In a universe where The Smiths legend is repeatedly soiled by the unhinged witterings of his royal highness Lord Moz; it’s a source of great comfort that at least 50% of that great songwriting partnership, Morrissey and Marr, continues to create inspiring music of his own, whilst being the ultimate genius guitarist for hire with a string of revered artists.
Marr’s third solo studio album, Call The Comet, was released in June to much critical acclaim. The album, surely Marr’s best, is a brilliantly eclectic mix of styles held together by that trademark jangly guitar style, single ‘Hi Hello’ would sit snugly on any Smiths album, it’s that good.
