A s the drum­mer in The Smiths, Mike Joyce’s con­tri­bu­tion to Bri­tish mu­sic has been mas­sive. Orig­i­nally join­ing The Smiths in 1982, Joyce re­mained the drum­mer un­til the band split in 1987. Dur­ing this time, he per­formed on all of The Smith’s recorded out­put, in­clud­ing four stu­dio al­bums that would ce­ment the band’s place as one of the most im­por­tant and in­flu­en­tial indie bands of all time. Af­ter leav­ing The Smiths, Mike went on to per­form with artists such as Sinead O’Con­nor, The Buz­zcocks, Ju­lian Cope and more.

In re­cent years, Mike has also de­vel­oped his pro­file as a ra­dio broad­caster and DJ. For his per­for­mance at LDS 2018, Mike will be tak­ing us be­hind the story of The Smiths’ al­bum TheQueen
