The Smiths in Unexpected Places – Part One of a Very Occasional Series

February 23, 2011

I don’t follow Coronation Street – BUT I did recognise the tune that was playing when the “Tyrone” character;


(yes, this chap) was doing his washing (it is a Soap Opera, after all).

It was “The Smiths – How Soon is Now”.

Now The Smiths are a Manchester band, but I’ve always thought of Tyrone as more an Ocean Colour Scene sort of a chap, myself.

Is this writerly shorthand for things being pretty bad for the lad, I wonder?
