The Smiths: ICA, London
Dave McCullough, Sounds, 5 October 1983
BY THE way, the Smiths are becoming massive, if I can squeeze in here between Manowar and Waysted (it hurts, but I like it). I can tell you that the Smiths at the abysmal ICA made me, for the first time in about five years of rock writing, think in terms of phrases like "the new Beatles" and "bigger than the Stones".
