Song of the day: The The- Uncertain Smile


In 1983, The The released the album Soul Mining. The band started with an advertisement that Matt Johnson placed in the NME. When Matt Johnson finally had a band, he recorded a song similar to Uncertain Smile, then named Cold Spell Ahead in 1981. One year later, under contract of Epic, they re-recorded the song. It has a saxophone solo in it, which was replaced by a piano solo on the album Soul Mining, as there was a piano in the studio that had to be used. The result was number 68 in the UK. Enjoy
