THE MESSENGER BY JOHNNY MARR

"When you hit it right on guitars in pop, it can be vivacious and exuberant and shiny. I've fond remembrances of bands like Blondie. Without being retro, if I'm really in the mood for it, that's what the guitar is for me. If people say parts of the record sound like the Smiths, I'm OK with that because hopefully it's got the same exuberance."

Johnny Marr was speaking to The Guardian.  Upstarts is taken from The Messenger which is available to download from Itunes or Amazon.  You can pick up the cd or vinyl version at Resident.
