Ex-Smiths axeman Johnny Marr has been greasing up the old hype machine for his forthcoming solo debut, The Messenger, with radio appearances and similar ilk. Last week, he appeared on Dermot O’Leary’s BBC Radio 2 program, where he performed not only one of his latest works (“New Town Velocity”) but dug into the archives some with a cover of The Smiths’ “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want”. Decades later, it still sounds just as tender, sweet, and warm. So, find yourself a museum today, and escape into his guitar sounds below (via Slicing Up Eyeballs). Or, stream his full appearance here.
