Johnny Marr, recording with Modest Mouse

Just to prove you can’t keep a good man down, Johnny Marr resurfaces with style, not only joining US billboard-chart toppers Modest Mouse (below a video of them playing their new single, Dashboard, on Letterman) but also as a contributor to the new album from recently reformed Crowded House.

The story goes that when previous (and heavily Marr-influenced) Modest Mouse guitarist left the band, the lead singer Isaac Brock  figured he had nothing to lose by picking up the phone and dialing Manchester! Looking positively rock-defiant, super cool and with a near-perfect indie-haircut, I think it would be fair to say Mr Marr is back in the game.
