Johnny Marr is now a member of Modest Mouse!

This is some of the craziest yet coolest news I've heard in a while!


http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/page/n...f_Modest_Mouse

What began as merely a flirtation has now blossomed into a full-blown romance, as Modest Mouse and ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr have gone public with their intention to stay together forever and ever (or at least until the end of the next Modest Mouse tour).

You can read more at the link provided. I'm suddenly REALLY looking forward to this album.

Same. Good News For People Who Love Bad News was so disappointing. I wasn't all that optimistic about the new album, but all that has changed now! Bringing new blood into a band is always exciting.

Heh?

I think that Bury Me With It, Dance Hall, Bukowski, Blame it On the Tetons, Black Cadilacs & The Good Times are some of the best songs they have EVER written. Especially the last two!


But yeah. The new album should be incredible.

I don't know. I just couldn't get into it as much as I tried. I do love Bury Me With It, though! And I think The View works better as an upbeat song than Float On. But still...there just wasn't anything there that clicked with me like The Lonesome Crowded West or The Moon And Antarctica did. Which reminds me, I haven't listened to LCW in such a long time... "He said that God takes care of himself, God takes care of himself, and you of you."

Since we will probably never, ever see a Smiths reunion, this might be the next best thing.

Holy shit! How did that happened? I never would have imagine something like this would ever happen. So all the sudden Modest Mouse needs an additional guitarist and it happened to be Johnny Marr? It's cool but sounds weird. The next album should very interesting.

Way to make every other band on the planet insanely jealous. Should be interesting.
