Perhaps, just perhaps, the greatest British band of all time? The greatest band anywhere? It’s been 28 years since they split, pretty much by accident in 1987 and still nothing has really replaced

that magical concoction of Northern art house whimsy and post-punk chops. I came across a fantastic site, SmithsonGuitar, which is an archive of interviews, photos and videos of Marr in his pomp. There is also detailed tab of pretty much every guitar part Marr recorded. It only took me 5 minutes to whip out my capo and storm through the intro to Bigmouth Strikes Again. Its a great site.
