Johnny Marr Working With New Band

Following his recent work with Modest Mouse and Crowded House, Johnny Marr is collaborating again, this time with Wakefield indie band The Cribs.

The Jarman brothers have been writing with the former Smiths guitarist in Stockport, with a view to recording demos today (January 25).

Cribs bassist Gary Jarman met Marr at a barbeque in Portland, Oregon, where they both live.

Marr joined Modest Mouse for their 2007 album “We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank”.
