A Rush And A Push And The Land Is Ours

The Smiths

Track #1 from the album Strangeways, Here We Come

 Main Author's Notes

Sr.Moog: tempo map, bass, drums, guitar, vocals and keys.
CapnKris: venue, dryvox, fixes and fake ending.

After the release of "The Queen Is Dead" the bar was set high for critics who were going to compare everything the band performed to that album. The band's reaction was an album that featured better production and unusual arrangements for the band, something that is very much present in this song with almost no guitar parts. The song was inspired by a poem written by Oscar Wilde's mother, Jane Wilde, which spoke of a republican takeover of the Irish government and, musically, Marr says he was inspired by the song "Shoes" by Reparata.
