Johnny Marr og The Rolling Stones

20. juni 2015

Johnny Marr (The Smiths) har løftet sløret for sine favoritalbum i The Quietus, og det er interessant læsning (fordi det altid er interessant at læse om, hvad der musikalsk set bevæger andre – inkl. kendte musikere). Om Rolling Stones’ Out of our heads (den britiske udgave uden “I can’t get no Satisfaction”) noterer han til slut (og mange vil sikkert kunne genkende denne ‘forelskede’ optagethed af en bestemt gruppe eller kunstner:

“There was a point where I was into The Stones more than any other band on the planet. I found out everything there was to find out about them – about the band, about Andrew Oldham and how they made their records. That investigation was really good for me. When I formed The Smiths, they were probably the biggest influence in terms of the politics and the blueprint for a band, including the dynamic between the guitarist and the singer. When I was trying to get The Smiths together, I took the behaviour of Andrew Oldham and Brian Jones in their resourcefulness, desperation and ingenuity as the MO of The Stones as a working unit, as a source of inspiration – which was a pretty unusual thing to do in 1982.”

Og det giver mig s̴ en anledning til at spille en af mine favoritter med Stones РThe Last Time:

PS. Jens Unmack er også omkring Johnny Marrs personlige hitliste.
