Johnny Marr & Andy Rourke Perform How Soon is Now?
You can get the full details about this show on Brooklyn Vegan here.
If you listen to the excited roar of the crowd at about 0:47 secs, just as Marr introduces Rourke, you can hear the fact dawning on them they are about to witness something amazing. I admit - I'm not usually one for reunions and I only got into the Smiths about five years ago, but once I 'discovered' them they became one of my favorite bands of all time. Just hearing this while I type is giving me chills. And of course this track is a classic - even before being a Smiths fan this one meant something to me.
I'd still wager no matter what we'll never see these guys joined by a certain Mr. Morrissey, so this is probably as close as we're ever going to get.
But then, I've been wrong many times in my life. I'd like to be wrong about that.
Thanks to Brooklyn Vegan for posting this and making my day pretty much within moments of my waking up.
