The internet’s a funny ol’ place, isn’t it? Like Chinese Whispers on mass scale.

Well, today a news story was posted on the straight-forwardly-named website Music News suggesting that The Smiths are to reform.

Actually what was written exactly was the following:

Music-News.com has learnt that one of the greatest bands the world has ever known are to reform.

The Smiths, widely regarded as THE seminal British band, are to throw their differences aside and return to the live stage this autumn.

The legendary songwriting partnership comprising of musical luminaries Morrissey and Marr are set to make a return after finding common ground.


Far from unquestionable proof, but you know what the online world is like…

We’ll wait and see.

Meanwhile, watch the band in their glory days with this rather strange clip of them performing to school kids and puppets.
