Artist Raid 71 Brilliantly Represents The Influential Alternative 80’s Icons The Smiths With 3 Outstanding Posters

Alt-rock band The Smiths formed in Manchester, England in 1982 and then went on a tear producing some of the most  incredible music ever from 1983 – 1987. Their impact on music is undeniable as many of today’s bands note them as an influence. Artist Chris Thornley AKA Raid 71 has taken 3 of their most popular songs, How Soon Is Now, What Difference Does It Make and This Charming Man and done fantastic prints for them. Each poster contains a memorable lyric from the song of choice as well as a theme such as Fiction, Adventure and Travel and Mystery.  The posters are below and I have included music videos for you to basque in the glory of Johnny Marr and Morrissey.  Follow Raid 71 on TWITTER HERE or check out his TUMBLR PAGE to see more of his impressive portfolio.
