Johnny Marr is one of the few living players who might be referred to as a “guitar hero” with a genuine nod of reverence. During his five years with The Smiths in the ’80s, through which he drew acclaim early on as a remarkably imaginative guitarist, his love for collaboration and self-development drove him to work on outside projects. Over the years, Marr stayed busy with The Pretenders, Electronic, The The, and more recently as a member of Modest Mouse and The Cribs. And while the association with his earlier band will always be of interest, peers seek him out for the unique sparks and colors he might bring to their sound. Marr’s a gifted musician who may always wear a mantle of celebrity but won’t be defined by it. (via Johnny Marr: Home Is Where You Plug In | Under The Radar)

David Guetta is basically… it’s not even something that really makes my blood boil because it is just bullshit. It is an abomination but there needs to be bad music around. You need Jilly Cooper novels and pulp, trashy culture. Plus, some people like shit music. I don’t like David Guetta and I don’t like that style. What bothers me more really is that a lot of hip-hop is being played over those backing tracks, and I find that a shame because I like hip-hop a lot. — Yannis Philippakis via NME (via audiobashjay)
