    Johnny Marr Drops By Amoeba - brokenheartboy

    Johnny Marr recently dropped by one of the amazing Amoeba record stores in California and was snagged to do a quick video of what he was purchasing. Pretty cool to hear what the genius is thinking music wise. And no, there is no talk of a Smiths reunion. Sighhhhhhhh. Have a look:​

      Has "Untitled 1" been confirmed as 'I Misses You' then?

      'And no, there is no talk of Smiths reunion'..... Obviously, it won't happen i reckon the closest is maybe just a Marr and Morrissey one off or something.

      I adore Johnny Marr. I need him to go shopping with me next time I'm out for music and dvd's!

      No - no Smiths reunion, but a Morrissey and Marr reunion would be quite nice...

      I think Johnny's hair is looking very nice these days...it went off the rails for awhile, but he seems to have got it together lately...I wonder if he's using that 'caffeine' shampoo..perhaps Moz should try it?

      Is he still with Angie? You can see an "Angie" tattoo around 2:07 but it looks partially erased.

      He's still with Angie, yeah. I think it's probably just faded slightly.

      Very enjoyable to watch. Imagine what he and Morrissey could do with their own culture show, and a few live numbers thrown in between them! :thumb:

      yeah, i know what you mean. johnny's a sharp fella. his knowledge of 60s pop is second to none. his reading tastes also show he's no lightweight. i'd watch a culture show hosted by johnny in a heartbeat. his tastes match up with mine really well.

      you might find this vid interesting (if you haven't already seen it). really enlightening.

      Lovely interview but when is Marr gonna age? I gotta get me some Just For Men...getting a little white on the sides. :(

      Love the appearance from Yoda.

      Wire...wow I remember seeing them at the Rose Bowl as one of the opening acts for Depeche's 101 show. I liked their single Eardrum Buzz at the time and I still have The Ideal Copy on cassette!

      Finally, Marr "poor"? Hardly.
