The Joneses began life in 2016 with Aidan Sheridan ‘Morrissey’ deciding to form the band because of his life-long love for Smiths music and an uncanny resemblance to Morrissey himself. Aidan met Matthieu in Camden Town, and while none of the two partners had any prior band experience, both shared similar passion to do justice to the band they loved most.
Soon joined by fellow musicians Neil Batey on bass and Steve Nye on drums, the band considerably improved their profile in the last 19 months to play 20 gigs across 13 venues in London, Margate & Birmingham – to rapturous applause & reaction from fellow Smiths fans.
The Joneses have developed a very unique style based on The Smiths live gigs, as opposed to the studio recordings. This introduces a stripped down, dramatic show with nods towards punk and rockabilly genres. This delivers a very lively and engaging show, with performances by Aidan ‘Morrissey’ recreating some of the antics performed by the original front man, which include wearing tattoos, brandishing and throwing flowers, undressing, rolling around the stage (where space permits) and thrashing about in Morrissey’s distinctive style.
