This was the Smiths' first show in France. The tickets and posters had a
printed request to bring flowers! And people did, as flowers were all over the
place.
"We're the Smiths," Morrissey announced matter of factly at the beginning of
this excellent show. After opener "Hand In Glove", Morrissey announced "This
is our new single, it's called 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now'." The song had
been through a few minor changes musically and was now like the studio version
that was to be released at the end of the month. Morrissey introduced
"Barbarism Begins At Home" with "This song is called 'Barbarism Begins At
Home'... which is true." At the end of the song, after his guitar part was
done, Johnny joined Morrissey and together they danced while Mike and Andy
finished the song.
"Pretty Girls Make Grave" included the new-ish reggae middle part, as
Morrissey sang "I could have been wild and I could have been free". Next up,
"This Night Has Opened My Eyes" was introduced with the words "Okay this is
really serious". After "Still Ill", in which he fell to the floor twice to
writhe like a dying animal, Morrissey grunted "Yeah!!" and the band launched
into "You've Got Everything Now". In that song Morrissey grunted, squawked and
squealed as he had done for a while in late 1983. Some lines were finished in
a high pitched yelp, like "No I don't want a lover I just want to be seen...
no, no, no, no... wouah!" and others were slightly changed, like "Well this is
true and it's false... ahhh!".
Probably surprised by the lack of reaction to "Handsome Devil", Morrissey
asked the audience after that song, "So?". As in late 1983, "Miserable Lie"
was the main set closer and right after the song Morrissey shouted "Goodbye!
Thank you!" and the band left stage. They were cheered back for three encores.
Coming back for the second encore, Morrissey asked the audience, "Johnny wants
to do 'Barbarism...'. Do you mind? Do you mind? Yes? No? Yes, you do mind? You
don't mind? Do you mind?". The majority of the crowd clearly called out "No!"
so they launched into the song for the second time that night. After that
Morrissey said "We love you, goodbye!" and the band left stage again. They
were called back for a third encore and gave the Parisians a second dose of
"Hand In Glove".
BOOTLEGS
The gig was recorded by a television show called Les Enfants Du Rock. The
entire concert was never broadcast, only three songs ("Girl Afraid", "Still
Ill" and "Barbarism Begins At Home"), nine days later.
A pretty good audio recording is available on the 'official' bootleg "El
Dorado". The concert is featured in its entirety bar the second encore of
"Hand In Glove". It is not impossible that this recording is the audio from
the television programme mentioned above. MP3s of the latter bootleg have
escaped onto the MP3 trading networks.
"Wilde About The Smiths", a factory pressed cd in digipack has "Heaven Knows
I'm Miserable Now" from this concert with many other live tracks, rarities and
radio and tv sessions.
