Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr just announced his next solo release will be a double album titled Fever Dreams Pts. 1-4, with the first EP in the set arriving March 15 and the new single Spirit, Power and Soul out today.
For me, this is no big deal, though I guess I like The Smiths, Marr and Morrissey as much as the next guy. Unless, of course, the next guy is my Smiths-worshipping Sonic Reducers cohost Eric Alper. For him, the arrival of new Marr music is more than important enough for us to talk about in today’s segment. Listen in as we discuss Marr’s upcoming project and his new single, go through the lengthy list of the former veteran guitarist’s post-Smiths collaborations, and beg Johnny to hit us up for interviews. For shiggles, Eric will even tease us with a story about the time he tried to sign Morrissey. Sonic Reducers: One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
