MOJO PRESENTS: Marr And Friends (2013)

frontMarr And Friends (February 2013)

The latest free CD from the February, 2013 MOJO Magazine is a gathering of The Smiths’ Johnny Marr’s pals. Both of Marr’s contributions – “The Right Thing Right” (from his upcoming solo album) and “The Last Ride” – are outstanding, and will make you wonder why he spent so much time hanging around with Bor… uh, Morrissey (sorry, my bias is showing). Overall the disc is a good listen, if Brit-centric, illustrated best by Billy Bragg’s spoken word monologue over an acoustic rendering of The Left Banke’s “Walk Away Renee.” 129 more MOJO‘s in the archives (HERE).

    No worries about Borissey. I found it funny and totally understand, I refer to another popular musician as Djork.

    Just out of interest, why shouldn’t a compilation based around British guitarist Johnny Marr be “Brit-centric”? Apart from Modest Mouse, which other American bands with whom he’s associated are missing here?
