Smiths in the media - Marr interview, Fletcher book review, Girlfriend In A Coma series

Johnny Marr interview -
MORRIZSEY and also Uncleskinny posted the link to the interview with several Smiths references:

Johnny Marr on the Smiths, ‘The Messenger’ and Going Solo After All These Years


Were you just not ready to go solo then?
I’ve been forming groups since I was 14 or 15. I had just come out of a group and wasn’t keen to form another one, but was keen to play with my friends and people I thought were interesting. Luckily I got a lot of invitations and that was unexpected and things took off in a way, which I hadn’t anticipated. The group I most wanted to be in was The The. Matt Johnson had asked me to join when I was 17. but I was too broke to afford the train fare to move to London so I stayed.

If you had the train fare, would The Smiths never have happened?
Maybe, yeah. But I didn’t have the train fare.

it was revealed that Morrissey lived in suburbia, drove a minivan, and spent his weekends wandering the corridors of the local mall with his dim-witted wife.
That made me smile .... wouldn't that be nice ... somehow?
