Hodgson, New Order‘s Peter Hook, Buzzcocks‘ Pete Shelley, and Mark E Smith of The Fall, who offer their own insights on the band.
It was directed and produced by Stephen Petricco, a friend of Rourke and Joyce‘s.
