Having spend the last year working on our new postcard box set - Morrissey & The Smiths by Kevin Cummins - we're looking forward to Smithsfest at the ICA later this month.

The two day festival will include talks, performance, art and film screenings and will survey of the cultural impact of The Smiths, one of the most iconic, seminal and controversial bands in the history of pop music.

Highlights for me include double-bill of A Taste of Honey and The Leather Boys introduced by Rita Tushingham - two films she stars in and which were a huge influence on The Smiths - and the barber who'll be on hand to provide the perfect quiff.
