There's a club if you'd like to go; you could meet somebody who really loves you...that club is the Totally 80s Podcast, diving deep on all things about The Smiths!

Today Lyndsey Parker and John Hughes share memories of the Mancunian music-makers who burned bright with a brace of killer albums and singles between 1983 and 1987. But they're not going and standing on their own: they're joined by director Stephen Kijak, whose latest film, Shoplifters of the World, focuses on Smiths fandom in America, through the fictional story of teens who react to the band's sudden breakup. The movie features nearly two dozen of The Smiths' classic songs and can be seen on-demand.
