Bernard Sumner: "Johnny Marr inspired my new band's name!"


from the Ice Age to the dole age


When you worked with Johnny Marr, did you have to handcuff him to a synthesizer ?

"I was trying to encourage him to play more guitar. I'm like, "Johnny, if you don't play guitar on this album, I'm gonna get the blame." And that's what happened. Synths were a no-no with the Smiths (2); it wasn't allowed by You-Know-Who."

Playing synths for spite, why I never!
