Johnny Marr Says Smiths Reunion Hinges On David Cameron
Marr made the initial comments earlier this week when picking up the award for Best Re-issues at the Nme Awards for their 'Complete' box set. He commented "We won't be reforming this week. Maybe if the government stepped down. If this government stepped down, I'll reform the band. How's that? That's a fair trade, isn't it? I think the country would be better off, don't you? I'll do it if the coalition steps down." Marr's tongue may well have been in cheek, but Prescott evidently took it seriously enough, following his previous tweet with "Please reform cosheavenknowsweremiserablenow," in another witty reference to another Smiths song.Whether it happens remains to be seen, with the group's front man Morrissey a notoriously stubborn man. They're one of the last of their contemporaries yet to get back together however, with The Stone Roses announcing their comeback last year and fellow Mancunian acts such as The Happy Mondays and The Inspiral Carpets following suit.
