“A fan of The Smiths? An early recording you’ve probably never heard before,” Joyce wrote on his Twitter account. “It was recorded on a cassette player lying on the floor in the rehearsal room.”

“I was lent the master cassette by a source close to the band who made the recording, let’s call him Pablo Cuckoo in 1997 with a view of trying to put it out as a semi-official release,” the YouTube user writes. “As it was recorded before the band had signed to Rough Trade, technically he had the rights to the recording. But a combination of poor sound quality and threats from Warner Bros meant that the idea was shelved.”

Also via YouTube account IndieCentExposureUK: Warner have found this video and UMPG publishing. But I have disputed it because this was recorded before they were signed and by published by both companies
