Descendants of Smith is the fourteenth studio album by Roy Harper, released in 1988.

The album was re-issued in 1994 as Garden of Uranium. The track listing was identical, though the albums cover was different.



As a publicity stunt on the music media, whom Harper thought did not give him or his music fair or considered reviews. Harper sent out 3 promo versions of "Laughing Inside" using anagrams of his own name; 'Per Yarroh' a Norwegian classical avant garde composer, 'Rory Phare' a Lounge Lizard and trendy art designer and 'Harry Rope' a Hells Angels. Music magazines were sent the 7" single, along with an accompanying fake biography describing the artist they were being introduced to.[2]
