They have an Eighties section, with a Hatful Of Hollow retrospective (although no other Smiths albums, oddly), a Johnny Marr interview, a few nice pics - also, a review of Inside The Smiths, with a brief Mike Joyce Interview. Oh, and some badges, one of which is The Smiths. Pics below.

It's a hard-faced two word gesture, basically FU or up yers!

Attached is a piccy of Moz giving you the V's.

Do you ever notice how sometimes he gives the audience the V's when he sings, "I've heard you'll try/do anything/anyone twice" during Lemme Snog Ya. It's lost on most Americans.

Hideous trait.
I don't know why you would use two fingers when one would do perfectly well.

Caught that last line from Marr, too... youch.

Thanks for the scans! I appreciate it!

From Wikipedia:

The insulting version of the gesture (with the palm inwards) is often compared to the offensive gesture known as "the finger". The "two-fingered salute", or "bowfinger", as it is also known, is commonly performed by flicking the V upwards from wrist or elbow. "The finger" is traceable to Roman times [6], but may be unrelated in origin, as the insulting V sign is largely restricted to the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

The V sign, when the palm is facing toward the person giving the sign, has long been an insulting gesture in England and later in the rest of the United Kingdom. It is frequently used to signify defiance (particularly of authority), contempt or derision and is often accompanied with a verbal phrase like "f*ck off".

Gesturing in such a way is sometimes known as "Flipping the Vs" or "Flicking the Vs" in certain parts of the UK.[citation needed] This is most likely due to a popular method of delivery in which the gesture is made with the knuckles first facing towards the floor and then rapidly flipped up so that the outer knuckles are facing the target of the insult. In Scotland, this gesture is known commonly as the "Vicky".[9]

The insulting V sign can also be combined with the bent elbow, creating a compound gesture with the intensity and vulgarity of both components.

Also:

According to a popular myth the two-fingers salute and/or V sign derives from the gestures of longbowmen fighting in the English army at the Battle of Agincourt during the Hundred Years' War. The story claims that the French cut off two fingers on the right hand of captured archers and that the gesture was a sign of defiance by those who were not mutilated.
