The Smiths & ME REX

Episode 65

Coming up Monday in Episode 65, Aaron highlights the music of a London-based ensemble that features members of three other distinct bands and Brent puts the spotlight on a Manchester group who, despite only releasing four albums, left a lasting impact on the music industry.

Starting as a solo project for Myles McCabe but evolving over time to include members of The Happy Accidents and Cheerbleederz, Aaron looks at three songs from ME REX.

With an influence that continues in subsequent generations even though their career lasted just five short years, Brent offers up two songs from The Smiths and a solo track from lead singer Morrissey.
