    Joyce Michael on Radio 4's Today Programme this morning

    Anyone else hear this?
    There was a feature on bands lending their songs for use on adverts, with a couple of minutes spent discussing the John Lewis ad, and Joyce Michael's views on the subject.
    He basically said that Marr and Morrissey were welcome to the money - well he's changed his tune a little!
    (NB - mods/DT please don't copy this post verbatim to a news item, thanks.)

    Related news, Absolute Radio have stuck the Smiths' version of Please Please Please onto their playlist, and are giving it a lot of plays.
    One of their DJs said the other day "I love the fact that an ad is giving us an excuse to playing more Smiths!".
    Good on 'em, frankly.

    Both that advert and that cover of Please Please Please are fucking wretched

    Mike Joyce on Radio 4 Today Programme

    Discussing artists allowing their songs to be used on adverts. He seems to support Moz and Marr giving permission for 'Please, Please, Please ...' to be used on the John Lewis commercial. To hear this bit, skip to 1 hour 10 mins in.

    The whole programme is guest edited by Stewart Lee and is quite interesting. It features the genius comic book writer Alan Moore giving his thought for the day, a bizarre interview with Mark E Smith and experimental trombone fading into the pips.
