SMILE used to be a five piece band but are now are four piece band. One less guitarist. The band currently consists of Pete Baxter, Max Turner, Josh Delaney and Liam Gough. Nothing intense happened or anything it just worked out that way. They aren't slacker rock but they have been known to be lazy. Hasn't everyone? It seems unfair to deem that the defining characteristic of a band just because of a couple times. Oh well, good songs but.
