Johnny Marr & The Healers - Free Christmas (instrumental)

Earlier this year, Johnny Marr announced he was leaving The Cribs after a three-year stint with the band, and said he’d be re-focusing his efforts on writing and recording new solo material with his band The Healers. Today we see the first results of that, via a free Christmas song named “Free Christmas,” naturally that the ex-Smiths guitarist is offering up to fans.


UPDATE:  Johhny Marr BBC 6 Music Vinyl Revival (18/12/2011)
Johnny reveals how he first bonded with Morrissey over a box of 7 inches, the start of a great songwriting partnership that would create classic hits over The Smiths' five year lifespan. Throughout his music career, Marr has challenged his skills as a player and a composer and drawn on a diverse gallery of influences. He reveals some of acts he has "borrowed" riffs from.

Cool as Ice: The Be Music Productions

VA - Cool as Ice: The Be Music Productions (2003, LTM)

One of the forgotten chapters in the story of New Order involves the group members' outside production work during the early '80s. In different combinations -- often including all-important input from A Certain Ratio drummer Donald Johnson (as Dojo) -- Gillian Gilbert, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris, and Bernard Sumner produced a slew of releases under the name Be Music, most of which were released through Factory. This compilation is built around the more club-oriented productions, many of which have held up remarkably well throughout the years, despite the fact that they've been heard by a crowd far too small in number.

16 Johnny Panic - Not Bitter But Bored
17 Johnny Panic - Stay With Me
18 Johnny Panic - Paranoia

A unique idea - a compilation of all the original psychobilly/rockabilly bands that Morrissey's unique backing group have ever played in. Henceforth, you get The Polecats (Boz Boorer) The Frantic Flintstones, The Gazmen, the Sharks and the Nitros (Gary Day) Alain Whyte (The Sharks, Johnny Panic) and The Stingrays (Johnny Bridgewood). 

Boz Boorer - was in the brilliant rockabilly band The Polecats, but could often be found playing live with The Deltas and The Frantix
Gary Day - On the rockin' scene, Gary Day played on and off with The Frantic Flintstones, The Sharks and The Nitros (who often recorded as Colbert Hamilton's backing group). He also recorded with The Gazmen, which was basically The Sharks with the addition of Morrissey's guitarist, Alain Whyte.
Alain Whyte - long time Moz collaberator and guitarist who was in a few obscure rockabilly bands before teaming up with The Sharks to record as The Gazmen, and then went on to play in and produce Johnny Panic and The Bible Of Dreams.
Johnny Bridgewood - one time Morrissey bassist came from the psycho/garage band, The Stingrays.

During the past twelve years of its existence, Radio B92 has traveled a long way. It was the very first radio station in this corner of the world to put diverse styles of urban underground music on air. Back in 1989 it was the distorted guitar noise of Mudhoney and My Bloody Valentine, hip-hop breaks of A Tribe Called Quest and BDP and the sophisticated house grooves of Mr. Fingers and Inner City.
In the years that followed, besides regular broadcast, B92 has been supporting Yugoslav alternative acts through numerous record releases as well as creating a lively club scene by organizing hundreds of parties which have presented both local and famous international DJs such as Slam, DJ Hell, John Acquaviva, Phil Perry, Misjah, Trevor Rockcliffe and many more.
Utopia Revisited was the first release published under license in Yugoslavia since 1991 and there is only 1,000 copies. The inner sleeve of cd contains a short story called "Utopia Revisited" by Matthew Colin, author of Altered State: The Story Of Ecstasy Culture And Acid House. Dedicated to all the Belgrade people who have hammered a spike into dial-jog at 92.5 FM. Radio B92 - founded in '89, still surfin' the waves.

This release is the Smiths volume in a series of compilations of 12" mixes released for many artists in Australia. Because the Smiths only had "This Charming Man" remixed, it is the only song in this compilation to fit the theme. The others are the versions as they appeared on the 12" singles, so identical to the album versions.

10 Je Vous Pardonne Tout

“Listened to the right records growing up, and this album proves that the heart is still what matters when it comes to making great music” 
Andy Rourke from THE SMITHS

"With such a depressing album cover you might expect the music of this Seattle based solo artist to follow suit, but this album provides quite the opposite. Despite lyrics covering topics like lost love and dissatisfaction, Coulter manages to sound like an upbeat Morrissey, if such a thing exists."  
- Lifestyle Magazine (UK)

“Sent To Coventry’ is pop with thoughtful musings layered over jangly, guitars. Give It A Chance is about as raucous and as catchy as it gets.”
- Birmingham Sunday Mercury (UK)

“Like a destitute Morrissey performing Killers covers onstage at a local pub, (this) selection of songs wouldn’t sound out of place being performed on a 1980’s Eurovision song contest”
- What's On (UK)
