[tweetmeme]For this week’s installment of “120 Minutes” Rewind (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/category/120-minutes-rewind/), we turn to a September 1987 episode that features the show’s creator and producer Dave Kendall (http://davekendall.com/) eulogizing the The Smiths (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Smiths) upon their breakup following the release of Strangeways, Here We Come (https://www.amazon.com/Strangeways-Here-We-Come-Smiths/dp/B007F5S1GS).
Appearing in silhouette — as he often did before becoming host — Kendall declares “The Smiths have officially gone under,” and delivers his “final epitaph” for the band, proclaiming the group “one of the world’s all-time greats.” In a pre-Internet era in which music news could be slow to come by, this may have been some fans’ first awareness of The Smiths’ breakup following Johnny Marr’s departure that summer.
