I’ve posted an unusually large number of stories focused on the music of THE SMITHS this month, that it almost seems like overkill. No, not the thrash metal band ”Overkill,” but a little too much. But, this news is just too good not to share. First off, those interested in introducing THE SMITHS to their infants might be interested to know that the Rockabye Baby! LULLABY RENDITIONS OF THE SMITHS (full details here) will be getting a limited-edition vinyl release for Record Store Day 2012.
Available only at participating independent record stores beginning April 21, 2012 (and likely on eBay afterward), I believe this might be the only piece of Children’s Music being released for the special day.
Then we have an 8-bit NES rendition of THE SMITHS’ The Charming Man by a Soundcloud user known as lazyitis. Check out SUPER MORRISSEY BROS. below.
For the hardcore fan, don’t forget that Rhino has a massive collection of remastered catalog releases coming out on April 3. Details here.
