Bestival 2013: Snoop Dogg, Franz Ferdinand, Johnny Marr & The Knife Rock The Boat


Snoop Dogg Bestival Franz Ferdinand The Knife Elton John Johnny Marr

Bestival drew to a close last night (8th Sep) as thousands of revellers - dressed in their finest ocean-themed gear - celebrated the ten year anniversary of the annual fancy dress and performing arts event. Mermaids, Vikings, Tritons, Neptunes, and plenty of Spongebob Squarepants watched rapper-turned-reggae-singer Snoop Lion (formerly Dogg) headline the main stage on Saturday night.

As all eyes turned to the red, green and yellow backdrop, everyone wondered if and how the new Snoop - the one who claims to be an incarnation of Bob Marley - would do things differently to the shizzle and bizzle of the 'Smoke Weed Everyday' days. Turns out, things had barely changed. Before the big man himself had emerged onstage his 'hype' crew had already asked the crowd which coast their loyalties lay with and if anyone had smoked weed that day. Lion then sauntered on stage looking as laid back as ever and begins to perform 'Here Comes The King' whilst suspiciously subdued.

Still Brill! NME God Like Genius Award For The Smiths Johnny Marr


Johnny Marr The Smiths

Good news for former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr! He’s a God-like genius! That must be reassuring to know.

The axe-wielder, who also has an exhaustive list of other bands and collaborations, including working with The Cribs, Modest Mouse, Nile Rodgers from Chic, The Pretenders and New Order’s Bernard Sumner, among others, has won the NME God Like Genius award for 2013. The gong is basically a life achievement sort of thing, recognising the talent of an artist over many years of work.

"The NME seems to be good at giving this award to people I like so I'm in good company. I guess it means that some things are alright with the world," Marr said in a statement. He’s in good company indeed; The Clash, Paul Weller, The Cure, Manic Street Preachers, New Order & Joy Division and Dave Grohl have all won the award in the past. Last year’s winner was Noel Gallagher. NME editor Mike Williams said that it was Marr’s continuing evolution that had led to the award. "He's continued to push boundaries and evolve throughout his career, working with some of the best and most exciting artists on the planet," said Williams, reports Reuters. Of the other awards, Haim, Tame Impala, M.I.A and The Rolling Stones are all up for four categories each.

NME Awards Johnny Marr 'Godlike Genius' Title, 2013


Johnny Marr The Smiths Modest Mouse The Cribs Morrissey Noel Gallagher

Johnny Marr will be crowned Godlike Genius of the Year at this year’s NME Awards. Marr, whose distinctive guitar licks were combined with Morrissey’s song-writing skills to make The Smiths the legendary band that they are, has also played in Modest Mouse and – more recently, joined the three Wakefield brothers The Cribs.

The NME Awards will be held at The Troxy in East London, on Wednesday February 27, 2013, where Marr will collect his gong. Marr’s about to release his debut solo album The Messenger and speaking about the award, said “It is a very nice thing to be getting this award and I am honoured. The NME seems to be good at giving this award to people I like so I’m in good company. I guess it means that some things are alright with the world.” His previous band mate Morrissey won’t be expecting any such honour any time soon; he has fallen out with the magazine on a number of occasions, most recently when they printed an article that he felt had branded him a racist.

The magazine’s editor, Mike Williams, said “All hail Johnny Marr, NME Godlike Genius 2013 and the newest recruit into NME’s holy order of music legends. And what a legend he is! Not content with rewriting the history of music with one of the world’s greatest ever bands, The Smiths, he’s continued to push boundaries and evolve throughout his career, working with some of the best and most exciting artists on the planet.” Johnny follows in the footsteps of 2012’s Godlike Genius, Noel Gallagher, which just goes to show, there’s no justice in the world. Or no huge commitment to chronology, perhaps.

Meat-Free Festival Promised If The Smiths Reform For Coachella Festival


The Smiths Morrissey Johnny Marr

Coachella Music Festival are still a while away from announcing their headliners for their 2013 event, but if reports are to believed there is one act they're absolutely desperate to get back together for the event. It's believed that the festival organisers are so keen to reunite cult band The Smiths that they have offered to ban meat from the entire event if the British indie band do reform.

There've been long-running rumours of a comeback ever since the group split up way back in 1987, with founding members Morrissey and Johnny Marr reportedly getting offered offered as much as $4.5 million to get back together. The song writing duo have so far stuck to their guns on the matter though, insisting that they're not interested in reuniting. Morrissey now has a large back catalogue of solo records behind, whilst Marr has lent his guitar talents to everyone from Modest Mouse to The Cribs. However, it's now emerged that Coachella have promised staunch vegetarian Morrissey that they would ban all meat products from the Indio, California site for the entire event if he reunited the group for a headline performance.

Morrissey famously stormed offstage at Coachella in 2009 after smelling smoke from the on-site barbecues, and he told Australia's News.com.au that they first made the offer for the 2010 festival. "[After 2009] the agents for Coachella offered a 100 per cent vegetarian event for the following year if I would agree to headline with Johnny Marr as The Smiths" Morrissey commented. "Fascinatingly they made it clear that they would 'not require' the Smiths' bass player or drummer... which I thought certainly said something."
