One of the UK’s top tribute acts is coming to Paisley.

Music lovers can check out The Smyths when they perform at the Bungalow bar on August 25.

The band was formed back in 2003 by musicians with a real passion for chart-toppers The Smiths.

A spokesman for The Smyths said: “We didn’t just want to be a tribute band - we wanted to play the music of The Smiths and recreate what is was to see and hear The Smiths live.

“It just happens that, when you do that, the world calls you a tribute.

“For us, that was a world of silly wigs and props - everything we felt a homage to The Smiths shouldn’t be - so we spent a year rehearsing every week to make sure that, when we launched, we sounded genuine.

“The Smiths and their fans demand nothing less.

“We focused on the sound and spirit of The Smiths live. Fast forward several years and some 500 shows later and we see and hear ourselves now spoken of as being in the top tier of tributes globally.

“The years in between have seen us play throughout the UK, overseas and at major festivals such as Glastonbury.

“It’s a pleasure and privilege to be seen as the foremost tribute to The Smiths.”

The gig at the Bungalow, in Shuttle Street, takes place from 8pm until 1am and tickets are available now, priced at £14 and £12.
