The Smiths – Rubber Ring 三 Asleep

For some unknown reason the non-album b-side to The Boy With the Thorn in His Side Rubber Ring/Asleep only appeared in its original form on the first issued 12″ and every version released thereafter split them into two-breaking apart the voiceover transition. The dichotomy between the two songs is a manic as the relationship between the rain and sun have been lately. Enjoy it in its original form:

The only thing better than the original 12″ Rubber Ring…the 1984 Demo of it. In close contention for being better than the final version. That guitar..

  1. I never knew that! Those are two of my favourite tracks by The Smiths to think that they run into each other is fascinating.

  2. Oh my god….
    I can’t tell you how i feel right now. Rubber ring has always felt like the key to the smiths, and, in this raw form, it’s just…like discovering the person you love on your first morning together. Loving all of its imperfections, like a biblical truth. Thank you so much.
