Biography

1.”Indiana riot-grrrls Smears cut two albums of supreme amateur rock and roll that exists only to shout what is wrong with life. Peppy hooks are maimed by a total lack of musical skills. Nonetheless Love Is Fer Suckers (Cargo, 1994) and Like Hell (Cargo, 1996) have the force of true teenage statements.” -http://www.scaruffi.com/

2.Two words - loud and clear. The Smears combine elements of both old and new school punk and rock along with strong melodies and inescapable hooks. Fronted by a singer/guitarist whose clear voice fills the room with the passion of her convictions, and intensified by a band as tight a straightjacket. With the release of their debut CD Asthenic Process, this band finally demonstrates that their ability to move you extends beyond their celebrated live shows.

3. The Smears are a British riot grrrl band formed in 2000 and based in Nottingham. They have released two albums - “Hell in Migh Heels” (2009) and “Dirty Protest” (2012).

    Can I just advise people that the tour dates to the right of the screen are not the vancouver smears - whom have disbanded - we The Smears of the UK - and have been gigging since 2000 in that name are currently on tour with these dates. The songs above are not ours - apart from Deliverance and Party Song- some how these have been mixed together. I am currently trying to solve this with LAST FM AS WE ARE LOSING GIG OFFERS FOR BEING TOO INDIE !!! WE ARE A PUNK BAND AND THIS IS CURRENTLY DAMAGING OUR IMAGE. Events SEP16 Zombina & The Skeletones Exit, Rotterdam, Netherlands Add shout | 8 attendees SEP17 THE SMEARS SUB071, Leiden, Netherlands Add shout | 1 attendee PLEASE SEE WWW.MYSPACE.COM/THE_SMEARS TO VIEW THE SMEARS - 3 GIRLS FROM NOTTINGHAM UK.
