Originally recorded by the Smiths on January 28, 1984.
We chose to do this song as it is probably the darkest Smiths song both musically and lyrically.
I think I died a little when I heard How Soon is Now for the first time. I didn't know bands like this could exist. I was in High School and having a hard time identifying with bands like Limp Bizkit and Alien Ant Farm that were aggressively dominating the airwaves at the time. Hearing the Smiths for the first time, I found myself. Johnny Marr's genius guitar sirens layered on top of Bo Diddley vibrato and Morrissey claiming the throne of shyness, "Theres a club if you'd like to go",--- we've all been there. Covering the song was a chance for both Jon and I to reconnect with this nostalgia while adding our own vulnerable darkness to the mix.
