The Smiths made an appearance on an episode of Channel 4 television show Earsay, on 31st March 1984.


The first segment included a full preview of the then-upcoming single Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now. This preview featured an early mix of the track, with a shorter intro and muffled vocals. Footage was filmed, featuring Morrissey and the band miming in a studio, and Morrissey wandering around a vacant plot of land in Manchester. The drums provided to Mike Joyce were filled with acetate.

The second part featured an interview with Morrissey and Sandie Shaw.
