If you’re like me – and you might be if you are the kind of person who reads Pure Film Creative – you have eclectic tastes in arts and entertainment that aren’t dictated by trends or popularity contests. Therefore, I am not going to say this: The Smoking Popes are the best band you never heard of.
Never mind the irony of me saying you’ve never heard of something I already mentioned in the same sentence. I would not be so presumptuous as to write such a thing, because I resent articles with titles like “The Ten Best Movies You Have Never Seen” when I’ve actually seen most of them, and so on. I’m just going to say: The Smoking Popes are the best band that you are statistically unlikely to have encountered prior to reading this story, unless you forgot you own the Clueless soundtrack.
