Leevi & the Smiths
I've long searched for conclusive evidence of a link between the Finnish band Leevi & the Leavings and the Smiths. I haven't exactly found it yet, but I think I've found at least something. I remember that Lotta said that she and her sister had agreed on one bit that was absolute evidence of a connection, but she can't remember what song it was and I haven't got them all, so I can't hear through them. But instead, I think I myself found something interesting. Listen to the Leevi song “Rakkauden työkalu“. The acoustic guitar that comes in after the helicopter sample (“I Want the One I Can't Have“!) is undeniably influenced by Johnny (circa “Pretty Girls Make Graves“). And then, straight after you've realised that, the guitar that makes that plaintive sound by sliding down from B to G# in “Bigmouth Strikes Again“ enters the song. It's all very clear now. Too bad the New Order style bass line comes in and ruins it all. Am I reading too much into this? No, I don't, listen for yourselves. L & L is, with or without S connection, better than most people could possibly imagine.
