The Johnny Marr concert last week in Brooklyn was so epic, it’s hard to even put it into words. Just to see Johnny play the guitar was a treat, but also his new solo album “The Messenger” is great, he played a handful of Smiths songs, Andy Rourke of The Smiths guested on stage giving us probably the closest thing to a Smiths reunion that we’ll ever see and also did a pair of songs by Electronic! Wow! The video you are about to see is “Getting Away With It,” the first single by supergroup Electronic. The studio version of the song is a duet between Bernard Sumner of Joy Division and New Order and Neil Tenant of Pet Shop Boys and as you are about to see, Johnny Marr makes it his own! Go Johnny, go!
History was made last night during Johnny Marr’s excellent sold out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 3, 2013. He brought his old friend and Smiths band-mate Andy Rourke up on stage for the show’s finale, “How Soon Is Now?” Epic is an understatement, but you can draw your own conclusions. Just press play!
I won’t be forgetting May 3, 2011 any time soon. It’s the day I met pop goddess Kylie Minogue! She was extremely cool. In addition to taking a photo with yours truly, she signed a photo for me that I took on her last tour. Wow Wow Wow Wow! I saw her Aphrodite Les Foiles tour last night and it was incredible. The show features amazing costumes, dancers, acrobatics and music that will put you in a great mood. The show is a must see (and take my word for it – I see several hundred bands a year). All I can say is thank you so much Kylie. I believe in you!
