A BAND who pay homage to one of the most influential British groups of the last 30 years are heading to St Albans.

The Smyths are - you've guessed it - a tribute to Manchester legends The Smiths, whose short-lived union from 1982 to 1987 left an indelible mark on the British indie scene.

Formed in 2003, they are led by Graham Sampson, whose voice bears a striking resemblance to a certain Stephen Patrick Morrissey.

The band have toured extensively over the last five years, and have built up a comprehensive set list, which encompasses more than 50 songs by The Smiths and Morrissey.

Fans can expect to hear a mixture of timeless classics, such as This Charming Man and There Is A Light That Never

Goes Out and more contemporary offerings from Morrissey's solo career, including Irish Blood English Heart and First Of The Gang To Die.
