The Smiths are never going to get back together, and anyone who wants them too really should focus their energies on something more productive. Not my words, the words of Johnny Marr, ladies and gentlemen.

Speaking to The Japan Times, Marr said: “If people get genuinely upset and frustrated that four men that last played together 25 years ago are doing other things, then those people need to go and find a hobby. They really do. If the band only split up two years ago it might be a different matter, but 25 years? Come on. It’s a long time. If you like The Smiths, the records, photographs and memories are all plenty to be getting along with”.
