Mat Whitecross discusses future plans in interview with NME


Having reunited the Gallagher brothers to work on Supersonic, Whitecross admitted it would be perhaps even more difficult to get Morrissey and Johnny Marr’s involvement in a potential Smiths documentary.

“I think that might be the fight that kills me,” Whitecross joked. “[But] I’m just reading Johnny Marr’s book at the moment and it sounds like they met up at least once, and no one murdered anyone else so you never know. If they’re up for doing a film then yeah. Anything like that, we know Johnny’s manager’s, he’s a good friend of ours so maybe I’ll try and get on the phone one day and see how it goes.”

"Please please please let me get what I want" cover by belgian TV show participant Aline On The Roof and belgian band Puggy :


Interested to hear Clint Boon relating a story that he once thought for a joke after seeing piles of earth on the moors where workmen had been doing something that him and a few of the Inspiral Carpets would stand on said piles of earth in a crucifixion pose and scare cars going past. He did wonder if the story in Autobiography about something similar happening to Moz was indeed him. Also tells a story when he was asked to interview Moz and due to having other things on (kids and gigs), could not do it, roll on a few years and he is asked to interview Moz but when Moz finds out it is Clint Boon due to interview him, he backs out as Clint had cancelled on him last time.
