Let's start a small tribute to Johnny Marr. It's not only that NME awarded him with the Godlike Genius award, hailing him as "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." It's also that, after some decades as a band member in various projects or as a highly respected session musician, he's about to release his first solo album, "the Messenger". In the meanwhile Mojo's previous issue contained a brilliant cd with many of Marr's collaborations, which actually gave me the idea for this tribute; no Smiths albums should be expected though.
The first part of the tribute is about the group he formed with Bernard Sumner of the New Order. The offered upload is the group's first album release.
Rigid Alien Funk (1983) - I swear to god this is what disco would sound like produced by asexual robot aliens. It's actually kind of disturbing. here
