Johnny Marr - Call The Comet

What's Hot
KylefKylef Frets: 604
Out today and listening on Spotify. 

Admittedly I'm a big fan of Johnny’s, but on first listen this is a cracking record. I knew the singles were decent, but on the whole this is probably the best solo album he’s done yet. Well worth a listen.

    When I first heard the single 'Hi Hello' on the radio I thought bloody hell that band sounds like The Smiths, even the singer is trying to sounds a bit like Morrissey.

    Good song and his singing does sound a bit like Moz, if anyone has the right to sound like The Smiths it's JM isn't it?

    Michael Fish is God

    He was on the Chris Evans breakfast show on Radio 2 this morning, came across as a thoroughly nice fellow.

  • This is an excellent album, especially the deeper cuts in the second half. Such a tasteful guitarist.

    He's a nice gent, and a great player. I've been impressed with his recent work (as well as The Smiths obvs) and I've heard this album is really good. I've got a vinyl copy on order but yet to pick it up...

    This album seems to be getting good reviews.

    Like the single, so will check it out. 

    This is is also a good watch, yes a Fender corporate vid, but still good.

    I’ve just booked tickets for the tour. Like the new stuff and his previous solo material. He also plays a few Smiths tunes live so should be good.

    Seen his solo show a few times now (off to see him in Bath this time round) and you won’t be disappointed. He does seem to be able to conjure up a decent Morrisey impression during the Smiths numbers too.

    Thanks all for this thread, I didn't realise he'd added a load of UK dates to the tour. Yesterday I snagged tickets to his Roundhouse gig in November. Never seen him live and really looking forward to it!
