…And asks Smiths fans to quit it with the death threats.
Undaunted, he’s returned with a piano-led cover of ‘There is a Light That Never Goes Out’ — featuring the vocals of Graham Sampson, the leader singer for Smiths cover band (tribute band?) The Smyths. Stream it below; Skream explained the song’s origin on Soundcloud:
The last time I touched a piece of The Smiths music I got absolutely annihilated…
Let me explain my reason behind this cover please.
Whenever I play in Manchester I end my set with a big Manchester record and last Friday being my return to Store Street I needed a track I hadnt used before..I’ve played all the obvious ones ‘Love WIll Tear Us Apart’ New Order, STone Roses etc etc….
So I picked this track but didn’t just want to play the original..
So I figured out a piano version but couldn’t find an acapella..
I then went on to spend my day listening to Smiths cover band and came across ‘The Smyths’ (www.thesmyths.net ) and contacted them and was introduced to Graham Sampson the lead singer who agreed to re sing it for me….
I wasnt gonna upload it but theres been demand from the people who were there Friday to hear it again and from people who wanna hear it from a video clip I uploaded..
Anyway..Here it is….And to all the Smiths fans please..No more death threats looooool
