Speaking of The Smiths...I've just heard this...and it is f*#@in' sublime...

...and this!



I've never heard Johnny play these songs on his own before and I'm impressed. I think I'd rather hear Marr play them without Morrissey's voice than Morrissey play them without Marr's guitar.

No-one can play it like Johnny Marr... but no-one can sing it like Morrissey. If only there was a way around this conundrum :)

Yeah I really like those. Now if Marr only had songs as strong as those on his solo albums.

How do you know Marr isn't an asshole? Maybe not in public like Moz making a dick of himself but we don't really know how any of our musical kings and and queens are in their private life. The key is probably keeping it quiet.

You're right, of course, I don't know for certain, but assholes tend to be rather poor about hiding it. That is, private assholes tend to slip up. And I've never read anything unkind said about Marr, that he's an egomaniac, controlling, or bigot. His autobiography, while a bit dull, also didn't suggest an ugly character. All limited info, certainly, but we work with what we got.

That first one, The Messenger, is quite good, apart from his weak voice.

I'm just teasing of course but he always struck me as dull even when was interviewed during The Smiths period. Not that is a bad thing and I imagine he was more than happy to let ol' bigmouth strike again.

I agree on both counts. I wonder if he's ever thought of doing a complete album of instrumentals.

Quite a few people whose personalities appeal to me have said that Marr is as sound as he seems.

When The Smiths played Reading University back in the 80's I spoke with Johnny and Andy briefly and they both seemed decent guys.

Maybe you're right. But Morrissey still sings those songs better than anyone.
