The legend for a generation, Johnny Marr, played in Detroit last night. What an amazing show! He played songs from his new album, a handful of Smiths greats and a couple of Electronic hits as well. A friend described it best in his 2 word review "Morrissey who?" Johnny didn't miss a beat and I didn't miss Morrissey on vocals on the Smiths tracks at all. Johnny is the consummate professional, a class act and a really nice guy! Come back soon Johnny.
As we normally do after a great concert, we feature tracks from that show. We open the show with a handful of tracks featuring Johnny Marr.
The mail service has been getting lax again, It took a few extra weeks for a couple of the new LPs to show up. We finally get to play a couple KVB tracks for you tonight. The Blow Monkeys are in the LP Session. In case, you've seen some posts elsewhere, we played MBV's "New You" off their newest LP. It bears a slight similarity to The Blow Monkeys 80s classic "Digging Your Scene".
Hope you enjoyed the show.
