    Johnny Marr on His New Solo Album, Why the Smiths Won’t Reunite, and the Time He Almost Fell in a Volcano - SPIN
    Maggie Serota // September 25, 2018

    Excerpt:

    I’m not going to ask you if the Smiths are ever going to reunite, because I know the answer is no. What I will ask is, do you feel like you dodged a bullet not reuniting given the political positions Morrissey has taken recently?

    I don’t know whether I dodged a bullet because of that. I just feel like we never reformed because we shouldn’t have reformed. I don’t like ‘dodging the bullet,’ because there’s so many reasons why we haven’t reformed. I think that’s fair to say, and I don’t think that would come as any kind of puzzle or surprise to anybody. I don’t feel like I dodged any bullets. And also we never really got close to reforming, except for a conversation that happened quite a long time ago.

    What did you think of that “Classically Smiths” event that kind of fell apart very quickly with Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce?

    There wasn’t really much time to think anything of it. I heard about it when everybody else heard about it, which tells you all you need to know, really. It was particularly disrespectful that I wasn’t consulted, and I kind of feel it was a farce in the way it went down, really. I thought about it how I imagine everybody else thought about it, that it was really kind of sketchy. That is disappointing to me, that the band gets chained to that kind of sketchiness. It’s a good thing those guys weren’t organizing the gigs when we were together, otherwise we would’ve never gone on the stage.

      Bla bla bla. Fek blikey mate. I reckon when was the last time John Maher and Air Steve played together like 1983? I mean played music not basketball because that happens at least once a month when John comes down from Portland, Oregon and him and Air Steve run fools at the Venice Beach courts in Moz Angeles. I hate the Smiths.

      Nice, considered, intelligent and diplomatic response from Johnny. As usual. You won't easily provoke Johnny into a remark he'll later regret.

      That's probably the most redundant comment I've read here in a long time, and that is saying something.

      What was Andy Rawk's involvement with Classical Smith? He had at least some involvement, no?
      Odd as I thought he'd stayed on good terms with Maher over the years so you wouldn't have thought he'd be willing to piss him off as much as this obviously has.
      And for those who thought that Joyce Michael was just a poor hapless exploited drummer in the whole Smiths case, this Classical Smith debacle really does hammer home just what a cynical, desperate greedy twat he truly is.

      Morrissey uses the word 'hater' like Taylor Swift, who is more than half his age.

      I don’t think Andy stayed on good terms with either Morrissey or marr. I’m not saying there’s a feud but hes seemed pretty annoyed at both of them In the recent past.l especially in that daily beast interview

      Serious question M_S...do you feel that there is an empty void in your life that you attempt to fill by posting shite on various websites? If so, it's probably time to get a grip. You are getting the same sort of reputation as Skinny...and there really is no worse insult.

      Peace and love. TMF

      :rolleyes:

      the word 'hater' has been around for many many years unlike 'skectchy' which is of very recent snowflake provenance.
      o_O

      taylor swift is up there in years and also has gained considerable weight as of late.:straightface:

      Serious question, do you fancy your self a psychoanalyst? Please dude, get a grip yourself.

      I have my opinion, you have yours. Don’t read too much into my opinion and certainly spare the self-righteous judgement. You know nothing about me.

      And the irony of your post is not missed - sit back and reflect why you had to respond to my post and then determine if you’re filling some void of your own by responding to a post that had nothing to do with you directly? I didn’t attack you - why attack me? You went out of your way to respond directly to me, not the other way around.

      By the way, new Robyn single “Honey” is out today!!
